Connecting to the internet using your psp is almost the same as connecting through your laptop. If you're having connectivity issue please try to check the error. One of the common error is WLAN switch is off, so make sure that it's properly toggled to the right. If you've already checked and still can't connect try doing the following steps below:
1. Make sure to turn on your PSP as well as the wireless/WLAN switch.
2. Then Navigate to " Network Setting".
3. Select "Infrastructure Mode".
4. Now Select "New Connection" and Name this connection.
5. Navigate to "WLAN Settings" Select "Scan".
6. Your router should now be listed.
7. Please go to "WLAN Security Setting". If you did not select encryption in ROUTER SET-UP, then leave the option as "None".
8. But if you selected encryption in ROUTER SET-UP, then select the appropriate WEP, or WPA.
9. Then navigate to "Address Settings". Select "Easy".
10. Go to "Setting List". Verify that your settings are correct.
11. Navigate to the next screen and press X to save your settings. You should get a message that says "Save Completed. Test Connection". Press X.
12. You should get two quick display messages. The first should say "connecting to access point." The next should say "obtaining IP address".
From this point you already established a connection.
Hope this information will be helpful.

Connecting your PSP to the internet is just like connecting your computer to a router. First to consider is having an access point. So what is an access point? Access point is your router. If you wanted to get started going online using your PSP I suggest trying the following steps below:
1. Just turn on your PSP as well as your WLAN/wiresless.
2. Use the left and right directional button to find "Network Setting".
3. Now look for "Infrastracture Mode".
4. Please select "New Connection" and name it.
5. Go to "WLAN Settings" then select "Scan".
6. Your PSP will now detect your router.
7. Navigate to "WLAN security setting". Just leave the option "NONE", If you dont have an encryption in your Router set up.
8. But if have an encryption in your Router. Then put your WEP or WPA security key.
9. Go to "Address Settings". Select "Easy".
10. Navigate to "Setting List". Check if your setting is correct.
11. Go to the next page then save your setting by pressing x. Then press x again once you get a message that says "Save Completed. Test Connection".
12. Next message would say "connecting to access point." The next should say "obtaining IP address".
You already established a connection and you can now browse the net using your PSP.
The SSID is the NAME of your Routers connection. So you need to know your WiFi connections Name, That's the "Access point" Security, Is IF you assigned a WEP/WAP KEY, when the router was first setup. If NO Key is set, that is what it means "Unsecured",
You need to get a Netgear router manual, for your exact model, it shows all in pictures how to do it.
follow this steps: Connect your DSL modem to your wireless router. Take an Ethernet cable and connect it from the "Out" port from the DSL modem into the "In" port of the wireless modem. Turn both the modem and router on and let them connect to each other. Step
Turn on your Sony PSP by sliding the power button up until the PSP screen turns on. Navigate to the "Settings" part of the PSP menu. All of the settings are located on the left side of the PSP menu. At the bottom of the PSP settings menu is an option named "Network Settings." Select that. Step
Select "Infrastructure Mode" and then "New Connection" from the next screen. Select the "Scan" option and your PSP will look for the nearest wireless connections. Select your router from the list. Your router will be the strongest signal available, and will match the name of the router manufacturer. Step
Select "Easy" on the next page for the "Address Settings" and save the settings. Press the "X" button to test your connection, and you will connect to the access point. Press the "O" button to exit the settings menu. You are now connected to the Internet with your DSL modem.
