    I presume you have a cable internet connection. Does the Motorola modem have an ethernet connection ? If it does and you want to go wireless then you will need to get a wireless broadband router and connect it to the Motorola modem. This will then allow you to connect your PS3 wirelessly to your internet.

    Yet another option is to invest in some homeplugs - these send an internet connection via a wall plug around your house - no wires / a better connection (the Ps3's wireless connectivity let's be honest is not great :( )

    You will also save your brain damage from all the microwaves floating about in the ether :D

    Having a router will still be handy but not essential. Look for devolo and solwise branded models.
