Have you entered the following?

1) Your SSID (typically the SN of the modem/router) 2) WEP 'enabled' and the WEP key

    Do you go online using this router with a laptop or desk top? If so you could check all the internet configurations on the PC and compare them with the ones on the PS3. If there are any obvious differances you can manually input them into the PS3 (Mainly the IP address).

    Also try this on PS3: go into network settings - media server connection..u need this DISABLED as it is ENABLED by default.

    Hopefully one of these will work. I'm with Sky broadband which supplied me with a router. Works fine, though i did have to do a bit of fiddling first

Belkin G+ MIMO router kicks my 360 (wired directly to router) and my laptop (of course, wireless) off of the network at random times, its incredibly bothersome and i'd like it solved

that happens alot when one or more device (for instance, the xbox 360 and a cpu) are trying to use the same ip address make sure you have the xbox 360 and all other devices (cpu's/printers) that are connected to the router set to aquire ip address automatically

.trouble with playstation 3 getting on line through router...

It looks like there are a lot of DNS servers that do not work correctly with the PS3. Below I will list a few DNS servers that do seem to work and you will need to manually configure the DNS settings for your PS3 to any of these addresses.
