I'm using a mobile internet connection on my Ubuntu laptop, and I'm sharing it (wlan) using adhoc. The problem seems to be that it only works using WEP security, but my PS3 can not connect to, or even find, the shared wireless network.

I've tried using both "WEP 128-bit Passphrase" and "WEP 40/128-bit Key (Hex or ASCII)", but niether works.

Is there something I can do to share my connection using WPA or is there an other solution?

@fossfreedom Umm, what more information do you want? The OP described the network setup (Mobile -> Laptop -> Adhoc -> PS3), described the encryption, and asked why the PS3 can't find it. That's plenty of information for a potential answerer. And unless old=closed now, this should be open –  TheLQ Jul 13 '12 at 21:57
