You need to login into your router and check the wireless security settings. You probably have a WEP key setup.
you'll need it's ip address. refer to your manual. if you dont have that, go to the manufacuters website and read it there.

Cant connect to the internet

You did not elaborate further why you cannot connect you PSP to internet. But I will assume that you have a wireless connection within reach and that your PSP Wi-Fi switch is turned on (switch on the right).
1.) If your wireless network requires a Network Key (WEP or WPA), you need to know the exact key to be able to connect to it. 2.) To connect to internet, open Internet Browser in your PSP and this will prompt you to connect to a Wireless network. 3.) To set-up, press the 'scroll right' button (>) until you reach the "Network Key". Choose the type of key your network is using (WEP, WPA or other) then press 'scroll right' (>) again until you reach the last menu. 4.) If you do not encounter any error, you can start browsing. If you still do, you may have to leave the specific errors or further details of your problem for us to assess...
P.S. My favorite is God of War (I hope you have tried playing it)...

Where do i find my wpa network security key


Good day, In default you can see the wpa or network security key under the router. It should be on a sticker under the router labeled WPA or Network Key. Usually its beside the model number or serial number of your router as well. Hope this information help you. Have a great day.

I want to password protect my router


Welcome to Fixya. If you want to make you connection secure the you need to set a Network Key on your router and need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security You can select either WEP, WPA or WPA2 to make it secure and under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Generate a personalize key for your network.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Whats a wpa key? I have tried connecting to my router on my wireless device and my wireless device ask's for a wpa key? is it the same as a lan key?


You need to use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to the router, and then access the web-server inside the router, and then run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard". When you do, you will set:

* the SSID ("network name") -- pick anything you prefer
* the encryption-level (hint: use 'WPA')
* the password for the network -- pick anything you can remember

Then, from a wireless device, do a "View Available Wireless Networks".
Select the SSID, and enter the password, to make a connection.

How do I secure the router so that no one else can access it? model Dlink - DIR-615 Bruce

You should follow the next steps:
1. Log in via
default username: Admin (use admin if it doesn't work) password: (leave it blank with no password) ----- 2. Go to setup tab ----> internet ----> internet connection wizard 2.1 CHANGE PASSWORD ! click next 2.2 choose time zone. 2.3 Configure your Internet Connection DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address) Choose this if your Internet connection automatically provides you with an IP Address.
2.4. press "clone your computer's MAC address" ; hostname: 'your computer name'
3. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ----> Wireless Network Setup Wizard (after this we're gonna do manual settings) 3.1 give your network a name= SSID 3.2.Automatically assign a network key (Recommended) and chose WAP or WAP2 3.3 Write down the network key Or do printscr and save this page.
You can leave it here, but it's better if you continue with the next step: -----
4. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ---->Manual Wireless Network Setup 4.1
Wireless Network Settings Enable Wireless : ALWAYS Wireless Network Name : (Also called the SSID) the name you gave in 3.1 802.11 Mode : chose "mixed 802.11n,g and b" Enable Auto Channel Scan : YES Wireless Channel : AUTO Transmission Rate : BEST (Mbit/s) Channel Width : AUTO 20/40 MHz Visibility Status : !!!Invisible!!! (so that no outsiders know your SSID except you)

4.2 Wireless Security Mode : WPA-Personal
4.3 WPA mode: WPA2 only Cipher type: AES Group key update interval : 3600 seconds
4.4 Pre-Shared Key : the one that you generated in 3.2.
Now you're all set, but you can't see your network from your PC (as you set it to be invisible in step 4.1). Now you'll have to set it up manually (the specific instructions will depend on your operating system) You'll need to enter the following date when you set it: your SSID name that you entered in 3.1 wireless security: WPA2 personal type: AES enter password that you've generated in 3.2 (or 4.4).

My son can't connect to x box live, it keeps asking for the wpa key, what is this and where do I get it from?

Your WPA key is simply put, the password that protects your internet. (Wi-Fi Protected Access). I'm assuming you have a wireless internet and that is how your son is connecting to Xbox Live? (Unless he is mistakenly connecting to another wireless network other than your own.)
Someone in your household should know what the WPA key is, because it was the password set to protect your internet. (Most likely done so on a PC or laptop.)
So here are my suggestions:
1. Make sure your son is connecting to the right wirless network on his Xbox. You can do this by going to Settings --> System Settings --> Network Settings --> Configure Network --> Clicking A once you get to that Menu, and then scanning for Networks. Chances are you will get a few results. In order to connect to Xbox Live, you have to chose your wireless network.
2. If no one in your household knows the WPA key, I would suggest contacting who ever set up your internet, or another option would be to connect to Xbox Live directly, using the modem cable. (You would have gotten this when you originally bought the Xbox.) This can get pretty complicated however, so I would suggest trying to figure out the WPA key.

I hope I was of some help, feel free to contact me if you're still confused.
