The PSP (PlayStation® Portable) only supports WPA, not WPA2. If you are using WPA/Auto, you may need to lock the router to WPA only (firmware 1.07 or higher). This will allow you to connect to your PSP. To switch to WPA only, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the DIR series(D-Link DIR-655) router into the address bar (default is

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the lefthand side.

Step 4: From the Wireless Security Mode dropdown menu, select WPA-Personal.

Step 5: From the WPA dropdown menu, select WPA Only.


Step 6: Under Pre-shared Key, enter the desired Pre-Shared Key.

Step 7: Click on Save Settings to save your settings.

      There is actually a better say (well, in my opinion). Instead of changing the whole configuration and loosing out on the extra range of wpa2 (some people say it doesnt make a difference, but from my studio to the wifi router it makes 45% go to 90%), i simply created a guest log in. Go to advance on the top menu bar, then guest zone, the set it to enable guest mode, enable routing between zones and set that to wep, or wepa, and this makes it easier to connect with the psp without going and changing all the settings on other clients (other computers on the network). It also provides an easy way to let family/friends log into you network when they visit.

          I’m having a similar issue with my DIR-632 router and my playstation portable. Everything seems to work on it except for the PSP and it’s very frustrating. Is there anyway for the PSP to work with the router?
