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

The PSP, unless you have a hack installed, will not be able to browse sites such as Youtube, Facebook or Twitter because they require flash/java/enhanced memory (this is not the memory stick) it can however use Facebook mobile or Myspace mobile by typing in m.facebook/m.myspace.com.

if this help you please rate me thank you sir....

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.
