I just bought my PSP and for some reason cannot access the internet with my PSP even when I sit right next to my home computer with internet access and have 100% signal strength. When I try to access it, it will search for the IP address and then give me this message: "A conection error has occured. The atempt to obtain the IP address timed out" I checked the Sony PSP manual and everthing is set up correctly according to the troubleshooting section. I am not sure what the problem is. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ben
The problem is common, you need to set up the psp manually and not let it obtain an ip address automatically. the easiest way is to find either your router ip address or your pc's ip address e.g if your routers ip address is 192.168.2.1, then your pc's allocated address will be 192.168.2.2, so set your psp address to 192.168.2.3. you will also need to set the gateway address, this is your routers ip address(the one you type in your browser to get into the routers settings).e.g 192.168.2.1. the DNS setting will be 255.255.255.0, all other address settings required will be the routers ip address eg 192.168.2.1.
