The DMZ (demilitarized zone) is set mainly by using the MAC address of the device and not the IP address. If you set the MAC address for your device in the settings for putting something in the DMZ then that should be all you need to do. The IP address won't matter because each device has a pre-set MAC address that never changes. Trust me, I do this stuff for extra money on the weekend.
dmz is pretty easy to set.
You need to give a specific IP to the PS3. and then in the DMZ settings you just type in the IP you gave to the PS3.
As for setting the IP ... look on your router for those settings. They are different for each brand. Basically, you'll need to know the MAC address of your PS3. You'll type that in along with the IP you want to give it, and then from then on, your PS3 will always have that IP address.
I think if you go into the PS3 settings somewhere you can get it to show you the MAC address.
The IP address you assign it will probably need to look something like 192.168.0.xxx
xxx being a number between 1 and 255 - anyone will due as long as nothing else is using it. If you have say 4 other devices that go online, you could just make it 192.168.0.10, since the other devices are more then likely using 1-4
