Default need to increase the signal strength

I have a D-Link DIR-655 at one end of the house. The PS3 is located at the opposite side of the house. The PS3 has a a signal strength of 20% with a lot of drops that make it impossible to play any game. I purchased the WG602 thinking I could connect a wire to the PS3 and one end to the WG602, and use the WG602 to connect to the wireless network. I'd bring the WG602 half way between my PS3 and DLink DIR655. But it doesn't seem like the WG602 can do that. Did I buy the WG602 thinking it can do something that it can't? Or am I not configuring the WG602 properly?

Current Setup:
Code:
                                                                PS3

Router
Router as at one end of the house, ps3 is on the 2nd floor at the other end of the house.

Is there any wired device i can attach to the ps3 and bring it to a middle room, which can pick up a stronger signal and use that to play games online using the ps3
Code:
                                         device-----------------PS3

Router
or something to repeat or increase the wireless signal so the ps3 can be playable?
Code:
                                        [device]                 PS3

WDS compatibility with different brands may not be easy to accomplish... you can get 1 more WG602 to accomplish this set up

D-Link ----WG602 )))) ((((WG602-----PS3

I don't know what WDS is, but I googled it. D-Link disabled the WDS on their later models of the 655 router.

To do your setup, would I need to disable the wireless on my 655?
