PS3 Internet Connection Problem

My ps3 was connected wirelessly but i upgraded the hard drive and also got a new router from Orange, now the ps3 won't connect via wireless. I don't have an ethernet cable so this is a problem. A wireless option is not even displayed when the easy option is selected. A message appears saying connect ethernet cable. I have restores settings. Please help?

Go out and buy an ethernet

Go out and buy an ethernet cable for like 5 bucks and test the wired connection. If that doesn't work, then it's a hardware problem.

most likely a router issue

most likely a router issue more to the point the built in firewall try dissabling it if it connects call the router tech line and find out how to open the appropriate ports

did you back up your files

did you back up your files from your ps3? you gotta back up your files from your ps3 when you swap to a bigger hard drive. the driver you need to run the wireless connectivity is probably on your old hard drive. Just transfer it to your new hard drive and you should be set.
