WPA2 is a specific type of network encryption used to protect the information being transmitted over wireless Internet networks. In order to connect your computer to a WPA2 network, you need to provide a unique password. If you're attempting to connect your Sony PSP to the network you will still have to provide that password to get the device connected. This is accomplished via a manual configuration of the PSP's network settings.

Instructions

    Turn on your PSP. Select the first option from the console's main menu, labelled "Settings."

  2. 2

    Highlight and select "Network Settings."

  3. 3

    Select "Infrastructure Mode." This indicates to the console that, instead of connecting to another PSP console (like you would in ad-hoc mode), you are instead connecting to a wireless network.

  4. 4

    Select the "New Connection" option. Select "Scan." Locate the name of your WPA2 wireless network. Select it with "X."

  5. 5

    Select "WPA-PSK (AES)" from the "WLAN Security Setting" menu. "WPA-PSK (AES)" is the official name of WPA2. Type in the password for your wireless network and select "Next."

  6. 6

    Choose the "Easy" connection option. Specify a name for your wireless network on the PSP and select "Save." Your PSP is connected to the WPA2 wireless network.
