1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.

I found a fix for me. We have AT&T Uverse. On the sheet with our info, it lists our WEP. Turns out the tech had actually set it up for WPA.
So when setting up my network on the PS3, I merely needed to choose WPA instead of WEP.
I then went and undid all the MAC work I did on our home router.
Hope this helps someone.
- Reset your router to factory defaults.
- Go to Select Network Settings under Settings in the home menu.
- Select Easy then Wireless.
- Then select Enter Manually. Then enter in your SSID of your router. Then rest of the setting should be set to Automatic.
- However DO NOT TEST CONNECTION. Just save and turn off the playstation3.
- Then turn off Playstation 3 from the back of the drive.
- Unplug the power cord and wait 30 seconds.
- Plug the power cord in and turn on the Playstation 3 switch.
- Wait 5 seconds and turn on the Playstation 3 and it will work. You can even test your connection and it will work.
