AOSS button is not found on your PSP or PS3. It is found on more expensive ROUTERS
AOSS is what you would see on some high end routers. if your routers doesn't support this method or have this button you can't set up your psp using it.

The PSP does not have an AOSS button. AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) is used for wireless setup of devices to your network. AOSS button is found on your router IF it has this feature. If it does not then more than likely your router does not have the ability to set devices up in this manner.

1)To use this set up for the PSP go to Settings>Network Settings> Internet Setting> (Method) Custom> (Select Connection Method) Wireless- ( Setting) Auto - AOSS. At this point the PSP will tell you to push the button on the router and that you have two minutes or else the attempt to connect will stop.

********************* NOTICE **********************
Again this only works if your router has this button. and it is not found on your ps3 or psp

so you'll need to set it up differently. if your home is set up with wireless router and yourare connected online wirelessly read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.

I don't know how to get internet on my nintendo dsi

Is there wireless connection nearby? If there isn't you can't use the internet. If there is a WiFi connection go to System Settings, keep going to the right until you see Internet (tap it), then tap Connection Settings. You can tap on either Connection 1, 2 or 3 - it doesn't matter. I don't have an AOSS compatible access point, but check if you do. If you do, tap the AOSS icon and follow the directions given. Of course, I doubt that you would, so tap Search for an Access Point (Manual Setup is hard). It'll begin to search, and if it finds any they'll pop up in a list. Those with grey locks have high security, and can be connected to by searching for access points in Advanced Setup. Those that are golden and unlocked do not require a password and can be easily accessed....and those that are golden but locked need a password. Get it?

Oh yeah, and those little connection boxes with the bars tell you how strong the connection is. I go for the green boxes with 2 or 3 bars. Sometimes if there's nothing else you can try the yellow connections, but they work slower. If the network has no bars, don't tap it - it's a waste of time and will not connect.

Hope it helps...

How to get the AOSS to work?

AOSS stands for Air Station One-Touch Secure System. It is a proprietary method of security that automatically configures the SSID and WEP key for wireless routers made by Buffalo Technology and a wireless device connecting to it. You can use the AOSS setup method with any AOSS compatible router. AOSS capable routers will have a button on the router identified with the letters "AOSS." Review the documentation for your router to verify if it is AOSS capable before continuing with your setup. Routers with AOSS are able to automatically detect the Nintendo DS and reconfigure the settings for both to establish a connection with each other. Routers with this feature will have a button on the router identified with the letters 'AOSS'. If you are not sure if your router is AOSS capable, please refer to your router's manual. Important If you already have other wireless devices configured to use your AOSS access point, you may have to reconfigure them after setting up the Nintendo DS to connect to it. If you feel this may be the case, we recommend using the "Search for an Access Point" function of the Nintendo DS.

What is AOSS ? and how do i use it ?

Basically it is a secure wireless connection that can be setup between 2 compatible wireless devices. There are some wireless routers around that will have an AOSS button on them. You simply press this button and set your games console to use AOSS and they will link automatically. Unless your router has AOSS you will not be able to use this function so standard wireless with a WEP key should be used.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Getting the internet on

first you need to set up your Connection Settings under "Internet" in the System Settings Menu. Then you need to either "Search for an Access Point", in which your system will search for a nearby Wi-Fi hotspot, or choose "AOSS". When "Searching for an Access Point" turns up results, they'll be accompanied by a padlock icon that either shows as being locked (the WEP access code is needed) or unlocked (free access). If you're trying to set up access to an AOSS-compatable access point, then you'll need to press the AOSS button on the access point until it flashes.
