WEP and WPA are the only types of Wireless Security supported on the PSP. If you have WEP2 or anything else on your wireless network, the PSP will not support it. You can change your wireless router's security to WEP if you want the PSP to connect to it.

Check the following page at Sony for more information:

http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/?a_id=24

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) are security encryption protocols to provide secure wireless (Wi-Fi). These are common on most wireless access points available. You will need to contact the manufacturer of your wireless access point to determine which will work best for you when setting up your wireless network. Both of these protocols are supported by the PSP system and you will need to choose which protocol your wireless network has been configured with in order for the PSP to connect to your network.

Sir

Checking or verifying the wireless settings of your Linksys Cable Gateway is important when connecting wireless devices to your network. This is the best route to take if you are unsure of your gateway's wireless settings.
The wireless settings that you need to take note of are:
  • SSID
  • SSID Broadcast
  • Wireless Security
To check the wireless settings on the Linksys gateway follow the steps below:
Step 1:
Access the gateway's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here. If you are using a Maccomputer to access the cable gateway's web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
Click the Wireless tab.

Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID). It is recommended to change the SSID to something unique.


2479d228-df03-4dad-b49e-d0853affbc66.png

Step 4:
Click the Wireless Security sub-tab and take note of the current Wireless Encryption Level and the Wireless SSID Broadcast if it is set to Enable or Disable.


cbadfb12-af13-4b26-b67d-c33f9c0a78ce.png

If Wireless Encryption Level is set to No Encryption, this means that the wireless security on the gateway is disabled.
If Wireless Encryption Level is set to 64 Bit Encryption or 128 Bit Encryption, check the value under Default Key and take note of the Wireless WEP Key that corresponds to it.

How to secure the router


  • First of all you need to change the default password and put your own password.

  • Many routers today will offer two different security schemes: WEP and WPA. We recommend WPA security, since it is more secure than WEP.
  • The SSID is the name that identifies your wireless router. By default, many routers will use the name of the router as the default SSID, for example, Linksys routers will often use 'Linksys' as the SSID. This is a security risk since it identifies the brand of the router and would let any attacker immediately know what exploits to use.

  • If firewall is available then enable it.
  • Disable SSID broadcast
  • Enable the wireless MAC filter.The Wireless MAC filter feature will only allow a wireless device to connect to your router if the MAC Address has been entered into the filter list.

Hi,

The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies a 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. The SSID is a key which is set by the wireless network administrator. You must know the SSID to connect to a 802.11 wireless network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing/scanning. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.

SSID access points continuously broadcast radio signals which are received by client machines if enabled. Based on the automatic or manual configuration, the client can connect to the access point. A SSID is generally 32 bit long, but when displayed to the user, it is projected into a human readable ASCII format. Multiple access points can possibly share same SSID if they are for the same wireless network. Many wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, permitting the formation of Virtual Access Points. Such Virtual Access Points partition a single physical access point into many logical access points, each of which can have a special set of security and network settings.
SSID Security Issues

Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.

ssid example SSID
Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".

Every time a client connects to the wireless network, the SSID is communicated in plain text format, which can easily be sniffed by eavesdropper using sniffing applications like Kismet. Hence, additional security techniques are required to be implemented in order to enhance the wireless security.

I put in the wep key put it doesnt let me in wifi and what is ssid how do i put wifi manualy


The Nintendo DS only supports certain types of Wireless Security, the Nintendo site specifies what version DS supports what versions of Wifi Security

An SSID is the name of your wireless network, so it's what you see when you try to connect to a wireless network at your home

to put in Wifi manually you have to put in the SSID, Wireless password, and depending on if your router is set up as manual or automatic, you may have to put in your IP Address and Subnet mask and finally you need to put in a primary DNS server, your primary DNS server IP Address is the IP Address of your router.

I AM NOT SEEING THE ROUTER THAT I WANT TO CONNECT TO BUT I AM SEEING OTHERS


So this is wireless? Log in to your router with a wired connection and check if its SSID is being broadcast. If it is not, you can still connect but you need to know what the SSID is and configure your computer with that information. Often the SSID is not broadcast, as a form of security - "security through obscurity". If no one can see it, they are unlikely to try and connect to it.

