I currenlty play online games on my computer almost every day, and enjoy surfing the internet. However I also have a PS3 in which I also enjoy online gaming such as Resistance: Fall of Man. However, I cannot play both at once. To play I would have to take the (ethernet?) cord out of the back of the computer that went from it to the router, and instead plug it from the router to the PS3's back. I tried to use the PS3's "Scan for Wireless Source" system, but there was no points detected.
Long ago I had a wireless router that went sort of like this:
Cable Socket in Wall -> Router -> Wireless Router -> Computer
This system was mainly put in place so my mother could use her laptop at the same time that I could use my own PC. This worked, for the most part, but I had many problems with it (Random disconnections from my game, as well as random freezes of the internet). After a while the wireless router decided not work anymore, so I plugged the router directly into the back of the PC, and my mother got an 'aircard' from her company. I no longer have problems, but I also have the same old problem of switching the cables.
So now I want to get a new wireless router for gaming on both my computer and PS3 at the same time, but the terminology used in defining products online I go looking through are dreadfully confusing (I'm usually more of a software person, hardware still confuses me). I would like to know, how would I set this up, and what router should I look into? I've heard certain wireless routers don't work well with the PS3's interface.
