Default Need wireless help

Recently i tried to hook my Linksys WRT54G wireless router up and my PC connects but no internet, also i noticed it wouldn't acquire network or something. So i am wondering can i turn my WRT54g Wireless router into a wired router so i can then play my PS3 online as well as being on my PC? when i did have my router working my ps3 would always lose connection so it would be so much easier this way too.

Try this, find out what type of mac adress number the ps3 using and add it to the wireless router configuration.
Usually when you connect any wireless device to a router 80% of the time your router see's the device but can't assign a ip address and a network ID.
Happens to me all the time when ever I add a new wireless adapter to my pc and my netgear router refuses it's connection without a mac address.

Last look around or under your ps3 for the mac address lable or go into the bios settings screen on your ps3 to get it.

i have pppoe DSL with a modem, but the problem isn't the ps3 it says can't acquire the address on the PC. Yes i went through the steps for my router, but is it possible just to set it up as a wired router? i tried it before but no internet would come through

Just disable wireless broadcast in the router's settings if you don't want wireless at all. Otherwise you should just be able to plug both PS3/PC into the back of the router's ports.
