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

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.

How do i connect to internet with ps3, wireless, what is a wpa key?


WPA stands for Wi-Fi protected access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.

While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:


You can correct this problem by entering the WPA Key into your PSP's Network Settings. But before you do that you need to know what your WPA Key is...


Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.


Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.


To reset a Linksys modem/router or Belkin one, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.


Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.


Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.


On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.


If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long.


For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBDm+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGIRVz4RdQ7V3yl$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.


Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.

All Blue Ray players need to be updated from time to time to keep up with the growing technology of Blue Ray. PS3 is the same way. It is asking you to update your PS3 in order to play the disc. On the back of the PS3 is a Ethernet port (looks like an over sized phone jack) connect this to your internet (modem) and it will update your encryption key and software needed to play Blue Ray discs. Here is a link for that as well.

First, make sure that DHCP is enabled.
Second, Don't use the pass phrase use the key.
  • For example, if you setup WEP to use a pass phrase like ROSEBUD, use the generated key code under it which would look something like AA34578E9...

Ps3 error code 80711008 and wpa


OK for your WPA you can check the security key by accessing the router http://192.168.1.1 .. password is by default "admin" and username is blank...go to the "wireless" tab and check the ssid...under "wireless security" check the security key...if you have "wep" check the numbers in "key 1"....
now make sure that you connect to your own ssid and type the correct key...
and you are right , you need wlan to connect to the internet wirelessly...however , first make sure that you have internet working through the router..if not you will have to configure the router and for that you a computer connected to the router...

As for your IP address simple use this site http://www.ip-adress.com/ should be everything you need

My PS3 is asking for a wpa key code so I can go online?


If you dont know your wpa network key try to reconfigure your wireless network again.

Access the configuration page of your router.
>Type on the address bar 192.168.0.1
>On login type Admin leave password blank. if you set up a password or the login page use that one.
>Once inside the Dlink Page
>Clik Setup and on the left side click wireless setting.
>If given the option to click on manaul wireless connection setup click on it.
>Once you have the wireles window
>try to change the network name to a new one and scroll down
>Under security choose WPA security (enhanced)
>Scroll down and under the Passphrase type in your new network password or security key and confirm it.
>Click on Save Settings
>If it asks you to reboot then reboot it, if not, its ok.
