I know it is possible, you just have to rebroadcast that signal then get your PS3 to connect to your wireless. I think its called a wireless mesh network

But make sure you have permission from your neighbour first to use his wireless

What you want is called a wireless range extender. Here's an example: Hawking HWREN1. I have no experience using one so I can't say how well they work.

looking at the range extender and how it works, that looks like that would work quite well. i dont have any experience using these but the description says it it all basically.
