Re: modem to router to hub to wireless
What you can do is test the PS3 while wired to the router first. If that does not work you may need to forward ports on your router so it will allow the PS3 to accept connections through the router firewall.

I see that you have replaced you modem. Have you tried connecting your pc directly to the modem? If you do not have any internet connection when connected directly to the modem, you have to call your Internet Service Provider to setup your new modem. If you can access the internet using your new modem then there is a problem with the router. You have to re-setup your router to make it work.
I think you will need to reconfigure the router. You can access the Internet when you connect the computer to the modem. That means the modem is working fine. Connect the modem to the Internet port on the router and computer to port 1 on the router. Press and hold the reset button on the rotuer for 30 seconds. Release the reset button and wait for 30 seconds. Power cycle the router and reconfigure it. Follow this link to reconfigure the router.
If nothing was changed in the router after connecting your PS3, possible that the devices are not syncing properly. Do a power cycle. Turn of all of your devices including the router and the modem. Wait for about a minute and turn them on in this order. Modem, wait for the lights to stabilize, then the rotuer, wait for power become solid gree. then turne the Laptop and PS3. See if this will help.
Basically the PS3 wireless settings needs to be configures with the Netgear wireless router settings.
To test if the modem is connects to the Internet, connect a computer into the modem, if it works then the modem is configured correctly. If it doesn't work, then contact your ISP and get them to test your modem connection.

Have you tried configuring your wireless settings? If your internet works hard wired, its just the wireless settings that need to be configured. Access the router's setup by going to http://192.168.0.1 and change the wireless channel. Make sure to check the wireless security as well and verify if you are using the correct wireless network key
you can put your ps3 in a dmz zone. if still does not work its not your router. u can keep your ps3 in dmz and get your router to open ports. u can call your router company. If still does not work its not your router more than likely. It might be your modem. i have at&t and that was my issue. i went to dmz on modem and allowed it to pass through dmz zone and ip addresses to pass through. but make sure on your comp u have spyware or something. Your ps3 can not get virus.
I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.
Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.
I would check the ip addresses for the modem & the router.You can do this by typing a command line from the "Run" entry on the Start menu. At the command line type in ipconfig /all & there you will find the ip addresses. My hunch is that they are both set to 192.168.1.1 - you will need to change one of these to something like 192.168.2.1.
Normally, all ruters are hubs as well. if you want to connect it as a hub only; try connecting only the ports minus the WAN port that goes to the DSL modem. In this case the router will behave just like a hub.
