    Do I just have to hook up the modem to a cable connection and then ethernet out of that? or do i have to have the modem hooked up to a PC for it to work?

    So would I just connect it to the cable, and then put the ethernet from that into the PS3 and it should work?

    All you need is a cable, and an internet connection, just like wireless but with a wire.

    Yeah, I know. Less hassle using wired. I find using wired gives me better connection/advantage over people.

    PC may be used in the set-up process, but not for connecting XBOX/PS3 to Router/Modem.

    One more thing, do you have a connection already, just connect a cable to that. If it is wireless use the function of the wireless to connect your PS3, I'm sure you do, If you're on this site.
