I want to know if it's possible for a PS3 to be connected to the internet via a VPN?

  • 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 :) – Oscar Foley May 24 '13 at 13:46
