    so all of my settings are ok? because i also posted this question on yahoo. Someone provided a link and one of the steps said "you should note that if the access point is using WEP encryption, you will need to enter the WEP key manually (when the access point is detected, it will display the type of encryption it is running. If it displays none, simply move onto the next step." Does that mean that on WLAN security settings on my psp, when you get to that menu, (the WEP has the blinking box around it,) does that mean that's what I should choose? im really confused.

    it doesn't matter what computer you use, you are not connecting to it. you are connecting your psp to the wireless router. now, the WEP is the encryption on your router, no one knows that but you. so you have to figure out what it is (or if you even have one). to do this, try connecting WIRELESSLY using your mac, and see if your router has any security. if there is, and you cant get through, refer to your router manual. If it's a wireless modem provided by your isp, call your isp.

    you sure you are connecting to your router? if your wireless router is anywhere in sight, you should get 100% signal. I've never used a mac, so I dont know how to make sure you are connected to the right access point. But I think this is what happened. You have a wireless encryption on your router (if you never set up one, it should be manufaturer's default, refer to your router manual); but since you can't accesses that without password, your mac automatically connected to the next available connction without any encryption.
