Thanks for any help.
Just wondering if it was possible to use a 3 MOBILE DONGLE to access the internet on a PS3. ie my dad hasnt got internet and i have a usb dongle and needed my fix of COD MW2 when i stay at his house.

you could use the dongle on the laptop and internet share with the ps3

you need to plug the dongle into a computer/laptop then plug an ethernet into ps3 and laptop and 'share' the connection. google it. and before you ask it wont work straight on ps3 as it requires drivers.

You can get internet but afaik the connection won't be fast enough for COD

Exactly...and to be honest gaming doesnt eat up any bandwidth really, its more to do with ping. I reckon a 1Mbit connection would suffice, as long as you hitting below 50 ping.

didnt think of ping really, pings are pretty stupid on mobile broadband, but should still be playable..

well if you think when ps3s were first released in late 2006 the average internet speed in the UK would have been around 3Mbit I'd imagine... thus should be fine, given the ping is ok.
