Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Problems with my connection

I've been trying to get online with my PSP. I've gotten through most of the hoops, and I think I'm almost there, but this last part stumps me. Whenever I try to go on, and to the experts this may seem like a really stupid question, my system says that my connection's timed out. This probably isn't a problem with my PSP, but all my other internet connections work fine, so I don't know what to do. Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

And by the way, the exact message is "A connection error has occurred. The connection to the access point timed out."

Hi,
your PSPs are attempting to connect to the net, via a wireless connection device. they are timing out for several reasons.
1:- cannot locate or connect to server.
2:- cannot connect or failed to connect to router or modem.
3:- your PSP is firmware version 1.50 ( this does not support a web Browser )
4:- the firewall if applicable, needs to allow the psp access as a trusted device on the network.
These are a few reasons, why your psp will not connect.
There are others, but these are quite significant.
hope this helps any of you.
Mike @ Compurepair.

My PSP online play


If you can play at your brother's house, and your router does not work, and your router is set up correctly, then it IS your router, some of which i've had issues with in the past are just horrible and dont work with certain connections.
