Netgear, it came with a new package deal from our connection service and it's just WPA
Er.. what what default setting? >.<
Do you mean resetting the ADSL setting?
Oh and I have tried creating random keys, and it still came up with the same message. :Shame:
How much distance is between the router and PS3? If it's literally right next to it while you are setting it up try connecting again but have 2 feet + distance between the two?
what PS connection method are you using to find/connect to the SSID? Manual/Auto/Scan?
Is your router on the latest firmware ? (I had a Netgear that had old firmware which had a bug that meant only WEP encryption would work)
Have you got Access Control on ?
I am quite sure that it is the latest since it is the recomended netgear. ^-^
Doesn't mean that the firmware is updated to the latest =) I'm using a customized firmware from DGTeam (HERE)
Hello, I just noticed this thread and I am having the same problem... I recently changed to a Netgear modem and when I try and connect to it there is an error message at the bottom of the screen that says, "The key information exchange has timed out."
Oh and I am using Auto I.P. Address and Scanned my modem.
It's more that 2 feet... lol I actually measured it.
I used a scan since it is the closest router to the ps3
Even if I did do that, the ps3 would still need to get through the WPA before the router access control list. Putting an access control list won't change the problem XD
No, it has to get through the Access Control List before it can attempt to connect using a password. This is designed to stop Brute force, Dictionary and DoS attacks.
..oh but in the end the ps3 would still need the WPA password to connect doesn't it? ... and how do I get the MAC adress from both computer and PS3?
If you're using a lappy, it's normally on the bottom on 1 of the stickers. Same with PS3, at least mine was.
Then again if you can't see it on your computer, try this:-
