cannot configure wifi on YDL 5.0.1


I just downloaded YDL 5.0.1 on my 60GB PS3 but I can't seem to get my wireless connection working. I am able to set up a wireless connection and I am able to activate it but it does not seem to work when I use mozilla. Can someone help me step by step or give me a link on how to configure the wifi??

What do iwconfig and ifconfig -a say? Can you access sites by IP address (e.g. 64.233.169.104 instead of www.google.com)? Can you ping other computers on your network?

See "man ping" about pinging (basically it's a simple way to test a connection to a remote host), but if the wifi on the PS3 doesn't work as St. Jimmy suggest then it may be a lost cause for the moment.

I can get my wireless connection to be active but I still can't seem to use mozilla. Is there a way to check if my connection is working on YDL?
