What kind of VPN? A bridged or routed? –  Krazer Jan 1 '12 at 5:33
    
The simple answer is yes, but you need to expand on the detail in your question. I'd recommend a migrate to superuser as this is offtopic here. –  Rory Alsop Jan 1 '12 at 12:12
    
@Krazer a routed one i suppose. But i don't know how to proceed with this. –  Charming Prince Jan 1 '12 at 13:00

@CharmingPrince If you get a crossover cable, connect it to a computer or laptop and PS3. You should be able to shat the connection with you PS3. Take a look at this: windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/… –  Krazer Jan 1 '12 at 21:33

If you get a crossover cable and connect your PS3 to a computer or laptop. You should be able to share the connection with your PS3.

Here is a guide on how to enable Internet Connection Sharing on your Windows computer.

These days, the vast majority of network ports will auto-detect and auto-negotiate crossover; you might not even need the special cable. It's worth trying with a normal Ethernet cable, since it'll take like five minutes and probably won't fry anything. –  Tacroy Jan 31 '12 at 22:48

Not probably. 100% sure is not going to fry anything :) –  cad May 24 '13 at 13:46
