Is your routers firmware up to date, also what results do you get from an internet connection test, are they all normal?

You can buy a new wireless router if you like. The PS3 doesn't use wireless N, so it will only connect using wireless G, unless you buy a wireless bridge to convert the wired port on the PS3 into a separate wireless N radio.

However, you can probably fine tune your current router and try to get that working. Restart the router first and see if that lets you connect. To update firmware and change settings, you need to find out how to log into the settings webpage for your router. The instructions will be in the manual that comes with it. If you've lost the manual, then you can probably find one for download from the manufacturer's website. Have the model number handy when searching.

Change the wireless channel to 1, 6 or 11 once you get into the router settings. Choose the one that lets you connect most consistently.

The router settings webpage will also have an option for uploading a firmware update file to the router.

No, USB wireless sticks won't work, because the PS3 doesn't work like a personal computer and doesn't have the right software to use them.

The access point connects to your PS3's wired gigabit ethernet port.

You could get a wireless N 600 Mbps router, but it probably won't improve your internet connection or let you game better.
