WEP Key

7 replies 2 views Edited Nov 19, 2006
I am trying to connect my PS3 through the wireless internet I use... The only problem is that it needs a WEP code, and I do not have it. I do not have access to the installation disc or original packaging that came with the Netgear router... Is there anyway other way I could get the WEP key?

check a computer that's on your network go to start >> all programs >> accessories >> comand prompt

type in ipconfig

this will tell you your local ip...

should be something like 192.168.2.15

we're only interested in the first digits so, in this case we would look at ###.###.###.xxx

typing in in http://###.###.###.1 in your internet browser SHOULD log you into the router

most people don't change the router login so it should be admin and admin, but that could be anything

also, using what ido_alpha_omega said, the default gateway address is the ip of the router. easier than guessing, as i've seen router address end in 1, 256, 200, and 150.

You get the key by going to the routers configuration. I don't think stealing a neighbors connection would work too well btw.

If you haven't made many changes to the default router config, a netgear router IP is usually. 192.168.1.1 Simply type that into your web browser and it will bring you to the login for the router. You'll need to type in the router's username and password to login. With netgear, I believe it's username: netgear password: password but it could be different on yours. Anyway, once you're logged in you can go to the wireless config screen and view what your WEP key is. Just type that into your PS3 and have it auto connect. Mine worked on the first try and I also have a netgear. Since the initial setup I haven't had any problems connecting.

My Playstation Network ID is: K0NY (with a zero).
