Hi im mr-monty and i have had a ps3 for about 4 month and i used my wireless first to play online and then i used the ethernet cable so it worked.so after that i went to go bak to use the wifi so i put in my wep key and it comes up with the charicters you have enter are invalid for hexadecimaluse 10 to 26 of 0-9 and a-f and A-F ascii 5 to10
Okay do this.
1. turn on the ps3
2. go to the system option
3. check if your ps3 is connected to a wireless connection
4. If so log in using your account if it doesn't work
5. I recommend sign up for a new account and try that.

If you are connecting through a standard ethernet cable you should not be getting this question. However, if you are trying to connect through wifi it is best to check your router/hub to make sure there is no preset factory wep or wpa key
If your using an ethernet cable ran to the back of the ps3 then goto network settings and choose automatic configuration and it should find everything for you.
if your using wireless you can choose manual config and choose wireless and scan for your wireless router. If the router doesnt use encryption just keep hitting the right arrow on dpad to choose all the default options and it should work. if your using wep or some kind of encryption then just enter that key when the encryption under the "Use Encryption" option and then just choose the rest as default options.
network settings is under SETTINGS ---> NETWORK SETTINGS
Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).
If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.
Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.
I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!
restore your default settings. check your security key and you shoudl be good to go. it's nothing with your ps3 and probably just something with yoru router. also try restoring the default settings and just connecting directly to your router or your modem with an ethernet cable
i had same problem with my ps3, but i also had a landline connection so i used that instead but as far as i know there are products available which can send out a signal wirelessly but i think orange want an additional fee for online gaming. bt wanted an extre 9.99 per month for me to use thier broadband for gaming so i canged to virgin media and i havent had a problem since
The wep key is what you use when setting up your wireless router, if you have forgotten what this is, you can reset the router by holding down the button at the back. If you haven't set up a wep key you can select none, or see if you can find it out from your computer/laptop.
Go and speak with the front desk. And ask if there is a WEP key password for their wireless network. You may have to pay-to-play. But once you get the WEP key. Scan for a connection...choose your hotel's. Set everything to automatic...and input the provided WEP key. Should work fine.
First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings
Windows XP 1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections 2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath 3. Click Support 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Windows Vista 1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center 2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection 4. Click Details 5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.
Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
