The security code, that is called network key, is stored inside the router.
Check your router manual, it will tell you how to connect to the router using Internet Explorer.
You put router IP number on Internet explorer bar and open router control panel, then you go into wireless settings, and there you find the key.

Saying error code 8013013d when i try to connect my internet


Hi there,

What you are experincing is a DNS (Domain Name Service) error,and this can be rectified by;

* Ensure that everything is plugged in correctly. The Network Adapter must be fit securely to the PS2 and an Ethernet cable must be securely connected to the Network Adapter. You will hear the Ethernet cable click into place when it is inserted properly.

Reconfigure your network settings. Insert the Network Adapter setup disc into your PS2 and run the setup utility. Make sure that all of your settings are correct, such as what type of network you have and what the name of your network is.

turn off your PS3 and modem. Wait a moment, then power on your modem. Once your modem has connected to the Internet, power on your PS3 and try again.

Disable firewall settings. If you have firewall settings on your network, they could be blocking the PS3 from getting a connection. Turn on your PC and go the "Network Connections" option in the control panel to disable any firewalls that are activated.

Disable your antivirus software. If you have antivirus software, this too could be blocking the PS3 from getting a connection. Open up your software and disable it and check your PS3 again

All the best,i hope this solves your network problem..

Can you hook the ps3 up to the internet wirelessly


Yes you can connect wirelessly to the internet with your ps3.

Minimum Requirements
  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
    Note: PlayStation 3 40GB / 60GB / 80GB / 160GB models ONLY (20GB model does not have built-in Wi-Fi connectivity)
  • SIXAXIS™ wireless controller (and USB cable)
  • AC power cord
  • A high-speed Internet account (cable or DSL) with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Router

    • Wireless router compatible with 802.11b or 802.11g Wi-Fi standards
    • Or an Ethernet (wired) router with a Wireless Access Point (WAP)
      You may need to open firewall port numberson your router to connect to the Internet.
      The PlayStation 3 will not connect to the Internet through the USB ports.
    //
  • Updated system software installed on your PlayStation 3
    Visit PlayStation 3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.
  • Your Wireless Network Settings

    • SSID
      You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the PlayStation 3 scan results.
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.
    • WEP or WPA Security Key
      If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.
    • MAC address
      You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your network settings.

My ps3 would connect to the internet


Try connecting to your router with a cable and see if that is able to get you online.

If it does, then 9/10 its a signal problem.

If it doesn't, then you have a settings problem.

Also, is your router close enough to the ps3 to supply sufficient signal to the console? From my experience, the router needs to be pretty close to the ps3 for it to get a good signal or if you have a wireless N type router. Wireless b/g routers usually need to be very close to their source for it to be fully effective as the ps3 requires.

Can't connect ps3 internet


Try entering the WAP code or whatever security you have correctly. If it still refuses to work try plugging in your brain by sticking your index finger and middle finger in the socket.

Need help with ps3 internet hook up


The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
Goto settings
Goto network settings
Goto network connection, select enable
Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
Select wired or wireless
For wireless use scan or enter manually
Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.
