Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Wireless won't connect.

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.

How to secure your wireless router


Most WLAN hardware has gotten easy enough to set up that many users simply plug it in and start using the network without giving much thought to security. Nevertheless, taking a few extra minutes to configure the security features of your linksys router wireless or access point is time well spent. Here are some of the things you can do to protect your wireless network:
1) Secure your linksys router wireless or access point administration interface linksys router wireless have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all. As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else. You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed. Without it, the only way to access the linksys router wireless or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.
2) Don't broadcast your SSIDlinksys router wireless automatically (and continually) broadcast the network's name, or SSID (Service Set IDentifier). This makes setting up wireless clients extremely convenient since you can locate a WLAN without having to know what it's called, but it will also make your WLAN visible to any wireless systems within range of it. Turning off SSID broadcast for your network makes it invisible to your neighbors and passers-by (though it will still be detectible by WLAN "sniffers").
3)Enable WPA encryption instead of WEP802.11's WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) encryption has well-known weaknesses that make it relatively easy for a determined user with the right equipment to crack the encryption and access the wireless network. A better way to protect your WLAN is with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). WPA provides much better protection and is also easier to use, since your password characters aren't limited to 0-9 and A-F as they are with WEP. WPA support is built into Windows XP (with the latest Service Pack) and virtually all modern wireless hardware and operating systems. A more recent version, WPA2, is found in newer hardware and provides even stronger encryption, but you'll probably need to download an XP patch in order to use it.
4) Remember that WEP is better than nothing If you find that some of your wireless devices only support WEP encryption (this is often the case with non-PC devices like media players, PDAs, and DVRs), avoid the temptation to skip encryption entirely because in spite of it's flaws, using WEP is still far superior to having no encryption at all. If you do use WEP, don't use an encryption key that's easy to guess like a string of the same or consecutive numbers. Also, although it can be a pain, WEP users should change encryption keys often-- preferably every week. See this page if you need help getting WEP to work.
5) Use MAC filtering for access control Unlike IP addresses, MAC addresses are unique to specific network adapters, so by turning on MAC filtering you can limit network access to only your systems (or those you know about). In order to use MAC filtering you need to find (and enter into the linksys router wireless or AP) the 12-character MAC address of every system that will connect to the network, so it can be inconvenient to set up, especially if you have a lot of wireless clients or if your clients change a lot. MAC addresses can be "spoofed" (imitated) by a knowledgable person, so while it's not a guarantee of security, it does add another hurdle for potential intruders to jump.
6) Reduce your WLAN transmitter powerYou won't find this feature on all wireless linksys router wireless and access points, but some allow you lower the power of your WLAN transmitter and thus reduce the range of the signal. Although it's usually impossible to fine-tune a signal so precisely that it won't leak outside your home or business, with some trial-and-error you can often limit how far outside your premises the signal reaches, minimizing the opportunity for outsiders to access your WLAN.
7) Disable remote administrationlinksys router wireless have the ability to be remotely administered via the Internet. Ideally, you should use this feature only if it lets you define a specific IP address or limited range of addresses that will be able to access the linksys router wireless. Otherwise, almost anyone anywhere could potentially find and access your router. As a rule, unless you absolutely need this capability, it's best to keep remote administration turned off. (It's usually turned off by default, but it's always a good idea to check.)

I want to connect internet on my psp through a wireless access point but iam constantly recieving dns errors , what settings should be made on my psp and my access point? to solve the problem???


  1. Connect your router
  2. Open a brower window on your computer, preferably Internet explorer.
  3. Enter the IP address of the router (Ex: 192.168.1.1)
  4. Upon entering the IP address of the router in the browser it should direct you to your router box. If this does not happen then most likely your router box has been configured to a different IP address. To get this IP number run the set-up program.
  5. Now in the routher settings navigate within your router's settings dialog and locate "Wirless Settings"
  6. Check if you are assigned a SSID
  7. Check your region
  8. You should be on Channel 11. Sometimes the channel could different, in such situations make sure you are on the same channel.
  9. Check if "Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID)" is enabled
  10. Check if "Enable Wireless access point" is enabled
  11. Set authentication as "Open system". You will find this option under "Security Encryption (WEP)"
  12. Set strength of encryption as "Disabled"
  13. Now click on "Wireless Card Access List". You may need to provide your password again.
  14. Make sure "Turn on Access control" option is turned off "Disabled"
  15. You should now see your PSP listed. No, you dont see then on your psp, go to "system settings" and then to "system information". You will see MAC address, now make a note of this MAC address.
  16. Now in "Wireless Card Access List" select "Add". If you are not able to do this then enter the PSP's MAC address and click "Finish/Apply" when done.
  17. In WAN settings, verify that "Connect Automatically as required" is enabled
  18. In "LAN TCP/IP Settings" make note of all of the information included. You may need this later. You may not, but it's a good idea to take note of it now.
  19. Under "Router Status" make note of all the relevant information included here as well. You may or may not need it.

