Default PS3 internet connection help

I have a 20 GB PS3 trying to get online. I went into internet connection I picked easy but, it always says need wired ethernet at the end. I thought these don't need adapter. I have a Netgear wireless router WGR 614 V8. Any suggestions

The system has Bluetooth 2.0 (with support for up to 7 bluetooth devices[53]), gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 and HDMI 1.4[cn 1] built in on all currently shipping models. Wi-Fi networking is also built-in on all but the 20 GB models, while a flash card reader (compatible with Memory Stick, SD/MMC and CompactFlash/Microdrive media) is built-in on 60 GB and CECHExx 80 GB models.[43][52

I'm using a Cisco Linksys WET610N. Works great for both online gaming and media streaming. Around $65-$100. Been up and running on this one for 3 years without issue.

Not always an option. There is no path from my office upstairs to my living room downstairs to run the cable (35 year old house). Bridge works just fine.
