From what I have heard about PSP's, they are very difficult to install to the internet. Honestly, I would only trust the support team of sony to help you. If the PSP is working with online compatibilities, than you should be just fine.

Internet


- Make sure that your PSP WLAN switch is turned on!

Where's your PSP manual?

OK here, I'll go through all steps to get to use the net on ya PSP!

PSP on...? Check...
WLAN switch on & working properly? Check...

Now...

go to Network > Enter Internet Browser > You probably don't have your net on 'Auto-Select' or have set a 'Home Page Setting', so enter a URL in the Address Bar > it'll then come up with 'Network Connection', 'Select connection', enter '[New Connection]' > 'WLAN Settings', enter Scan, probably the easiest for you > 'Select the access point to be used'. Select your home access point > 'SSID', name correct?, press right arrow button to continue > 'WLAN Security Setting'. Select the correct one if incorrect. If you need a PW for your connection, WEP, WPA Key, then enter it, if not, enter None > 'Address Settings', enter Custom > 'IP Address Setting', enter Automatic > 'DNS Setting', Automatic > 'Proxy Server', don't think you need that!, enter Do Not Use > 'Internet Browser', Start > 'Enter the connection name.', name it what you what it to be > 'Setting List', scroll through to see if everything's correct > 'Press the O/X button to save settings.' > Now it'll appear on the 'Select connection' page again. This time, click on your home connection... DONE!

- I suggest you to save say Google as your Home Page, so it'll be more convenient for you on the future! Tools > Settings > Home Page Settings > type in a URL that you want as your Home Page!
- PSP net have very little net memory, so to save some memory, go to Tools > Settings > View Settings > Conserve Memory On.

Don't forget to thank me! Thank me by rating me positively, & 'Was this Useful', YES! XD =)

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!

Problems with my connection


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.

Help with internet


PSP works with an advanced wireless enabled option and the only way is possible is by been close to a wireless network connection like a WiFi when you are on a proximity of one of this you can ask the PSP to search for the signal and if the network is not password protected you can access the internet with no problem.
