Can I use a wireless adapter to connect ps3 to internet without using a cable
I have a linksys wrtn that I just got and a belkin n1 that it replaced. Packaging Details Item NO.: It should work fine with another 11n wireless router, it uses ethernet to connect to the ps3' gigabit network card. No, you can't use the Wifi piece in the PS3, at least without modification. I have game adapters just in case I have problems. Thank you for helping us maintain CNET's great community.

PS3 WiFi Adapters

This will get you the most wireless bandwidth. Knights of HalfBros Resistance Clan: Dont bother until Wireless N becomes more stable You don't really need all that bandwidth anyways,. I am going to play with my Wireless G repeater and see if I get better streaming stability. Cleary wiring CAT6 is the best solution, but also most work attic, etc. Well, I just picked up a D-Link Anyway, I'm hoping that the PS3 can take full advantage of that router, tho. I'm about to upgrade from my Belkin 54G router to the D-Link N router, hoping that will improve things.

G is probably good for Mbps, N probably That's throughput, not link speed. USB is good for That may be the best wireless method It is the WGAN. But it is not clear if the wired port is gigabit. I have a linksys wrtn that I just got and a belkin n1 that it replaced. Could I connect the the belkin to the ps3's ethernet port and have the linksys connect to it at n speed? I really would appreciate any help. I am curious to try it but afraid of frying the ps3. Unless they come out with a wireless N adapter for the PS3, getting a Wireless N access point is worthless unless you have a laptop that is capable of doing it.

Currently the N product has not been officially approved by the FCC yet. Looks like end of this year or early next. Come join our adult gaming community at www.

Should work fine on G. The two chipsets you have is Broadcom for the Linksys and Atheros for the Belkin, mixing chipset vendors for WDS bridging the technical name of what your asking for is not well tested and typically doesn't work very well with links being dropped and lots of wireless troubleshooting work required.

The first one is to get a If you pair it with a gaming 11a router, you will get LIKELY not guaranteed get better performance since fewer people use the 11a's 5Ghz vs.

This will net you Mbps of raw dataspeeds, which translates into Mbps of real data wi-fi uses a lot of overhead to handle the wireless connections and error correction. The second option is to use a powerline ethernet product like the Linksys PLK You will also get lower latency read: And yes, you are sending data over your home's powerlines to transmit the data. The 11a solution will cost you some money, but you may find bargains as 11a isn't as popular and you may find stuff on ebay and craigslist for cheap.
