I have a WRT54GS router and I don't have this problem.
Even after changing the router's firmware from the official one to TOMATO.

Thankfully, you guys figured it out, and I saw that I needed to disable the "Media Server" thing.
Too bad we won't even be able to use a media server though.

The only problem is, when i go onto my turn on my ps3, it says "a connection error has occured"... and when i try to change the network settings, i don't know what information i should put in.... PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!
1. Do you want to use Media Sharing? If so, then follow the instructions given in the link given earlier here.
2. If you do not care about media sharing, turn the setting OFF in the Settings > Network Settings part of the menus.
If it still happens, then I don't know... But I had very similar issues which were resolved when I turned Media Sharing off.
I was having this same type issue using the WTR54G router by Linksys. I seemed to get a connection error everytime my PS3 wanted to do a upgrade or patch of any game I tried to play that had any patches available. I also went into my router and tried some different things. I tried to turn off my firewall in the router to see if this helped. It did not. I tried assigning static IP address to my PS3. This did not work. I tried assigning specific ports for the PS3. This did not work. All this didn't make any difference rather I was using wireless or hardwired. Not really having any ideas of what to try next, the only thing I could think of was flashing my routers firmware as I did see there was some upgrades to the firmware. After I did this my problem was fixed. I then wondered what was different and why this fixed my problem so I started searching and found this forum post here. I'm thinking that media sharing was probably my issue from what everyone is saying and probably upgrading my firmware set my router back to defaults and corrected this. I can't ever remember turning on media sharing in my router but maybe it was turned on at some point in time.
