Re: I cannot connect to the router. What else can I try?
The wireless router UI can be accessed from a wireless client. From what you have described, you should have been able to enter the UI. First, uncheck "Automatically Detect Setting" thus leaving all boxes in the "Connections" tab unchecked. This will force IE to find a connection without looking for a proxy. If having trouble accessing the UI, try entering in :88 after entering the router's internal IP in the address bar (192.168.2.1:88). This will tell the browser to use port 88. If that does not work, power down the router for 30 seconds and power it back up. Renew the IP adapter setting on the PC (as a precaution) and verify the IP address is 192.168.2.xx. You should be able to access the UI.

They can only be used to repeat a wireless signal if they are connected to the wired infrastructure. You will will need a wireless bridge or mesh access point or similar to extend the network using just a wireless signal.

Question: What is infrastructure mode in wireless networking?
Answer: Infrastructure mode wireless networking bridges (joins) a wireless network to a wired Ethernet network. Infrastructure mode wireless also supports central connection points for WLAN clients.
A wireless access point (AP) is required for infrastructure mode wireless networking. To join the WLAN, the AP and all wireless clients must be configured to use the same SSID. The AP is then cabled to the wired network to allow wireless clients access to, for example, Internet connections or printers. Additional APs can be added to the WLAN to increase the reach of the infrastructure and support any number of wireless clients.
Compared to the alternative, ad-hoc wireless networks, infrastructure mode networks offer the advantage of scalability, centralized security management and improved reach. The disadvantage of infrastructure wireless networks is simply the additional cost to purchase AP hardware.
Note that home wireless routers all feature a built-in AP to support infrastructure mode.
Infrastructure mode just means that you're connecting to a router as opposed to a computer to computer connection (or device-computer/device). Since it is a router it doesn't have ad-hoc and infrastructure modes.
What exactly are you trying to do? If you want to connect a pc/device to your network, then just find the network and connect, you'll be in infrastructure mode.
this may be alot of info to try and work through but if you actually did the step by step its pretty easy.. so lets get on with it...
your psps wifi is already active. you just have to find the access point to get online. 1st question. do you have wireless internet connection at home or is it wired. meaning this..... in your home internet setup you have a wire that comes into your home>that is connected to a modem>that is connected to a router that is wireless or wired router... in a wireless setup the computer(s) communicate with the router without any cables also know as wi-fi.
if your computer(s) uses wires/cables to connect to your router or a modem then you don't have wi-fi access zone meaning you won't be able to log online with your psp.
now with that out of the way if your home is set up for wi-fi you can set up your psp easily. but you would have to know few things about your internet setup
*NOTE* BEFORE WE START LETS MAKE SURE YOUR WLAN BUTTON ON YOUR PSP IS ON. LOOK ON THE TOP OF YOU PSP NEXT TO WHERE YOU PLUG IN THE CHARGER CABLE... THERE IS A WLAN SWITCH... SLIDE IT TO THE DIRECTION OF ARROW
1)on your psp go to settings 2)go to network settings you'll get 2 options. adhoc mode and infrastructure mode. adhoc is for playing games with your friends by directly communicating between psp. infrastructure mode is where you go online using an access point i.e. wireless router or business that offer free wi-fi 3)click on infrastructure 4)click on new connection which will bring you to WLAN SETTINGS screen 5)click on scan it will show you 3 or 4 access point. always use the one with the highest signal.
this is where you have to know something about the setup of your own internet.
SSID is service set i.d. -- it is just a name you give your home network when you set it up. i.e. jones, or myhome, or whatever u called it..
6)on the next screen is where u put in the SSID. so ask whoever set up your home network to see what they set it up as.
on the next screen is the WLAN security setting which is another way of saying password. again ask the person who set up your home network what this is. some people have not set up a password so this step could be easy. if this is the case with yours just click on "none" but if you have a password set up on your home network click on one of the other three (wep, wpa-psk (tkip) or wpa-psk (aes)). in my home i have it set up as wpa-psk (tkip) so i click that one. when i do it'll take me to WPA KEY...again another word for password
7)so put in WPA key (password) of your network once that is done go to the next screen which will be address setting
8)click on easy to make it easy
9)enter the connection name... you can call it whatever u want.... if you go out alot to the different fastfoods and coffee houses you can set it each one of them with their name. for example if you set up your psp to be able to access wi-fi at mcdonalds you can name it mcd. and another for starbucks if you set up your psp to access their wi-fi, and another for library...so on and etc.... 10) on the next screen is where you double check all the info you put in 11) and finally to save your settings.
