Have you got your PS3 in the DMZ of the router? Is it the PN supplied router?
I'd try another router if you can, I haven't had any issues with getting into parties on COD5 or 4.

DMZ is away of opening all ports to a certain local IP address on your network IE you want your ps3 to have a static ip address given to it by the router and then DMZ this IP address.
becareful not to allow any PC's to be given the DMZ'ed IP address thoe as you dont want all ports open to a pc. how ever gaming consoles are fine to have fully open and is common place esp for the ps3. i have my xbox in DMZ just for pieace of mind that nothing is bein blocked by the router.
i belive this is the CLI command you need to setup DMZ ip
