@davey23, I was not going to correct you but your example private IP address is bugging me. Addresses starting with 169 (and followed by 254) are not private. Its an APIPA, an automatically assigned IP address when no DHCP is found. Also, the 169.254.0.1 - 169.254.0.254 (APIPA) range is reserved for Microsoft; thus meaning the PS3 will not get an address in this range, even if it cannot find a DHCP.
I think are more accurate example of private IP addresses are 192.168, 10.10 or 172.16.

I'm not sure if this problem has been solved or not but I'll post what I would do to resolve it.
Firstly find out the follwoing information about your network.(If your are using Windows® open Command Prompt and type IPConfig /all.) I suggest your write this information down.
Also since you are connecting wirelessly ensure you have your SSID and passphrase.
Next look at the DHCP Servers IP Address/s and Default Gateways IP Address. They generally should be the same.
Now go to your PS3 Internet Connection Settings and select custom and then follow the prompts as you normally would until you get to the IP Addressing Settings. Here you select manual.
et up your PS3's network settings using the custom option rather than the easy option. When you get to the "IP Address Settings" select manual. Then on the next screen enter the approprate addresses.
IP Address: The address of the PS3. You can make this address up, however, it MUST be in the same subnet as your network.
Example: If your routers IP Address is 192.168.1.1 and your Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0 then give your PS3 an IP address like this 192.168.1.20.
Subnet Mask: Same as the one you wrote down earlier.
Default Router: Your routers IP address (Default Gateway).
Primary DNS: Your routers IP address should be fine here.
Secondary DNS: Leave the default 0.0.0.0
On the next screen leave MTU as automatic and on the next screen select Do Not Use for Proxy Server (unless you use one which is unlikley)
Once you finnish the set up try signing in again.
Let us know how you go.
