My son has been trying to log in on his ps3 with a headset but it says he needs a pass key?can you help plz.


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passkey or Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the PS3, laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

What is my wpa key for my ps3 what is it,it is for my ps3


The WPA key or WEP key you are looking for was entered by you or your service provider. You will have to look at the settings in the router to find it, usually under wireless configuration or wireless security settings in the router itself if you don't remember what it was set to.

I need my WPA key to connect my blu-ray player to my apple airport router. how can i retrieve the key


If you can access the router, then navigate to the wireless security settings and it should be displayed there. If your router is like any other, you can access it by starting your internet browser and typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Once prompted for username and password just enter ADMIN in the password and leave the username blank. This assumes you haven't accessed your router and changed the password to access the settings.

Need to find out my wpa key so i can hang it up to my ps3


The password is the encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop or PS3 to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your PS3 or computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Need wpa key to set up internet with my ps3 but dont know wat that is?


WPA is a Wireless Internet Authentication technology. It is setup through your home wireless router. If you have home wireless internet, you should know your WPA or WEP key. However, you dont have Wireless, you might just want to run a network cable from your router to the Playstation.

Lost wpa key


WPA is a security measure on your wireless router. It sounds like all you need to do is input your router password into the Internet settings on your PS3.

Need to change my security PW to WPA from WPA2 which xbox360 does not support


Went into my router settings and changed the security password for my network to WPA only. This allowed my Xbox 360 to see my network.

Network key


Hi gamejunky,
in order to get your WPA key on your router you will need to access your internal router configuration.  To do this you will need first your default gateway IP address, that is your IP address of your router.
If you are not sure what it is you will have to check your network settings, and under TCP/IP look for Default Gateway.
Once you have the IP enter it into your web browser address bar and hit enter.  You will then be prompted for a login to your router which should be default unless you set it.  The default is usually "default" or "admin" or "password" or some variation.
After this you should browse to your router security settings section and under WPA enter in a shared key.  Write it down somewhere safe, and you are done!
Hope this helps, and please take the time to vote!
