LAN without internet?
  • I have been trying to link PS3s without an actual internet connection, with no luck. I remember on my old 360 all you had to do was hook 2 together with and ethernet cable and it worked, but we have tried linking 2 systems with straight ethernet, and crossover, with no luck. we even tried using and ethernet switch with different combos of straight and crossover. no matter how we did it, the PS3s would recognize each other in COD black ops, as in, when u go to lan party and one person creates and starts a match, the other system will see that match, but when u try to join, it says connection to host lost. how do you get 2 PS3s or more, to link together without having an internet connection? please help
