I have a wps security router and my psp won't connect to it


As far as I know the Sony PSP supports WEP Wifi encryption only. As it will not work with your network. Open your routers settings and change the wireless security protocol from WPA to WEP. That should fix the problem.

    Im having problems conecting my nintendo wii to my tiscali siemens gigaset se587,can you help me please as i have tried to link them both together with a wireless conection but i just get an error message?...


    hi

    i have just solved this problem on the SE 587, hope it works for you.

    1) in internet explorer type 192.168.1.1, which should bring up your router settings - then select "wireless" and then "basic wireless settings" - under "auto channel" set it to "disable" and the set "wireless channel" to "1" , then "save settings" - my pc briefly went offline and quickly came back.

    2) when setting up the connection on the wii you need the code from the bottom of the router - make sure you have "caps lock" ON on the wii when you set up.

    3) now everything works perfectly on the wii - you dont even need the pc on! just the router.

    good luck IAN.
