Your PSP will detect any wireless wireless network within its range as long as the wireless adapter is switched on. The switch for this is on the left end of the PSP, near the analogue thumbstick. If the switch is in the down position, the wireless network adapter is off; push the switch into the up position and it'll turn it on. If you're not going to be using wireless networking it's a good idea to keep it turned off as it'll make your batteries last longer.

When you turn on your PSP's wireless adapter it'll look for any wireless networks nearby. If there's another PSP within range it'll automatically set up what's called an 'ad-hoc' network between the two. This will enable you to play multiplayer games between the two PSPs with one hosting the game and the other joining it. When you want to join an existing wireless network, such as when you want to browse the internet, you'll be using an 'infrastructure' wireless networking mode.

Pick New Connection and press X. You can give the new Connection a name by pressing X and using the text-entry screen. Give it a descriptive name like 'Home Network' or 'University Network' so you know when and where you can use it. When you've entered the name for your new Connection you'll be asked whether you want to scan for WLAN settings or to enter them manually; select the Scan option and press right on the directional-pad. Your PSP will then scan the area for any available networks and collect the settings needed

A list of available networks (called Access Points) will be displayed, giving its name (called an SSID), whether it's encrypted or not and the signal strength. If there is more than one network, use the D-pad to scroll down to the one you want to join and press X. You'll be asked to confirm the settings so press right on the D-pad to scroll through each. When you get to the security settings, choose the appropriate setting from the list, which is WEP in most cases, and press right on the D-pad again. If you need to enter the WEP key, speak to whoever runs the wireless network and they'll provide it for you. Press X and enter the WEP using the text-entry screen.

Once you've done that you can check the settings you've entered on the final screen and save them. Now you'll be able to connect to the wireless network. If you return to the main home screen you can now update your PSP's software by going to Settings and selecting Network Update. Alternatively you can go to the Network section on the far right of the home screen to browse the internet using the PSP's in-built internet browser. Or you can fire up that multi-player game you've been itching to try out and get going!

    My EA nation connection keeps crashing


    f this issue has been ongoing, I would recommend troubleshooting the network connection.
    Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can take for the network:
    * Disable your Media Server Connection under [Settings] [Network Settings] [Media Server Connection].
    * Power cycle your network devices. Leave both your modem and router unplugged without power for at least a full two minutes.

    After you power cycle, attempt to reconnect to your network with the following steps:
    * Select [Settings] > [Network Settings] > [Internet Connection Settings].
    * Choose [Easy] set up, and then [Wireless Network].
    * [Scan] for your network, then select your network from the list.
    * Press right once you see your network's ID, then ensure that the proper security type is highlighted. Press right again, and then enter your network security key.
    * Press X to save your settings, and then X again to test if your connection is now working.

    * Try positioning your PlayStation3 system closer to the wireless router to enhance the wireless signal.
    * Try updating your router or modem firmware through your computer.
    * If your router has a MAC address filter, please add the MAC address of your PlayStation3 to the accepted list. Your MAC address can be found at [Settings] > [System Settings] > [System Information].
    * You may need to open ports on your router. I've included a link to the port information below, you will need to contact your router manufacturer for support with opening the ports for game play:

    Firewall Port Numbers to Play Games Online
    Article Link: http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/241

    * You may need to connect the PlayStation 3 system directly to your router via an Ethernet cable to increase the signal strength.
    * Finally, try connecting your PlayStation 3 to the Internet in a different network environment (such as a friend's house) to see if you receive better results. If you do, the problem lies with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or router manufacturer.

    When ever i try to connect to the internet my ps3 wont let me connect it lets me find the ip address but wont let me connect to internet


    First try doing a factory reset on your modem/router, and if that doesn't work go into the modem/router's configuration via PC and set your PS3 as a DMZ host. This will put the console outside the firewall. Let me know if that doesn't work and we can troubleshoot some more.

    Good Luck!

    Can not sing in the first time ! I have internet , is my 360 wirless internet connection or do i have to wire it to my modem ?


    Best bet is to wire it directly to your modem, as this has less signal problems then a wireless modem. Also, make sure you troubleshoot your Xbox if it fails to alter any settings you need to. It should auto detect settings. Make sure that your modem's firewall is not blocking your Xbox from accessing the internet.

    Dns error(80710102)


    Hi

    Error 80710102: Cannot connect to the internet.

    This may be caused by inputting the incorrect information when setting up your internet connection. Alternatively or it may be down to internet lag due to congestion with your provider or a weak wireless connection.

    It is advisable to go through and recheck your internet settings. See links on how to do this.

    It could be because of your nat. if you test your connection it will tell you if you have strict or moderate nat. if you do, thta could be why. I had the same problem and all i did was reboot my internet but i've seen other really complicated things to do if that fails.
