Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

I am simply not able to connect my PSP to play online.

When I try to connect my PSP in order to play online, I put the IP settings on automatic and it tells me it isn't able to obtain the IP address. I tried to put the IP settings manually but I'm simply unable to find what my primary and secondary DNS are. In fact, I'm not even sure I know what a DNS is.

My psp slim has a message "DSN Error" when I try


Hi, claytly!

Sadly a DSN Error means that your system/game didn't pass the online authentification process. Are you using full retail copies of the games? This issues are more common when using modded firmware or backed up games. The way to fix it is by using the latest PSP firmwre and retail copies of the game.

I hope this helped you and i apologize for the inconvinience.

HOW DO YOU GET ON LINE WITH A PSP


Step1 – Go to Settings and then select Network settings
Step2 – Select Infrastructure Mode and start a [New Connection]. By setting up in Infrastructure Mode, you will be able to take advantage of the more exciting features of the PSP, such as browsing the Internet and playing games online with your friends.
Step3 – Access the WLAN Settings and select scan to search for an SSID of nearby access points. If you find more than one access point, simply connect to the one with the strongest signal.
Step4 – Once an SSID is found, select it (make sure you don’t rename it) and move to the WLAN Security Settings. You should note that if the access point is using WEP encryption, you will need to enter the WEP key manually (when the access point is detected, it will display the type of encryption it is running. WEP key should be displayed on your router. If it displays none, simply move onto the next step.
Step5 – Now you have a couple of choices of either Easy or Custom in Address Settings menu. I suggest you selecting the Easy option which will complete the Infrastructure Mode set-up automatically.
Step6 – Choose your Connection Name and enter it. A Setting List will be displayed. Press x button to save settings.
Step7 – Test Connection to make sure everything works. If all is okay, Network Settings will display Connection Name, Signal Strength, SSID, BSSID, Channel, Security and IP Address.
In a nutshell there we are, 7 simple steps to connect your PSP to the internet using a wireless router to enable you to start surfing the internet, playing games online with friends, exchanging pictures and downloading your favourite RSS channels.

WHAT IS DNS ERROR ANDHOW DO I FIX IT


DNS error is already an issue with the Access Point you are connecting with.

If you are using your own access point, try to restart it. If the same still occurs, hardcode the DNS of your provider on the wireless router you are using.

Hope this helps.
