My problem is the belkin wirelwess router it keeps disconnecting itself from the servers
Do you have similar problems with other wireless clients (notebooks, desktops, anything?)
1st : try a different wifi channel on your router--channel 1, 6, 11 are best choices, if your area isn't already congested.
What level of signal are you getting on the PS3? You can check the STATUS of the Network connection to see in % how well it's connecting. Anything less than about 90, and I would get disco's frequently. Heck, even with a wifi access point sitting within a few feet, I'd still get occasional disconnects.
The bottom line with wireless--in a perfect environment without interference from other devices, a PS3 can operate fairly well. But, in the real world, the overall competition for those frequencies varies in each and every area, if you're not having any luck, and have tried reorienting, changing channels, etc., about the last thing within the WiFi arena--drop your accesspoint/router down to a lower data rate if you can. The slower the rate, the more distance and more resilient the wifi can be. Try 5.5mbs, or even 1.1.
If all fails, the BEST method is of course, running some network cable and ditching the wifi connectivity. You can count on a wired connection no matter how many cordless phones and microwaves are in the area.
