    Using Macbook's internet for PS3

    Right, my ps3 is out of range of the router, due to lots of brickwork etc. My macbook however gets a very good connection.

    I want to connet my router wirelessly to my macbook
    and my amcbook wired to my ps3.

    Then use hte internet through it. I tried lots of things but I cannot do it. Any advice.
    I have netgear router and 60gb ps3. And it's a normal macbook.

    I think you need to set up a wireless network access point on your mac.

    I think this is the way to do it

    There is an internet sharing option on my mac, but i don't know which settings to use

    I dont think you can use internet connection sharing with wireless can you?

    What makes it a little more difficult (for me anyway lol) is the PS3, i dont think its as configurable as a pc so it may cause some problems, nothing that cant be overcome though so dont worry

    ICS on wireless, i will just look into it quickly for you, brb

    Presumably you've connected mac and ps3 together so far? Do you have access to your media files yet?

    Not tried. You can do it though. The macbook is acting as a bridge.

    bump. help!

    You can connect the PS3 to the laptop with a crossover cable and enable internet connection sharing or you can set up a wireless ADHOC connection between the laptop and the PS3 which will allow them to connect at 11Mbps.

    But if he runs it Ad-hoc won't it cancel his connection with the netgear router?

    Crossover cable would be best bet imo. :thinking:
