How do i set up my router msi


Is that a standalone router or a modem/router combination ? If it is a standalone router, in order to set up a home network to access the Internet, you need a modem (cable modem or DSL modem) which must be given to you by your Internet provider when you subscribe for Internet service. Your Internet provider has to provide instructions on how to set up your modem. A modem acts as a router too and has a WLAN port and a number of LAN ports (between 1 and 4). The WLAN port is where you hook up your modem to the Internet using an Ethernet cable. One end of the Ethernet cable goes into WLAN port of the modem/router and the other end goes either into a cable outlet (if your Internet provider is a cable company such as Comcast) or a phone jack if your Internet provider is a phone company such as AT&T or Verizon). To connect your desktop computer to the Internet, you plug it in any of the LAN ports on the modem/router. Contact your Internet provider for set up instructions for your specific brand and type of modem.

Hope this helps.

How do you get internet on a PSP?


Hi ana01,

Connecting your PSP to the internet is just like connecting your computer to a router. First to consider is having an access point. So what is an access point? Access point is your router. If you wanted to get started going online using your PSP I suggest trying the following steps below:

1. Just turn on your PSP as well as your WLAN/wiresless.

2. Use the left and right directional button to find "Network Setting".

3. Now look for "Infrastracture Mode".

4. Please select "New Connection" and name it.

5. Go to "WLAN Settings" then select "Scan".

6. Your PSP will now detect your router.

7. Navigate to "WLAN security setting". Just leave the option "NONE", If you dont have an encryption in your Router set up.

8. But if have an encryption in your Router. Then put your WEP or WPA security key.

9. Go to "Address Settings". Select "Easy".

10. Navigate to "Setting List". Check if your setting is correct.

11. Go to the next page then save your setting by pressing x. Then press x again once you get a message that says "Save Completed. Test Connection".

12. Next message would say "connecting to access point." The next should say "obtaining IP address".

You already established a connection and you can now browse the net using your PSP.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Wifi problem


this may be alot of info to try and work through but if you actually did the step by step its pretty easy.. so lets get on with it...

your psps wifi is already active. you just have to find the access point to get online. 1st question. do you have wireless internet connection at home or is it wired. meaning this..... in your home internet setup you have a wire that comes into your home>that is connected to a modem>that is connected to a router that is wireless or wired router... in a wireless setup the computer(s) communicate with the router without any cables also know as wi-fi.

if your computer(s) uses wires/cables to connect to your router or a modem then you don't have wi-fi access zone meaning you won't be able to log online with your psp.

now with that out of the way if your home is set up for wi-fi you can set up your psp easily. but you would have to know few things about your internet setup

*NOTE* BEFORE WE START LETS MAKE SURE YOUR WLAN BUTTON ON YOUR PSP IS ON. LOOK ON THE TOP OF YOU PSP NEXT TO WHERE YOU PLUG IN THE CHARGER CABLE... THERE IS A WLAN SWITCH... SLIDE IT TO THE DIRECTION OF ARROW

1)on your psp go to settings
2)go to network settings
you'll get 2 options. adhoc mode and infrastructure mode. adhoc is for playing games with your friends by directly communicating between psp. infrastructure mode is where you go online using an access point i.e. wireless router or business that offer free wi-fi
3)click on infrastructure
4)click on new connection
which will bring you to WLAN SETTINGS screen
5)click on scan
it will show you 3 or 4 access point. always use the one with the highest signal.

this is where you have to know something about the setup of your own internet.

SSID is service set i.d. -- it is just a name you give your home network when you set it up. i.e. jones, or myhome, or whatever u called it..

6)on the next screen is where u put in the SSID. so ask whoever set up your home network to see what they set it up as.

on the next screen is the WLAN security setting which is another way of saying password. again ask the person who set up your home network what this is. some people have not set up a password so this step could be easy. if this is the case with yours just click on "none" but if you have a password set up on your home network click on one of the other three (wep, wpa-psk (tkip) or wpa-psk (aes)). in my home i have it set up as wpa-psk (tkip) so i click that one. when i do it'll take me to WPA KEY...again another word for password

7)so put in WPA key (password) of your network
once that is done go to the next screen which will be address setting

8)click on easy to make it easy

9)enter the connection name... you can call it whatever u want.... if you go out alot to the different fastfoods and coffee houses you can set it each one of them with their name. for example if you set up your psp to be able to access wi-fi at mcdonalds you can name it mcd. and another for starbucks if you set up your psp to access their wi-fi, and another for library...so on and etc....
10) on the next screen is where you double check all the info you put in
11) and finally to save your settings.

after that click on "test connection" and if you set it all up correctly you get a page that shows you your connection info. if not it'll be on connecting to access point, obtaining i.p. address. if it stays on this screen for longer than few minutes or you get time out message something is not set up right. and you should retry the steps.

if you don't know your network settings one easier way of trying out your wi-fi is go to one of the local fastfood or coffee houses or library or book store that offer free wi-fi to test it out. just follow the steps

1)on your psp go to settings
2)go to network settings
you'll get 2 options. adhoc mode and infrastructure mode. adhoc is for playing games with your friends by directly communicating between psp. infrastructure mode is where you go online using an access point i.e. wireless router or business that offer free wi-fi
3)click on infrastructure
4)click on new connection
which will bring you to WLAN SETTINGS screen
5)click on scan
it will show you 3 or 4 access point. always use the one with the highest signal.
6)the highest signal will be the access point for the store u are in. click on it and it should bring you to the stores policy page and after clicking agree you should be good to go.

hope this helps... could get/look complicated but it really isn't

How can i take internet in my psp


The PSP is more than a gaming platform. It has WiFi connectivity, and that means that setting up PSP Internet is possible, just like on any computer. The WiFi feature is intended primarily to be used for upgrading software and for downloading games. But you can go several steps further than that, and it isn't difficult to do either.
You need to have access to an Internet connection first and foremost. This can either be at home where you really need a wireless router, or use you can try accessing a public WiFi hotspot like your local Starbucks or wherever.
The most common home set up is an Ethernet cable running from the computer to the DSL or cable modem, which in turn is connected to the telephone line. By installing a wireless router between the computer and the DSL or cable modem, you should be able to connect your PSP to the Internet too.
Of course, setting up PSP Internet isn't just as easy as that! And if you don't have a home Internet connection of any kind, then you'll have to find a WiFi access point that will allow you to connect. This should be reasonably easy in most medium to big cities. But if you live in a small one-horse town way back in the sticks, then maybe, maybe not.
The PSP also needs WiFi access that is the 802.121b wireless networking protocol.
Hmmm... I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, that's it! Way too technical for me! But hold on, it isn't.
This protocol is, thankfully, the world's most popular one. So the chances are excellent that if you find a suitable public WiFi access point, it will be the good old 802.121b wireless networking protocol.
Most people find problems when they come to the more technical bits. Finding the Network Settings, choosing a New Connection, making sure it's Infrastructure Mode - it's all too much for many who try it. Then there's the WLAN Settings to access, a scan to implement for an SSID of any access points nearby, hoping it's not using WEP encryption!
Time to think again...
This isn't rocket science, though some may think it is.
You need, in this order:
1. To have some kind of a proven Internet connection.
2. Select the Infrastructure Mode in Network Settings and start a New Connection.
3. Access the WLAN Settings and initiate a scan to search for suitable access points.
4. Select a suitable access point that is not encrypted.
5. Test the Connection and enjoy!
