Wifi switch is usually in the left side of the PSP. You may turn off PSP first, then press the wifi button and turn on PSP while pressing the wifi button. See if wifi will turn on.

Every time i try to connect to the internet at home it always pops up that my WLAN switch on the PSP is not turned on. Can you help me with that!

Hello. This basically means that the WiFi switch which should be on the left side of the PSP is off. Simply slide the switch upward and you should see the wireless light flashing. Then try again to connect and it should work.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

I have a sony psp and it does not let me use the internet browser it tells me that the wlan switch is not turned on


Please check the switch on the left side of the psp. Just where your left hand holds onto the psp. You would find a switch, please slide it upward. This should turn it on.

Kind Regards

I can't on the internet

This might be because the settings on your router/LAN might have changed or you are too far away from the router. Another reason might be that the WLAN (Wireless Local Area Netwrk) switch is switched off It depends on where you're holding your psp before I can tell you where to drag the switch. So it is best you look in the manual for a picture of the WLAN switch.

IP adress dosent work.

You need to match the security settings on the Wifi router. I do not know what security is set up on your Wifi, so I cannot accurately solve this problem. I have my router set to WEP with a passcode. On the PSP, I tell the network setup that the wifi is WEP and put in a passcode to match the Wifi routers security. If you have the passcode wrong, the IP address part will fail. Just find out the security type and passcode, then set up the PSP's network connection to match.
