|If you could count yourself lucky, then you'd just turn on the PS3/TV, and on the PS3 XMB select over to almost the far left side, choosing "Network Settings." Where luck can factor in...try selecting all the "Auto-Set" (or however its worded for the PS3) actions for each Network Settings screen you're presented with as you proceed right through the Network Settings screens. And if luck holds, by the time you complete that effort, and press for a Test Connection, you'll find success with IP Address and Internet Connection tests.
...However, if not successful in the auto-set feature, then you're gonna have to 'plug' some numbers using the Manual Set feature.
I've learned the following only because I recently encountered the same trouble you are describing...after switching from Verizon's EVDO card to Sprint's. Trouble or no, as a result of that mess, I must say I came out of the experience a better, and more network-savvy fellow. Basically, you need to do the following:
1. Open a web browser and log into your KR1 (enter into the browser's address bar the default IP addy found in your KR1's documentation).
2. Once accessed, select "STATUS" from the list available across the top menu-area of the KR1 software.
3. Now you should be presented with a page of information. LAN Settings, WLAN Settings, Wireless Settings, etc. Keep this page/information displayed on your monitor because you'll need this information to "plug" into a specific PS3 Network Settings page/prompt.
4. So if not already done so, get your PS3/TV to the Network Settings feature from the XMB. You can Auto-Set all the progress-to-right screens during this effort EXCEPT for the Internet Connection screen. You will need to plug values available from the KR1's STATUS screen into the PS3's Internet Connection screen. Values such as IP Address, Primary & Secondary DNS, etc. I'm afraid I cannot offer you the exact info as yours will differ from my setup & KR1's DHCP IP assignments for your networked equipment, etc. Plus, I have a wired (thus I was using some info from KR1's WLAN STATUS area) 20GB PS3, whereas you may have a 60GB PS3, running wireless (and therefore you'd be using some of the KR1's Wireless STATUS area info to plug your PS3's settings).
The terms between the KR1 and the PS3 are not *exact* one-to-one terms, so you may need to try a few "plugs-and-tests" to get a successful test at the end of the effort. Honestly, this trial and error effort took me a little while. But once it was done, the test succeeded and I was online just fine.
Where I've "started" you here...you may find success. If you don't, please report back. Although I'm no guru, I've probably added some much-needed information here and others [with more experience than myself] might be able to provide even more specifics to set you on your way.
