    It does come up in the scan, then the next screen I highlight the security setting "WPA-PSK (TKIP)", and then go to the next screen, and it shows "WPA Key" but I can't go up to highlight it, and the only options I have are to "Edit" or "Cancel" and when I "Edit" the keyboard screen comes up. Do I need to do something here?

My psp won't connect to the internet. it says, a commection error has occured. a connection to the access point could not be established. check the security settings for the network and try again.


First of all check if your wireless router requires (WEP KEY) to establish a connection then you will have to put same (WEP KEY) in PSP WLAN security setting and if your wireless router is set without (WEP KEY) then in PSP WLAN security setting it should be set to None. kindly refer to the following image.3782ff8.png

Im trying to download games for my psp but i need the wep key


If you are trying to use someone's wireless Internet access point and don't have their password key, whether they're using WEP or WPA security, you will not be able to connect successfully and go online.

The Wep key is bassically the password to get online.To get the wep key follow my instructions

1. Connect your computer to one of the ports at the back of your router with a DSL cable.

2.Open a web browser and type "http://192.168.1.1/" in the address bar. This will bring up your administration page for your router.

3.Log in by leaving the username blank and use "Admin" for the password. These are the username and password you use if you haven't already set something up previously.
4.Click on the "Wireless" tab at the top of the screen, and then on the "wireless security" tab.
5.Look for the WEP key listed. There might be a few of them, usually three. Use the first one listed. It will be a combination of numbers and letters.

My PSP internet connection not supported to my access point.


The SSID is the NAME of your Routers connection. So you need to know your WiFi connections Name, That's the "Access point" Security, Is IF you assigned a WEP/WAP KEY, when the router was first setup. If NO Key is set, that is what it means "Unsecured",
You need to get a Netgear router manual, for your exact model, it shows all in pictures how to do it.
