Right, when you get to the screen that says "Scan", "Enter Manually" and "Automatic" do not select Automatic, select Scan.

It will scan for wireless signals and give a list on the next screen. Select your wireless router from the list (it will be the one with the strongest signal strength in case you dont know the SSID)

The next screen is to confirm the SSID. Just press right on the D-Pad

Next it wil ask for WLAN security setting, select "WPA-PSK (TKIP)" and press "X"

Next the screen is to enter your WEP key. Hopefully this is on the sticker on the bottom of your router. Enter this key then continue.

Select "Easy" under address settings

The next screen is to edit your connection name. This can be something like "Home Wireless" or you can leave it as it is.

The next screen should be settings list. Just press right at this point

Then press "X" to save the settings

It will then come up with an option to test connection. Do this just to make sure everything is working ok

That should then complete your connection settings.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

    The reason I have provided this solution is because AOSS is only used by a very few routers.

Im looking for the aoss button on my psp 1000. im trying to hook up a wireless connection.


The "AOSS button" is not in your PSP. It is in the wireless router. You have to press it so you can connect your PSP automatically.

Where is a the AOSS button on a psp?


AOSS is a one touch system on wireless routers, basically if you have a wireless router with AOSS you can simply press and hold a button then connect to the router. You need to press scan and look for a wireless router that way. Here is a good tutorial for connecting to the internet.
hope this helps

AOSS is a wireless solution made by www.buffalotech.com. Most new wireless routers/access points has this capability. AOSS is on the wireless router/access point and not on the PSP.

AOSS will automagically determines and configures the connection of a PSP to a wireless access point by pressing the AOSS button on the wireless access point.

Where is the aoss button help plese?


I'm assuming you are trying to connect to a wireless router, since Aoss is a feature of some routers,but not psp

It's on your router.

And on the PSP

All you do is go to network settings .....Internet connnection settings, select easy, Wireless, Scan, It will find your router and its settings....After you get through the router stuff it will come to WLAN security settings.

How to connect a new psp to the internet


AOSS = Airstation One-touch Secure System

it's a propriatary solution from buffalo technology (www.buffalotech.com) for securely negotiating a wireless link to a base station.

experienced techies may say "big deal." true. but consider the layman who opens their new laptop and wants to link it to their wireless dsl router at home. WEP? AES? TKIP? huh?! enough alphabet soup to scare off the timid.

AOSS removes the user from having to know any of this. it automagically determines and configures the most secure connection. that older laptop that only supports WEP? no problem. AOSS configs the keys. that newer media station in the upstairs bedroom? AOSS will set up everything to use TKIP or AES.

NB- all this requires you have a buffalo tech AOSS wifi router AND a wireless adaptor driver that supports it too.

For connecting the PSP to internet you need a internet connection with wireless router

Can't find AOSS Button in psp


you are doing it in the wrong menu. you are setting up a connection to location free player

you need a wireless connection. And so after that, you go to the internet icon,and then you just type in your link.

1. Go to the Main Menu of your PSP.

2. Go to Settings.

3. Scroll down to Network Settings and Press the X button.

4. Select Infrastructure Mode.

5. Select New Connection.

6. Name the connection so that you know it is for web browsing. (ex. WebConnect)
That way you can use another connection for the rest of your online games.

7. Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

8. Select the Scan option and let it pick up your WLAN settings.

9. Once it picks up a connect, Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

10. Select Custom for the Address Settings.

11. Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

12. Leave IP Address Setting on Automatic.

13. Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

14. Select Manual for your DNS Setting.

15. Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

16. Enter in 67.171.70.72 as your Primary DNS and just leave the Secondary DNS blank.

17. Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

18. Select "Do Not Use" for your Proxy Server settings.

19. Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

20. Push the Right Direction Key to go to the next menu.

21. Push the X button to save your settings.

22. Do a quick test of the connection to make sure it's working correctly. first you need to have a wireless internet at home. next you need to turn on the wlan on your psp, located at the left side corner of your psp. search for a wlan around you. if its not secured, your lucky, you can connect anytime, but if it has a wep key, you need to find out the key to be able to connect. Switch the wlan button (located on the left side) to on and if don't aoss router seperate from the psp you cannot use automatic. So goto new connection and press scan. Follow on screen instructions.
If you do have an aoss router press button on the aoss router inself so the psp can find it.



Okay now that ive given you your answer make sure to follow fixya's system. Instead of taking the answer and running.


THANK YOU,
