Do the following:

3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"

Hold the reset pin on the back of the router for 30 seconds to reset the router configuration.
You might have to try a few times.
See if your computer connects to the default LINKSYS ssid.
If you are able to connect, then it was a configuration issue. Or some corruption of the router's firmware.
Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, and go to http://192.168.1.1 username: (nothing) password: admin
Download the latest firmware for the router, and configure it for better security. Do the configuration step by step, to see which actual part of the securing stops communications.
A good security measure would be the following, test wireless connection after each change (you would need to configure your computer wireless settings accordingly. You have to be connected by a wire while doing the changes or you might lock yourself out):
1. change the router password
2. Turn off SSID broadcasting
3. Change the ssid from LINKSYS to something only you would know, like BwRiAfNiDY (it is not case sensitive). Write down the name as you will need it to configure the laptop wireless.
4. Setup personal WPA TKIP / AES encryption
If you are far away from the router when using it wirelessly, and it starts losing connectivity, drop it's speed to a lower setting.
