Our PS3 won't run fast enough on the wireless router (characters are jumpy), so I ran a hard line from router to PS3 (through the attic and down the walls) and hooked up that way to get full speed, but it won't work at all online with this hard line. Wireless it woks, but too slow. There seems to be an IP address problem - hard wired PS3 can't find one from the router.

What you are trying to do is a rather big job. Hire a company to connect the equipment properly. The headaches you save will be your own. If you install it, you will have to fix it everytime it goes out if you contract someone to install it and you buy a support contract when they install it, THEY get to come fix it and the headache is theirs, not yours. And NEVER install that type of router in an attic, they will overheat and fail very quickly.
any type of wirless router or router that has an input for the modem wire. (ethernet) Then one from router to comp (unless running wireless) then one from router to ps3, (unless running wireless) If running wireless, then you would just need a wireless router. Type G or N. There fairly cheap on ebay and amazon.com and newegg.com
If it only does it running on battery power, try adjusting your power saver option. You may also want to run a program like Malwarebytes (free) to make sure it isn't some spyware causing the problem. http://www.malwarebytes.org/
sometimes the internet provider you use isnt good enough or fast enough to host game. i take it thats its on call of duty. youll need a better and faster internet. e.g more meg. befor you do check your signal is near 100%.
Your wireless router should reach a max of 300 feet. Obviously, there is minimum distance as you are finding out.
You may want to try another wireless router in place of the one you are using.
You can put another device in the attic, but who is to say you will have any better success.
Things for you to consider: Wireless runs at 10, wire runs at 100 or 1000. Wire is secure, not subject to hacking.
If you put a wireless router in the attic, you will still have to run a wire from that device to your www connection.
I hope I have helped you with your problem. Post concerns or comments to this question if required
if its asking for a WEP key then your wireless network is a secured one..you will need to put the same key as you had originally used while setting your wireless network..are you able to connect to the wireless from a laptop?
see the message that comes on your ps3 when you scan for available networks..you will know if your wireless has security..
you can chnage the security of your wireless by logging oto it by typing 192.168.1.1 in the laptop browser and then configure/change security settings..hope it helps..
