[Q] PS3 Tether with Vista?
I have done plenty of searching these forums and the internet for the answer to my problem and I can not find one. Hopefully someone will have some insight. Here is what is about to cause me to ram my head so hard into a rock wall that it releases a 10.0 earth quake on the Richter scale:
I live in the middle of no where (just moved) so I do not have access to a cable internet connection. I get cell service. I want to use my PS3 to play some online games. I should
be able to give my PS3 internet through my phone (rooted or not).
Here is my setup:
PC: Vista (I know, crap...blah, blah, blah...I hate it, but it functions for school)
Phone: Droid Eris, Rooted, FroShedYp-CM6.2-RC1-Desirec.
What I've done:
Started with the Rooted Wireless tether app that came with phone, set it up, PC picked it up, I could browse the internet, use Ventrillo, ect. I then connected the Ethernet cable to my PC from PS3. PC took a while to identify it and it kept re-identifying it. In my network settings I check the the "allow sharing, blah, blah, blah" for the wireless network. I go to my PS3 and test the wired connection. It fails!!!!
Well, crap! Now what? Oooo, I have a wired tether rooted app. Lets try that. So I hook up the wired tether and follow same process as above. Nothing. D@mn!
Ok, so now hair is being pulled out of my head! The light turns on. I have EasyTether and that is supposed to do what I want (It better because I paid money for it, right?). I go to the website and follow their instructions.............still nothing!
Now it is time to use my good friend Google. I get on and find a YouTube video of some guy doing what I want but with a Windows 7 OS. AND IT WORKS! Awesome! He did everything I did; the only difference was Windows 7.
So, I now has an idea
. I go grab my Grandpa's laptop that has Windows 7. I follow the steps like I saw in the video and are written everywhere. The closest I get now is getting an IP address for the PS3 and then the internet connection fails! AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!
I do some more research online and run across a program (Conectify) that I am supposed to need now. Well, this doesn't help. I still don't have Windows 7 on MY PC which is where I need to run this new network out of!
Oh yea, and now my PC does not pick up my Rooted Wireless App......at ALL!
Please XDA, someone out there must be able to help!!!!!
