Yeah i was going to try that for you but i need to wait for the adverts the missus is watching shanghai noon , i suspect this is the cause of your problems and i fully expect mine to fail on wep , i'll post back in a mo or two.

Thanks so much, If this is the issue i will definitley change it tomorrow. Would the UPnP cause the problem in the 1st place though? Also, im on a BT HomeHub 2. Not the original.

Funnily enough i had the exact same problem with mine when the PSN came back.
However i went into my modem settings and some pages weren't being displayed i was getting 404 error or something along them lines.
Anyway i did a hard reset on the modem because just resetting it did nothing, so restoring the factory defaults made it work, i also had a better internet speed after that.
I also fiddled with my ps3 IP adress settings, it could also be, if you manually set your duplex (half or full 100-1000 thing) Best to have that on automatic, that probably didn't help me when i had mine on 100-full-duplex because to be honest i have no idea what it should be, so automatic for that is best lol.
All of this you probably have read already somewhere so it might no be much help but, it more than likely is the modem if you havent reset it back to factory defaults.
If that fails, it's the PS3 Internet settings.
And finally if both of them are not the problem then it's your ISP but very very doubtfull lol.
EDIT: I just noticed your on the BT homehub 2 (exactly the same as me)
So it is definatly the Homehub mate.
To reset to factory settings:

Complete failure with wep , this is because my router's only using wpa , so i'd suggest it's your level of security.
I think upnp being unavailable is your problem in general , as far as i can tell the upnp feature is designed to enable you to pick up any game and play it without issues.
Any time i had problems was when upnp was either unavailable in the ps3 menu or on my homehub.

Done a quick google search and it would seem the wep is the more outdated version , wpa then wpa2 aes then followed.
I'm no expert but i'd say the levels of encryption and security are much better , have a quick look yourself i just typed in , differences between wep and wpa2.
The wep and wpa are for wireless devices only , anything wired should be fine , any issues with other wireless devices would be rectified in the system settings of those devices , basically redo your settings if it comes to it.

Have you tried re-entering the wpa2 key for your set up , thats the key you need for wireless connections , wep = wired equivallent privacy so that would lend towards a wired setup i think.
Try taking it out of dmz , disable any port forwarding you've done then straight into easy setup , select scan at wlan settings and it'll list your ssid and show your security type , hopefully it'll read wpa2 if not continue onwards anyhow and it'll list security settings , select wpa2 then input the key from the back of the hub , the key on the hub is the one you're after , if it fails the ip test try again a couple of times.
If that don't work try assigning a static ip , then redo the setup. I'm hoping that the security your selecting for your ps3 will work , if not then it can only be a hub related issue.
