I have tried to set my playstation 3 online keeps asking for wep key what is this and were do i find it


Your PS3 is most likely trying to join a WiFi (Wireless) network. Sometimes WiFi networks have passwords to keep people out. The PS3 is asking for a WEP key because it is asking for the password so it can join that WiFi network and get online. Try to find your WEP key for your router. If it is not your router then you will be unable to join that network since it is secured.

Trying to connect nintendo but i have no idea what the security code is


If you are trying to connect to a wireless connection with your nintendo system and are being asked for the security code you can do a few things to find it out. If you already have a computer hooked up to this internet connection (wirelessly or wired) then open up a brower on that computer. In the address bar at the top (where you type "www.") type in 192.168.1.1 and it should prompt you for a username and password. The default for these are both "admin". Once you clear the security you should be taken to an internet settings screen. Search for the tab that says "WEP key" and click it. The WEP key is your internet security code. If there are multiple WEP keys, any of the options will work. Type in one of the options when prompted for the security code on your nintendo console and you should be good to go! If this doesn't work, you should contact either nintendo for help or your internet service provider for the security code. Let me know if you need anything else!

How to hook up the internet


Turn on the Nintendo DSi then Click on the wrench icon to access "System Settings." Select "Internet" on the third page of System Settings. Select "Connection Settings" and tap the "None" bar in "Connection 1." You have the option of setting up a connection manually, or searching for available connections in the area. The easiest thing to do is select "Search for an Access Point." Your Nintendo DSi will list the names of any wireless access points in range. A gold, unlocked icon next to the connection's name signifies an unlocked WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) connection that can be accessed immediately. A locked gold icon signifies an encrypted WEP connection that requires a WEP key (password).
If you are accessing a locked/encrypted connection, enter your WEP key. You may also click "Change Security Settings" to enter a WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key. If your WEP key is correct, your Nintendo DSi should connect. You can test your connection to verify. You're set! Now you can surf the Internet, purchase games and add-ons in the Nintendo DSi Shop, and play games that allow wireless access and competition (with WEP connections, only).
Note Most Nintendo DS and DSi owners can get online by searching for an access point, but some might have to resort to manual setup.The Nintendo DSi can go online with a WPA connection, but actually playing DSi games online requires a WEP connection.

Keep having to enter the wep key to start ps3 then it times out saying the key is incorrect ? Recently changed from AOL to BT and console was working fine but now no service


Can I just ask, are you entering your AOL WEP key or your new BT WEP key? Just in case you didnt know your BT router will have its WEP key on a sticker on the back of the router. You need to go into network settings --> internet settings and change the WEP key that is registered to the system. It should then connect with no problem.

Hope this helps.

Hpj4680 will not print after adding wep pw


Cant you use WPA2, wep is very weak and should never be used if you have the option to use WPA.
If you have used WPA2 security ( you choose the password )
and the printer is asking for a wep key ( the router generates a long key , you dont choose it).
That will be the reason you can't connect, if the printer cant be changed to WPA, you only have the option to log on to the router and change security to WEP, which i would not recommend

Your WEP key is set by a user of the household you would have to go in to your personal router page where you can change ports etc. and reset it to whatever you want.

Every time i try to set up wifi, it asks for a wep key.


The WEP key is a security key used by your wireless internet device (usually a router). Do you know who set up your wireless internet? If so they should be able to provide you with the WEP key.

Trying to connect lap top


The WEP key is something you designate on your own router. IF you are trying to get into someone else's router you need to ask them for permission to have their WEP key. Otherwise you cant get in. If you forget your WEP key you can do a hard reset on the router to clear out the key.
