You need to go into safe mode and Restore Default Settings.
Hold down power button in front of your computer keep holding it down untill you hear 2 quick beeps. Then let go of the power button. You should be in safe mode. How click down to RESTORE DEFAULT SETTING AND FOLLOW THE SIGN-UP PAGES. Use your account sign-in e-mail address and password. If you bought any games and downloaded from playstation store you can reload them from there they have a recorded of all downloads. You will have to redownload them.
NOTE: never turn the power button off from the back of the playstation when you are sign-in this will make it happen again always sign-out.

can you go to network settings in your ps3 then test internet connection. If it says UPNP unavailable then you need to enable it in your router or upgrade router firmware if router shows UPNP as enabled.
