    Hi guys. I want to go on Internet with my PSP. I found some informations but I am not sure I mean about buying router for the PSP to go to Internet. One expert say you need a wireless router. If I got a wireless router can I still connect it with my wired cable/adaptor? I saw someone's suggestion here

    If I buy it, is it going to be hard to setup the router? I want to go like this Internet Cable/Adaptor>Wireless router> PC and PSP. Then can I add another PC? So it will become 2 PCs and PSP. Is that possible? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

    a router is in laymans terms, something that allows multiple machines to access the internet through one thing, like a modem. and yes i have one and we have like 2 computers and 2 laptops and my psp can access it.

    Uhmm . . . Belkins, Netgear, and Linkys wow. Which one is the best? Please vote the routers.
    Netgear -
    Belkin -
    Linkys -

    By the way, is PSP's internet speed slow? What does it depend on? (The computer's internet speed? or which one? Thanks a lot and please help the members of PSP. :)

    Belkin - Has a lot of connection problems and some models can "burn out quickly" and if used 24/7 which most people do they will only last a year, alternatly they have a good customer service and i beleive are one of the fastest.

    Netgear - Have a long life span and tend to stay cool, also have a very stable conection ratio and have a larger life span than most wireless routers.

    Linksys - One of the fastest routers around and one of the most compatible, they have a stable connection but sometimes may reset if they get too hot, come with a pretty good warranty also i hear.

    For Speed - Linksys
    For Long Lifespan - Netgear
    Best Strength Connection - Netgear
    Best Customer Service - Belkin
    Dissconnection Ration - Belkin, Linksys, Netgear

    Overall Verdict - Netgear

    Hey there, I found a Netgear Wireless Router. Have a look and tell me if it is ideal for my PSP.

    http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2437881

    By the way, I have installed utorrent. My normal dl speed is 117.7Kb/s when I don't connect my PC throught my INexq router I mean directly through the Internet Adapter. But when I connect through my wired router my download speed is slow down to like 0.5Kb/s. That is terrible! I will never get the files with that speed! So If I connect through this Netgear Wireless Router 802.11g 108Mbps, will my speed be like I connect through with the INexa wired 100Mbps router? Please help me out! Thanks.

    should work, psp works on the 803.11g frequency and can do wep and wpa-tsk encryption (dont get any router that only has wep make sure it has wpa at least for maximum security)

    that one seems fine tbh but i would google it with psp in the search.

    Now I can go to Internet with my PSP. Thanks for the help. I bought a Netgear Wireless Firewall Router 802.11G 108Mbps and is only $26.69. By the way do you have a PSP which can go Internet and how far can you stay away from your wireless router and surf the Internet? Mine is like only 10 Meters. So I can't use my PSP to surf the Internet when I am away? I mean when I am outside? Some people say you can go on Internet when you are in a hotspot like McDonald, Circuit City. If I do a scan there, won't they know me that I am trying to get into their network and won't they block me?

    Sorry for the GRAMMAR. Try your best to understand my grammar.

    wifi hotspots are just companies who have set up wireless connections for their customers(mcdonalds as you said have wireless in most their stores), mostly in london, theirs a few hotspots where i live but they all require an active subscription to bt or something. few unprotected networks so i can play online games over, doesnt really affect their latency as psp games dont use much bandwidth, unless its in MoH.
