    I use a Netgear from Wal Mart, and then a wireless bridge for my dad's blu ray player which is way too far from the router to run cable

    Assuming you have a 802.11n laptop, get an 802.11n capable router. Also you're going to not want to use the wireless on the PS3 because that only is802.11g. So to get the best network performance, hardwire the PS3 to the router.

    Update; So I was randomly searching for a signal and I'm able to use someone's signal from a Belkin router for my PS3 and Laptop. Is there any risk indoing this? Is my personal information accessible or anything?
