Hi,

Your switch probably is broken or has bad contact. Normally the WiFi function should go off immediately as you turn off the switch. You should let your PSP checked by Sony if it's still under warranty or let someone who can work with PSP hardware fix it for you.

You will need to connect to a WIFI before you can download to your PSP. This is exactly how you do it Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

How can i take internet in my psp


The PSP is more than a gaming platform. It has WiFi connectivity, and that means that setting up PSP Internet is possible, just like on any computer. The WiFi feature is intended primarily to be used for upgrading software and for downloading games. But you can go several steps further than that, and it isn't difficult to do either.
You need to have access to an Internet connection first and foremost. This can either be at home where you really need a wireless router, or use you can try accessing a public WiFi hotspot like your local Starbucks or wherever.
The most common home set up is an Ethernet cable running from the computer to the DSL or cable modem, which in turn is connected to the telephone line. By installing a wireless router between the computer and the DSL or cable modem, you should be able to connect your PSP to the Internet too.
Of course, setting up PSP Internet isn't just as easy as that! And if you don't have a home Internet connection of any kind, then you'll have to find a WiFi access point that will allow you to connect. This should be reasonably easy in most medium to big cities. But if you live in a small one-horse town way back in the sticks, then maybe, maybe not.
The PSP also needs WiFi access that is the 802.121b wireless networking protocol.
Hmmm... I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, that's it! Way too technical for me! But hold on, it isn't.
This protocol is, thankfully, the world's most popular one. So the chances are excellent that if you find a suitable public WiFi access point, it will be the good old 802.121b wireless networking protocol.
Most people find problems when they come to the more technical bits. Finding the Network Settings, choosing a New Connection, making sure it's Infrastructure Mode - it's all too much for many who try it. Then there's the WLAN Settings to access, a scan to implement for an SSID of any access points nearby, hoping it's not using WEP encryption!
Time to think again...
This isn't rocket science, though some may think it is.
You need, in this order:
1. To have some kind of a proven Internet connection.
2. Select the Infrastructure Mode in Network Settings and start a New Connection.
3. Access the WLAN Settings and initiate a scan to search for suitable access points.
4. Select a suitable access point that is not encrypted.
5. Test the Connection and enjoy!

WLan signal strength lower than before


it really just depends what the repair man did too it any wireless lan card will have an antenna so he either messed up the antenna or their might be a setting in the menu that will allow you to turn the power up to the wireless device but it will make your battery life shorter
