How do I connect my PS3 to the Internet?
My Ps3 three is all the way across the house from my wireless internet (Linksys). I have the Playstation set to pick up wireless signals but the strength isn't strong enough to maintain a steady connection. Can anyone tell me what to do?

Well, there are a handful of options.

You can run CAT5/CAT6 network cable from the router to whatever room that is in.

You could run powerline adapters that would allow you to push the network signal over the power outlets in your house via special adapters. However those often have a lot of signal quality issues when going between circuits

You could set up a wireless repeater to pick up the wireless signal at a mid-point in the house and re-transmit it.

You could replace the antenna on the PS3 with a directional antenna and point it towards the router to get a better signal (I don't really know if this is possible with a PS3, but technically speaking the possibility exists)

An actual cat5 cable is better for gaming anyway as it is faster and more reliable than wi fi.

You can get a 50ft cat5 cable on amazon for $5 to $10.

The biggest issue with running cable is how to run it. Most houses don't have convenient conduit to run through, although ventilation ducts might work.

The ethernet over power devices help with that, but they can perform very poorly in some installations

Behind the baseboards sometimes works too. If you have them.

A game where you get to fly planes and fight on Playstation 3. That you could have at least 2 or more people playing without internet. What i mean today is that you get to fight with F-22 Raptors and such. Please put the name of the game.
