PSP WLAN SETTINGS

First i go to network update, select new connection and when scaning for an access points in my wlan settings, it always comes up "no access points were detected.do you want to try again?". I can not get on the web because of that.Anyone knows what to do?.

My first suggestion would be

My first suggestion would be to input the SSID of your WLAN manually. If the SSID broadcast is disabled on your router, then the scan will not find the network.

Another suggestion... Are

Another suggestion... Are you sure that the wireless LAN is actually up? Do you have another device that confirms it's existence? Have you cycled the wireless router / access point, to make sure that it's not in some funky state?

Can someone tell me how to

Can someone tell me how to find my "SSID" number and how to find if my WLAN security settings is None, WEP, or WPA-PSK (TKIP), also my Address Settings is either "Easy" or "Custom" and thats it so I can use the internet. Smile

If you log in to your

If you log in to your wireless router's or access points menu, you'll be able to look up the given SSID name. You'll also be able to determine what form of encryption it's currently set to use, but most routers obscure the key. If you don't know what it is, you should be able to change it in the menu.

On network connections when select profile it say that aconnection error has occurred. It tells me that the WLAN switch is not turned on. Also is there something that goes in the SSID box. Your help will be greatly appericated.
Thankyou PSP, Owner Billy

Well, first of all, you have

Well, first of all, you have to be near a wireless router. Try going to a coffee shop that offers wireless internet or the library, then scan for access points. The available connections will show up, and you should just choose the one with the highest percentage or the one without encryption (unless you know the password for the encrypted ones).

The WLAN function of the PSP only works like a cordless phone, it needs the base station (wireless router connected to the web); not like a cell phone that works anywhere.

I currently have the same

I currently have the same problem with the new PSP-2000 model. I have 4 other PSP2000 models connected to the same wireless network.. I have not resolved the problem as yet. However, as a first step check the following

(i) WAN switch is ON (you will know its on as it will blink when searching for WiFi availability)
(ii) Check SSID broadcast is set to ON on your router. If not set to ON, it will not broadcast the SSID. HOwever, if you know the SSID (usually a name), type it in EXACTLY in the manual setup.
(iii) make sure your wifi router is all setup.

When i find a solution to the problem, i will repost and update. I bought the new one to have access to play movies on the LCD, however, they neglected to tell one that not all the same switches/connectors are in the same place, so you will find that some of the accessories and docking stations for the old PSP2000 will not work on the new one.

What the hell are you talking

What the hell are you talking about? Do you want to use someone else's memory stick and play their games on your PSP? Do you have Custom Firmware, like 4.01m33? 5.00m33? Otherwise, no you can't. Unless your friend downloaded the game from the online playstation store, then they're using ISO/CSO's which require Custom Firmware.

Do you know what google is? How it works? There are literally MILLIONS of articles on this very subject. Why not do your own research, like the rest of us.

To all those have connection

To all those have connection problems with PSP to wireless networks. I recently upgraded router to N series and had countless problems being able to see and/or connect to network.. intermittently working etc.. the SOLUTION was to set the encryption to to WPA-PSK and not the WPA2-PSK. The WPA2 encryption was the cause of all connectivity problems including PS3.

So if you are having probs.. give it a whirl.

.. that was the WPA

.. that was the WPA encryption on the ROUTER.. be sure to NOT set it to WPA2.

That's a great tip Ken! Many probably don't know that the PS3 and PSP are not WPA2 friendly. So from your experience, WEP and WPA work fine?

YOU NEED CUSTOM FIRMWARE! Do a fucking google search for it. YOU CANNOT PLAY GAMES ON YOUR MEMORY CARD WITHOUT CUSTOM FIRMWARE.

optis: what game is it that

optis: what game is it that you are trying to download? if it is a flash game then the download probably worked and you just need to know how to launch the game. if it is a psp game or a super mario or some other game that needs emulation, you need a custom firmware.

It means either the wireless

It means either the wireless network you are trying to access is encrypted and you didn't enter the right password or the connection from the internet is too weak (either because you are too far away, or the transmitter is being blocked by too many walls and pipes).

Try getting closer, or using another wireless network.

Hi, i've followed all of tips on this topic, but for some reason i cannot get my psp to connect to my router. I have a psp 3003 firmware is 5.03 i know that the wireless works because my laptop works

My router is a D-Link DSL-2740B
i've set the mode to MIXED 802.11g and 802.11b
and the security is set to WPA

but for some reason my psp still says

No Access points were detected :( really dont know whats going on here

try resetting your router to

try resetting your router to factory settings, then make sure the following is done:

(i) WPA-PSK (and not WPA-PSK2)
(ii) DHCP IP pool is sufficiently large.. allow for 100 IP addresses
(iii) MAC filtering is off

alternatively...
(i) turn mac filtering on
(ii) enter the mac address of your PSP into the ALLOW list (double check that there are NO errors.. has to be EXACT)
(iii) ensure you still are allocating enough IP addresses to DHCP

if that fails change the channels on your router, you may be transmitting on the same channel as a nearby router.

