Can one who get their internet service to their PC through a USB mobile internet device (Cricket) set up Internet Sharing from their PC through their PC NIC to a PS3?

Could be expensive, but if you set the PC as a gateway (or is the PS3 the gateway?) matter of setting static gateway IPs...

I Want to use the PS3 online but it cannot connect to the internet by USB so I wondered if the Internet Sharing thing of Windows will work by connecting the PC to the internet by the USB Internet Service device then interconnect the PC with the PS3 by ethernet cables.

Theoretically, yes. As long as the PS3 will recognize an onboard NIC as a dedicated connection, it should work. I know people who have done similar with two NIC connections common on most new boards. but it can get fiddly.

As long as the USB port on the computer is compliant with USB 2.0 standards, you should be able to use a USB to LAN adapter, similar to this one. Then just add a 2-port or 4-port hub or router into the setup between the computers and your ISP port.

Karlsweldt, the PC works fine with the USB Broadband Internet Connection device, the kind mostly used with Notebooks,

http://www.mycricket.com/broadband/

it goes online and all, it's the PS3 that doesn't work with that device. I want to drop a eithernet cable between the NICs on the PC and the NIC on the PS3 in order to start Internet Sharing from the PC and the PS3.

What kind of cable is required, strait or crossover?

Should be crossover. If there were a router involved, it wouldn't matter, but for direct NIC to NIC connection, a crossover is needed.

Found a specs link for the PS3. It is supposed to have 4x USB front, 2x rear.. noted as USB 2.0
If both the PC and PS3 can access the Internet, fine. But the OS types are not the same, one has Windows and the PS3 has the Linux-type OS file system. Problem with compatibility. But there are 'translator' programs that allow both OS types to work fairly well together.
As noted by fussnfeathers, if a direct link, a crossover-type cable would be needed.. but for LAN only! There is no direct link for USB, unless you use a device such as a Buslink file transfer cable.
Not sure about your ISP setup (user interface), but some designs will not work a LAN and USB port connection simultaneously. Others will.

I think you have to use a powered USB hub, but don't quote me on that one.
