A router is only to distribute a source of digital data among several end users. It cannot increase connectivity speed. For home use, the most likely use is to connect several computers to an internet connection, whether that be dial-up, DSL or cable.

How do you hook up your PS3 to the internet connection?

PS3 ads tell you that Online connectivity requires broadband internet service and network devices such as a DSL or cable modem. That means don't think about dial-up, cell phone or USB port online connection because they will not work.The ethernet cable goes to your router or modem, not your computer. Once your PS3 is connected to your television and you already have WiFi you go to the settings menu and then the internet connection. For many people that already have a home internet system you will need to purchase a wired router and ethernet cable or a wireless router. If you have dial up you will not be able to connect the PS3 to dial up. If you use a USB port system to connect to the internet you will not be able to connect the PS3 to it. The PS3 must be connected with WiFi or ethernet cable. The ethernet or wired connection provides the best signal and I use it even though I have a wireless router.
