PS3 conectinhg to Sky problem

For some reason my PS3 will not connect to the internet
I use Sky broadband and it has worked fine up to a short while ago when I attempted to update the PS3 it just wouldnt connect
When I use the (internet connection test) It gets to the point were it states "Connecting to access point - Obtaining IP Address" and then it states Obtain IP Address Failed
I have rentered all the relavent details and made sure the Key is in the correct case
As I said before it has worked fine up to the present and I have a PSP and I can still get access on that
I have even tried connecting the PS3 via an Ethernet cable but without success
Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Ive had similar problems in the past;

Enter the routers configuration pages and briefly disable the NAT firewall and try again....

Has your ps3 updated recently...ours has ? this could be a simple update causing the problem.

Shot in the dark though may just work for you.
