Yeah I had this problem but she's fixed. No need to upgrade the firmware me thinks.
1) Type in "192.168.1.1" into the address bar of your browser. The log in page for your browser appears.
2) Enter your password - by default this is "1234", but you might have changed it. If you have changed it before log in with that new one.
A page should load with a lots of boring information. On the left side there should be a panel of stuff, what you want is "advanced settings". If advanced settings IS there on the left go to step "a" below. If advanced settings (or in fact anything) IS NOT down the left proceed to step "b" below.
a) Happy days. All you have to do is click the "+" beside advanced settings to expand it, then select UPnP. Then just click ALL of the boxes (there's 3 of them I think). That's it.
b) You are logged into some sort of stupid mode where you can't change anything. All you can do is refresh the page or log out. This is probably because you entered "1234" as the password, but in fact this password has previously been changed by you or someone else. So go back to the log in screen (192.168.1.1 in the address bar) and put in the one you changed it to, if you can remember it. If you do remember it and log in successfully (successfully being that you can see "advanced settings" on the left), go back to step "a" above. If you still can't get to that page it means you don't know your password. So you're going to have to reset your router. Go to step "c".
c) Resetting your router. Turn the router off. Then hold the reset button for 30 seconds and power on the router at the same time. Now I think you'll have to set up your router again like when you got if first, to connect to the internet, so do it. Then log in to 192.168.1.1 again. This time the password "1234" should bring you to the proper screen with advanced settings. If it does go to step "a". If it doesn't go to step "d".
d) You'll have to default reset your router. Turn it off. Turn it on and hold reset for 15 seconds. Some light will flash. Release button and let it reboot. Now log in to 192.168.1.1 again. If it works and you can select "advanced settings" go to step"a". If you STILL can't see advanced settings you're at the end of the line and I don't know what to do. Contact your provider or something.
If you haven't done this already...on your ps3:
Open up network >> internet connection. Choose wireless/wired - whichever you want. Choose "Address settings" - "custom", "IP address" - choose manual.Enter these:
IP address - "192.168.1.50"
Subnet Mask - "255.255.255.0"
Default Router - "192.168.1.1"
Primary DNS and Secondary DNS same as default router.
Then enter than. Don't know what MTU is (it'll come up next). You're done.

You will have to reset the router to factory settings. There is a small hole in the back, depress the microswitch with a paper clip when the power is on. The default password is 1234. Some of these devices are general, while others are hardwired to work with certain providers. So if, say, this 660 is branded with embarq it is unlikely that you can set the parameters to work with other providers.
I should mention that if you care about security you should not use WEP - a cracker can break an internet connected WEP device in minutes with the right toolset. The protocol has many problems that simply can't be fixed, period. Consider using WPA2 with WPA backcompatability, as allowed by the 660.
