Have you tried manually adding a IP to your PS3 ie if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.254 set your PS3 to 192.168.1.60, with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and set the gateway to the IP address of your router in this example it would be 192.168.1.254..

SOURCE: wont connect to wi fi

This used to happen to me alot when connection was bad due to distance form the router. If your router is far away, find a way to move it closer. Reset the connection settings on the PS3 and do automatic search then just enter the WEP again

What is a wap/key for the playstation 3


The WPA key (WEP or WPA-PAK are the options you get when setting up) is a method of securing wireless networks. The key in simple term means the password. This setting is not dependent on your PS3 but rather your WIRELESS ROUTER. If you do not use a wireless router then this setting does not apply to you.


You will need to log into your router settings. Using a PC, connect directly to the router and enter the routers IP address in a internet browser. (I type in http://192.168.1.1/ in the address bar of my browser on my pc to connect to my Linksys router.) LAN-IP address is normally set to a default, private number. Linksys routers (which is what i use at home) for example use 192.168.1.1 for their internal IP address. D-link and Netgear routers typically use 192.168.0.1 some US Robotics use 192.168.123.254 and so on. But you should be able to find what your router ip address is by going to their website or looking in your users manual.
i'm able to find my WAP key under the "router access" in the sub menu of "administration tab" its all ******** out like any other protected fields but i know what mine is and is able to change it there.
In the security settings there should be a WPA key setting. If this is blank then your wireless internet is unprotected. If this is set, then you will need to enter the corresponding key into your PS3 to obtain access to the network.
if you know who set up your wireless network for your home you can ask them for the WEP or WPA key. in simple term that is just a password that they use to set up your WEP or WPA

If I understand you correctly then there is some issue with your router so I would go through it's settings make sure mac address filtering isn't turned on and change the wireless settings to see if there's some issue with the current setup.

How do you find your wep key, for a wireless connection


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

Unable to connect PS3 to linksys wrtg54gs


Have you tried hooking up with a cable directly to the router? have you tried hooking up with a cable directly to the modem? do you get any response from it either way. I use one of these with 2 ps3s and 2 laptops going and they work great. But I have WPA set up not WEP. If you go into the router settings is it setup to run more than 1 wireless item at a time? Did you manually set the ip address or is it set to automatic?

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

Ip address


check your ip configuration again if you set it up manually, set everything to automatic for easiest setup. If it continues to time out check you modem connections, and make sure if you have a router that you are entering any wep keys that are setup for the router.

My ps3 internet doesn't work


Easy Pie! This is a cinch anda guarantee work through. It involves putting your PS3 into a DMZ (demilitarized zone) which simply means opening all of the ports on it.

If you have the following problems, this is likely to fix it.
  • Not being able to join rooms
  • Not being able to speak over your headset
  • Not being able to hear other people over their headset
  • Not being able to join private games
  • Any problems to do with connectivity to the PSN, especially if your computer will connect to the internet, but your PS3 won't.


Part 1-(On PS3)
  • Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal IP address. Normally whenever a device connects to your router it will be assigned a different internal IP address. These are normally 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 and so on. Assigning a static one will ensure that your PS3 will get the same one every time it connects.
  • Go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 XMB. Choose whether you are using wireless or wired.
  • Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected.
  • This will display a page where customizable IP Addresses are available to be entered.
  • IP Address - This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Use 192.168.1.80, simply because it is unlikely that 80 other devices will be connected at the same time.
  • Subnet Mask - always set to 255.255.255.0
  • Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router.
    1. To get the exact ip of your router you should go to
    2. Start
    3. Run
    4. cmd [Hit Enter]
    5. Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway".

  • Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
  • Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
  • Proxy � When you get to the proxy screen, select "Do not use Proxy"
  • MTU � Automatic
  • UPnP � Enabled


Part 2-(On PC)
  • In your Internet Browser, type the address of your default gateway, this will take you to your Router Configuration Page. Look for any mention of DMZ
  • When you have found this, it will ask you for the Static IP of the DMZ host. This is simply the Internal IP that you assigned your PS3. We used 192.168.1.80.
  • Finally, turn off your Router, PC and PS3 for a few minutes to ensure that the new settings are loaded. Then you're ready to go!

Belkin wireless G router not connecting PS3


The PS3 should find the SSID of the network, or you could enter it. And then enter the encryption key, be it WEP or WPA. Everything else should be automatic.

You need to connect the ps3 to the wireless router you use the same ssid on all devices that connect into the router. I think thats where your settings are wrong.
