By default, my PS3 was coming up with NAT3 for its Internet connection. That means that the firewall was blocking some needed ports. Following this tutorial I managed to get it to NAT2, which means that everything is working fine. Basically I had to set up the PS3 with a static IP instead of relying on the router's DHCP. Then I had to forward TCP ports 80, 443, 5223 and UDP ports 3478, 3479, 3658 to that IP. The only PITA was trying to find which ports were necessary without putting the thing in the DMZ, which would seem silly, if not dangerous.

Update! As I noted above with the strikeout, I found out that I don't need ports 80 and 443 forwarded. I didn't understand why the PS3 would need to be an HTTP/HTTPS server anyway.
