The link below will help you look up the WAP key on your router. Note the steps are for the WEP key but the info is in the same area.

I got a new router and wanted to connect to internet on my PS3 but I can't change the WPA...


It is always better to leave the original WPA as it is random and is on a sticker on the router itself. See the link regarding changing the WPA on PS3.

PS3 but can change the WPA Google Search

especially note the 8 character minimum on PS3.

PS3 will not accept WPA2 PSK AES password

Hooking up wireless on ps3 and when I put the wpa key in it doesn't work what is the wpa key


This key code is found on your router.
It is the wireless security code.

You need to go to your router manufacture website and get information on how to get to your routers homepage via windows.

Once at the routers homepage find your wep or wpa key and enter it into your ps3.

I cannot find my wpa code fore my ps3.. i have a ubee router.. what number do i type in?


If your PS3 is asking for a WEP/WPA key, you need to input the password for your wireless internet. If you don't know what it is, you'll need to hold down the reset button on your router for 30 seconds, and this will reset your router to manufacturer status. You'll then need to find the documentation or the website of your router's manufacture to find out the default code on your router to configure it properly.

My ps3 is saying my WPA key I entered is incorrect and is saying that obtaining my IP address failed and I just used my WPA key to get the internet on my computer and laptop, How do I get online working...


DO a power cycle on your router and try it after that.
Unplug the power supply on the back of your router wait 60 seconds and plug it back in. Wait 30 seconds then try to connect from your PS3

Need wpa key to set up internet with my ps3 but dont know wat that is?


WPA is a Wireless Internet Authentication technology. It is setup through your home wireless router. If you have home wireless internet, you should know your WPA or WEP key. However, you dont have Wireless, you might just want to run a network cable from your router to the Playstation.

I have a 180 gb ps3 & i am trying to hook internet up to it using my wireless router, it's picking up fine but it keeps asking for a WPA key & i have no idea what that is?


wpa key is the security code on the router .........whoever set the router up will be able to give you that code (parents/roomate or whatever) if it is your own router you can log into the router and turn the security off or reset the WPA key ....if you have any other questions let me know

Lost wpa key


WPA is a security measure on your wireless router. It sounds like all you need to do is input your router password into the Internet settings on your PS3.

Ps3 error code 80711008 and wpa


OK for your WPA you can check the security key by accessing the router http://192.168.1.1 .. password is by default "admin" and username is blank...go to the "wireless" tab and check the ssid...under "wireless security" check the security key...if you have "wep" check the numbers in "key 1"....
now make sure that you connect to your own ssid and type the correct key...
and you are right , you need wlan to connect to the internet wirelessly...however , first make sure that you have internet working through the router..if not you will have to configure the router and for that you a computer connected to the router...

As for your IP address simple use this site http://www.ip-adress.com/ should be everything you need
