iwconfig -v

here is how i did mine

go to settings .. network

this opens gnomes network config

you will see that eth0 wireless is set active

click wireless tab
put in ssid

i manually setup ip address but you can use dhcp if u wish

open a terminal and su to root (if your not already) and type ifconfig
you should see your ip address

done from memory as ps3 isn't turn on right now

all the best
alie
