hello, i have a problem i need to split my internet from my cable modem to my ps3 and to my wireless router heres why...
i have a ps3 that i play games on, it works (hardwired) to my wireless router, except one game will not connect unless i plug the ps3s ethernet cable directly into the cable modem.i like this game and will jump through a hoop or two plus fix it for the next game
so my question is what can i use to plug my ps3 directly into the modem and also let the router be plugged in too.
can i use a y cable, rj45 spliter, hub, or a switch. i'd like to save money and keep up my network speed (a minor speed loss is ok)
i have roadrunner high speed 15mb per sec, i use my ps3 the most so that gets priority
i can make a y or a crossover cable myself, i just don't want anything to get ruined
also i had the ps3 in the dmz on the router and nat type was 2, plus the ports open for the game so i'd like to keep the ps3 off the router but also have the router 4 everyone else
thank you for any help you can give
