Ok, the wlan swith is either on the top of psp if u have da slim if you have the old version then its o the side. the ssid is the name of ur internet connection ex.(linksys etc.) and some of the connections are either secured or unsecured. the secured connectipoons require passwerd. if you have a wireless router then scan 4 a connection and look 4 urs and connect.

Why my psps is slow


Is the PSP an older model? If so, its processor could be having trouble with the newer games. If this is an internet related problem, It is due to the fact the PSP has poor WIFI in the older models. Also for internet related problems, make sure that your PSP is connected to your Wireless Router rather than a PS3 system's internet because that can also cause the WIFI on the PSP to run slower.

Internet Connection could simply be poor. Check your Wireless Router. Hope this helps.

I GUESS i need a wireless router or something to set up my internet on my psp.can any one tell me what it is and why i need one. also can some whone tell me where to get one?


Yes you do. A wireless router takes the internet that is sent by your cable or dsl model and broadcasts it wirelessly within a range. The image below is a little clearer that words. The PSP does not have a plug for you to plug in your cable modem into -- but it does have a wireless card built into it [wifi]. So you need the wireless router to broadcast the internet to it:

I need help connecting to the internet with my psp


Connecting the PSP to the internet is pretty easy once you get all your settings in place. Here’s how to connect the psp to the Internet. You will need a wireless router in order to connect the PSP to the internet or you could “borrow” your neighbours wireless access although it’s better to have your own. Wireless routers are very cheap nowadays you could find a good one for about 30 for 50 bucks.
  • With your Psp turned on go to the “Settings” in the menu (scroll to the left)
  • Scroll all the way down until you have reached “Network Settings” and click the “X” button to enter
  • Select “Infrastructure Mode” and hit “X”
  • Select “New Connection” and hit the X button again
  • Now you will have a number of options for connecting to a wireless connection. Choose “Scan” and press the control pad to the left, the PSP will now scan for wifi signals around your area
  • When the PSP finishes scanning you will probably have a few different wifi connections. SSID is the name of the connection, the Security column tells you whether or not the connection is password protected, and the last one is the signal strength the higher the better
  • If you want to borrow your neighbors unprotected wifi select a connection with “None” in the Security column and a strong signal. If you want to use a secure wifi than you will need to know the password. Select one and press the X button
  • Now the Psp will confirm your settings proceed by pressing left on the d-pad and save your settings
  • Now test your connection if you are able to connect, awesome. If you were not able to connect try doing the settings again
  • With the connection settings in place we can now connect the PSP to the internet. In the home menu scroll all the to the left until you have reached “Network” and go down to “Internet Browser” and hit “X”
  • Your browser will appear, select the little square box to enter the web address, play around with the different options. Have fun with your PSP online

How do i play my psp online with people around the world


Ok, first the game must be a infrastructure permitting game (NOT AD-HOC), meaning it lets you use wifi to connect to the internet to play online.

Next you need Internet that is wifi enabled, in other words you will need a Router, which makes your internet wireless(wifi), I recommend a Netgear or Belkin Router.

Then, you will need to go to Network settings on your psp, infrastructure, Select "easy" if given the choice,and find your Router's SSID, which is basically a signal that your router sends out to be connected to. Input any password that you MAY have put on the router. If not dont worry about that. Hit next on everything else that appears on screen and save the settings and test connection (If you get an error you did something wrong).

Once complete, enter your game, enter Online, or Multiplayer or what ever it may say and select infrastructure, or it may bring you directly to the Network connections screen, select your Router's connection and have fun.

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!

IP adress dosent work.


You need to match the security settings on the Wifi router. I do not know what security is set up on your Wifi, so I cannot accurately solve this problem. I have my router set to WEP with a passcode. On the PSP, I tell the network setup that the wifi is WEP and put in a passcode to match the Wifi routers security. If you have the passcode wrong, the IP address part will fail. Just find out the security type and passcode, then set up the PSP's network connection to match.

How to get internet on my psp


Look its not necessary get internet on ur psp. Its how to connect to the internet on the psp. You are gonna need a wireless internet network. Usually at food restaurants, or at ur house. Its not like you can connect the psp with a cable to the internet. Its all wireless hottie262477. To find wireless go all the way to your left on the psp and turn on the wifi button. Then go ur settings and all the way down to network settings. From there click on infracture mode. And scan for wireless hotspots. Of course any wireless one that says it needs a wep code. Means that it has a password and if you don't know the password you can't necessarily access it. So use the no password hotspots. Also remember its very easy to connect a wireless network in your house as long as u have high speed internet. Now that you this u can enjoy ur psp and play online and use the web browser. Good luck Diego :-)
