Cannot make a wireless connection from PlayStation 3 to the Internet

My son just purchased a PlayStation 3.  We cannot establish a wireless connection to the Internet.  After entering the 10-digit WEP key, the connection test fails with a message stating that the WEP key is invalid.  I have a PC and two laptops using the Internet without any problems.  All three are using a wireless connection with the same WEP key.  A wired connection is out of the question because the residential gateway router is located in the unfinished basement.

Thanks for the link.  Reading through it I found the solution to my problem.  I entered the WEP key as the WPA-PSK Key on the PS3 and was able to connect to the Internet successfully.

Re: Cannot make a wireless connection from PlayStation 3 to the Internet

I have been trying to get an internet connection for 3 days.  I've read that link and just about everything else searchable on this and several other forums.  I do not understand what I'm doing wrong.

 

I have entered the simple key that's on the tower into the WPA-PSK connection, and I've also tried changing the authentication settings on the tower to WEP (instead of WPA-PSK) and no luck with that either.

 

if anyone could help me out I'd be very grateful.
