is it wireless or ethernet you are using either way delete the connection then make a new one and just go to auto all the way then put your password in it is really easy but just in-case here is the link http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectwireless.html i hope this has helped but following my instructions will solve your problem and it is ip i take it you have mistyped what has happened is Ur pc or something has obtained the ip your ps3 was using and ur ps3 cant have it no more make sure set your ip to manual then you wont have this problem again
Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.
The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.
Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.
You do not need a DMZ for ps3. jsut setup a SSID if wireless. Encrypt it (for your own saftly) and PS3 has wireless capablity. Just join the network with the SSID and WEP key and the PS3 will get an IP address. Also no port mapping is needed. Leave all port to auto open due to DHCP is going to get your PS3 a new ip every time you turn it on.
Assuming the media test works (So the cable/wireless connections are
OK) then it's possible that you're out of available IP addresses in the
router. It shouldn't be a problem (Most router configs allow for over
250 IP addresses), but it might only have limited leases.
Try switching everything off (Except for the router), restart the
router and then try the PS3. That should rule out a problem with DHCP
well, if you know how to setup the ip addresses manually both on your modem / router and on the ps3 i recommend you do that... but bear in mind that your dhcp server (on your modem / router) should prohibit automatic assignment of that same ip address with your ps3... for that you have to specify a range of automatically assignable ip addresses apart from your ps3...
if you have the dmz (demilitarized zone) option on your modem / router, set it up for the ip address of your ps3, which you've setup manually...
router ip: 192.168.2.1
ps3 ip: 192.168.2.10
ip address pool: 192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.250 (this shpould be manually setup not to interfere with the fixed ip address of the ps3)
dmz host: 192.168.2.10 (ip address of the ps3, which enables "opens" all of the ports for this ip address)
apart from that if you use any proxy servers to connect to the net, you have to specify these in ps3 settings as well...
there are a lot of threads on various forums on how to tweak your network connection to optimize for ps3...
Turn off the PS3, unplug the power to the cable modem, let them sit 5 mins.
Plug in the power to the cable modem ONLY, wait for all lights to be on steady except for the activity light
Then turn on the PS3 and check the network IP addy.
