Re: Can't stay connected
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.

Well the first thing to do is try to isolate the problem. Before we start make sure the 1st PC will give the same network cable unplugged error if it too is unplugged. Once that is done start by unplugging the network cables from the PCs and switch them. Does the problem stay with the 2nd PC or does it move to the 1st?
If it stays with the 2nd PC then the problem is with the PC network card or more likely its configuration. The network card should be configured exactly as the 1st one, probably to obtain the IP and DNS addresses automatically. If you need help with this let us know the operating system you are using.
If the problem moves to the 1st PC that indicates the problem is with the cable and/or the router. Now switch the cables at the router end, if the problem stays on the 1st PC then that network cable is your problem. It could be a ?cross-over cable or simply damaged. If it doesn?t move then the problem would be in your router. Either that router port is bad (try using another port) or the one port that works is configured uniquely. You?ll need to take a look at how your router ports are configured and look for the differences.
Let us know what you find and we?ll go from there.
