Possible solution for: 8013013E

11 Replies 30,240 Views Created 27-07-2007
If you're trying to connect your PS3 via WiFi, and it displays the 8013013E error, try the following:

If you keep getting the error while you're sure about having the correct WEP settings set and (in case you're using MAC authentication) you've added your PS3's MAC address to your WiFi router/access point. Then look to the 'Authentication Type' setting of your router/access point.

The PS3 will only connect via WiFi if the 'Authentication Type' setting of your router/access point is set to 'Open (System)' (=also the safest setting) or 'Both' / 'Auto'. Just make sure you don't set the 'Authentication Type' to 'Shared (Key)', because this won't work for the PS3.

Note: After you've set the correct 'Authentication Type', you might need to adjust the settings of other WiFi devices in order for them to work properly with the new router/access point setting.

Good luck!

PS: The easiest method to verify wether the 'Authentication Type' setting is causing the error, is to temporarily disable all other authentication functions (e.g. WEP, MAC authentication) of your router/access point. If your PS3 can't connect even with those functions disabled, then you can be pretty sure it's time to look at the 'Authentication Type' setting of your router/access point.

Re: Possible solution for: 8013013E

Thanks for your reply

My Netgear DG834G only seems to have WEP, WPA Pre-shared Key or WPA-802.1x as the choice of security. Does this mean I will have to use WEP as this is not "shared key"?

I can't find another "authentication type"

Thanks for your help

I suggest you try them all and see which one actually works. My WiFi AP doesn't have WPA, so I'm not really sure.

Good luck with it!

I'm using the DG834G too,
after installing the latest firmware WPA did not work any more !
I had to cancel the latest firmware, now with the older version it works again with WPA/PSK....

Could you tell me which version of firmware you are using with the DG834G?

Mine is the DG834Gv3 using the V4.01.30 firmware.

V4.01.30 seems to be the newest firmware, unfortunatelly after installing this my PS3 could not connect any more with the old WPA-PSK Key.

Attention: don't try to install an older firmware on this new one, I did so but now with the older firmware V4.01.04 I have other serious problems...
after doing this my PS3 works again with the WPA Key but I have other problems now for example with the browser of my PC and Laptop who is also connceted to the same router.

I'm working now on this problem, I hope I can resolve it soon....

Ps.
sorry my English is not the best, I'm italian :smileywink:

Re: Possible solution for: 8013013E

Thanks, you're English is much better than my Italian!

Prego..

I don't think I'll mess around too much with the firmware on the Netgear router,
There must be a problem with the PS3, but I cannot find any decent help on the PS3 site.

I'll post again if I get news.

for me it was impossible to "downgrade" the firmware to an older version with success
after trying to do so I got problems even with the Internet Browser of my PC and Laptop
to resolve the problem I changed the router and I got one with an older firmware, now it works again...
