Warning: do not use firmware other then placed on Sony PlayStation's official site. For it might damage your system and it will never boot again. Also make sure the battery is fully charged (a charge of 50% will not do, the update utilty won't allow the update). Since it can take an few minutes you best connect it to it's power supply.
NEVER interupt an update by shutting your unit down, removing battery, removing stick, removing power. The damage done is not covered by Sony's warranty.
About the issue for the connection with your PS3 unit. It's true, you need one of the most recent firmwares.

if it is saying DNS error it is not a problem with the PSP, most likely a setting with your wireless router. or a problem with teh internet at the time of trying. check wireless settings on the PSP and make sure it has a number listed for DNS server.
i can assist you with this.
Take out the UMD disc from the back of the PSP if one is inserted.
Take out your memory card from the memory card reader if one is inserted.
Turn on your PSP.
Go to the "Settings" tab in the Cross Media Bar and select "System Settings."
Select "Restore Default Settings" and confirm that you wish to restore all settings to the factory defaults.
Restart your PSP.
Try connecting to the Internet again. If you still get the 80410A0b error, try connecting to another network. If you successfully establish a connection to another network, your router is at fault. If you cannot connect to the second network, your PSP's Wi-Fi card could be damaged and may need repairs.
Tips & Warnings
Ensure that you are entering the Wi-Fi SSID and password correctly on the PSP.
You can contact PlayStation Support (see Resources) to start a repair order if you PSP's Wi-Fi card is faulty.
if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. Thanks
Finally the DNS problems I had with connecting my PS3 to my network has been resolved.
I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error.
The way this was resolved for me (and I know someone else mentioned it in an other post here), was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. Voila... I am upgrading my PS3 software as I write this....
..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP..
ok solution: click inafacture mode in network settings. new connection > scan > now look for internet wchich has no security > choose it > then click left arrow > then choose easy and go to the save settings, save,test connection. IT WILL SAY YOUR INFO AT THE END AND THEN YOU CLICK CIRCLE GO TO INTERNET BROWSER AND ENJOY IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG TRY AGAIN IN DIFFERENT PLACES. it should work. enjoy internet
I don't think the problem is with your PSP. It may be you router (Internet connction). Have you tried unplugging your router and plugging it back in after a minute? That usually does the trick for me when my PSP is having trouble getting on the net.
