Ok, I have a Verizon internet card( broad band, air card, whatever you call it ) and I tried to use it on the PS3 but it doesn't seem to work. Is there a way to make it work with or without an ethernet cable?
I suspect not directly. Would it not be a USB device? It is in reality a modem and it needs to be connected to a USB port in a PC in order to work. The only way you could use it for your PS3 would be to create a LAN between PS3 & PC and enable ICS ( Internet Connection Sharing) in the PC. The other thing is that given Verizon's exhorbitant excess usage charges I would not recommend using it for online gaming. The other downside to your proposal would be the inherent speed limitation of these type mobile "broadband" services. They typically operate at about 10% of the capacity of cable or DSL broadband and operating it via a PC using shared internet is only going to slow it further.