Make sure your router is not near items like microwave, flourescent lighting, inductive motors, any sort of RF.

but be sure to FIRST RESET to factory default.. usually means pressing the RESET button whilst powering on. I know the reset method for the Belkin did not work as described in manual... worked by method above. Good luck.

If all fails, change your router to Belkin or NetGear.

Make sure you are using an open connection (no password needed), or if you know the password for a secure connection, make sure you entered the right one.

Also, make sure the wireless router is working and transmitting (use something else with a wireless card, like a laptop or another PSP).

Talk about a discussion that

Talk about a discussion that goes in circles started from unknowledgeable people with help provided from people almost just as unknowledgeable.

The psp and the psp go do not have wireless g support. Hence they don't support wpa2. Wpa2 is exclusive to wireless g and offers the more secure AES encryption that wpa1 does not offer. Most of you can't connect your psp to your wireless router because you probably have wpa2-aes enabled. What you need to do is enable wpa2 tkip and aes mixed mode. What mixed mode does is it lets devices that support wpa2-aes use it, and devices that can't just fall back to wpa-tkip.

Also, let it be known that turning on or turning off your ssid on your wireless router won't do anything to change the way your wireless router operates. When ssid broadcast is on, it just displays on wifi scans that there is access point XXX in range. With ssid broadcasting off, your wireless router won't show up on wifi scans. Turning off the ssid broadcast just make your wireless router not announce it's presence; it's a way to hide your wireless network.

So how do you connect your psp to a wireless network not broadcasting an ssid? It's called you enter in the name, encryption type, and encryption key manually into your psp, and then connect. That's how you connect to a wireless network with a hidden ssid, you put in those three details manually. Yes the psp does let you do this, however it wont be found in the "easy" wireless configuration area of your psp, it will be found in the "custom" area of the wireless configuration of your psp.

Ken clements, learn the wifi terminology. It's not called wpa-psk2. There's only wpa and wpa2. Wpa and wpa2 both use psk. The psk stands for preshared key, the preshared key is the decryption key used to login to your encrypted network with whatever form of encryption you have.

And, i think all of you need to use google, and use google hard. Spreading around opinion, hearsay, and assumption as fact is not real information. Using google can point you to real legitimate information.

I answered all of your questions concerning psp and wireless correctly, i also didn't derail the topic with beggings of "get me pirated stuff, and do it for me". I'm even understandable.

Shamil,

Shamil,

You are a condensending idiot. This isn't a forum for you to demonstrate how much of a dickhead you are or how much you THINK you know about something. People that come here look for simple answers and not morons like you who think they are intelligent. OOOOhh so yo know what PSK stands for.. grow up. People like you need stay off forums like this.. You answered sweet FA to help those that are seeking help apart from demonstrating how trully stupid you are.

oo ooooo ooo let me throw one in.. AES stands for Advanced Encryption Standard... i must be smart.

And if someone types in a typo.. get over it. Whether its WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK... build a bridge and get over.

Stupid idiots like you just waste space and really have nothing to offer. If you want to prove you are intelligent go finish high school.

I'm not a condensing idiot, i

I'm not a condensing idiot, i do know what i'm talking about, and people who know what their talking about tend to be able to explain things in a shorter amount of time. I answered everyones question accurately and to the point.

Sorry for doing what i did in a fashion that made me an ass. I got a little agitated reading this whole thing realizing how much people didn't know what they were talking about and how much people didn't care to do their own actual research using google so that they would know what they were talking about. But, i didn't resort to name calling.

Also, you didn't understand the point i made about psk. My point with explaining what psk stood for was to help explain why there is only one kind of psk and that it's used with all forms of wireless encryption. I did not explain the meaning of psk to show how smart i am.

People like me need to stay on this forum. People like you need to not get even more agitated than i was. You say people come on here looking for simple answers. But, this topic doesn't have any simple answers. When you're talking about wifi encryption protocols, the hardware inside of the psp, ssid broadcasting, and also what happens when you mix all of it together, and why it all happens the way it does when you mix all of the factors together....tell you what, you're not going to get a simple answer. You're probably not going to get the answers any better than the way i gave them.

I can get over a typo, but you didn't believe you had a typo or else you wouldn't have said wpa-psk2 all of the time. You're just mad because i got done in here what everyone else in this thread was unable to accomplish.

If you really want to call me an idiot, double check everything i said. That's what a smart person would do. Not just out right calling someone an idiot because you're wrong.

Tommy... it would be a

Tommy... it would be a setting within your router... usually a simple check box. You can turn it off, but you will need to know the SSID when trying to connect to your wireless network. Broadcasting it doesn't make it any less secure as there are heaps of software out there that will show hidden SSID's. The key to your security is the type of encryption and ensuring the KEY's are not known by other people...

The usual mistake people make is to enable a good encryption and password but then leave their Router unsecured.. most routers addresses by default are 192.168.0.1 or 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.2.1 etc... giving people access to the all the settings....

SSID = Service Set Identifier
