The PS3 will only connect to an access point, so unless your computer is the one with the wireless router, it won't connect to your computer. Just wondering, but why does it matter anyway?

Yeah, that's a router ... and if they're right next to each other, why not use a wired connection?

I've tried everything for my computer, and still haven't found a way. B ut if I connect via Ethernet it will work, that's with a laptop though

Ok, I just solved this problem on Windows 7 64bit. In the Network and Sharing settings. Click on "Advanced Sharing Settings" There is an option in there called MEDIA STREAMING. Enable that option, and if that does not work click on "choose media streaming options" and in there is a list of connactable devices. Make sure they are on 'allow' and there ya go. All connected. ^_^
