  1. Most modems can only be attached to one device at a time, so I'd say no.

    If your modem has a built in router, then yes, but your question/topic suggests you don't want to use a router.
  2. Yes, if you install a second ethernet adapter in your laptop. Or if it already has one. You will need to create a network bridge on your laptop to enable your ps3 to use your laptop as a sort of router to your modem. It is pretty easy and is something I have done a couple of times.

    If you are going to use ICS (internet connection sharing), you will be better off getting a router otherwise you have no connectivity when the computer is off.
  4. This is true but it is much cheaper to get a second network card then getting a router. Just depends on if you keep your computer on while you play.
