I have made one of these a while ago im determined to do it this time. Ive bought myself an extra ethernet port so i stand a greater chance.

Hmm have you tried going into settings on pc and "allow other users to connect over this internet connection"

if you mean to allow ur ps3 to work off your pc wireless connection the cable you need is a 'Crossover' cable, i used to do this with my xbox instead of buying a wireless adapter

edit: this video might help , i used a MAC so dunno how similar it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4i6DHkOYho

I'm not in uni halls or anything, but I do this to connect my PS3 to my PC so I can stream videos. It also gives me an internet connection so I am connecting to the internet via my PC...

- Set a static IP for the network card your PS3 is connected to. Note down the IP (mine is 192.168.0.1)
- Go on your PS3 and enter these settings:
~ IP address: some IP on the same subnet as your PCs network card (the one the PS3 is connected to). I have put 192.168.0.100
~ Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
~ Default router: the IP of your network card (in my case 192.168.0.1)
~ Primary DNS: same as above
~ Secondary DNS: leave blank at 0.0.0.0
~ Use the default settings for everything else (e.g. MTU, duplex, no proxy server, etc)

On your computer you now need to enable Internet Connection Sharing. I didn't have any success with Bridging. Right click your primary network card (the one used to connect the PC to the internet) and go to the Advanced tab. Select "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection.."

Edit: Just seen when this thread was posted! Whoops. Well, hope my post helps you out timo126 anyway!
