Sounds like your PS3 is not finding your router or if you have a direct connection to your ps3 from the modem, that the NIC inside of the PS3 isn't finding the connection.

Here is an article that explains how to run the network setup for the PS3:

If you know your other hardware is working and you still can't connect, you could have an issue with the NIC in your ps3.

If it's a Capcom game or an online based one it won't work because Playstation Network is down at the moment so there's no online play at all which can cause an error to come up. Hope this helps.
