The gateway on the PS3 should be the IP of your router, you should be able to automatically detect the DNS settings (perhaps) so it does that automatically.

Most gateways always end in 1, but the previous poster is right, the Default Gateway for your PS3 should be 192.168.0.1 (assuming thats your Routers IP), subnet mask 255.255.255.0, and no DO NOT disable the routers firewall.

By putting the PS3 in the DMZ it is not subject to the Firewall Rules within the Router.

DMZ is Demilitarized Zone, basically your router adds a layer of protection and this often makes playing games etc not possible unless you either:
A) Forward the correct ports
B) Use DMZ

It is always recommended to forward the ports if you can but running in the DMZ will allow the computer set to be there to do anything, basically it will be put outside the layer of protection - thus being able to send and receive on any port it wants.
