Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
This is likely because your router may not be wireless, or it may not be broadcasting wi-fi. The reason your computer and XBox work is because they are plugged directly into the router, therefore they don't use a wireless connection.
To check if your router has wi-fi and if it's enabled, look at the lights on it. Above one of the lights there should be a symbol that represents wireless or says wireless on it. If there is not, your router has no wireless capabilities. If there is a light for it, but it's not on, you have wi-fi broadcasting disabled. There is also a third possibility where the network may be hidden if there is a light and it's on.
The only solution that's available if there's no wireless capabilities built into your router is to buy a new one, there's no real way to get it to broadcast if it wasn't meant to.
If there is a wireless light but it's off, go to your router settings page, which can be accessed either by typing 192.168.0.1 into your address bar, or by copying and pasting your IP address into your address bar from here. Once you are looking at your router's settings, you should look for a wireless settings page and enable the option to broadcast wireless from there.

Tips for a great answer:
If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.
Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area.
If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:
The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.
Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.
Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.
Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.
If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.
The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.
There are two things to try:
Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.
Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.
