Please give some information on your router and modem brand/model, also what type of connection do you have, cable, dsl, etc. Go to speedtest.net and post your upload and download speeds as well.
Are you connecting to your play station wirelessly or through network cable directly to the back of the PS3?
Depending on your speeds your connection could be overloaded by the high demand the PS puts on your internet connection, or if you are wireless you could be in far range from where the router is located. Hope this helps. The extra information might help.
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.
Since you did not include the type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router. Also answer this question " When you plug your computer to your modem do you get online automatically or do you need a username and password"
Whenever you connect a different device to the cable/DSL modem the modem itself must be reset. Dont even waste a phone call to linksys. Its useless.
If you are using DSL depending on your ISP you may have to enter your account info into the router's PPoE section
Cable users should have the router set to "Obtain IP aadress automatically"
Use the reset button on the back of the router and start from scratch. Unplug the cable/DSL modem power Hook up your router WAN/Internet to the Cable/DSL modem Ethernet/LAN jack Power on the Cable/DSL Modem first, wait about a minute, then power on the router.
conect the cables correctly, connect the dsl cable to the internet slot and a ethernet cable to the modem and the laptop, check if u r able to go online wired first, if not contact ur isp at&t and they would help you out to set it up first, and then u can check
