Alright so I have a pretty basic question hopefully someone here has the answer too. Basically I would like to connect to the internet via my Laptop why? because my laptop is connected to a alfa wirless adapter which gets way greater wifi signal then the PS3 does and from my understanding I cannot connect my wireless adapter directly to the PS3. Thanks in advance.

As far as I know you can't use a Laptop as a sort of router for your PS3, it just doesn't work like that.

If you have Windows 7, Connectify emulates a Wireless Router on your PC. You can connect to the Wi-Fi AP from your laptop, then use Connectify to rebroadcast the signal to your PS3.

 

That is, if you have Windows 7 and a supporting network card that can transmit in AP mode... This is Windows 7 only as the libraries needed to emulate a WiFi router only exists on W7.

tried connectify no luck just kept dropping the signal and yes i do have windows 7 this really sucks I need to find a way to make this work I hate to sound cheap but I really dont feel like paying 60 bucks a month for broadband when my laptop gets it for free with the alfa wireless card just seems point less to pay when Im already getting it free.
