Why is the PS3 such a pain to get online?

I'm connecting via DSL modem and ethernet cable hooked directly to the PS3, but more times than not it just will not work period. Has anyone else been experiencing this or am I all alone? Anyway, it gives me some solutions like unpluging the modem and waiting a while yet that rarely if ever works.

I'm starting to believe the problem is the PS3 itself because this method works fine on Xbox 360 everytime.

I think the PS3 ethernet port on the back my PS3 must be have blown a fuse or something because that's all I can think of since the modem is working fine, the ethernet cable is fine, so it has to be the PS3 itself, right?

I have a 5 year old fat PS3 by the way.

TC, it's just you.
Very very rarely are there people having the same complaint as yours. I had a phat and now using a slim. I upgraded my cable modem and inter service. There had never been any network related issue.
Get a knowledgeable friend to look at your setup.
