ok all you need to do is to try using WEP as ur security and i bet you it will work i had the same problem using WPA and i think the problem is that sometimes its too high a security setting and the router then blocks the ps3 access.

I was having the same problem.  And it seems no one has an answer to this problem.  I know my passkey was correct.  So in the end, I just turned off the security to my router.  I now have a connection to the ps3 network.

 

I am not exactly happy about having no security for my router.  I hope someone has an easy answer to fix this problem.
