Default Re: Dial up Wifi Key for PS3 would this work?

Alright thanks for the info there NeonFire. I think i'll just order it, its only $40 so if it doesn't work its not like I wasted a pile of money. I was really hoping I could take all the bandwith for the PS3. I'd really like to play madden08 with some of my friends. I don't know how much bandwith that would take and if it would even be possible.

The only games i've tried lately that have been alright in multiplayer on dial up is Lost Planet and World in conflict. Although I have a tough time playing more than 4 person in Lost Planet I seem to get disconnected 80% of the time when I try 6 person matchs. And WIC i'm limited to 4 team games.

Phones are CAT3 (And occasionally CAT1)
Ethernet is CAT5/5e and Cat6

My PS3 has never left the house, let alone the library.

They are a little over 100-110MB, right? That would take a long time on dial-up. I just bring my laptop to the library and transfer them over from there.
