    I am having the same problem, I enter my 11 character WEP key and it only acknowledges the first 8 characters.  The PS3 is really starting to get on my last nerve.  Wait until you completely lose sound on all your games and have to do a full system restore.

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.

    okay heres how to find your WEP key go to internet browser and go to the address bar and type in 192.168.1 it should bring you to a web page, and it all depends on the look of the webpage, and different routers have different webpages. Look for the WEP key, it should be under network or look at connection or even Wireless.

Well, I'm gonna have a PS3 soon and a sky broadband like two days later but I don't know if it will work, D= I know the PS3 will but I'm scared if the PS3 online won't.

I had the same problem, what I ended up doing to fix the issue was to go into my router settings and change my WEP encryption to 64 bit instead of 128 bit.

Im trying to set up my playstaion 3 to play online, it is asking me for a WEP key or a WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK key and i haven't got one on my home hub.


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

Just purchased a PS3, along with Call of Duty 6, but I am having difficulty determining how to access the internet, which I have been told would allow me to play others on line.


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

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


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!

Ps3 online


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.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

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
