I just bought a psp from the neighborhood drug dealer, material obtainer, mad hookup type of dude for $20.... obviously its not in brand new condition but it runs fine and works of course, awesome he threw in a box of games... more then worth it..

but how do i get WiFi to work?

I gave it to my little brother to play around with and he stated that WifI doesn't work... this is the 2nd psp purchased from sadi dude and WiFi does not run..

anyone point me in the right direction to get this rectified?

appreciate it!

Nice deal you got there.

The only reason why i can see it not work is if the switch on the side is turned off. Make sure you turn that switch on than try.

don't have internet at home so it would be nice to check it out, from the streets and neighbors...

thanks for the reply

you need a wi-fi connection access point at your house to use online stuff eg go on internet

if you have the equipment needed that runs wifi in your house and your PSP can't get on it to save its life, may want to call sony and ask what to do in that instance. it could be something really simple or it could be something far worse. only way to know for sure is to call.

anyone else got any ideas or input on this?

Well if you search the Error number, you will find results stating that this is a hardware issue. One person experienced success in fixing this problem by pushing the WLAN switch up particularly hard. Another more comprehensive solution would be this:

Check the WiFi switch thing...are you talking about going online?Or ad-hoc. To go online you need a wireless router.
