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.

Hi, please perform the steps below to configure settings on the router:
Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari). 2. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar. 3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive). 4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu. 5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'. 6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase. 7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.
In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.
Please scan for the wireless network on the PS3 and connect to the wireless network.
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.
The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.
wel becouse the modem is older than the new ones and the conection would no longer be recieving upgrades,even if you conected the ps3 or your xbox you would not have a strong enough conection to be able to play online peacefully i recomend u get braodband wit 3-7 meg connection and then u should have no problem conecting either console to your router/modem
