I don't know if the BT hub has MAC filtering, if it does you will need to add the MAC address from the PS3 information settings to the router.

To find the MAC address on the PS3, go to.

 


1. Select Settings.

2. Select System Settings.

3. Select System Information.

This screen will display your PS3 MAC address.

 

This will need to be entered into the relevant section on the router setup page.
