The access point must have security settings that are NOT COMPATIBLE with the PSP. You need to change the settings of the router (I would go with WEP) and it should work without issue.

Psp keeps saying no access point detected when I have wireless internet 3 feet away


Hi

Make sure your wifi is switched on, on your Psp. It's the little switch on the left hand side of the psp above your memory card slot.

Also check your router settings to make sure your ssid is visible.
If thats ok you may be running an old firmware on your psp which will only work on wep encrypted wifi connections.
Another point to remember is that the Psp will only connect to a network running on 802.11 b. It will not connect to an 'N' or 'G' enabled router. Saying that it will pick up and show a 'G' network it will not allow you to connect though.

How do you get internet on a PSP?


Hi ana01,

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.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
