      Angry Cannot connect online with PS3

      Hello

      I have tried what i believe to be everything in order to try and get my PS3 online, but it just won't work.

      When i do a scan the PS3 picks up the router, however when i try and connect it wont work

      I have tried putting in my WPA key hundreds of times it wont work, also tried the WEP and that wont work.

      I am trying to do this wirelessly with a sagem router.

      Any thoughts? Should i just get a cable?

      Thanks

      Change the channel on the router from AUTO to another channel. If that's already done, then confirm what security option is on the router and confirm the network key listed there. Make sure you're entering the WPA key in capital letters, also.

      Change the SSID to something else if the above fails.

      Edit: I assume you know how to get to the router status page having said you'd tried WEP encryption, but just in case you're not sure:

      Open a browser, type 192.168.0.1 into the address bar
      User : pass - admin:sky
      Login and click setup in the top left

      Change the channel first as I say if it's on AUTO, as that's more than likely the issue.

      have you tried in capital letters?

      also disable security on router then try to connect the ps3, see if that works, dont leave it like this too lon, just enough to test it

      Try changing the security key to one of your own. You should do this anyway, the default key is only meant for temporary use. 8 to 63 ASCII characters can be used.

      I think you will find that connecting by cable gives you a much better experience. Gaming by wireless can be very hit or miss.

      Have you had a look at this thread, not exactly your problem but it may help.

      Also have a look at this thread, which explains how to set up the router, the WEP security is at the end of the article.
