I got a new psp about a month ago and I can't get it to connect to my network so that I can go on the internet. I have the WLAN switch turned on and I have wireless internet with a router so that eliminates those possible problems. When I search for a connection it finds my wireless internet conection and the signal strength is anywhere from 75%-100%. When I test the connection it says connecting to the access point and then obtaining IP address. But after that it says, "A connection error has occurred. The attempt to obtain the IP address timed out." What does this mean and how can I get my PSP to connect to the internet. Does anybody know how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

Is your router setup by a "professional"? Sometimes, "wifi professionals" setup the wireless network in a way that the router will **ONLY** accept specified MAC address, thus only allowing specified computer/wirelss enabled device to connect. The solution to this problem is to change the settings in your router.

Sometimes, psp have trouble connecting to secured wifi. Try to change the encryption method, password, etc in your router and see if the PSP will connect to your wireless network.

On a computer, if tcp/ip file is corrupted or incorrectely setup, then it also has the symptoms you're describing. The fragmented threashold, RTS threshold, Becon interval, DIim interval, TX rate.etc sometimes might corrupt itself in the wireless program thus may show the symptoms you've describe. If the wireless program on your psp is corrupted, then your only choice is to reload the firmware. This method should be used as a last resort and could cause permanent damage to your psp.

We got our high speed wireless internet about 3 months ago and when the guy was installing it he said he set the system up so that I could play online on my PS2 and go on the internet/ play online with my psp. The other problem is that I have no idea how to change any settings on my router.

You can't flash a firmware when the original firmware is malfunctional or corrupted to a certain point.

Pandora battery is comes with a fresh firmware. You're basically getting a replacement part. So still means that the old firmware is corrupted thus the psp is borken if you use the original battery which conatins the original corrupted firmware.

Anyways... even if you can "save" your psp, you should be careful.

It's a Belkin wireless G router. He did not give us any passwords or anything like that.

Try log into your router using these info

URL adress ; 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1
one for them should work

A windows should prompt you fro username and password

The choices are:

username: admin, administrator, [blank]
password: admin, administrator, [blank]

Try a combination of the user name and password if you can. Most of them, these username and password combination will work.

No,

Belkin's seem to be 192.168.2.1

and there is no password, unless it has been set.

If you get us the MODEL NUMBER of the router we can be more help. Look around on the router and you should see a number that starts with F5D or F6D

If you can connect try this http://www.psp411.com/show/guide/30/2
