      You will need to know the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Also make sure the WAP or wireless router is set to broadcast the SSID; otherwise, the SSID will NOT appear on the PlayStation 3 scan results.
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network (i.e., wireless router) settings.

      If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need to know your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password
      If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings.

      You may need to enter the Media Access Control address (MAC address) of your PlayStation 3 into your WAP if it is required by your network settings.

My usb isnt connecting at all, it just says please wait, and its been like that for a half hour now. It worked before now all of a sudden nothing. Anyone know why?

try going into your system settings on psp and turn off the USB charge, unplug the USB from the PSP ONLY...(Leave USB plugged into computer)
on the PSP go to usb connection and press X. then it should say "please connect a USB cable" then plug it back in. if it still doesn't go after about 10 seconds then plug the other end into a different port on your computer.

How can I connect my alltel internet card to my wii system

Unfortunately you cannot insert your USB modem into your Wii and have it recognized. Your Wii does not have the ability to operate plug and play devices in the way that your lap top does. The Wii needs to be hooked up to a LAN (local area network) via a wireless G connection from a wireless router or wireless capable modem, or hard wired to a modem or router with an ethernet cable (looks like a big phone wire).

There is a way to share your lap tops internet connection using an ethernet switch (depending on your operating system). If this is an option that you wish to explore and you have the necessary hardware, re-post asking how to set up a shared internet connection using a computer as a residential gateway. Depending on your operating system this can be done quite easily. You will need a computer with an internet connection (which you have), a 10/100 Ethernet switch, and two Ethernet cables. A switch is relatively inexpensive and the wires are as well.

I hope that this helps you with your problem.

Good Luck!

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.

as long as you have connected the usb lead and tried in different ports, make sure you are selecting USB Connection in the settings menu on the psp, it should then connect, but some older pc's may not have enough voltage sent to the usb ports to read the psp, if this is so you will need to buy a powered usb hub.
