I know THE SOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM (when you use LINKSYS WRT54G) don't know of this works out for other too but give it a try !!

I've spend hours on this looking.. but I'll spare you my life story..

The first thing you do is look up the MAC-adress of your ps3 which can be found in your network configurations pannel.
once you found this you note this somewhere on a sheet of paper.
Next you go to your linksys router (on your pc)
You can acces this by typing in your browser.
when you are there search were you can fill in a MAC-adress and replace the one you've got by the one of your ps3 (on sheet of paper)

OK so far so good. Then you will have a NAT-type 2 instead of 3 (which means that you don't have to fill in your configurations like DNS and Ip-adress manually) So this you don't get a DNS error.

Then go to network configurations on your ps3 and use simple or advanced (I don't think this makes a difference =) )
But I took simple. Next set everything on automatic. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT THAT YOU USE THE RIGHT WEP-key (which can also be found in your router configurations)
=> ( in browser and settings) or ask me if you don't find this

And don't use proxy server or UpNp (the last one makes no difference with me)

If problem still persists, let me know!!

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and h!!ave a nice day!!

    I found an interesting article :-

    Been troubled lately by that pesky DNS error? Notice that your PS3
    can still browse the net, but not log in? Happen to be a Roadrunner
    customer? Happen to have any other ISP with a crummy DNS server? Well
    then read on...

    The main issue turns out to be a
    Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS problem. The fix is simple. When
    configuring your PS3 network (regardless of wired or wireless), use the
    manual option. If you use DHCP, leave address resolution at automatic

    I replaced the
    Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS entries with addresses from the
    Open DNS project which is a free, secure DNS server that anyone can
    use. It's safe, easy, and works.

    The DNS addresses are: or/and

    Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.

    you can also use these DNS servers for your entire network if you like
    by configuring your router. That however is up to you, and won't be
    discussed in this particular thread by me since I'm too lazy to make a
    writeup for every single router out there. However, I do guarantee
    that this fix will work (or at least get you online with your PS3) for
    the time being. If it doesn't work, then please re-read this thread
    and try again before wasting five minutes of your time telling me that
    it doesn't work.

    Also, for those that think that this is
    a PSN issue; consider this: With TW, I could still browse the net with
    the PS3. I could also use any of my home PC's without problem. The
    only time I ever encountered a fault was when trying to log into the
    PSN network using the TWC supplied DNS addresses. Once I replaced
    those, the problem went away.

    Think about it now. If it
    was a PSN issue, the OpenDNS addresses woudn't have worked for me or
    anyone else here either. But, since it did I think it's safe to say
    that the problem lies with your ISP. Don't forget that alot of ISP's
    including Time Warner depend on 3rd party DNS hosts. Just because you
    have TW (or Comcast, or Cablevision, et al), doesn't mean the DNS
    servers are owned and operated by them as well. Perhaps the DNS
    provider changed something in their routing tables preventing a
    connection with PSN. There are ALOT of variables at play here...

    alone could be a reason why others have similar issues with different
    ISP's. Maybe their ISP uses the same DNS host that Time Warner uses. All you're doing by replacing the DNS address is simply using a different DNS provider; nothing else.

    Hope this would clear up the thing.

You need to disable the UPnP function on the Belkin router. Log into the router(, and look under System Settings for the UPnP function and disable it. If you haven't changed the password on the router, the default password is blank, i.e., no password.
