    Ditto. I came here hoping for an answer. If I find one, I will try to post here. I have RoadRunner with Time Warner. The internet IS working, but the PS3 & modem will NOT talk to one another -- even on a hard wired set up.

    The Motorola pdf manual I just looked through said to contact service provider if the answer to my problem was not addressed. Additionally, a friend told me that the modem may have a built in router. If so, the router's firewall may be blocking the PS3 from connecting to the network. I guess my next move is to call TW. I hope hope they can help me solve this....

I got mine working, & I feel like a total idiot. In my case, it was a very simple fix.

I am using a wired connection. I had my laptop connected to the modem & simply took the ethernet cable I had plugged in to my laptop & plugged it into the PS3. THAT was the problem. I did not reset or unplug the modem before changing from one piece of hardware to the other. The silly modem got confused & didn't know it should issue a new IP address.

No firewall, no router problem, just a simple "reset" of the modem.

The hard part to remember is that I will have to unplug or reset the modem EVERY time I switch between the PC & the PS3. EVERY TIME. That will get tiring very quickly.

I see a wireless connection in my immediate future! :)
Hope this helps.

Network ssid


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Where can i find the wep key


Your SB5120 is not a wireless device. I think that you are confusing the cable modem with the wireless router. New modems may have a wireless feature.
I assume that your modem is hooked up to a router that has a wireless feature and you are trying to set up or re-set the WEP encryption key.
Try searching for a manual under the router name.
You can always bring the router back to its original default state by pushing the re-set button, located on the back of the device. It is usually a small hole about the size of a paper clip near the on-off button. While the router is powered on, push the point of a pen into the hole for about 10 second. Then you can go through the router menu and reset all the passwords, WEP keys and other parameters.
If you need help on how to access or set up the router menu, please comment. Also let me know if this information helped you.

Where is the wep for it


hi
You can find the WEP or WPA Key settings for your router under the "Wireless" or "Wireless Security" sections in your router settings on your PC. Security must be set to WEP key not to any other type of security setting in order for you to have access to WEP Key information

I am trying to set up my wireless internet to my PS3. What do I choose WEP or WPA - PSK under WLan secutiry and how do I know the codes?


Wireless internet is provided with a wireless router. The router will be what you set up for the WEP or WPA codes.

Where do i find my wep key for my router


When a router is set up, a WEP or WPA key is needed for security-enabled home network. Check the router manualto see how it is set up, usually by typing 192.168.0.0 in the web browser address. That will lead you to seeing or changing the key (basically a password to allow a computer to reach the modem via the router.

I have a wii so im trying to get this wpa code to get internet acess and i cant find it


try this trouble shooting guide. Please try the following troubleshooting: Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES)
If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering: From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model). If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings: On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.

Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

How to set up wep password for my Motorola sb50101u wireless router


The WEP encryption key is configured in the wireless settings in the router. If your wireless router can support WPA and WPA2 then I suggest you use this because it is a much stronger encryption.
To secure your wireless network and view/configure or change the encryption key, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-