You didn't give any information about the type of router so I have to make some guesses - if SSID broadcast is on, then check that it is supporting the type of wireless you are using to connect to it. For example, is it supporting A/B/G and you are trying to use Wireless-N to connect?

How do i make a password on my wifi conection..my router is linksys BEFW11S4 v.2


First, your router is old, go pickup a new one that supports the G standard, don't worry it will fall back to B standard or better yet get an N standard router. To setup wireless security directly connect a pc via cat5 data cable to one of the switch ports on the router (not the wan) and login to the web innerface, click the wireless tab, now look for the security or encrypted options. Most routers support WPA-2 encryption where you enter a phrase of 2 or 3 words if your router only supports web encryption go buy a new router. Save it, then go to your pc, disconnect, remove the wifi ssid from your managed wireless list refresh and search for the ssid of your wireless signal (name), now connect and the router should challenge you for your WPA pass phrase you setup in the router. Now your wifi ssid is secure and all connections will require the passphrase.

Have been using router but it is not encrypted. How do I find my user name. June byard 2607 S. Main St. Penticton Bc v2a 5j4 jbyard@shaw.ca


Do this:
WRT54G
Before you begin, please try to configure the WRT54G from a hardwired PC for simplicity. Whenever security is changed you’ll need to change the settings on all wireless units so it’s a good rule of thumb to do security changes from a hardwired PC if possible.
Accessing the Router
1. Go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP)
2. When "Internet Explorer" opens type the routers IP address into the "Address" bar and hit the [Enter] key (The Wireless routers default IP address is http://192.168.1.1)
3. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear.
4. Skip user name and type in your password (admin is the default password), and click OK
Setup Page Security Options
When you arrive at the Setup page, you'll see the bulk of your wireless security features. There are three things you're going to want to set on this page:
1. SSID
a) Delete linksys from the "SSID" field
b) Input your own unique SSID. We general recommend something easy to remember, but secure enough to where people would not be able to guess it easily. Sometimes your best bet is to use your last name and add some numbers, in this example we’re using linksys12345678910.
c) Click Apply then Continue
2. SSID Broadcast
SSID broadcasts allows other 802.11b and 802.11g users to see your Access Points SSID, by disabling this option is similar to closing your binds and not letting people see through. If you have Windows XP computer(s), do this step last.
a) Select Disable on the “SSID Broadcast”.
b) Click Apply then Continue
3. WEP
a) Set “Wireless Security” to Enable.
b) Click the Edit Security Settings button.
c) A window will appear prompting you “Do you want to enable the Security Encryption?” click OK.
d) When the "Security Settings" Window appears, set the “Security Mode” to WEP*. Then set the “WEP Encryption” to the 128 bits 26 hex digits option.
NOTE: 128 bit WEP may not work on non-Linksys products due to its lack of an IEEE standard
e) Enter a passphrase** that is different from the SSID. Try to make it alphanumeric; instead of just security, use security12345, then click the Generate button.
f) After the key has been generated copy the key into a notepad document and copy that file onto a floppy.
*NOTE: There are other security options, which the WRT54G uses, however, not all wireless adapter currently support security implementations such WPA and 802.1x. Most wireless adapters support either 64-bit WEP or 128-bit WEP, so Linksys recommends using WEP unless you know that all of your wireless adapters support WPA.
**NOTE: The passphrase will not work with non-Linksys products, so you will need to use the 1st key that you copied onto floppy. You will also need the key, not the passphrase for using Linksys products under Windows XP

g) Click Apply then Continue
h) Close the window

Hello, the same place you changed the SSID has a number of different options including username and password. You can also set you Security(WEP or WPA). Also turn on or off the firewall, if it supports one. If you didn't change the address it should be 192.168.1.1 Default password and username is usually "admin" for both or just password. Hope this helps.
