    Long shot I know but...

    I can only get my PSP to connect to my WRT54G if I use firmware 3.03.6 or older. If I use any of the 4xxx versions it just fails to connect. WEP is fine but I would rather use WPA.

    Anyone else had this, anyone know of a fix, workaround etc (apart from using WEP)

    You need to use WPA TKIP on the router. The PSP must also be updated to the latest firmware; I think it's 2.0.

    Yup, Im using WPA Personal (new in 4) and firmware is 2.00

    A lot of other ppl are having this, infact everyone using 4.xx so its not just me. Just wondering if anyone knew different.

    Still a problem?...

    This thread is over a year old. Can anyone confirm whether this is still (or ever really was) a problem? I am having the EXACT same problem and cannot seem to resolve it!!

    My WRT54G is running firmware 4.20.7. I'm not sure what firmware the PSP is running, but it is brand new, so I assume it has the latest.

    I've got WEP turned on on the AP. The PSP sees the network with no problem, but I just can't get it to connect to the internet. It fails on obtaining an IP address.

    Is the Linksys AP Router the problem?!?

    Question answered...

    According to what I found on another thread, my problem was that I was using "key3". When I switched to "key1", it worked! The WRT54G v4.20.7 does not seem to be a problem! :)

    Thanks anyway!
