I am unable to connect to the internet as it is not accepting wep code

If you are using a router, the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS3 from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation 3 then move it close to the PS3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS3 to your modem, press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS3 on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually) If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go.

Had my ps3 for year and half now, never played online (80710102)

Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.

Playstation 3 online problems

Firstly if you connect to the PSN via wireless router, the router maynot be able to cope with the BIT rate that is needed to play the game.
My suggestion is:

- That you are hard wired to the internet - i.e connected via a modem cable.
- Go to your ps3 system menu and check the internet connection.

(the PS3 will now check IP address etc and say that is enabled)

- If this is the case (which it should as you can connect to the internet browser)

- This time disconnect the modem cable and turn off the PS3 (in that order).
- Turn on the PS3.

- Carry out system check it will be unable to give a success as your not connected.
- Once complete reconnect cable and ensure that wired connection is selected.
- Carry out check again.....success should be shown.

(the reason you do this is to get both PS3 and server to communicate as if they have never met before so it sets up a new partnership)

- Insert Disc and Enjoy

- I hope this has helped????

Ps3 online

gucciskills, this is a common problem if you have other people using your home internet connection at the same time. I have that problem every now and then even with no one on the home PC. It just means you are losing your connection. Try and reconfigure your router setting and see if that helps.
