    i live in gloucester and i have always wanted to have the internet up and running on my psp.

    my friends have psp's and they can get up the internet exept me and
    i was wandering do you have to have a wireless internet connection on your computer so that you psp can pick up the signal?
    i have done the internet connection but it always comes up on screen

    a connection error has occorred the attemp to obtain the ip address timed out

    is there any way out of this?

    Just get a wireless router. You can find pretty decent one for under $50.

    a router is a device that transmits your computers internet connection into a wireless one, that devices like the psp can use.

    well as long as the strength of the signal is 50% or higher you can, but most routers arent that strong, unless you go to a hotel of a MacDonald's or something.
