HI there - Are you using windows to configure the connection?? I always suggest that you do becasue I find other 3rd party software isnt always as good / easy to use.

try going into your wireless settings

Start >> Connect To >> Show all connections >> Right click on Wireless network connection >> Click Wireless Networks tab

Ensure that "Use windows to configure my wireless network settings" is checked.

We cannot sign on to the playstation. we are getting error message 80710092


If the PS3 can sign on when directly connected to the modem, there may be an issue with the router or just settings on your playstation. Make sure that in the PS3 under network settings you have enabled the connection you are using. If it is a wireless connection make sure you have copied the setting on your router and computer. You may have security enabled. Test if you can browse using its built in browser. If it can but would not sign in, check the setting of your account. It may just be an incorrect user name or password.

Go into your router configuration.

Take off all security so that anyone can join your network.

Set up your USB wireless and, once working, put the security password back on.

The security type on the router is WEP.
In this case you will need to use the key 1. that will be the network key for your wireless network.
Check just next to the wireless security tab , you will see wireless MAC filter. It must be disabled. If it is Enabled then disable it and save the settings.
When you try to connect using the WEP key 1 , do you get any error message ?
If you get any error then try $ sign and wep key1.
