I'm not sure I understand the question. Wireless is wireless (well, more accurately, 802.11 a/b/g/n is 802.11 a/b/g/n). So the Airport Extreme -- like every other 802.11x compatible router ... should work with your PS3.

If perhaps what you meant to ask is "how do I stream media FROM my Mac TO my PS3 over a wireless network," then you should probably look at Playback.

I have the Airport Extreme Base Station (AEBS).

First off, the cable from Comcast comes from the wall, then to my Comcast modem, and then the ethernet cable to my AEBS.

Off of my AEBS i have my iMac connected wirelessly, my xBox wired directly, my LG HDTV wired directly, and we use our iPhones (x2) with varying frequency.

I do not own a PS3, btu there is no reason that your PS3 wouldn't work with your 'airport extreme wireless router' Im assuming thats the same device i have.

Every PS3 has an internal WiFi adapter, I however connect my xBox for the best speeds. The same reason with the HDTV. Those are the streaming devices for videos, shows, and gaming. The iMac has the least internet (data) workload so I leave that to WiFi.
for future reference, it helps when you have detailed info on your setup
hope that helps.

Like the others stated, it should work just fine. If I might add, I think the Airport Extreme Router is an excellent router. Since I bought mine and installed it my system has worked flawlessly. I don't have as many other gadgets on it as others might, 1 MacBook Pro, 1 Lenovo Windows notebook, and 2 IPhones, but it works real well. Installation was a snap, very easy and not complex, and I get excellent reception throughout my home. It's a larger try-level home that other routers had trouble getting signal to.

I think you would be happy with your selection.
