Connect a computer to the router with an ethernet cable.
See the literature which came with your router for how to access the user setup screens in the router. Once in go to wireless security and review or renew the wireless security type and password. WPA PSK TKIP is the most common security type in use but maybe PS3 still uses WEP. Make a note of the SSID or change it to one of your invention.
Go to wireless mode and ensure that it's set to a protocol matching your computer's wireless adapter and the PS3 (mixed mode is a safe bet).
Disconnect ethernet cable.
Go to the computer's wireless networking setup screen and see if you can detect the router's SSID (wireless call sign). Do the same with the PS3. Select that network.
Apply the wireless security type and password to the computer's wireless networking setup screen and to the PS3.
