MY PS3 WILL NOT CONNECT TO MY WIRELESS ROUTER DLINK 615, everythink else does.


This will connect for the following reasons:

1. Check if the wireless security key is correct.
2. The wireless security key is at times case sensitive.
3. Try and connect to your own wireless network
4. Finally, check with other wireless devices at your place, if they are connecting.
5. If the security is high, lower down the wireless security type to 64-bit WEP

For verifying all this, contact your router vendor.

Thanks for asking.

Ps3 wep key


The WEP Key is the Password you used to protect your router. To fix this problem, uninstall your router from your computer and reinstall it. When setting it up, keep everything as default and when it gets to WEP Key, make one up and write it down. Finish installing your router.

***KEY THING IS TO WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN***

On your PS3, go to Network Settings and setup a wireless network. Let it search for your network, put in your custom WEP Key, and let it set up from there. When you enter your WEP Key, before hitting next, if there is an AOSS button on your router (Front/Top button on your router that allows networks to connect) you want to push it prior to moving on so your PS3 is discovered. You should be good to go from there.

Good luck! If i've helped you out please give me a good rating!

Respectfully,

Don

I dont know my wep key for my psp


If you are trying to connect to a wireless network using your PSP, what you need is the WEP for the wireless network.

If you are using a home wireless network you would need to ask the person who set the WEP key.

Or, you could go to the wireless router, and there should be a little reset place to push with a pin. Press it, hold it for twenty seconds or so, and then go onto a computer connected to the wireless router and enter in the MAC address that you should be able to find on the bottom of your router on a little sticker.or if that is not found, you can do a search on your wireless router's MAC address on the internet. Just do a search in Google or Bing or whatever for the wireless router model and look for the router's web address.

Enter that address (which should look like a xxx.xxx.x.x format) into the address bar on the Internet Browser. You will be taken to your router's webpage where you can change that information. You sign on as Admin, usually there is no need for a password after a hardware reset, and you should see a security setting option. Select the WEP or WPA setting and enter in your own key. Write it down, because if you have any other computers or devices connected to the wireless router they will all need to set their internet secuirty protocol to that new key or they will not be able to access the internet.

Go into your PSP Network settings and go through the options, enter in your new key, and bam! Your there. :)

Or you SHOULD be.

If you are in a new area, you will need to know their key or hope you are in a place with unrestricted access. :)

(If you didnt know, If you have a PS3 you can connect to it REMOTELY through your PSP if you register them together, and watch movies downloaded to your PS3, listen to music, look at your pictures, about everything but play games that you have on your PS3. From just about anywhere in the world that you have internet access through your PSP and your PS3 is connected. But that's a different matter! ;) )

I deleted my connection and now i cant find my WEP code help plzzz :(


Do you have a laptop/desktop with a wired connection?

goto Internet Explorer

type in 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (may be one or the other).

you should get a login prompt. Depending on your brand of router, the login could be different; however, I would try "admin" for user and "admin" for pass to see if that get's you in.

This will take you to your router's webpage. Goto the wireless portion, it should have a wireless security section within that. Click on WEP key and re-type the key to whatever you can remember.

Hit apply or save.

Goto to your PS3 make a new connection with the new WEP key.

Hope this helps,
Bill

Ps3 wep key


What router are you using? If it is a lynksys then go to your web browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and enter in your login info, the default login is user: admin and either no password or the password is admin also. click the wireless tab and then click wireless security and it will display your wep code.

Wep key for ps3


you will need to obtain your wep key no matter what...you can get it from whoever your router company is (if it is a linksys then call the linksys support number and obtain the key) in most cases thought the wep key is located on the router itself near the bar code. It will be a long number, When you get it and enter it in to the network settings then it should pick up the signal
