    It'll keep track of multiple connections, that's not the issue.

    If the new one is using the same SSID that might cause a problem though. Is it?

    Are you putting in the key (which is a string of hexadecimal like 09FF3E8DC9 or whatever) or a pass phrase (which is a human-readable password)?

    If it has any letters other than A-F, then it's not the key (which is what you need to put into the PS3 if it doesn't ask you for the phrase).

    Log into your router's settings and find what key the password is turned into.

    No. There's parental controls for game ratings and the web browser, but nothing to stop use of the PS3 itself.
