Did you know you can use your PSP to pick up free
wireless internet? Most people don't even realize this but it's pretty
straightforward once you know how! Sit back and relax while you learn
to get internet on your PSP!
There are a couple of fundamental things you will need before you
can start surfing the web with your PSP. The first is some form of
wireless internet source. It doesn't matter where it comes from, could
be in your home or in your local Starbucks, all that matters is that
you are in an area where you can get internet. Psp wireless settings
follow the 802.11b wireless networking protocols, which are just about
the most common in the world, so most kinds of wireless network
connection will be just fine.
Also note that a copy of Wipeout:Pure is necessary to get internet on your PSP.
Sitting comfortably? Ok, prepare to learn how to get internet on PSP!
Step 1- Switch
on the PSP and go to the System Menu, and then enter "Network
Settings". From there go into "Infrastructure mode", and select a
connection to edit. If you already have a home connection set up or
something, just select this as the one you are going to edit. Leave the
name of the profile as it is, and skip the WLAN settings if they are
already set up.
Step2- Go into "Address Settings" click on
"Custom" and be sure to leave "IP Address Setting" as Automatic.
Believe me; adjusting this will not help you get internet on your PSP!
Step 3- Go
into "DNS Setting" and click on manual. This is where we need to type
the address of the web gateway we will be using. The most popular one
to use for this is the gateway at Endgadget, so input the numbers
"188.8.131.52" as the Primary DNS IP, and put zeros for the Secondary
DNS IP. (0.0.0.0). If for any reason this gateway is not working you
can usually find others with a quick Google search.
Step 4- In
the "Proxy Server" options, select "Do Not Use" All you need to do from
there is confirm everything, and save it all by pushing X when prompted.
Step 5- Launch
Wipeout:Pure as normal, and go into the Downloads menu. When asked to
select a connection, choose the one you have just been editing, and you
should be presented with the Endgadget web screen. Et voila! How to get
internet on PSP!
Provided you have the resource mentioned above,
it's pretty easy to get internet on your PSP. Once you have it all set
up you'll probably wonder how you got by without it!
