The wep key is the passcode to you router. when you set up the router it asked for a key. try to type in your computer browser 192.168.1.1 and you can reset your key

WHERE DO I FIND MY WEP KEY? I AM TRYING TO CONNECT MY PS3 TO THE INTERNET


WEP key is also known as your Wireless password. It is located in your Router Configuration settings. Access the default gateway of your Belkin Router and go to Wireless Settings. Look for WEP and it will provide you the WEP password to connect your PS3.

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.

MY PS3 WILL NOT CONNECT TO MY WIRELESS ROUTER DLINK 615, everythink else does.


This will connect for the following reasons:

1. Check if the wireless security key is correct.
2. The wireless security key is at times case sensitive.
3. Try and connect to your own wireless network
4. Finally, check with other wireless devices at your place, if they are connecting.
5. If the security is high, lower down the wireless security type to 64-bit WEP

For verifying all this, contact your router vendor.

Thanks for asking.

Where is the wep key located on my virgin router


Connect your desktop computer to your Belkin router, and access the router's built-in web-server software. Then, run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure the router's wireless networking capabilities. As part of that process, you will be required to _create_ a "WEP-key" value. Use that value when configuring the wireless capability of your PS3.

PS3 WEP Key Problems


if its asking for a WEP key then your wireless network is a secured one..you will need to put the same key as you had originally used while setting your wireless network..are you able to connect to the wireless from a laptop?
see the message that comes on your ps3 when you scan for available networks..you will know if your wireless has security..
you can chnage the security of your wireless by logging oto it by typing 192.168.1.1 in the laptop browser and then configure/change security settings..hope it helps..

Wep key for ps3


you will need to obtain your wep key no matter what...you can get it from whoever your router company is (if it is a linksys then call the linksys support number and obtain the key) in most cases thought the wep key is located on the router itself near the bar code. It will be a long number, When you get it and enter it in to the network settings then it should pick up the signal

How do I findmy wep key?


Hello ffoeg66off, My friend has the same make of router, If you can't find your wep key, are you sure it has one, not all routers have them, mine does, but my friend doesn't. If your Nintendo DS askes for a wep key like mine did, try to find a long conbination of letters and numbers, if it doesn't, you dont need one!

Ps3 issues


ok so for the ps3 you should select the option to scan for your wireless network instead of manually configuring it. if it asks for your wep key, you could find it under your modem. just look for the 10 digit key inside the brackets
