How to Connect PSP to WPA2

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.

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

Highlight and select "Network Settings."
