    Whats up, MacRumors? I have a dilemma:

    I live in a two story home, with the only ethernet port located on the ground floor. I like to play PS3 online, so I connect it directly to my router on the bottom floor. I would like to be able to move the playstation upstairs, as the tv is much better, but theres no ethernet port. Is there a way to use my MacBook Pro as a wireless access point for a PS3 without having to connect anything directly into a port?

    Yes.

     -> System Preferences -> Sharing -> Internet Sharing -> Share your connection from (Ethernet) to computers using (AirPort)

    He said he didn't want to connect anything though.

    Sorry, I guess I just filtered that through the common sense centres of my brain and missed that bit. Something is going to have to plug into that ethernet jack. If you don't want to connect your MacBook Pro and can't connect your PS3, you're going to have to buy a wireless router.
