is it a wirless router?

Ethernet is a cable you will need wifi to connect to your router downstairs.

To set up wifi-:

Goto settings

Goto network settings

Goto network connection, select enable

Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-

Push yes when it says you may be disconnected

Select wired or wireless

For wireless use scan or enter manually

Follow on screen instructions.

Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right

You may have to reset your router so that it will recognize your ps3 . (if no reset then unplugg router and power it back on.)

(nicked from yahoo)

if it is you need to find the tab onthe ps3 that says connect to internet and search for connections locate your wireless router and select then enter the wpa code should be on the bottom of your router and then set up a ps3 account with name etc opnce you start the ps3 will guide you through
