    Hi,

    I have a ps3 and am using ftp to transfer files to it.
    I was using my modem/router with the network lead plugged into it.
    I bought a pcmia card gigabit ethernet card and plugged it into my tower,
    I plugged the network lead in and tried connecting to the ps3 but it cant find a ip address.
    I installed drivers from the card but still no luck.
    Is there sonething else i have to do?
    Do i have to change any network settings on the desktop or ps3?
    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers

    Is your PS3 connected wirelessly to the internet?

    No only ethernet.
    Works via midem/router but only 10/100 not gigabit.

    Your computer is not a router, so it doesn't give IP dynamically (DHCP) to connected devices.
    You have to set the informations to both your PC and your PS3 network devices manually.

    You could do something like this:

    computer side :
    In the network setting, go to your Ethernet device preferences, TPC/IP screen and set :
    IP 192.168.2.1
