What exactly have you tried?
i had a similar problem with my first psp,(i got a new one)
it was the psp that was defective,
do you have more than one game system?
if so does the same problem occur?
i think it might be your router.

Can not find WPA number to connect with internet a PS3


This is a cut and paste but it saves me time typing.
Find the Netgear router's WPA code on its setup page. Access the setup page by typing "192.168.0.1" into your Web browser's address bar and pressing "Enter." If that number doesn't work, try "192.168.1.1" instead. Type "admin" as the username and provide your router's password. Use "password" if you haven't set a custom password. Click "Wireless Settings" at the left side of the setup page and read the WPA code from the passphrase box on the page.

How do i connect my ps3 to he internet. i dont know my ip code or wpa key


Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase(or network key).
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless PS3 to the router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Hope this allows you to resolve the issue.

Connection settings for a ps3 via netgear WGR614


you need to check your routers firewall setting by accessing your router through the pc and make sure your plug and play settings are enabled. all can be found on the router setup page. the playstation only requires you to enter the WPSK or WPA wireless encryption key to log on so the problem is usually with the router....hope this helps.

Msg. conntected with limited access


Try this.

Unplug the Router.
Unplug the modem.
Wait about 15-20 secs.
Reconnect the modem.
wait about a minute or until all the lights are solid on the display.
Reconnect the Router.
Wait about another minute until everything is given time to start up.
Try connecting again.

If it still does that, it may be a problem with your computer that your trying to access with wirelessly.

My mother had that problem on one of her laptops, it turned out that her particular installation didn't support WPA or WEP incryption. I did a full reinstall and now it works.

If you want to avoid a full reinstall you can try uninstalling the wireless network card, then reinstalling it.(Make sure you go to your manufacturers web site first to download the proper driver for your model)

I hope this helps,
Simon.
