Hi, and welcome to FixYa,

First a clarification:
Is PSP (PlayStation Portable)?

If so, then your SSID must be the same all over on you network, othervice you wont connect to the internet or in you LAN (lokel area network).

The same goes for the Key, the same all over.

You can se the key in you router Wireless -> Wireles security, do not forget the Key number ie 1, 2, 3, or 4.

Cant find the network key number


Login to the web-interface "inside" the router.
Run its "wireless networking setup wizard" to set an SSID, to set 'WPA' encryption, and to set a password/key for your wireless network.

I want to connect internet on my psp through a wireless access point but iam constantly recieving dns errors , what settings should be made on my psp and my access point? to solve the problem???


  1. Connect your router
  2. Open a brower window on your computer, preferably Internet explorer.
  3. Enter the IP address of the router (Ex: 192.168.1.1)
  4. Upon entering the IP address of the router in the browser it should direct you to your router box. If this does not happen then most likely your router box has been configured to a different IP address. To get this IP number run the set-up program.
  5. Now in the routher settings navigate within your router's settings dialog and locate "Wirless Settings"
  6. Check if you are assigned a SSID
  7. Check your region
  8. You should be on Channel 11. Sometimes the channel could different, in such situations make sure you are on the same channel.
  9. Check if "Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID)" is enabled
  10. Check if "Enable Wireless access point" is enabled
  11. Set authentication as "Open system". You will find this option under "Security Encryption (WEP)"
  12. Set strength of encryption as "Disabled"
  13. Now click on "Wireless Card Access List". You may need to provide your password again.
  14. Make sure "Turn on Access control" option is turned off "Disabled"
  15. You should now see your PSP listed. No, you dont see then on your psp, go to "system settings" and then to "system information". You will see MAC address, now make a note of this MAC address.
  16. Now in "Wireless Card Access List" select "Add". If you are not able to do this then enter the PSP's MAC address and click "Finish/Apply" when done.
  17. In WAN settings, verify that "Connect Automatically as required" is enabled
  18. In "LAN TCP/IP Settings" make note of all of the information included. You may need this later. You may not, but it's a good idea to take note of it now.
  19. Under "Router Status" make note of all the relevant information included here as well. You may or may not need it.

I have a NETGEAR router and I need the SSID and the type of sceurity. With the password. Can you help


Looks you havent configure your router. To get SSID and security key you have to configure it on your router.

You have to manually assign SSID on your Wireless Settings and Select proper security like WPA or WPA2 and assign preshare key ( security key). After assigning when you search for SSID on your Laptop or wireless computer it will you SSID you configured on your Router if you click on the SSID to connect it will ask you security key, supply the preshared key you configured on router.

If you are very new to router you might need to refer manual

I need to find my ssid to get internet on my psp


The default SSID is Netgear but if you have changed this to something else then you will need to access the setup page of the router.

Open a web browser to a computer that has access to the router. In the address bar, type www.routerlogin.net.

By default, the username is admin, and the password is password.

Once in the Netgear page, under Setup, go to Wireless settings.

You will be able to get your SSID and security settings from that page.

I hope this helps!

I need to know my wep key or ssid codes, whats the difference? i need it to set up for my ps3 online


WEP (wired equivalent privacy)

The privacy protocol specified in IEEE 802.11 to provide wireless LAN users protection against casual eavesdropping. WEP refers to the intent to provide a privacy service to wireless LAN users similar to that provided by the physical security inherent in a wired LAN.


When WEP is active in a wireless LAN, each 802.11 packet is encrypted separately with an RC4 cipher stream generated by a 64-bit RC4 key. This key is composed of a 24-bit initialization vector (IV) and a 40-bit WEP key. The encrypted packet is generated with a bitwise exclusive OR (XOR) of the original packet and the RC4 stream. The IV is chosen by the sender and can be changed periodically so every packet won't be encrypted with the same cipher stream. The IV is sent in the clear with each packet. An additional 4-byte Integrity Check Value (ICV) is computed on the original packet and appended to the end. The ICV (be careful not to confuse this with the IV) is also encrypted with the RC4 cipher stream.

