Yes, you can connect a PC wirelessly to a DSL connection. You will need a wireless access point/router and connect that to the DSL modem via USB or ethernet. Configure your PC to attach to the wireless access point/router using the wireless (802-11a,b,g) or eithernet.

PS3 can only get an online connection with DSL or Cable WiFi or ethernet

You will need to use an Ethernet connection in this case. Ethernet is a lot faster than a phone line. You will need a coax jack and a modem in order to have an Ethernet connection. For more convenience, you can just get an Ethernet wall jack installed if you don't have one yet, and you can just get an Ethernet cable to connect from the Ethernet wall jack to your computer, giving you a high speed internet privledge.

A USB Ethernet adapter is in no means, a necessity for you to buy. However, it comes with benefits if you don't have a home based connection set up. They allow computers without Ethernets to hook up, a USB Ethernet and still have a home based connection.

yes you can connect to the internet with ethernet cable. To enter the network you must be online and to be online you must have a Broadband internet service and some form of connection device/s that will allow either WiFi or ethernet connection to the PS3

You need an internet connection which is not the same as a computer although many also have an online connection

That depends on the TYPE of internet connection available to you. Two common types of internet connection are: ethernet over a cat 5 cable, wireless ethernet If you want to connect over a cat 5 cable your computer will need a network interface card (NIC). Most (but not all) modern computers are manufactured with a built in NIC. Often it's part of the motherboard. If your computer doesn't have a NIC card you can purchase that piece of hardware and plug it in to an available expansion slot. If you want to connect over a wireless ethernet your computer will need a WIRELESS network interface connection. Most laptops have a built in WiFi adapter, but again, you can purchase THAT piece of hardware and often it can be plugged in to either a USB port or the PCMCIA slot, depending on how your laptop is equipped. There are options for connecting to the internet using your USB port.

A wireless router is a device that performs the functions of a router but also includes the functions of a wireless access point and a network switch.In essence, it allows you to connect to the router without an Ethernet cable and have access to the internet.

You can buy a Wi-Fi USB connector from Nintendo; you place it in a USB port on your computer and it broadcasts your internet connection to your Wii. You can also buy an ethernet modem and get the Nintendo Wifi ethernet adapter and hook up your Wii to the internet. You have to have a cable or telephone jack around though to do this.

The Ethernet port is usually the largest socket on the computer (about twice the height of the others). You run your Ethernet cable from the computers Ethernet socket to a similar socket on a device called a Router. The Router is connected to your telephone line or cable TV or however you have chosen to connect to the Internet. You will need to have set up an account and pay for the Internet connection with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) who is often your telephone or cable TV supplier. The ISP will often include the Router as part of the connection package. Computers (particularly laptops) will usually have built-in wireless connectivity, for example all recent Macs come with AirPort, which will connect to a wireless router without the need for a an Ethernet cable. This means that a laptop can be used anywhere within the range of the router. the ethernet cable connects you to lan

The internet connection needs to be made before the connection to the computer the router goes between the broadband and the computer. Try a wired connection with a purchase of an ethernet cable that goes from the back of the PS3 to the router or modem. A wired connection works best with the PS3 so that it doesn't have to maintain a wireless signal. Try using your connection without the router or computer and then adding them after your PS3 has already been connected. Just plug an Ethernet cable into the back of the modem and the Back of the PS3. After that works add the router between the modem and the PS3 and finally plug in the PC into the back of the router. You really don't have to do it this way but it will allow you to gain confidence that the problem was never with the PS3 and just your setting up of the connection.