I am trying to connect my Wii to the internet and error code 51330 comes up. What do i need to do


Error Code: 51330
This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:
  1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
    3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
    7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
      • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
      • WPA - PSK (AES)
      • WPA2 - PSK (AES)

  2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
    1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
    2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
    3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

  3. Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available).

  4. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
    1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page.
    2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

  5. Ensure that the router is set to broadcast in "mixed" or "b/g" mode. Routers set to "g only" may not be able to allow a successful connection from the Wii console. (The option to change this setting is typically found in the "Wireless" section of your router's settings. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router, if available.)

  6. Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.


  7. Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

I have a laptop run Vesta trying to set wireless connection to HP Potosmart C4385 print using ad hoc network setup. When selecting Ad Hoc connection in the printer setup it saids it can not find it or...


For this specific issue about installing the printer to a wireless connection. You need to install the software first as a usb connection. After the successful installation of the usb connection then you can add a device and it should work.

Step one: Gather the necessary hardware and information Follow the procedure below before obtaining your wireless network:
  1. Obtain your network SSID and WEP. To simplify this process, press the Wireless button on the all-in-one, and select Restore Network Defaults . This turns wireless off and sets the all-in-one's SSID to hpsetup .
  2. Press the Wireless button to turn wireless back on. Look for hpsetup when you select your network.
  3. Make sure that wireless is enabled on the all-in-one.
  4. Make sure that the computer that will be using the all-in-one has access to the router/access point.
You will need the following to set up the product on a wireless network:
  • A wireless 802.11 network that includes a wireless access point.
  • A desktop computer or laptop with wireless networking support or a network interface card (NIC).
  • Broadband Internet access is required for some features of the HP software to function. Cable Internet or DSL are examples of Broadband Internet access. NOTE: If you connect the unit on a wireless network that has Internet access, HP recommends that you use a wireless router (access point or base station) that uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • The network name, or Service Set Identifier (SSID). NOTE: The SSID is obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.
  • The Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) passphrase, if needed. CAUTION: To prevent other users from accessing your wireless network, HP strongly recommends using a password or passphrase and a unique SSID to your access point. Your access point might have been shipped with a default SSID, which can be accessed by other users using the same default SSID. For more information on how to change the SSID, see the documentation that came with your access point. NOTE: The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.Some access points provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key (index 1) when setting up the wireless network.
  • If the network is set up with an Apple AirPort base station and you are using a password instead of WEP HEX or WEP ASCII to access this network, you need to get the equivalent WEP key. See the documentation that came with the Apple AirPort base station for more information.
  • If IP address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed.
  • If MAC address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed. NOTE: HP cannot set up or change the SSID, WEP key or WPA passphrase. This information is required before connecting the HP All-in-One to the wireless network.
Step two: Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network Follow the procedure to connect the unit to the wireless infrastructure network:
  1. Insert the software CD.
  2. Click Install .
  3. Click Next on the Please Allow All HP Install Wizard Processes screen.
  4. Select Easy Install on the Choose Easy Install or Advanced Install screen.
  5. Select Through the Network on the Connection Type screen. Figure 2: Connection Type screen c01160788.jpg
  6. When it doesn’t find your device, click Next . Figure 3: Using Network Setup c01164746.jpg
  7. Plug in your device via USB (it will tell you when to disconnect later). Figure 4: Making a connection to your all-in-one c01160790.jpg
  8. Select your network from the list, and click Next . Figure 5: Wireless Network Setup c01160791.jpg
  9. Enter your WEP key (if applicable). Figure 6: Specifying your network security settings c01160792.jpg
  10. Once it has completed connecting to the network, click Next . Figure 7: Network connecting completed c01160793.jpg
  11. Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and the All-in-One . Figure 8: Disconnecting the USB cable c01160794.jpg
  12. Click Finish to complete the software installation process. Figure 9: Software installation complete c01160795.jpg
