Well here is a step by step guide. Go through it and if you still have a problem let me know.
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

Cant connect my ps3 psp go to the internet using


Check to see if your router has backwards compatibility to wireless G because the N router uses 256bit encryption coding while the G uses 128 bit encoding. PS3,and PSP use the 128 encryption coding also. If the router does not support 128 bit encoding you will never connect with it.

Trying to connect to internet on my sons psp but cant remember the password that was entered,and i cant set up the internet on his psp , testing connection is failing


Go to your Settings, System Settings, and click on Restore default settings. Doing this resets everything to factory settings. Don't worry, it ONLY resets settings. It won't delete anything on your Memory Stick. This feature resets your nicknames, any passwords, and along with Flash player and WMA playback. This will work. When you are done, it will be as if you just got your PSP. Your data will still be intact. However, if you're talking about not knowing the password on your Wi-fi network, then you'll have to contact the provider.

      Make sure you have an internet connection and your PSP is within range of the wireless access point (or hotspot).
      PSP®online connectivity requires internet service and network devices, suchas a DSL or cable modem and a wireless router - for example, a Wi-Fihotspot at a café or a wireless local area network (WLAN) in your home.

    • System Software
      Make sure you've got the latest System Software.
      Requires PSP system software version of 2.0 or higher. Visit PSP System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.

    For more information, see Using the On-screen Keyboard.

  5. Select a connection and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.

  6. The web page is displayed.

  7. To hide the on-screen menu, press the icn_btntriangle_color.gif button.

If you have issues connecting to the Internet, you may wish to troubleshoot your Infrastructure mode connection.

How to get internet on my psp


Look its not necessary get internet on ur psp. Its how to connect to the internet on the psp. You are gonna need a wireless internet network. Usually at food restaurants, or at ur house. Its not like you can connect the psp with a cable to the internet. Its all wireless hottie262477. To find wireless go all the way to your left on the psp and turn on the wifi button. Then go ur settings and all the way down to network settings. From there click on infracture mode. And scan for wireless hotspots. Of course any wireless one that says it needs a wep code. Means that it has a password and if you don't know the password you can't necessarily access it. So use the no password hotspots. Also remember its very easy to connect a wireless network in your house as long as u have high speed internet. Now that you this u can enjoy ur psp and play online and use the web browser. Good luck Diego :-)
