Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
In order to determine your WPA/WPA2 settings you will most likely need to access your home network's router menu. Unless you're confident in doing this yourself, I would strongly suggest contacting your internet service provider (ISP) first for technical support or step-by-step guidance over the phone. Any changes that are made while accessing your router's main menu may directly impact your connection, and can even potentially cause problems with your existing network.
If you feel this shouldn't be a problem, the first step will be to sign onto a computer that is already connected to your secure home network. Once you're on the computer, you'll want to launch an internet browser and visit the default website for the router itself. This typically will be one of the following, but may vary depending on the make and model of your router:
If you're not sure which default website to visit, you'll need to refer to your owner's manual documentation for the specific address. When you've found the correct website you may be prompted for a user name and password. Again, these are typically found in the owner's manual documentation for most routers, but if you had your home network set up by a third party (like your ISP) it may be in the material that you were provided at the time of installation.
After you've entered the correct user name and password, you should be able to access the router's main menu. In the main menu, WPA/WPA2 settings may often be found by clicking on the "Wireless" or "Wireless Security" options. Again, where these are located will vary from model to model. You will need to write down the WPA/WPA2 key exactly as it is presented in this menu, and then enter it into your PS3's network settings in order to access the internet.
Additionally, please keep in mind that other factors may apply that could prevent your PS3 from accessing your home network, such as MAC filters.
If you're still unsure how to proceed, you may wish to contact your ISP or a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.
Hope this helps you out.
