PSP: Internet in house

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was wondering, do I need to buy a Wireless Access Point like this one to get my psp on the internet?:

Or can I just buy a router like this:

You need a wireless access point/Router...

Once you got one of those its easy as pie to setup... Just a matter of setting up the Wireless router with security like WEP and then when you scan with your PSP you just enter the IP the DNS details and the WEP code and your done.

Not worth it if your just getting a wireless point for the PSP... Only worth it if you have a PC or two that you want on a wireless network.

The wireless router would do you just fine. I have a d-link mimo router that I use to get my psp online and it works perfectly. Just afew thing to remember, the mac address of the psp can be found under the system information. Also, make sure you set the router to its a/b/g mode, as the psp is only b capable.

So... I'm getting two different answers, one saying that I do need the Access Point and two saying that I don't need the access point and just the router.
Which one is it?

A wireless access point is for existing networks; e.g., if you already had a wired router set up for your home network but wanted to add wireless capabilities without changing anything else.

A wireless router obviates the need for the wireless access point since, obviously, it has WiFi built right in.

These days, access points are kind of silly given the very cheap prices attached to routers. I would never recommend a home user get an access point, routers are the way to go.
