How do I conect to the internet to play games


Below are instructions for connecting the PS3 to a wireless network (Wi-Fi) using the [Easy] setting. For other network connection options, see How to connect the PS3 to the Internet.

Text walkthrough

Power-cycle ALL network equipment.

Turn off (unplug) all of your network equipment, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, and broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. See How to power cycle PlayStation 3 network devices for more details.


Make sure that all settings for the access point have been completed.

Check that there is an access point connected to a network with Internet service near the PlayStation 3. 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 connect to the PlayStation 3. If the Ethernet cable is plugged in, the PlayStation 3 will automatically attempt to connect via the wired connection.


On the XMB home menu, go to (Settings) > (Network Settings) and press the button.


Then go to (Internet Connection) and select [Enabled].


Then scroll down to (Internet Connection Settings) and press the button.


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


Select [Easy] and press the button.


When prompted for which type of connection method, select [Wireless] and press the button.


Under WLAN Settings, select [Scan] and press the button.

If you own a wireless access point that supports AOSS (AirStation One-Touch Secure System), then you must select [Automatic]. These wireless access points are commonly made by Buffalo, Inc. AOSS will automatically configure the necessary settings. Follow the on screen prompts to complete the setup.


You will see a list of access points within range of the PlayStation 3. From the list, pick your SSID and press the button.

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.


On the next screen, confirm the SSID then press the right direction button to continue. If you press the button, you will edit the SSID.


Select the security setting that you want to use and press the button.


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.


If you selected a Security Setting, enter your security key.

Press the [Start] button to exit the onscreen keyboard.

Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.


The encryption key is displayed as a series of eight [*] no matter how long the key may be. If you do not know the encryption key, contact the person who set up or maintains the access point for assistance.


Once you have entered all the information, a list of settings will be displayed.

Press the button to save these settings.


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.


Press the button to test the connection.


When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed").

If you have successfully connected to your network, congratulations, you have completed the network setup process

Please can some one tell me directions on how to get to my wep key so i can set it or reset it ive had psp3 for two months and cant enjoy what every one else is and my wife said if i cant get it to wrk ex...


first of all, WEP stands for "wireless encryption protocol" and the WEP KEY is the password required to access an encrypted wireless (wifi) network. the key is set and modified via a console that you access via a web browser and is hosted on the router.
it seems to me that you have a playstation 3, with a wireless capability and you wish to connect it to your router and are being asked what the WEP KEY is so that you can connect to the network.
i can not tell you what the WEP KEY in your case is, because it can be set to anything that you want.
you need to access your router and check what the key is, it is the same key that your computers and smart phones use to access the wireless network (wifi) in your home.

I cant get a wpa key.it always tells me wpa key has timed out or is not correct


Hello,

Thank you for using Fixya!

The WPA key can be found your router's setup page or configuration page (under wireless settings).

If you do not know how to access your router's setup page I would suggest contact your router's manufacturer to assist you on getting the WPA key. If you are connecting to other peoples wireless network then I'm afraid that is not possible unless you can ask them to provide you the key.

You can also go to www.portforward.com, to know on how to access router's setup page for different brand and model.

Hope this helps.

Thank you,

My router is detecting the internet but i cant get the internet on my computer. I cant connect to my router but it says that im connected with limited access. I have it hooked up through the router with a...


Limited or no connectivity indicates that the computer cannot acquire a valid IP address. This is due to incorrect network key you have entered. We need to check the correct WEP key in your router's setup page. Here are the troubleshooting steps we recommend you try:

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Please click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click on Wireless Settings under Setup page.
5. Take note of the SSID.
6. Scroll down, look for the Security Options and check whether WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-fi Protected Access) is selected.
7. If its WEP is enabled, copy the value of the selected Key number. If WPA is selected, take note of the Passphrase.
8. To configure the computer with wireless adapter, please consider the following:

Configuring the NETGEAR adapter and Saving the Profile

a. Open the NETGEAR Smart Wireless Settings Utility icon located at the lower right portion of your computer screen. It will then open the Settings tab.
b. Change the Network Name SSID to match the one on your router.

Tip: As an alternative to typing in the SSID, you can use the Network tab to view the available wireless networks. Double click on the desired network.

c. Click the Apply button to activate the connection.
d. Enter a name for your profile (e.g. NETGEAR to Home Network) and click the Save Profile button to store the current settings.

Note: The above procedure applies only if you are trying to connect to a wireless network with no wireless security.

If the computer is using Windows built-in wireless program to manage the wireless adapter, please follow the steps below:

For Windows XP Service Pack 1

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
b. Click on the Advanced tab.
c. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
d. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network.
e. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
f. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Network.
5. Select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab. Please ask assistance from the wireless adapter vendor for configuration if using a proprietary wireless utility (non-NETGEAR wireless adapters).

Ive got verizon wireless broadband for my lap top and cant seem to be able to get online with ps3


Can you provide more information?  The Verizon Wireless broadband access is for your laptop only.  In order for the PS3 to take advantage of it, you'll have to setup Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop. That way your PS3 can connect to your laptop via your laptop's wireless connection (in Ad Hoc mode since you don't have a wifi network) and access the internet via the VzW Broadband Access.

Cant connect to http://192.168.0.50


what you need to do here is manually set your static IP adress, I had this problem as well and I know what to do.
you need to go to your network connections ( Controll panel>network connections) in xp (Controll panel>network and sharing center then left hand it sais: change adapter settings )
then rightclick your wireless connection and look at it's properties. then you need to click on Internet Protocol, for vista/windows 7 it's internet protocol 4 which you need to select. once selected click on properties just a little below.
there you'll see the setting is on: obtain Ip automaticly, but you'll have to choose ( use the following IP adress ) and enter

IP adress: 192.168.0.99
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.0.50
once entered press OK and now go to your browser and type the routers adress (192.168.0.50) in my case and now you should be in your modems setup menu.
once changed your setting you need to change your IP back to auto obtain IP adress. or your internet still won't work
