To connect psp to internet yes you should have a wireless connection.To add movies you can download to your computer then transfer to psp through usb cord.If you don't use a special program I recommend psp video 9 which is a free download,it will convert all movie to .mp4 format and transfer straight to psp with a few clicks.

I have a Sony bluray with built-in WiFi and I show I have internet connection, but when I try to watch Netflix I get a message stating not connected and invalid information and data. Is there a step or...


Are you using wifi connection, or hard wire? If you are using wireless, there is a possibility that, while you can connect to the router, the router it's self is not connected to the internet. Please check if your router has internet access, then, if you are using wifi, I would suggest hard wiring directly to your isp's modem using a "cat5" or Ethernet wire. Less lag streaming movies, and while playing games. And wired connection will always be faster than wifi.

How can we connect to the internet if we don't have a usb cord


You need to connect using a Wireless Access Point, or Wifi internet connection.

If you have a home wireless network, you can use that.

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!

When i try to download final fantasy 7 from psone classics on psp network the connection keeps timing out.


Since the PSP uses WiFi, try a different WiFi source and see if that helps.

Does the PSP even connect to the internet through its WiFi?

A Timing Out Connection usually means there is a problem with the settings that connect you to the internet.

Update


im sorry but you might have to be a bit more specific. I dont think u can update a ds game. and u cant connect it to the computer. the possible putcome i gathered from that is that he wants to play his game online and trade pokemon etc. meaning u need to connect the ds to your computer wirelessly using a
-nintendo wi-fi usb connector-( a usb drive u basically plug into ur computer and gives off internet for nintendo products) or a -wireless router or modem- ( the black box that the cables go through for internet).

When your grandson plays the game and wants to go online, (i will explain how to use this using directions in the game)
1. turn on the ds and load the game
2. watch the introduction movie (shiny pokemon)
3. on the main screen where you decide to either continue, new game, or -NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS-, go to nintendo wfc settings
4.tap the blue box labelled nintendo wi-fi connection settings
5.if ur using a Wi-fi usb tap connect to wifi usb or if using wireless internet tap a blank connection square
6. follow the prompts for the wifi usb and u will be connected to the internet
7. for wireless internet, tap search for an access point
8. when it has found the wireless internet tap O.K/connect/next etc and follow the prompts
9.when thats connected return to pokemon Diamond main screen then tap new game/continue to play
10. walk to the pokemon centre and go downstairs to battle online - or go into a house in
(Jublife city?) to trade pokemon online

WOAH!! that was a lot of writing!
hope i helped plz make a comment or something if u need my help again

Hi PrincessDi,

The PSP can only connect to the internet through WIFI.  You can ride around to find a hot spot, or go to an internet cafe'.  I can go to the big sity nearby on main street and always pick up a hotspot. Run network connection to setup the wifi and connect.  In your home you will need internet, and a router setup to broudcast Wifi.  The USB port on your PSP is for loading up stuff like music Video and games.  You could go online on your computer and go to www.playstation.com and download Music,Video, Wallpapers, Screenshots, and trial Games. Then hook up your PSP through the USB connection to load whatever you downloaded on your computer to the MagicGate Card in your PSP.  WWW.Playstation.com also has the manual you can download under PSP and Support.
