Can I get online using a USB cable?

  1. The modem of my internet connection connects to the internet through USB
    (not ethernet), so i wonder if i can connect my PS3 to the internet by connecting the PS3 directly to the modem through the USB cable?

  1. Do you mean USB modem right? Access internet from PS3 console using USB modem - Can't ...but you can connect internet using Windows Internet sharing ...plug in USB modem to your PC/Laptop. Enable internet sharing. Set manually IP address for your ps3 and gateway put your PC/Laptop Ip address. Hope this give you some idea

  1. It shouldn't. USB is too slow of a internet connection, and Playstation Online requires High speed broadband access.

  2. No, you can only get your ps3 online through its ethernet port.
    Don't bother trying mobile broadband either, I did and it failed.
