    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

Im trying to change my wep key but its not reconising the old wep key code


to change the WEP key on the router , you will need to access the router set up.
For this you will need 1 computer online through the router.
You will need to connect the computer to the router with the ethernet cable.

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!

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.
