Any more information? What Distro? Do you have DHCP enabled on your Belkin 54g? If not do you have static networking info such as the IP address, netmask, Default Gateway, Network Address and broadcast. You'll need to enter this ip addressing info onto the PS3 or have it obtained dynamically via DHCP.

Are you connecting to your router wirelessly or via wired Ethernet? If you run ifconfig -a what is the output?
