Here are a couple of things to try. You're probably already done this a million times but I'll walk through the connections just in case. Hopefully these instructions will work with the Linksys router model you have.
Power the router up by plugging in the power supply. Plug in an Ethernet cable from your broadband modem to the port in the back of the router labeled "internet". Plug in another Ethernet cable from your computer to any one of the four numbered ports in the back of the router. Hit the reset button on the back of the router. You may need a sharp object like a pen or pencil to poke it. Reboot your computer. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the administration tab. Then click on the factory defaults sub-tab. The sub-tabs are in blue just below the normal tabs. Hit yes to restore factory defaults. Now see if you can connect to the internet through the router.
Might I suggest checking out this site, http://www.ps3chat.com/playstation-3-online/1351-routers-ps3.html . I think that the Linksys router is having issues keeping the connection alive on your PS3. You should also consider setting a static IP.
have you plugged everything in with the modem off and the router off?
have you tried unplugging the linksys for a sec then plug it back in?
also have you checked the pin connection on the plug on both the computer and the router?
what are the lights indicating?
Ok, cable (coax) comes in from wall and attaches to modem. Ethernet cable goes from modem to WAN Port of router. You may have to reboot both devices to ensure that your modem (internet service provider) assigns IP address to your router. If PC is close enough, attach new ethernet cable from one of the 4 ports on your router down to your PC's ethernet adapter. (where your modem used to plug into). Router will now assign an IP address to your PC and you should be able to access the www.
Good Luck and let me know if you have any more questions.
