Check your WiFi hotspot settings:

First with so many active AP's around you your hotspot maybe set for the same channel(s).

Using your PC and a WiFi sniffer (google - stumbler for a free PC util) you should be able to isolate out a few channel or two.

The next thing is to make sure your hotspot is set for 802.11 g on one of the channels as I don't think the PS3 can access 802.11 n nets.

Next adjust your hotspot as needed and using your PC again make sure you can see your hotspot where your PS3 is located and has a strong signal. Now try accessing the hotspot with your PS3.

Like above, you will need to check your settings. If you still can't access the hotspot, you can make a second one cheaply using the Go Baby Mobile MiFi with any standard 3G Dongle
