    What are you trying to accomplish with this? Wasn’t even aware you could directly connect your PS3 to your pc via Ethernet cord.

    What is telling you that it is trying to identify network? The PS3 or your Computer?

    Step 1: Make sure your PS3 is connected to the same network (via Ethernet or wireless) as your computer. You can check your connection by going to Settings > Network Settings.

    Step 2: Go to Settings > Network Settings > Media Server Connection on your PS3 and set it to "Enabled."

    Set up your computer (PC)
    Step 1: Download and install the latest version on Windows Media Player.

    Step 2: Go to Library > Add to Library and add folders you want your PS3 to access. All personal folders (Photos, Videos, and Music) are selected by default, but if you have media in other folders, add them.

    Step 3:. Go to Library > Media Sharing, and check "Share Media." Press "OK," then wait a few moments for your PS3 to show up as one of the devices. Then select it, click "Allow," then "OK."

    Set up your computer (Mac)
    Step 1: Download and install PS3 Media Server (free). This will allow your PS3 to "see" your Mac.

    Step 2: Connect to the same network as your PS3.

    Step 3: Go to Navigation/Share Settings and uncheck everything in the Thumbnails section (at the top). Then, at the bottom, add folders you want your PS3 to access. You can choose to add your entire hard drive, but it's helpful to add shortcuts to folders like Music, Videos, and Pictures.

    Step 4: Go to Transcoding Settings, and change the Maximum bandwidth to 14 or 15. If you have a very strong network connection, leave it at 0. If you don't have a 5.1 surround sound theater, go to the "Number of audio channels" settings and change it to "Stereo."

    Step 5: At the top, hit "Save" and "Restart HTTP Connection."

    check you have done all these things...
