Re: sony psp

Hi PrincessDi,

The PSP can only connect to the internet through WIFI.  You can ride around to find a hot spot, or go to an internet cafe'.  I can go to the big sity nearby on main street and always pick up a hotspot. Run network connection to setup the wifi and connect.  In your home you will need internet, and a router setup to broudcast Wifi.  The USB port on your PSP is for loading up stuff like music Video and games.  You could go online on your computer and go to and download Music,Video, Wallpapers, Screenshots, and trial Games. Then hook up your PSP through the USB connection to load whatever you downloaded on your computer to the MagicGate Card in your PSP. also has the manual you can download under PSP and Support.

I dont know my wep key for my psp

If you are trying to connect to a wireless network using your PSP, what you need is the WEP for the wireless network.

If you are using a home wireless network you would need to ask the person who set the WEP key.

Or, you could go to the wireless router, and there should be a little reset place to push with a pin. Press it, hold it for twenty seconds or so, and then go onto a computer connected to the wireless router and enter in the MAC address that you should be able to find on the bottom of your router on a little sticker.or if that is not found, you can do a search on your wireless router's MAC address on the internet. Just do a search in Google or Bing or whatever for the wireless router model and look for the router's web address.

Enter that address (which should look like a format) into the address bar on the Internet Browser. You will be taken to your router's webpage where you can change that information. You sign on as Admin, usually there is no need for a password after a hardware reset, and you should see a security setting option. Select the WEP or WPA setting and enter in your own key. Write it down, because if you have any other computers or devices connected to the wireless router they will all need to set their internet secuirty protocol to that new key or they will not be able to access the internet.

Go into your PSP Network settings and go through the options, enter in your new key, and bam! Your there. :)

Or you SHOULD be.

If you are in a new area, you will need to know their key or hope you are in a place with unrestricted access. :)

(If you didnt know, If you have a PS3 you can connect to it REMOTELY through your PSP if you register them together, and watch movies downloaded to your PS3, listen to music, look at your pictures, about everything but play games that you have on your PS3. From just about anywhere in the world that you have internet access through your PSP and your PS3 is connected. But that's a different matter! ;) )

Internet connection of psp

To connect to the internet on your PSP, you need a Wireless Router or Wireless Access Point. Once you have a wireless one, you should know the name of your router. That's what an SSID (Service Set Identifier) is.
Once you know this information you should be able to find your router on your PSP. Once you do you should have a password on your router so no one you don't know can use your internet. When adding a connection on your PSP you will also need to enter the password for your router. You can use WEP, WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES). WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES) have very high security and WEP has a lower security.
Once you have added your connection, just type an address and surf! Not all websites will load because some require too much memory.

Assuming you have Official SONY PSP Firmware, Update to the latest version by going to Settings>Network Update. Locate your router and use it as the network connection.
Download the needed files and update by going to Game>Memory Stick>PSP Update.

Once you finish Update, go to Network>Internet Radio>About Internet radio. It will take you to a website to download the files needed and will install to your Memory Stick.

To put music on your Memory Stick, the Music must be MP3, AAC, M4A or WMA format.
Open your memory stick on your computer by pluggin in a USB cable to your PSP and going to Network>USB Connection or you can put the memory stick in a card reader.
Once in the root of your memory stick, there should be a folder called "Music". Put your music in there or in one more folder inside that. Two folders inside of each other will not be playable.

Place videos in the "Video" folder on the root of your memory stick.
Videos need to be MP4 format. 368X208 Highest MPEG4 Codec, or 480X272 x264 or AVC codec.

How to connect a new psp to the internet

AOSS = Airstation One-touch Secure System

it's a propriatary solution from buffalo technology ( for securely negotiating a wireless link to a base station.

experienced techies may say "big deal." true. but consider the layman who opens their new laptop and wants to link it to their wireless dsl router at home. WEP? AES? TKIP? huh?! enough alphabet soup to scare off the timid.

AOSS removes the user from having to know any of this. it automagically determines and configures the most secure connection. that older laptop that only supports WEP? no problem. AOSS configs the keys. that newer media station in the upstairs bedroom? AOSS will set up everything to use TKIP or AES.

NB- all this requires you have a buffalo tech AOSS wifi router AND a wireless adaptor driver that supports it too.

For connecting the PSP to internet you need a internet connection with wireless router
