You have to act like you are doing a new connection and choose your SSID and then enter the correct WEP.

Ps3 says ip address timed out / wep key was entered incorrect.


Have you tried manually adding a IP to your PS3 ie if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.254 set your PS3 to 192.168.1.60, with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and set the gateway to the IP address of your router in this example it would be 192.168.1.254..

Wont connect to wi fi; I am putting in the correct ssid and correct wep, but it tells me "the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out. The wep key you entered may not be correct." But the WEP is...


This used to happen to me alot when connection was bad due to distance form the router. If your router is far away, find a way to move it closer. Reset the connection settings on the PS3 and do automatic search then just enter the WEP again

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! ;) )

Trying to get wireless connection.everything is good until i test connection.then it says....a connection error has occurred.the attempt to obtain the ip address timed out...What do i do now????


make sure that first you have your own internet! If you do then make sure you set the your new connection to WEP setting! this allows you to put in the neccesary code to access your wireless internet! then make sure you know your code and enter it in after you set the securtiy! if you have your wireless internet set with security then you either have to know the code to access it or set it off so it doesnt block anyone from access! allowing you to use None in the WLAN security setting!


So my main point you are trying to access someone else's internet??? so if its a store then ask them for the code and set WLAN securtiy setting to WEP and put the password after its selected!!! Friends internet ask for WEP code and then samething!, or someelses internet who has a security block so people dont steal internet! gotcha

My ps3 says time up on obtaining ip address


Hi,
Make sure you are trying to access the right WEP type. I'm using a WPA2, should give you the option

Make sure in the settings and connection list that your address settings are set to automatic. I found that manually setting my internet connection settings so I could put the UPnP as disabled helped me.

or just type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into your web browser and your login for your router will pop up from there you can turn off your wep so it doesn't need a pass.

Thanks.

You can always press the reset button and wipe all settings out. You will have to re-enter passwords and encryption to protect your network.

You need to connect the ps3 to the wireless router you use the same ssid on all devices that connect into the router. I think thats where your settings are wrong.

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
