You dont have to go through all the trouble of calling an ISP. just go to Download.com, and download a program called "wirelesskeyview" it should be made by Nirsoft. run that program, and it'll tell you your WEP key.

WEP key is actually the network security key for ur wireless network,,if u have any computer which is online through the router u can find out the wep key.double click on the wireless icon on the online computer and u will find a box with 2 tabs,,click on the support tab at the top and u will find an option called default gateway,,preferably 192.168.1.254{preferably like this},,put this ip address in the address bar at the top and hit enter,,a box will come up with username and passwrd,,u hav to ask ur internet service provider for tat information and then after u get into the 2wire page u will find a option called wireless security,there u will find ur wep key,,or else if u look at the bottom panel of the 2wire u night find a 10 digit number which is the default wep key for 2wire netwrk,,best of luck, keep me posted

Ps3 says ip address timed out / wep key was entered incorrect.


Have you tried manually adding a IP to your PS3 ie if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.254 set your PS3 to 192.168.1.60, with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and set the gateway to the IP address of your router in this example it would be 192.168.1.254..

Hello, i am having problems connecting to the internet with my Ps3. i select easy at network setting, then i select my routers SSID name, after that i type in the WPA key. but then it tries to connect...


Probably its a problem between the router keys and playstation's. Try to reset the router and let it with no password (just for a moment, dont worry hehe). Now try to connect. If it works, try to replace the security for WEP. should work.

Good luck

Wont connect to wi fi; I am putting in the correct ssid and correct wep, but it tells me "the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out. The wep key you entered may not be correct." But the WEP is...


This used to happen to me alot when connection was bad due to distance form the router. If your router is far away, find a way to move it closer. Reset the connection settings on the PS3 and do automatic search then just enter the WEP again

My ps3 is asking me for a wep key and i cant find it


Type this address into your computers browser 192.168.2.1 from there you can access your routers settings.The wep key will be under security.Once you get the key you can input it on your ps3.If you do not have a wep key make one.Most gaming systems etc won't connect to a unprotected connection.

I have a netgear wireless router, I also have a new PS3, I want to access the internet via the PS3 but have lost my WEP key for the router. Whats the easiest way of finding the WEP key Thanks Darren


wep key or router administrative password?
if you have router admin password, you just go to your router settings and reset, delete all WEP key setting
(i assume one that connect to your router is only the PS3)
The setting should be web-based.
connect a pc to your router using LAN/ethernet port.
Access the router (you should know the router
ip address) via IE ex: http://192.168.0.1/
Read your router manual for details.

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

Wep key


You need to go to your router and look for it there.Its a really long key about 20-28 characters.

good luck.

Personally i'd turn WEP off as its not secure and it actually slows down your connection. you should control access to the router via mac address filtering.

Ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router how do i connect ps3 to computer ps ps3 is upstairs and pc downstairs


look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

note the wireless key.

go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

(Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).
