    Hey Guys...
    I'm currently connecting my PS3 to my PC through the Ethernet Cable but I would much rather do it wirelessly so I want to get a WiFi USB Key...
    Can anyone who does already have one or has used one suggest a good one so that I can go out and cop that...
    Thanks

    Why do you need a wifi stick.. If you have the 60gig then you have built in wifi.. just go to network settings and change it from wired to wireless

    I think he wants a wifi key for his computer to share his internet connection using ad-hoc. I highly recommend that you do not buy a wifi key and buy a wireless router instead. Its much more efficient and easier to setup, also you don't need to keep your computer on to use wifi on your PS3.

    Some good wireless routers:

    Aren't they just much more expensive though?
    I'll have a look around for a good one...
    I'm not bothered about having to have the PC on because it's normally on all day anyway...

    The cheaper ones cost pretty much the same as a wifi key. And even the cheaper routers are several times more efficient than a wifi key, ESPECIALLY for online play. But building off that last comment if u play lots of shooters online and bullet lag makes you a sad panda id definitely say stick with the ethernet cable, Ive tried both and it makes quite a difference sometimes.

    OK, well then I'll probably stick with the Ethernet Cable...
    I notice the signal strength is always perfect with it when I play games like FIFA and I do enjoy playing shooters...

    One quick question guys...(I didn't wanna start a new thread)...
    I upgraded to 2.00 last week and since then I haven't been able to play Resistance:Fall of Man online because it says it requires an update...
    How is that?

    did you download the recent patch for Resistance? If not it should prompt you to do so when you try to play it online. If you have downloaded the patch already then I don't know what the problem is.

    Do you know where I can get it from?
