You are unable to create a WEP key for the simple fact that a WEP is Wired Equivalent Privacy which is created via a router or modem. This is used to keep people from hacking into a network system such as a home or office.

Keep having to enter the wep key to start ps3 then it times out saying the key is incorrect ? Recently changed from AOL to BT and console was working fine but now no service


Can I just ask, are you entering your AOL WEP key or your new BT WEP key? Just in case you didnt know your BT router will have its WEP key on a sticker on the back of the router. You need to go into network settings --> internet settings and change the WEP key that is registered to the system. It should then connect with no problem.

Hope this helps.

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,

How doi find my wep key?


Your WEP key is the key for your wireless (wifi) router. You will need to check the settings of your specific router in order to access the WEP key settings. Your computers on the wireless network have the WEP key too, but it is like a password and cannot be read from the computers, it is only found on the router setup/settings.

I need a code called (WEP) and i cant find it on my computer. I need this code so i can play my ps3 again. Help fast!


You need to get the WEP key from the router that you are using to connect to the Internet. On the Setup or Security screen there will be a Network Key or Password. That is the code your PS3 is looking for. Once you enter it you should be able to then get on the Internet.

The wep key is what you use when setting up your wireless router, if you have forgotten what this is, you can reset the router by holding down the button at the back. If you haven't set up a wep key you can select none, or see if you can find it out from your computer/laptop.

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
