Do you have a computer also connected to the router? If so, does it have an internet connection? If so, is your computer connected wired or wireless?

If not, can you get access to a computer that you can connect to the router?

No, the reason for the question was just to be sure you actually did have the router working and connected to the internet.

Using your computer, go to the admin screen for your router and make sure you have the latest firmware. If you need to upgrade the firmware in the router, make sure you get, read, and follow the instructions carefully.

To go to the admin screen, I would not start AOL. Just start Internet Explorer and go to http://192.168.2.1.

Your firmware is up to date.

I did some googling on your problem. Apparently, connection problems with PSP is not uncommon. Some have had success by assigning a fixed IP to the PSP. Others have found turning off security is required. Others fiddled with various options in the router and got it to work. It seems there is no consistency with how the issues were resolved, or what brand router was involved.

I'm not familiar with your particular model of router, since it is apparently for the European market.

Check this thread in another forum for people with similar problems and how they resolved them. Unfortunately, there appears to be no consistent issue or solution.

if i assign a fixed ip to my router, is the there any chance my router might mess up. if it does can it be resolved by restoring the backup seyttings that i have saved.

thanks

The router itself already has a fixed IP, probably 192.168.2.1 for a Belkin. The suggestion was to assign a fixed IP to your PSP. I haven't used your model of router, and I am not a gamer, so I haven't used a PSP, so you need to read the manuals. Or google it.

The router can always be put back to factory defaults. Some models allow you to backup their settings, and if yours does, then it can be restored to those settings.

I don't know about the PSP.

i have assigned my psp a fixed ip and it still doesnt work.

and i have checked all the other forums, but nothing has seems to be there about it.

and i have tried googling the problem, and nothing seems to come up once again.

i have even tried going on to the psp website and it is still useless.

do you have any other alternative searches.

thanks.

As I said, I don't own a PSP. I posted a link to a discussion forum, above, with people seemingly having similar problems. That's the best I can do.

Also, AOL has historically not allowed users to access the internet through their connection unless using the AOL software or having AOL connect first. Try starting your computer in Safe Mode w/ Networking and see if you can get onto the internet. If not, the PSP may not work with an AOL connection.

Finally "fixed" this problem...more like a workaround as I had to disable security completely on my router.

Original problem was 802.11 g only mode was selected on my netgear 802.11 g router. The PSP was able to connect to the router...however, it was not able to obtain an IP address from the router's DHCP server. It kept timing out...

After I de-selected 802.11 only mode...my PSP was able to connect to the router (obtain IP address, etc) however, when the connection was tested to the internet...it failed.

I then completely disabled security on both my router and changed the settings on the PSP.

It now connects to the Internet just fine.

Since I can now connect to the Internet...I checked the firmware version on my PSP and I am running 2.50...the current version is 6.20 so I am now in the process of updating my PSP.

Once that is complete I will re-attempt to enable security...at least WEP...I'll repost and let y'all know how it goes.

I'm not a professional, i have the same problem with my psp go, so guess what i just reset my router to unsecured mode and connect the psp and everything is working perfectly, once you reset your router your psp will pick up the connection automatically. let me know if this works for you too, e-mail me at menace21-@hotmail.com

Folks,

I have found that if you go into your router settings and enable 802.11b as well it will allow your psp to connect to your router.

Hope that will work for you.

Out of the box, the Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) supports the slower, first generation, widely available 802.11b network protocol, and the less-robust WEP wireless security protocol.

However, according to some discussion in the Sony Playstation Discussion Boards, the PSP apparently has a Marvell 88W8010 RF transceiver chip, which supposedly supports both 802.11b and its newer, smarter cousin 802.11g. The problem is, Sony hasn't enabled the "g" protocol.
