    You might need a WEP key, but only if you're connecting to a wireless access point that happens to be using WEP encryption.

    If the security on the access point is turned off, then don't worry about WEP at all. Everything should be pretty straightforward.

    You do have some kind of access point, like a wireless router, right? Obviously that's the first step...

    If you're trying to do this at home, it will probably go through a router. What that does is let multiple computers use your internet connection. Hopefully it's a wireless one. Ask someone else in your house if you have a wireless router, if you're not sure. If you don't, then you can't connect to the internet with your PSP from there.

    If you do, security will most likely be turned off and WEP doesn't matter. When trying to connect with the PSP, you can just choose automatic settings. If security is turned on, then that's another story. I won't explain what to do right now if that's the case. Check if you've got the router in the first place and then come back.
