I had just the same problem, when netgear upgraded the firmware it would no longer connect. To solve this i went onto netgear.com, click support, enter the model number, then download firmware 40.01.37. not the most recent one. Follow the online instuctions after installing the firmware you should have no problem with entering the password.

It stopped connecting to wireless!


Myra, The PS3 internal antenna when connected to the board, is only a thin protected wire, so it is not the greatest system for range for wifi. However, it would seem the issue you are having is not connecting to the wireless router, but the router to the internet. The PS3 asks after you enter a new connection, if you want to test it. I always do this test and it is valuable. At the top of the test screen, you will see "connection to router"-Pass/fail, then connecting to internet-Pass/fail, then connecting to PSN-pass/fail. Do you have other devices connected to the router you are using? If yes, then you have a more serious problem. If no, then you just have to access the router via PC and set up the correct settings to allow your PS3 to connect to the internet. There are several different routers out there, so you will have to consult the manufacturer to set it up. Just a few key notes here. If you are ok with anyone accessing your internet, simply don't password protect it. And also, make sure that the router is transmitting by making sure it is in"air"mode. If it's not airing the SSID, then no device will pick it up. ^^ I hope this helps, and good luck.

Getting error code 8001000a


__you can try this:______

I struggled setting up the wireless internet connection on my PS3. It seemed that no matter what I did, I kept getting the error message 8001000B. After reading some help materials on this website, I determined that I needed to add to my router list of allowable MAC addresses the PS3 MAC address. Once I did this, the setup was as easy as shown on the manual.

Steps:

1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.168.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__or this:___

After looking over the internet for answers I found a fix for the 8001000A and when the Playstation 3 (with firmware version 2.76) is hooked to a wireless router (in my case a Netgear WNR834B v2). Below are the steps I took.
  1. Reset your router to factory defaults.
  2. Go to Select Network Settings under Settings in the home menu.
  3. Select Easy then Wireless.
  4. Then select Enter Manually. Then enter in your SSID of your router. Then rest of the setting should be set to Automatic.
  5. However DO NOT TEST CONNECTION. Just save and turn off the playstation3.
  6. Then turn off Playstation 3 from the back of the drive.
  7. Unplug the power cord and wait 30 seconds.
  8. Plug the power cord in and turn on the Playstation 3 switch.
  9. Wait 5 seconds and turn on the Playstation 3 and it will work. You can even test your connection and it will work.
However if you want your security settings on the router then once the router settings are back then repeat steps 2 through 9. Hope this works for all. I do not think replacing the unit is the answer. Any question just let me know.

Ps3 wont connect to wireless


Hi,

Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Thanks

This setting is available only on PS3™ systems that are equipped with the wireless LAN feature.

Set the method for connecting the system to the Internet. Internet connection settings vary depending on the network environment and the devices in use. The following procedure describes a typical setup when connecting to the Internet wirelessly.

Check that the settings for the access point have been completed.
Check that there is an access point connected to a network with Internet service near the system. Settings for the access point are typically set using a PC. For details, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point.

Confirm that an Ethernet cable is not connected to the PS3™ system.

Select (Network Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.

Select [Internet Connection Settings].
Select [Yes] when a confirmation screen is displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet.

Select [Easy].


Select [Wireless].


Select [Scan].
A list of access points within the range of the PS3™ system is displayed.

Depending on the model of PS3™ system in use, you may have the option [Automatic]. Select [Automatic] when using an access point that supports automatic setup. If you follow the on-screen instructions, the necessary settings will be completed automatically. For information on access points that support automatic setup, contact your local retailer.


Select the access point that you want to use.
An "SSID" is an identification name assigned to an access point. If you do not know which SSID you should use or if an SSID is not displayed, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.


Check the SSID for the access point.

Select the security settings that you want to use.
The types of security settings vary depending on the access point. Contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for information on which setting to select.


Enter the encryption key.
The encryption key is displayed as a series of [*]. If you do not know the encryption key, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.

When you have finished entering the encryption key and have confirmed the network configuration, a list of settings will be displayed.

Depending on the network environment, additional settings for PPPoE, proxy server or IP address may be required. For details on these settings, refer to the information from your Internet service provider or the instructions supplied with the network device.

Save your settings.

Test the connection.
If you select [Test Connection], the system will attempt to connect to the Internet.

Confirm the connection test results.
If a successful connection has been made, information on the network will be displayed.

Hints If the connection fails, follow the on-screen instructions to check your settings. Also refer to the information from your Internet service provider and the instructions supplied with the network device in use.
If you test the connection immediately after selecting [Automatic] > [AOSS™] in step 7, the router settings may not be completed and the connection may fail. Wait approximately 1 or 2 minutes before testing the connection.

Ps3 error code 80711008 and wpa


OK for your WPA you can check the security key by accessing the router http://192.168.1.1 .. password is by default "admin" and username is blank...go to the "wireless" tab and check the ssid...under "wireless security" check the security key...if you have "wep" check the numbers in "key 1"....
now make sure that you connect to your own ssid and type the correct key...
and you are right , you need wlan to connect to the internet wirelessly...however , first make sure that you have internet working through the router..if not you will have to configure the router and for that you a computer connected to the router...

As for your IP address simple use this site http://www.ip-adress.com/ should be everything you need

I cant play games online


You do not need a DMZ for ps3. jsut setup a SSID if wireless. Encrypt it (for your own saftly) and PS3 has wireless capablity. Just join the network with the SSID and WEP key and the PS3 will get an IP address. Also no port mapping is needed. Leave all port to auto open due to DHCP is going to get your PS3 a new ip every time you turn it on.

Cant get my ps3 to connect to internet through my wireless router


Assuming the media test works (So the cable/wireless connections are OK) then it's possible that you're out of available IP addresses in the router. It shouldn't be a problem (Most router configs allow for over 250 IP addresses), but it might only have limited leases.

Try switching everything off (Except for the router), restart the router and then try the PS3. That should rule out a problem with DHCP

Wii wireless connection



On your computer Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1

Look for the SSID and write it down.
Also write down the type of encryption you are using. WAP, WEP, or none.
Also write down the security Passphrase.

Also you will need the IP address, in Windows click on Start, Run and enter 'cmd" in the run box.

At the command line type "ipconfig" and record the IP address

On the wii, You should be able to have the wii look for a Wireless Access Point. If that does not work try the Manual Setup in the Internet Connections menu.

Enter SSID
Enter Type of Encryption.
Enter Security Passphrase
Enter IP address
MTU value is not required. Nintendo recommends 1500 if you are having issues.
