Go to start->run on your computer, and type "cmd"
When the command prompt comes up, type "ipconfig /all", this will list all of the information about your IP address. Find the DNS Servers option, and copy that onto your xbox.

So what I found out was to put in the IP address you find in ipconfig/all but add one to the last octive. Example if yours is 172.16.1.25... then in your ps3 type in 172.16.1.26
Then I was using the primary and secondary DNS numbers that my computer was giving me in ipconfig/all. Do not use those. For your primary DNS number use the number for your default which should be a right below your subnet mask number. For the secondary DNS number just leave it blank. 0.0.0.0
Then you have to upgrade to version 1.50 (which just came out yesterday actually). Get a memory stick with at least 100mb space on it. Make a new folder that is names PS3. Inside that folder make another new one that is called UPDATE. Both must be in capitol letters. Then go to PlayStation.com - PLAYSTATION®3 - Network - updates and click on "download now"... Then click save and save it to your memory stick in the UPDATE file, which should be in your PS3 file.
Then after all is done... plug that into your ps3 in one of the USB ports for the controllers. In the main screen go to SETTINGS and then go to SYSTEM UPDATE. Go to UPDATE VIA STORAGE MEDIA. PS3 will search for your media stick and it should say on the screen The latest update data was found... Version 1.50. Click OK and follow the rest of the instructions. After it is completely done... go back to the internet connection setup and go through all the menus to make sure all your numbers are the same as I stated above. Then at the end run the connection test. It should work!

If you are using a public router (meaning you're using just a connection from somebody else's router) prolly, you're DNS have been blocked...have you tried connecting to other sources other than the one you can't use? If you have a connection and you don't own your own wireless router, try borrowing one from someone you know first then try if it works...then that's the time you should ask for your own wireless router...

for mine i tried other fixes and they didn't work. Turns our my router had enabled security but the PS3 had forgotten the password (WEP key).
I turned off the WEP on my router and the PS3 suddenly found its connection.
To say I was getting stressed is an understatement, Sony should put something on their website, it seems like a really commonm problem to which people have no clear route to solution.

ok SET SYSTEM CLOCK back 3 years. i know it sounds stupid, but it resolved my issue. ( FYI, you must be signed out of xbox live to set system clock.)
