    Alright, take it one step at a time. Are you going into System Preferences > Sharing and turning on Internet Sharing? You will want to go from Airport to your Ethernet..

    Edit:
    Here is a thread on the PS3 http://forums.macnn.com/92/networking/323056/mac-os-x-internet-sharing-playstation/

    .. it looks like manual connection settings were necessary for a successful connection.

    Note: The crossover cable may not be needed. If you get it working with the crossover cable and manual settings, try it with your original cable and see if it works. If it does, then you can return the crossover cable from where you bought it.

    I'm sorry you made the trip, and it still isn't working for you.
