WPA is a Wireless Internet Authentication technology. It is setup through your home wireless router. If you have home wireless internet, you should know your WPA or WEP key. However, you dont have Wireless, you might just want to run a network cable from your router to the Playstation.

What is a wap/key for the playstation 3


The WPA key (WEP or WPA-PAK are the options you get when setting up) is a method of securing wireless networks. The key in simple term means the password. This setting is not dependent on your PS3 but rather your WIRELESS ROUTER. If you do not use a wireless router then this setting does not apply to you.


You will need to log into your router settings. Using a PC, connect directly to the router and enter the routers IP address in a internet browser. (I type in http://192.168.1.1/ in the address bar of my browser on my pc to connect to my Linksys router.) LAN-IP address is normally set to a default, private number. Linksys routers (which is what i use at home) for example use 192.168.1.1 for their internal IP address. D-link and Netgear routers typically use 192.168.0.1 some US Robotics use 192.168.123.254 and so on. But you should be able to find what your router ip address is by going to their website or looking in your users manual.
i'm able to find my WAP key under the "router access" in the sub menu of "administration tab" its all ******** out like any other protected fields but i know what mine is and is able to change it there.
In the security settings there should be a WPA key setting. If this is blank then your wireless internet is unprotected. If this is set, then you will need to enter the corresponding key into your PS3 to obtain access to the network.
if you know who set up your wireless network for your home you can ask them for the WEP or WPA key. in simple term that is just a password that they use to set up your WEP or WPA

Hello, i am having problems connecting to the internet with my Ps3. i select easy at network setting, then i select my routers SSID name, after that i type in the WPA key. but then it tries to connect...


Probably its a problem between the router keys and playstation's. Try to reset the router and let it with no password (just for a moment, dont worry hehe). Now try to connect. If it works, try to replace the security for WEP. should work.

Good luck

Trying to get my playstation 3 online but it asking for WPA KEY. I dont know what it is.


This key is the security phrase (or characters) that you have to write down in order to connect the playstation with the Wireless Network (Wi-Fi) at the place you are. Either you can ask for this WPA KEY the from the person that set up the Wi-Fi or you can use a pc already connected at this router in order to go to the router's settings page / Wi-Fi / security and read the WPA KEY by yourself.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Says need to update encryrtion key


Hi there,

It sounds like you changed the password for your router's WEP or WPA security key. You need to go into the Network Settings on your PS3 and set up a new internet connection. Once you do that it will ask you for your new WPA or WEP security key.
Hope this helps.

wpa key is the security code on the router .........whoever set the router up will be able to give you that code (parents/roomate or whatever) if it is your own router you can log into the router and turn the security off or reset the WPA key ....if you have any other questions let me know

Lost wpa key


WPA is a security measure on your wireless router. It sounds like all you need to do is input your router password into the Internet settings on your PS3.
