Re: trying to set ps3 on line it is asking for wep
the wep key is the password you setup for internet access on your router/modem. It is used to protect your home LAN, so let's say it is the same password you have to insert when you access to the internet with your pc/laptop.
If you didn't setup it by yourself you should then ask to whom is taking care of it at home.
If you need more info please ask.

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.
Type this address into your computers browser 192.168.2.1 from there you can access your routers settings.The wep key will be under security.Once you get the key you can input it on your ps3.If you do not have a wep key make one.Most gaming systems etc won't connect to a unprotected connection.
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.
your wep key should be on the equiptment like the router on the bottom if not, make a new wep key if u have a pc go in to the settings of the router enable wireless and add ur own wep key or is the wep already on a pc and ur connecting to it from ur console then input manualy i dont know if wireless is anygood for a ps but try wired see if that is more helpfull
Hi, Make sure you are trying to access the right WEP type. I'm using a WPA2, should give you the option
Make sure in the settings and connection list that your address
settings are set to automatic. I found that manually setting my
internet connection settings so I could put the UPnP as disabled helped
or just type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into your web browser and your
login for your router will pop up from there you can turn off your wep
so it doesn't need a pass.
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.
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
