Setting up PS3 to work through Airport Extreme

Time:October 11
Advertisement
I've checked various message boards and many seem to have this problem but I can't find a clear solution. I have a new PS3, it locations my Airport Extreme network, which uses a WEP password, but when I type in my password it won't accept it. I don't know how to convert my simple password to the ASCII or Hex password it seems to need, and I'm not sure how to reset my Airport so as to start all over. Has anyone else successfully configured their PS3 to Airport Extreme and have any advice for me?

Launch AirPort Utility, double-click on your AirPort Extreme in the left column, then pull down the "Base Station" menu and select "Equivalent Network Password".
