PS3 Wireless and Linksys

Got one of the Linksys Pre-N combined DSL router and wireless all in one jobbies.
Have no problems with it, laptops, 360 all hook up fine.
Trouble is...I go through the PS3 internet settings and enter all the details and the WPA-PSK key and when it goes to test it just sits there and eventually fails with a "key exchange time out" error.
Anyone else seen this?

I had a similar problem with my Linksys router a few days back when I was trying to get a laptop to connect to it wirelessly. The router was setup to use WPA but the laptop thought it was WEP?!

A firmware upgrade on the router cured the problem - might be worth checking the firmware revision on your router?

Did it and a couple of resets later all is well.

Now to wait for my broadband to kick in on Monday
