I think you need to explain in more detail how you are connecting everything.

If you're using a USB Modem, is this connected to a PC with the PS3 "networked" to the PC and "Internet Connection Sharing" enabled on the actual internet connection (the PC's connection to the USB Modem)? If this is the case, the PS3 won't "find" the USB Modem, it will get its internet access over the network from the PC which is online.

(important info:my computer knowledge is very limited!!)i'm connecting the usb into my laptop,and then i went into control panel, select "allow other users the use this internet connection" (as the nice man in the shop told me to) and everything will work. but the ps3 doesnt find it at all? do i need a router? or a cable of some sort?? :-S
