You have to log in to your access point (Wireless device) to know what exactly is the WEP key.

If you are already using it to connect on your laptop running Win7, then there is a way to retrieve the key without logging in.

Kindly tell me which way you want to go for? You have already defined on laptop or is this the first time you are using the access point...

Also mention which Windows you are using on your laptop.

Error connection


You need at least a 60GB PS3. Go to settings, Network Settings. Internet Connection settings then select wireless. Search for your access point, input the WEP key then select automatic or easy for the other options.

How do I find a WEP key for the PS3


The WEP access key is created by the owner/installer of the WiFi account.

So, you would need approval from the hotel's owner/manager to access their WiFi - they can provide you with the key.

WHERE DO I FIND MY WEP KEY? I AM TRYING TO CONNECT MY PS3 TO THE INTERNET


WEP key is also known as your Wireless password. It is located in your Router Configuration settings. Access the default gateway of your Belkin Router and go to Wireless Settings. Look for WEP and it will provide you the WEP password to connect your PS3.

My WEP key changed and I need to enter the new one into the ps3 in order to get online. How do I do this?


Hello,

In order to get to the correct screen to enter your wireless security key follow the steps below,

Turn on your playstation and go to Network Settings under Settings in the main menu.
Select Internet Connections tab and then select Yes when it gives you a disconnect warning.
Select Easy on the next screen then select Wireless for your internet connection.
Select Scan to bring up all available access points and select your home wireless access point.
Select your security settings and enter in your WEP key. Save your settings.

Afterwards, it is always good to select test connection.

Keep having to enter the wep key to start ps3 then it times out saying the key is incorrect ? Recently changed from AOL to BT and console was working fine but now no service


Can I just ask, are you entering your AOL WEP key or your new BT WEP key? Just in case you didnt know your BT router will have its WEP key on a sticker on the back of the router. You need to go into network settings --> internet settings and change the WEP key that is registered to the system. It should then connect with no problem.

Hope this helps.

Trying to set ps3 on line it is asking for wep


Hello, 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. Good luck, Peter

I need a code called (WEP) and i cant find it on my computer. I need this code so i can play my ps3 again. Help fast!


You need to get the WEP key from the router that you are using to connect to the Internet. On the Setup or Security screen there will be a Network Key or Password. That is the code your PS3 is looking for. Once you enter it you should be able to then get on the Internet.

I dont know my wep key for my psp


If you are trying to connect to a wireless network using your PSP, what you need is the WEP for the wireless network.

If you are using a home wireless network you would need to ask the person who set the WEP key.

Or, you could go to the wireless router, and there should be a little reset place to push with a pin. Press it, hold it for twenty seconds or so, and then go onto a computer connected to the wireless router and enter in the MAC address that you should be able to find on the bottom of your router on a little sticker.or if that is not found, you can do a search on your wireless router's MAC address on the internet. Just do a search in Google or Bing or whatever for the wireless router model and look for the router's web address.

Enter that address (which should look like a xxx.xxx.x.x format) into the address bar on the Internet Browser. You will be taken to your router's webpage where you can change that information. You sign on as Admin, usually there is no need for a password after a hardware reset, and you should see a security setting option. Select the WEP or WPA setting and enter in your own key. Write it down, because if you have any other computers or devices connected to the wireless router they will all need to set their internet secuirty protocol to that new key or they will not be able to access the internet.

Go into your PSP Network settings and go through the options, enter in your new key, and bam! Your there. :)

Or you SHOULD be.

If you are in a new area, you will need to know their key or hope you are in a place with unrestricted access. :)

(If you didnt know, If you have a PS3 you can connect to it REMOTELY through your PSP if you register them together, and watch movies downloaded to your PS3, listen to music, look at your pictures, about everything but play games that you have on your PS3. From just about anywhere in the world that you have internet access through your PSP and your PS3 is connected. But that's a different matter! ;) )

I have a netgear wireless router, I also have a new PS3, I want to access the internet via the PS3 but have lost my WEP key for the router. Whats the easiest way of finding the WEP key Thanks Darren


wep key or router administrative password?
if you have router admin password, you just go to your router settings and reset, delete all WEP key setting
(i assume one that connect to your router is only the PS3)
The setting should be web-based.
connect a pc to your router using LAN/ethernet port.
Access the router (you should know the router
ip address) via IE ex: http://192.168.0.1/
Read your router manual for details.

Wep key for ps3


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
