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.

Hooking up wireless on ps3 and when I put the wpa key in it doesn't work what is the wpa key


This key code is found on your router.
It is the wireless security code.

You need to go to your router manufacture website and get information on how to get to your routers homepage via windows.

Once at the routers homepage find your wep or wpa key and enter it into your ps3.

What is a wap/key for the playstation 3


The WPA key (WEP or WPA-PAK are the options you get when setting up) is a method of securing wireless networks. The key in simple term means the password. This setting is not dependent on your PS3 but rather your WIRELESS ROUTER. If you do not use a wireless router then this setting does not apply to you.


You will need to log into your router settings. Using a PC, connect directly to the router and enter the routers IP address in a internet browser. (I type in http://192.168.1.1/ in the address bar of my browser on my pc to connect to my Linksys router.) LAN-IP address is normally set to a default, private number. Linksys routers (which is what i use at home) for example use 192.168.1.1 for their internal IP address. D-link and Netgear routers typically use 192.168.0.1 some US Robotics use 192.168.123.254 and so on. But you should be able to find what your router ip address is by going to their website or looking in your users manual.
i'm able to find my WAP key under the "router access" in the sub menu of "administration tab" its all ******** out like any other protected fields but i know what mine is and is able to change it there.
In the security settings there should be a WPA key setting. If this is blank then your wireless internet is unprotected. If this is set, then you will need to enter the corresponding key into your PS3 to obtain access to the network.
if you know who set up your wireless network for your home you can ask them for the WEP or WPA key. in simple term that is just a password that they use to set up your WEP or WPA

Need wpa key to set up internet with my ps3 but dont know wat that is?


WPA is a Wireless Internet Authentication technology. It is setup through your home wireless router. If you have home wireless internet, you should know your WPA or WEP key. However, you dont have Wireless, you might just want to run a network cable from your router to the Playstation.

I have connected my PS3 to the internet wirelessly before but I have recently moved into a new home. I consistently get the 8013013d Error code when trying to connect to the internet... But my room mate...


Hello :D

8013013D "A connection error has occurred" - May be to do with the SSID of the Router or signal strength if the conneciton drops Putting the PS3 into DMZ may help - otherwise check WPA key PS3 can't handle WPA2 only WPA or none

Was the webkey for my ps3 and how much is a


There is no "webkey" for a Ps3, I have a slimline 250gb and there is no key that you need to know about. If anything you have a playstation network login with a password that you set yourself or when you set up a wireless connection you need your WPA or WPA2 password for the connection so that you can use your in home WiFi.

a decent router to buy are Linksys, Belkin, and Netgear. I have a Netgear or a Belkin and its just a average house wifi network router that cost me about $50 at Bestbuy.

If connect it just follow the directions and use the windows network wizard to setup a wifi network. just be sure to remember your password for your wifi!!

When its time to connect your Ps3 just go to settings>Network settings (very bottom) > then I think its Internet connection settings> Easy>Wired or Wireless> Scan> select the right one>name it or dont> put in the password> make sure everything is correct> test it> Then if your test succeeds you'll be ready to go!

I have a 180 gb ps3 & i am trying to hook internet up to it using my wireless router, it's picking up fine but it keeps asking for a WPA key & i have no idea what that is?


wpa key is the security code on the router .........whoever set the router up will be able to give you that code (parents/roomate or whatever) if it is your own router you can log into the router and turn the security off or reset the WPA key ....if you have any other questions let me know

Cant connect to my wireless router on my ps3


I would first remove the Security off the router completely and then make sure the PS3 cvsan connect without any security - IF it connects OK, then at least you know the wireless works all OK Next, add the security back on, The PS3 does not support WPA2 just in case you are using that - you should use WPA AES or WPA TKIP for now. It may also be a conflict with other wireless signals - like cordless phones, although, I would suspect that effects all devices - But it maybe worth changing the wireless cahnnel used in the router - to avoid interference download and run this program on a PC http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php Then run the program - If you get an error - You need [URL="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en"]NET Framework[/URL] installed for the WiFi Inspector to function. Look at the wireless signals in your area and what channel they are using and the strength of the signal - where possible try to use channel 1 or 6 or 11, as they do not overlap other channels If still an issue please comment back, and i will look into further

Ps3 error code 80711008 and wpa


OK for your WPA you can check the security key by accessing the router http://192.168.1.1 .. password is by default "admin" and username is blank...go to the "wireless" tab and check the ssid...under "wireless security" check the security key...if you have "wep" check the numbers in "key 1"....
now make sure that you connect to your own ssid and type the correct key...
and you are right , you need wlan to connect to the internet wirelessly...however , first make sure that you have internet working through the router..if not you will have to configure the router and for that you a computer connected to the router...

As for your IP address simple use this site http://www.ip-adress.com/ should be everything you need

What is a WPA for an xbox 360 wireless networking adaptor


To connect your console to a wireless network Turn on your console and any wireless networking devices (such as a router or an access point).Attach the wireless networking adapter to the back of your console.Go to the System area of the Xbox Dashboard to enter your network settings.If all settings are correct, exit the System area. Your console should now be connected to your wireless network. Your WPA is your wireless security for your network. When you secured your network it asked you for your WPA key. Thats what you need to use. I hope you wrote it down somewhere. If not you'll have to log into your router and just change it to something new. If you do that make sure to right it down some where safe.
