Connect Huawei E5331 MiFi to PS3 (WEP 2 key compatible)?

[ Edited ]
10 Replies 2,961 Views edited 20-09-2012

Hi. I've just got a Three Huawei MiFi Wireless dongle thing from Three and I'm struggling to connect it to my PS3. My laptop, phones etc all manage to accept the security key that is on the device but for some reason the PS3 won't accept it as either WEP or WPA, it says the characters are invalid...

I'm stumped so any advice is appreciated. Thanks

when you type the key codes that longer than 8 digits in. remember to check to delete the extra space that pressing start or return can enter into the entry text.

Hi, cheers for that. I've actually sorted it. I just had to change the WEP2 to WEP and the key worked fine!
The MiFi dongle is fine for playing MW3 which I'm pretty chuffed with!

Yes, it is seen by the PS3 as a normal WiFi router.
You can play any game online with it.
Depending on the 3G signal strength in your location, the best speed you will get will be 3.4mbps, so plan on any downloads taking a long time, and costing a bit, depending on your data allowance.

Will it still be as fast if it were 21 Mbit/s

Probably not :smileyhappy:
You might experience some lag, drop outs etc. Best bet is give it a go, see what happens.

Re: Connect Huawei E5331 MiFi to PS3 (WEP 2 key compatible)?

hey guys

 

got my ps3 hooked up to my ps3, but for some reason cant enter the ps store, plus cant seem to connected to uncharted 3.

is there any additional device you could use to boost the online gaming experience on the PS3? becauses the signal states 5bars most of the time, but still no luck

 

i reckon the speed of the wireless is the problem,? I could be wrong

help would be appreciated.
