It just took me the better part of an hour to get my new PSP (yes, I’m weak-willed, but more on that later…) to connect to my home WLAN, so I thought I’d share a few tips and pointers in case others get stuck. Most of these pointers I picked up in this forum thread
- You need firmware version 2.0+ to access WPA-PSK protected networks.
- There may be issues using a wireless signal channel other than 11.
- If you have a 802.11g router then you need to enable 802.11b compatibilty (this was my main stumbling point)
- You may also have to disable any MAC filtering until you get your PSP connected and can find out its’ MAC address.
