Windows 7: PS3 Problem

PS3 Problem

OK so since swapping to 7 from XP I've had a problem with getting my PS3 online. It's setup so my internet goes from my router to my PC via Ethernet and then from my PC to my PS3 via Ethernet again. Currently this is what my connections look like, obviously the top one is my PC to router and the bottom is PC to PS3. How do I get them as one or to allow the second connection internet access?

Thanks in advance.

Connect the PS3 to the router either wirelessly or by cable.

Take the cable that goes from the PS3 to the computer. Detach it from computer and connect it to router. If it's not long enough, use wireless.

I can't do that as it's in another room. I don't want to do it wireless either.

Why would you not want wireless? With WPA2, it's as secure as cable.

Because I haven't had to with XP, why should a new version of Windows change that? Are you saying that I'm not going to get this to work the way it was? If so I think I'll just go back to XP.

I'm showing you the best way to go about things regardless of OS in use. XP is a great OS, so go back to it if you wish.

7 is better and can do what you want. In my opinion, it shouldn't be what you want.

My PS3 is sat next to my PC, why would connecting it wireless to the router be better then cabled to the PC? Regardless of if it's the best or not how can I get it to actually work?

Because the PS3 will not depend on your PC at all and traffic will not get routed through the PC either, saving resources.

You can turn off PC and still use PS3 on the net.

The PC is always on, so that doesn't really matter.

You seem to want this to work rather much. Although I completely disagree with it, I'll offer advice anyhow.

Type services.msc in the start menu search box then hit enter. Make sure Internet Connection Sharing service is set to automatic and started too.

If you still can't get it to work, assign a static ip to the nic connected to PS3.

Then on the PS3, assign a static ip with an address on the same subnet.

The 10.0.0.x range is good to use. When assigning ips, for default gateway, tell them to use the other machine's ip address you assigned. In other words, make them each (PS3 and computer) default gateways for the other.
