Howdy,

What are you trying to achieve - just adding the one computer by ethernet cable? If so you can just plug it straight into the computer from the modem you already have.

If you are looking to add more than one computer then you can use an unmanaged switch to give you more ports.

Cheers

The PS3 should have received a connection fine. Can you confirm it is connected to the modem on the other end? If you plug your computer in to it does it work?

If you want wireless though, you will need to add a wireless router.
