I've been trying to work out what is the simplest solution to getting my PS3 connected to the internet. I've got a PS3 with ethernet cable, an ADSL modem which is connected to my PC via USB port and a PC with no network slot. I was thinking that I should be able to simply plug one end of the ethernet cable into the PS3 and plug the other end into my ADSL modem (by using a RJ45 to RJ11 connection adapter) and that would be it. However, upon visiting my local Maplin to purchase said RJ45-RJ11 adapter, they said they didn't stock it and when I explained what I wanted it for, they said it wouldn't work anyway and that I need to buy a router. After some further discussion, I left to ponder and try to get my head around what I really need to buy here. So, if I buy a router, I can see that I can then plug my PS3 ethernet cable into router, which then connects to my ADSL modem (unless the router has a built in modem). So, I think that means my PS3 could then be connected to the internet. (Presuambly I'd have to buy a network card to allow an ethernet connection from my PC to the router). Do I really have to buy a router? Why can't I just plug my PS3 straight into my ADSL modem via an RJ45-RJ11 adapter, or is their some other device cheaper than a router? I feel a router is overkill as I'll hardly ever by using my PS3 online - just the occassional demo download, so would happily just unplug my PC from the modem until finished the PS3 download. Thanks for any help.
