First check wether you received a valid ip address for your local network. usually, this should be something like 192.168.x.y. if so, then you might indeed face a dns issue. dns is used to resolve web site names to ip address. usually, your ip service provider will broadcast the external dns servers for your router to recognize.
try to connect with a computer first. if it works, check the ip settings. if your computer also cannot connect without explicit dns server settings you can do one of the following: - explicit dns server address in ps3. go to "advanced internet connection settings", and then to "dns settings" and set the dns server address - purchase a 30$ network router and hook it between your internet and the ps3. in the router settings, set the dns server address to be broadcasted to the clients. you can use 22.214.171.124 and 2 which are dns servers in korea (i live in korea), but you might want to find the server near to your location or promoted by your isp

This sounds like you might need to open a port on your router or firewall to allow the PS3 to send info to the games specific server just because the PS3 has been given an IP address the PS3 still needs to connect through your router using NAT.
I suggest first turning off your Windows Firewall and your ISP firewall then into your router admin panel and open up the correct port then do the same on your firewalls.
Next, you need to enter these numbers for the PS3 to work.. so
put these in the port start and end. 80 , 443 , 5223 , 10070 (start) and
10080 (end) , 3478 , 3479 , 3658 , 10070. They should be in both start
and end except for the fourth which will have 10070 in start and 10080
The first 4 are TCP and the last 4 are UDP both types are required.
