They plug into your home power sockets and send Ethernet through the power lines you plug one in next to the router and one next to the PS3 then connect everything up. they work best when plugged in through as little extensions as possible, main sockets are best and make sure they are rated 200mbps or above, the higher the better but they are more expensive, most people are fine with 200mbps ones as long as there not plugged in through 5 daisy chained extension leads obviously

I was going to refer the OP back to my previous post, which linked to the wikipedia article on homeplugs, but your answer is more concise. 🙂 Thanks for that and have a shiny star on me. 😄

I get the same problem on Battlefield 3, I have the Netgear WNDA3100v2 wireless adapter, which is meant to change frequencies to stop interferrence.
