I also forgot to mention that when I used an Ethernet cable (wired Connection) and set EVERYTHING to automatic, it came up with another error message.
"Could not connect due to a network error. (80028EA8)"
Can anyone tell me what thiserror code stands for and/or advise me on how to fix it?

Help & New to Forums.
I will shortly be taking delivery of a Netgear DG834 (or similar) from AOL as part of their standard kit for uprated Broadband services. I am returning the other router they gave me (Thomson) which is wired into my desktop XP computer, as the poor WLAN performance means I can't use my PS3 wirelessly. I'm hoping the Netgear WLAN will be better, but my main question(s) is to do with knowing what's required to give me a wired PS3 connection.
As the PS3 has an Ethernet cable I know I need to connect it to a modem, and then from the modem into the DSL socket on my telephone filter.
I tried using my spare D-Link Router/Modem (which has wireless capability) to connect in this way but, alas, my PS3 couldn't find the Internet connection and I ended up having to reset/reconfigure everything on my desktop PC/Thomson router when I lost the DSL and Internet lights on the router.
What I want to know is;
Can I use any modem/router (wireless or otherwise) for a wired PS3 connection (in conjunction with the soon to be Netgear router/modem that'll be connected to my desktop)?
If 'yes', how do I configure my PS3 so that it can share the Internet/network connection? (Bear in mind that I've already tried 'easy' and 'custom' options many times and have set up SSID's which I can see on-screen when attempting a wireless connection. I can also see the SSID when trying for a wired connection, but the PS3 gets as far as obtaining the IP address successfully and then fails on finding the DNS server, both automatically and manually)
If 'no', what do I need and how do I configure the recommended hardware connected to the PS3? And again, what PS3 configuration is required to enable this?
Many thanks, Mylander
P.S. I am only changing from my wireless D-link router which worked perfectly with my PS3, because AOL said they 'didn't support it' for uprated AOL Broadband !