after that click on "test connection" and if you set it all up correctly you get a page that shows you your connection info. if not it'll be on connecting to access point, obtaining i.p. address. if it stays on this screen for longer than few minutes or you get time out message something is not set up right. and you should retry the steps.
if you don't know your network settings one easier way of trying out your wi-fi is go to one of the local fastfood or coffee houses or library or book store that offer free wi-fi to test it out. just follow the steps
1)on your psp go to settings
2)go to network settings
you'll get 2 options. adhoc mode and infrastructure mode. adhoc is for
playing games with your friends by directly communicating between psp.
infrastructure mode is where you go online using an access point i.e.
wireless router or business that offer free wi-fi
3)click on infrastructure
4)click on new connection
which will bring you to WLAN SETTINGS screen
5)click on scan
it will show you 3 or 4 access point. always use the one with the
6)the highest signal will be the access point for the store u are in. click on it and it should bring you to the stores policy page and after clicking agree you should be good to go.
hope this helps... could get/look complicated but it really isn't
Step1 – Go to Settings and then select Network settings Step2 – Select Infrastructure Mode and start a [New Connection]. By setting up in Infrastructure Mode, you will be able to take advantage of the more exciting features of the PSP, such as browsing the Internet and playing games online with your friends. Step3 – Access the WLAN Settings and select scan to search for an SSID of nearby access points. If you find more than one access point, simply connect to the one with the strongest signal. Step4 – Once an SSID is found, select it (make sure you don’t rename it) and move to the WLAN Security Settings. You should note that if the access point is using WEP encryption, you will need to enter the WEP key manually (when the access point is detected, it will display the type of encryption it is running. WEP key should be displayed on your router. If it displays none, simply move onto the next step. Step5 – Now you have a couple of choices of either Easy or Custom in Address Settings menu. I suggest you selecting the Easy option which will complete the Infrastructure Mode set-up automatically. Step6 – Choose your Connection Name and enter it. A Setting List will be displayed. Press x button to save settings. Step7 – Test Connection to make sure everything works. If all is okay, Network Settings will display Connection Name, Signal Strength, SSID, BSSID, Channel, Security and IP Address. In a nutshell there we are, 7 simple steps to connect your PSP to the internet using a wireless router to enable you to start surfing the internet, playing games online with friends, exchanging pictures and downloading your favourite RSS channels.
Check the Router that the laptop is connected to if it is properly setup for internet connectivity, if it is not reset the router and leave it as default and pulg the internet cable to it and see if it will browse?
Ok, first the game must be a infrastructure permitting game (NOT AD-HOC), meaning it lets you use wifi to connect to the internet to play online.
Next you need Internet that is wifi enabled, in other words you will need a Router, which makes your internet wireless(wifi), I recommend a Netgear or Belkin Router.
Then, you will need to go to Network settings on your psp, infrastructure, Select "easy" if given the choice,and find your Router's SSID, which is basically a signal that your router sends out to be connected to. Input any password that you MAY have put on the router. If not dont worry about that. Hit next on everything else that appears on screen and save the settings and test connection (If you get an error you did something wrong).
Once complete, enter your game, enter Online, or Multiplayer or what ever it may say and select infrastructure, or it may bring you directly to the Network connections screen, select your Router's connection and have fun.
Anything is possible but it would take a lot of work to jam wireless signals. As a communications company, Verizon, if caught would be in hot water with the FCC. I have an idea. Are you able to change channels on your wireless and try it. Also, is there anyway you could try a different wireless router? If FIOS is coming in, there may be maintenance changes in the infrastructure that effect your internet performance.
First, you must be in range of a Wifi hotspot, Once in range of the hotspot, go to "Settings"
menu, >> "Network Settings" and press "X" Button. Select
"Infrastructure Mode" or "Ad Hoc Mode" and press X Button. Set up the
"New Connection". follow onscreen instruction.
