  • Using the router should work. If you can get into its settings set up a specific IP address for the PlayStation 3 (you'll find the how-to's among several threads I've answered in the PS3 Hardware / Accessory help section) and edit that into the connection setting you have set up on the PS3. You may also have to add in additional numbers such as the DNS servers, subnet mask and router IP.
