my PS3 has recently lost wireless connection to my network, whenever i try to reconnect i get the following error messages. failed to get ip address, or attempt to obtain ip address timed out. i thought i would try to renew ip addresses but when i try to release ip address , via command line (ipconfig/iprelease) i get the following message. this opeerattion cannot be performed on local area area connection while it has media disconnected. Help please.

I know nothing about PS3s but presumably, like PCs, a wireless "profile" is saved after the initial connection so that it can connect automatically in future. That being the case, try deleting the existing "profile" and then go through the procedure to Connect again when a new profile will be saved.
