SOURCE: my PSP internet connection not supported to my access point.

The SSID is the NAME of your Routers connection. So you need to know your WiFi connections Name, That's the "Access point" Security, Is IF you assigned a WEP/WAP KEY, when the router was first setup. If NO Key is set, that is what it means "Unsecured",
You need to get a Netgear router manual, for your exact model, it shows all in pictures how to do it.

How to download a psp games

You can buy games and download demos from PSN.(First you must have latest firmware installed and then PSN is last icon on PSP menu.)

If you mean how to download pirated games that is illegal.(Anyway: first you must have unlocked PSP then you download games on torrent trackers.)

As you can see I dont Know how to download games into a PSP. so teach me how to download games

There are three things you can do:
1) Download demos.
Fairly simple, go to "" and download what demo you want.
2) Download games via PSN.
For this, you need to pay for each game you download.
PSN is the playstation Network that you can access with the PSP.
Find the game you want and it will download in the right place(i think, i haven't done this before).
3) Hack
This will take some time, because you have to first hack your psp.
Then the only thing you need to do is reformat the memory stick and place the game's iso/cso into the right folder.

There ya go, 2 legal and 1 illegal ways to download games. =D

Where to download free psp games?

Unfortunately, It's true. You can't get free games unless they're demos. I have searched for a way to get free games for a long time. It's not possible unless you are using a custom firmware, such as DarkAlex's custom firmware. That would require a Pandora battery and othe hacks. It may be possible to downgrade the firmware to and earlier version, but you would lose some of the new features Sony provides. You can find demo that are not on the PlayStation Network (PSN for short) on various websites. However, they are only demos.

Im a newbie to psp how do i get online

Getting "online" can mean many things, so I'm going to try and answer them all.
Getting on to a Wi-Fi network. To get onto a Wi-Fi network, just scroll all the way left to [Settings] in the home screen (XMB), then to the bottom to [Network Settings]. Then choose Infrastructure Mode, then [New Connection]. If you know the ID of your network, go Manual, but most will want [Scan]. Choose the desired Network out of the list to continue. It may need a security key, which you can enter at a later screen. When you get to the end of the wizard, you press Circle to save the connection, then you can Test it on the next screen. You are connected, and can use that Wi-Fi network for any Internet Functions on the PSP.
Joining PSN: To join PlayStation Network on the PSP, scroll all the way to the right of the XMB, to the PSN icon, then choose PlayStation Store, it should prompt you for an account, then follow the prompts to create one. You can also head over to and somewhere at the top of the Page there should be a Sign In/Sign Up option for PSN. Again, follow the prompts, then enter your newly created login details into your PSP when it asks.
For Online Gaming: This procedure is very different for different parts of the world. I'm an Australian, so I'll use the Australian method, which is the same for Europe. North America uses a very different method, so you should check your local Australia/Europe: Unless you are using a very new Game, most games online functions will ask for a "Handle" and "Password". To get one of these, look in the packaging for your PSP for a small code (two parts of 7 digits). Once you have that head over to, choose your country, and enter your code on the right where it asks. Then it will give you a Handle and a Password, you can enter into your PSP Game's Multiplayer section to get online.
