Connect your computer to your router using an Ethernet cable. Turn off your wireless card so your computer will use the Ethernet connection. Now go into Network & Sharing Center and click on "Change Adapter Settings." Now right-click on your Ethernet/LAN connection and click on "Status." A window will pop up showing that you are connected and will display other information. Click the "Details" button and look through the list until you find an IP address under "Default Router" or "Default Gateway." (The most common IP address for routers is Go into your web browser and enter the IP address you find beside Default Router/Gateway. A page will come up showing the brand name of your router and a login page. If you don't know the username/password, you can search online to find the default username and password for your router. After you enter the username/password, you can go into your settings and add a WPA key to your router. A page will come up asking you to enter a passphrase to use for your password. Choose one that is somewhat long and very hard to guess (try using a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols). Once you set your password, you will have to enter that password for every wireless device you use to connect to your router. It helps to write your password down on a sticky note and placing it under your router so you can easily find the password when you need it.

Trying to get my playstation 3 online but it asking for WPA KEY. I dont know what it is.

This key is the security phrase (or characters) that you have to write down in order to connect the playstation with the Wireless Network (Wi-Fi) at the place you are. Either you can ask for this WPA KEY the from the person that set up the Wi-Fi or you can use a pc already connected at this router in order to go to the router's settings page / Wi-Fi / security and read the WPA KEY by yourself.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

You can get those passphrase's or key generated codes by going into the routers administration web page. Not sure which router you have but the typical address is either or Open up your browser and type these one at a time into your URL address bar. Once you get into the web page you should find a tab that says Security Settings or something similar. There you will find the WPA passphrase and the key codes needed to connect your printer to the network. I have found the key codes are needed for WPA setups. Hope this helps

WPA code

use the ip address of the router which by default ( generally speaking ) if you are connected to the router via an ethernet cable will be the ip address for the default gateway.

Login to the router and go to the wireless configuration section(s) and it should state in there what the wpa code / password phrase is
