If you just bought a new router, odds are it's working in "N" mode, and maybe G mode too. The PSP's don't use those. They use B mode only. Plus they only support WEP encryption, not the more effective types.
You'll need to go into the router setup, see your instructions, and activate B mode. Also setup WEP for your encryption method.

How can i get my SSID of my PSP?


Well the SSID isn't given by the PSP.
A SSID is given by the router, which the PSP connects to or otherwise known as your Router name.
By default your router should be showing its SSID publicly so nothing to do there.
On your PSP scan for wifi networks to connect to in the list of access points you'll see names under SSID.
Select and connect and enter the security key of your router if needed.
