So I live in a dorm and the college network has WPA2-enterprise secured wireless, which is incompatible with the PS3. Unfortunately, all ethernet ports have long since been deactivated in the dorms. I have been using my laptop (running Windows 7) as a bridge without a router (instead of sharing the connection, which hopefully is the right terminology). I just have an ethernet cable between the PS3 and the laptop and it's always worked just fine, although it has always given me a NAT 3 connection - undesirable and prevents playstation network from working ideally. It hasn't affected my ability to communicate with other players until I started playing LittleBigPlanet2, and I'd just like to play with my friends again.
I'm not sure if it's possible to get NAT 2, which they told me will allow me to play with them again, without a router or another living situation and network entirely, but I thought I would ask here just in case. I haven't found any information online about this specific issue.