WEP has been widely criticized for a number of weaknesses:

Key management and key size
Key management is not specified in the WEP standard; without interoperable key management, keys will tend to be long-lived and of poor quality. Most wireless networks that use WEP have one single WEP key shared between every node on the network. Access points and client stations must be programmed with the same WEP key. Since synchronizing the change of keys is tedious and difficult, keys are seldom changed. Also, the 802.11 standard does not specify any WEP key sizes other than 40 bits. 

The IV is too small

WEP's IV size of 24 bits provides for 16,777,216 different RC4 cipher streams for a given WEP key, for any key size. Remember that the RC4 cipher stream is XOR-ed with the original packet to give the encrypted packet that is transmitted, and the IV is sent in the clear with each packet. The problem is IV reuse. If the RC4 cipher stream for a given IV is found, an attacker can decrypt subsequent packets that were encrypted with the same IV or can forge packets.

Weakness: The ICV algorithm is not appropriate
The WEP ICV is based on CRC-32, an algorithm for detecting noise and common errors in transmission. CRC-32 is an excellent checksum for detecting errors, but an awful choice for a cryptographic hash. Better-designed encryption systems use algorithms such as MD5 or SHA-1 for their ICVs. 

Authentication messages can be easily forged

SSID (Service Set IDentifier)
The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies an 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. 


The SSID is a secret key which is set by the network administrator.

You must know the SSID to join an 802.11 network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.
SSID Security Issues

The fact that the SSID is a secret key instead of a public key creates a key management problem for the network administrator. Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.
Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".
Disabling SSID Broadcasting

Many Wireless Access Point (WAP) vendors have added a configuration option which lets you disable broadcasting of the SSID. This adds little security because it is only able to prevent the SSID from being broadcast with Probe Request and Beacon frames. The SSID must be broadcast with Probe Response frames. In addition, the wireless access cards will broadcast the SSID in their Association and Reassociation frames. Because of this, the SSID cannot be considered a valid security tool.
An SSID by any other name

The SSID is also referred to as the ESSID (Extended Service Set IDentifier).


Airsnort, Aircrack 2.1, Cain & Abel are some of the wireless packet sniffing tools which can decode the authorization key.

How do I setup a secure wireless connection?


Check in you manual on logging into your router. The address will be something like: http://192.168.0.1. The manual will also tell you the User name and the password. Go to the wireless page. and give your network a name (SSID). In the security part of the page, select type and any other items including a KEY. Keep the KEY simple so you can remenber it. Actually, write it down in the manual. Select APPLY and then after a few seconds you can exit you web browser. Click on Available Wireless Connections in the system tray and look for your SSID name. Click your and Connect. When it asks for the KEY, type it in. You will type it in twice and then be connected. If any one knows your KEY, they can get on your network. If they do not know your KEY they cannot get on.

SSID Password


Hi...I am not sure if you need the SSID or the network key? The SSID is the network name, the one you see displayed in 'Available wireless networks'. The network key (also called passphrase, authentication key, PSK etc) is the one Windows asks for to connect to a secure network.

If you need the network key/passphrase:

1. Login to your router, by typing http://192.168.1.1 into a web browser (or whichever IP address is correct for your router).

2. You should see a popup box, requesting your username and password. If you have not changed these, they are username: admin and password: admin - otherwise please enter the username and password you have set.

3.If successful, you should now see your router user interface.
Go to Advanced > Wireless Security. If you are using WPA encryption, the network key (password) you need should be displayed under PSK string.
(Details taken from Dynamode UK website).

Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if you need further help.

Slow web page loading


To setup and improve your wireless network’s signal, you can change your Wireless Network Name (SSID) and/or try using a different channel.
Changing your Router’s SSID and Channel
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page.
Accessing the Router’s Web-Based Setup Page
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Links-ys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the Wireless tab.
Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID) and if it’s still set to ‘linksys’ change it to something unique then click Save Settings.
click the Wireless tab and select the Wireless Security tab.
Step 3:
Select WEP under Security Mode.
Step 4:
Select any number on the Default Transmit Key field to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected number one.
Step 5:
Select 64 bits on WEP Encryption
Step 6:
Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey,” then click Generate.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 10 characters.
Step 7:
The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.
And click save settings..
