If you have a PSP with the older version 1.01.52 firmware, your only option for wireless security at your disposal is only WEP, which is most easily cracked protocol for wireless encryption. WPA is a more secure solution for PSP.

However, WEP is better than nothing at all. If you use the older firmware, you should configure your network WEP with a password in order to access your network settings on your PSP (Settings>Network Settings, press the X button and choose Infrastructure mode, and again hit the X button). Choose the connection that you want to change and move forward until you reach the WLAN Settings pane.

Make sure your wireless network appears under the name SSID. If it does not, scroll to Scan, hit the X button, select your wireless network from the list that appears on the next page, and click the X button again. This will take you back to the Settings page wireless network.

Now, scroll down to where it reads 'None' for the encryption and then click X. Use the arrow up or down on the keyboard to change from 'None' to 'WEP' and then press the start button X. Now hit the right arrow keys to bring up a screen asking you to enter your WEP key. Hit the X button, and the PSP of the screen text entry will be displayed. When you are finished entering your password, scroll to the Enter key on-screen text entry and click the X button again.

If you already have newer firmware with WPA established in your current network, you need to disable it, in order to allow PSP with version 1.01.52 firmware to access your network. If you have a PSP with version 2.0 firmware, however, you can define the parameters WPA on your PSP to work with your network WPA enabled. It will be almost identical to the procedure to enable WEP, except you switch down to 'WPA-PSK' for the WLAN Security Configuration and enter your password WPA.

Network performance would be better without these security measures, so if you connecting to a wireless network in a thick walled room, just disable this security settings for maximum network performance
