Re: PS3 Loosing connection through Sky router
This may be a problem with your Router. try checking the wires. Make sure it's not covered in dust. If it is clean it out. Make sure it is in an open space and properly ventilated. Same thing with your console, if not properly ventilated if could potentially cause this problem.

do you run it wirelessly or with an ethnet cable? also have you tried enetering the settings manually from the wireless setup menu? entering the network key in capital letters etc? sky broadband seems to be very fickle. as i have no end of problems with it disconnecting and running very slowly.
Are you using any kind of "peer to peer" file sharing program, like gnutella, frostwire or limewire? The reason I ask is a friend of mine who works at Comcast Cable in Denver, CO, said that once broadband admin finds someone hoging bandwidth in a given area, they'll limit your "mbps" to discourage you from using peer to peer file sharing.
This may or may not be the case in your situation.
On my set up. I'm running a wired Cisco router with both a PC & PS3 on it. The PC will expierence an occasional slowdown, but not enough to re-configure my set up. I hope this was of SOME help. If I can be of any other help, please message me here. Good Luck, bro.
If you are using windows, open Command Prompt. Type "ipconfig /all" without the quotations. This will display your IP and DNS address.
If your router is connecting to the internet successfully, you don't need to change DNS settings. For the PS3 you just need to know the SSID of your router and the WEP or WPA password if your network is secured.
im guessing you have done this already, but reset your router and modem and switch off your ps3 then boot everything up again and see if that works. if not then try connecting your ps3 directly to your modem (again switch it all off unplug ethernet cables wire it to ps3 and switch it all on again) try it a couple of times, if this works then you have a problem with you router and probably need to do port forwarding or contact sky
