Did you know you can use your PSP to pick up free wireless internet? Most people don't even realize this but it's pretty straightforward once you know how! Sit back and relax while you learn to get internet on your PSP!
Requirements:
There are a couple of fundamental things you will need before you can start surfing the web with your PSP. The first is some form of wireless internet source. It doesn't matter where it comes from, could be in your home or in your local Starbucks, all that matters is that you are in an area where you can get internet. Psp wireless settings follow the 802.11b wireless networking protocols, which are just about the most common in the world, so most kinds of wireless network connection will be just fine.
Also note that a copy of Wipeout:Pure is necessary to get internet on your PSP.
Sitting comfortably? Ok, prepare to learn how to get internet on PSP!
Step 1- Switch on the PSP and go to the System Menu, and then enter "Network Settings". From there go into "Infrastructure mode", and select a connection to edit. If you already have a home connection set up or something, just select this as the one you are going to edit. Leave the name of the profile as it is, and skip the WLAN settings if they are already set up.
Step2- Go into "Address Settings" click on "Custom" and be sure to leave "IP Address Setting" as Automatic. Believe me; adjusting this will not help you get internet on your PSP!
Step 3- Go into "DNS Setting" and click on manual. This is where we need to type the address of the web gateway we will be using. The most popular one to use for this is the gateway at Endgadget, so input the numbers "208.42.28.174" as the Primary DNS IP, and put zeros for the Secondary DNS IP. (0.0.0.0). If for any reason this gateway is not working you can usually find others with a quick Google search.
Step 4- In the "Proxy Server" options, select "Do Not Use" All you need to do from there is confirm everything, and save it all by pushing X when prompted.
Step 5- Launch Wipeout:Pure as normal, and go into the Downloads menu. When asked to select a connection, choose the one you have just been editing, and you should be presented with the Endgadget web screen. Et voila! How to get internet on PSP!
Provided you have the resource mentioned above, it's pretty easy to get internet on your PSP. Once you have it all set up you'll probably wonder how you got by without it!

When I try to connect to the internet using a wireless connection, a screen comes up says "Communication with the server failed. A DNS error has occurred. (80410402)." How do I fix this problem?


if it is saying DNS error it is not a problem with the PSP, most likely a setting with your wireless router. or a problem with teh internet at the time of trying. check wireless settings on the PSP and make sure it has a number listed for DNS server.

I can't connect to internet dns error 80410410


means the settings may not be correct. Try this step by step and it should fix it.
If this doesnt work let me know at what step you get an error and what the error code is. Then from there i can specifically diagnose your problem by providing you with step by step instructions on how to solve your error. step 1 Your PSP will detect any wireless wireless network within its range as long as the wireless
adapter is switched on. The switch for this is on the left end of the PSP, near the analogue
thumbstick. If the switch is in the down position, the wireless network adapter is off; push the
switch into the up position and it'll turn it on. If you're not going to be using wireless
networking it's a good idea to keep it turned off as it'll make your batteries last longer.

step 2 When you turn on your PSP's wireless adapter it'll look for any wireless networks nearby. If
there's another PSP within range it'll automatically set up what's called an 'ad-hoc' network
between the two. This will enable you to play multiplayer games between the two PSPs with one
hosting the game and the other joining it. When you want to join an existing wireless network,
such as when you want to browse the internet, you'll be using an 'infrastructure' wireless
networking mode.
step 3 To connect to a wireless network, go to the home screen of your PSP and look under Settings. If
you scroll all the way to the bottom you'll find Network Settings, so enter this and on the next
screen you'll be asked to choose between Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure, so pick the latter by
selecting it and pressing X. Press O to return to the previous screen. You'll need to set up a
Connection. You can save the settings for 10 different Connections and you can choose between the
Connections you've set up whenever you need to use the Infrastructure network mode.

step 4 Pick New Connection and press X. You can give the new Connection a name by pressing X and using
the text-entry screen. Give it a descriptive name like 'Home Network' or 'University Network' so
you know when and where you can use it. When you've entered the name for your new Connection
you'll be asked whether you want to scan for WLAN settings or to enter them manually; select the
Scan option and press right on the directional-pad. Your PSP will then scan the area for any
available networks and collect the settings needed.

step 5 A list of available networks (called Access Points) will be displayed, giving its name (called an
SSID), whether it's encrypted or not and the signal strength. If there is more than one network,
use the D-pad to scroll down to the one you want to join and press X. You'll be asked to confirm
the settings so press right on the D-pad to scroll through each. When you get to the security
settings, choose the appropriate setting from the list, which is WEP in most cases, and press
right on the D-pad again. If you need to enter the WEP key, speak to whoever runs the wireless
network and they'll provide it for you. Press X and enter the WEP using the text-entry screen.

step 6 Once you've done that you can check the settings you've entered on the final screen and save
them. Now you'll be able to connect to the wireless network. If you return to the main home
screen you can now update your PSP's software by going to Settings and selecting Network Update.
Alternatively you can go to the Network section on the far right of the home screen to browse the
internet using the PSP's in-built internet browser. Or you can fire up that multi-player game
you've been itching to try out and get going!
Now you're online, if you need further assistance or get an error code please let me know and i
will be glad to assist you further. Thanks-Midwest-tek

DNS error (80410411) cannot find server


If you are using a public router (meaning you're using just a connection from somebody else's router) prolly, you're DNS have been blocked...have you tried connecting to other sources other than the one you can't use? If you have a connection and you don't own your own wireless router, try borrowing one from someone you know first then try if it works...then that's the time you should ask for your own wireless router...
