Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
My WLAN uses MAC address, and WEP. Also, my access point name does not broadcast. I manually put all the information into the psp, and I added the MAC addrss to my "allowed" list. The psp recognizes the connection, but won't connect to it. My laptop, and pc connect with no problem, and I checked and double-checked all the information that I put in the psp. How can I fix this?
First and foremost check that you have WiFi switched on, it sounds so simple but you'd be surprised how often this is the problem. The WiFi switch is on the left-hand side as you look at the screen and needs to be in the up position to be on. A quick note about WiFi security; WEP is useless, even 128bit, freely available 'stumbling' software can crack a WEP encrypted network in as little as 20 seconds (depending on network activity). You need to use WPA or if you're OS supports it WPA2. Hiding you're SSID makes no difference as you're router still transmits and is therefor still visible, it just doesn't respond to access point requests. MAC address filtering is useless because once your network has been found all MAC addresses are visible. These days 'stumbling' software even automates the task of masking one MAC address over another. Although using as many layers of security as possible can help to keep nosy neighbours out WPA (and preferably WPA2) really is the only thing that will slow losers with nothing better to do down long enough for them to get bored.
