Linksys router problems

you are getting the message limited or no connectivity , that means your computer is not getting IP address from the router. First check the physical connections to the router . Make sure that your computer is connected to the router on port 1, 2, 3, 4 and NOT on Internet port.
If the connections are correct and you still get the same error then reset the router for 30 seconds. Unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and reconfigure the router.
First make sure that the computer is able to go on line directly through the modem.

IP Address "Failed"

restore your default settings. check your security key and you shoudl be good to go. it's nothing with your ps3 and probably just something with yoru router. also try restoring the default settings and just connecting directly to your router or your modem with an ethernet cable
