Would it work if you connected an Ethernet cable to a modem and then to a ps3 to play on line?

If for instance you have a PC connected to the internet with an ethernet cable at a cable modem you can unplug the ethernet cable to the PC at the modem and Plug in a ethernet cable from the PS3 to the modem and a connection to the internet is possible. If the PC and PS3 are close enough you can just unplug the PC ethernet cable at the PC and move it over to the PS3. The first time you do this you need to go to the PS3 network setting and auto set the network settings. When you are done using the PlayStation 3 you just unplug the ethernet cable for the PS3 from the modem and plug the PC cable back into the modem for the PC to go back online or switch the cable back if it was close enough. When you get tired of doing this just purchase a router and plug the PS3 and PC into the router and plug the router into the modem.

What kind of Ethernet cable do you need 4 a ps3?

You can get by with the CAT 5 ethernet cable, but for just a little more you can purchase the CAT 6 ethernet cable which fits into the same slots and has better specs. Buy the best quality cable at a reduced price. I would recommend a name brand and not some cable online for 99 cents and a ton for the shipping from China or just there profit. I was able to purchase a 50 foot Belkin Gold Cat 6 for under $20 at EBAY including s/h and saw shorter cables for half that.

Is there a way to play PS3 if you have Hughesnet Satellite Internet?

If you already have HughesNet satellite internet you might see how it connects to your computer. PS3 can only be connected with either a Ethernet Cable or a wireless signal. You can not use the USB port in the front of the PS3 to connect to the internet. PS3 is supposed to work only with broadband or DSL. The related link for Hughesnet listed a phone number and they indicated that while it would work it would provide poor online game performance and was not recommended. They did say that it connected to the PC or other device with an ethernet cable.
