      Make sure UPnP is enabled in the router and on the PS3, switch on your PS3 and then see if WMP detects it (it will show up as "unknown device"), you may need to check the box that says "allow new devices".

      UPnP is enabled and the ps3 says its available but it still doesnt work, its the best thing to use but it doesnt work

      does the PS3 only support WMP? or will it work with stuff like iTunes?

      Yes the PS3 has a web browser, some flash sites are a bit problematic though.

      If your PS3 can go to PlayStation store or use any website using the PS3 then the connection with the router is fine and only thing that might be hindering your streaming is either the UPNP being switched off or the WMP 11 not configured. If you had it running earlier with orange then you need to go into WMP settings, go to options and configure sharing. Whatever devices are showing in it just right click and remove it. Then say OK restart your WMP11 go back to setting and configure sharing, click on settings and you see a box saying allow new devices and computers, check that, then PS3 should show up in the list as unknown devices, select it and allow. Get out of the settings and it should show up in ps3. if on doing above it does not show then the firewall in your computer is blocking WMP11, you might need to open ports there in that case.
      Hope this helps
