You have to connect directly to the router using its ip address. Once in there go to wireless security and it should show you the current key being used

It is always better to leave the original WPA as it is random and is on a sticker on the router itself. See the link regarding changing the WPA on PS3.

It appears to be asking for the WIFI password. wpa/wpa2 psk are encryption protocols. In order to connect you need the shared network password.

What encryption is the router using? WEP, WPA, WPA2?
What version of Windows or MAC OS is the laptop?

For windows only WinXPsp3, Vista, 7 can connect using WPA/WPA2
Win95,98,ME, and XPsp1, sp2 are not able to use wpa wpa2

I believe you said that if you remove the security from your router that the laptop connects wirelessly, if this is the case you may need to update the wireless drivers to use it with encryption enabled.

Wep password


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router.

What is a WPA2 password?


A WPA2 password is simply a password, nothing more. The difference between a WPA2 password and a WPA password is the amount of security each have-- WPA2 is more secure than WPA.

How can I connect the ps3 to a wireless router di-524?


First, you need to configure the wireless adapter inside the D-Link router:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your network
* set an encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network.

Then, enter the SSID and the password on the PS3, to connect to your wireless network.

I want to set up password on my router


Step 1 Open a web browser and type the IP address of the DIR series router into the address bar (default is http://192.168.0.1). Press Enter

Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3 Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the lefthand side.
Step 4 From the Wireless Security Mode dropdown menu, select WPA-Personal encryption.

Step 5 From the WPA Mode dropdown, Under WPA, select the form of WPA you would like to use.

Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while maintaining higher security with stations that are WPA2 capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used.

For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security.

For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only. This mode uses TKIP cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode. To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher).


Step 6 In the Pre-Shared Key box, enter the desired Pre-shared key.

This is the "password" that allows communication between you're encrypted client (e.g. the PSP or your wireless computer) and the encrypted wireless signal coming from the router. This password must contain at least 8 characters, the characters can be anything you can create from your keyboard.

Step 7 Click on Save Settings

My son has been trying to log in on his ps3 with a headset but it says he needs a pass key?can you help plz.


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passkey or Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the PS3, laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.
