It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.

Try connecting to your router with a cable and see if that is able to get you online.
If it does, then 9/10 its a signal problem.
If it doesn't, then you have a settings problem.
Also, is your router close enough to the ps3 to supply sufficient signal to the console? From my experience, the router needs to be pretty close to the ps3 for it to get a good signal or if you have a wireless N type router. Wireless b/g routers usually need to be very close to their source for it to be fully effective as the ps3 requires.
