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 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 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 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.

Im about to buy a Router. How do i get a signal from my Internet on the computer to my PSP? and does it cost money to have it on your psp? also is it exsactly like a computer with a desktop and all that?:)

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 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 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 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 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.

October 30, 2008 11:53 PM

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

cheers

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?

Dude. Listen to me, focus. Focus here, on the pretty black words.

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

November 27, 2008 8:14 AM

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 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.
