I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54G2 and my PS3 refuses to connect to it. When I scan for networks, it sees the router, but every step I have taken to assist it in connecting has failed. I have changed the port range forward settings in my router settings, tried removing the power cord from the modem, and followed all of the steps that the Playstation technical support team gave me, with no success. I was wondering what I could do to fix this problem.
I was also wondering if a network bridge would work in the same capacity as a normal ethernet cord.
Is it just that my specific model of router has issues with all PS3s?
Thanks in advance. I would truly appreciate advice on this subject, as my PSN has been out of commission for about a year due to this problem.
have you tried an ethernet cable to make sure its not your PS3? do your other wireless devices work? Sorry I know they are kind of obvious but sometimes the simplest things slip your mind when you get frustrated

You shouldn't need to set the ports with that router as it has UPnP ( universal plug n play ) settings, I suggest restartig the router to it's factory settings, enable UPnP, then go from there.
Also make sure to check the simple variables such as ISP speed, signal strength, other connected devices eating bandwidth ( in my case Wii connect24 would make my PS3/360 lag online, but once disabled they work %100 )
I reset the router to factor defaults and it seems to have made some progress. Now, instead of failing to Obtain the IP address, it succeeded in that and finding the internet connection The PSN failed though.
