WEP or WPA are the abbreviations of Wired Equivalent Privacy and Wi-Fi Protected Aaccess. These are similar to password to access to people wireless network. You should have one if you've got internet and wireless network in your house. You can paid T-mobil for Wi-Fi fee ($20.-/mo) and they will give you thru' your T-mobil phone, and you can use your PSP with new WEP or WPA at any WI-FI spots like Starbuck, Barn & Noble....

I hope it heps.

Try power-cycling the router (unplug and plug back in). Make sure wifi is enabled on psp (green light @ bottom left, toggle switch is on bottom left of psp). Also, when typing in encryption key, make sure the encryption protocol settings on the psp are the same as what your psp is broadcasting. So if your router is broadcasting WPA/WPA2 encryption, make sure psp is set to that.
Hope this helps.

Cant connect to the internet


You did not elaborate further why you cannot connect you PSP to internet. But I will assume that you have a wireless connection within reach and that your PSP Wi-Fi switch is turned on (switch on the right).
1.) If your wireless network requires a Network Key (WEP or WPA), you need to know the exact key to be able to connect to it. 2.) To connect to internet, open Internet Browser in your PSP and this will prompt you to connect to a Wireless network. 3.) To set-up, press the 'scroll right' button (>) until you reach the "Network Key". Choose the type of key your network is using (WEP, WPA or other) then press 'scroll right' (>) again until you reach the last menu. 4.) If you do not encounter any error, you can start browsing. If you still do, you may have to leave the specific errors or further details of your problem for us to assess...
P.S. My favorite is God of War (I hope you have tried playing it)...

When i connect i get this message' your wpa key you entered may not be correct"


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.

Im trying to download games for my psp but i need the wep key


If you are trying to use someone's wireless Internet access point and don't have their password key, whether they're using WEP or WPA security, you will not be able to connect successfully and go online.

The Wep key is bassically the password to get online.To get the wep key follow my instructions

1. Connect your computer to one of the ports at the back of your router with a DSL cable.

2.Open a web browser and type "http://192.168.1.1/" in the address bar. This will bring up your administration page for your router.

3.Log in by leaving the username blank and use "Admin" for the password. These are the username and password you use if you haven't already set something up previously.
4.Click on the "Wireless" tab at the top of the screen, and then on the "wireless security" tab.
5.Look for the WEP key listed. There might be a few of them, usually three. Use the first one listed. It will be a combination of numbers and letters.

What is a wep key on psp


a wep key is the security code for ur wireless network, If you have never altered it then it would be the default code... normally this is found on the reverse or underside of the wireless router. There is no wep key actually on the psp.
If no wep key or wireless security key is found on the router, check with your internet service provider.

PSP Says WEP Key is Incorrect, But That's Untrue


It was a WPA key, not a WEP key. As there were no choices for WPA encryption in the encryption part of the connection process, I think I need to update my PSP using a USB cable.

I want to know what my wpa key is what do I go on to find that out because I want to get on internet on my psp 3000


look in the manual of your wireless router. It will tell you in there the address to type into the browser of your PC.

Once you type in that address you can access your wireless routers settings and in there you can find out your wpa key to use on your PSP.

Hi!

WEP consists of 10 number and letters and is usually under your Wi-Fi (wireless) router...enter that code into ur PSP and it will grant u access to the internet.

Or type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1(which ever your router has set to access it) into your web browser and your loginour password is usually admin and Password is usually blank (as in don't type anything in it) for your router will pop up from there you can find your wep key or you can turn the wep off so your psp will not need a wep key.

Please rate this solution.

Thanks

Psp internet HELP


The WPA key for a PSP is the same as the WPA key for any device you may have connected to your wireless router, e.g. a laptop. If you know the key to your router, then that is the same as the WPA key for your PSP. If it is not a secured password protected router, or if it is using another encryption algorithm, then use "no security" or "WEP" for your PSP's security settings.
