Unable to access wifi connection on PSP with router 'WNR1000v2'.

I just bought a Netgear router 'WNR1000v2'. My PSP can scan this wifi connection but when it tries to connect it says

A connection error has occurred. Check the security settings for the network and try again.


I googled it and found that there are lots of guys facing the exact same problem, but could not found the solution. I tried everything but of no avail.

At present i run my router @ 54mbps as suggested by few forums, and using no security.

P.S. Using this router i can access the wifi connection on my Desire S,

Re: Unable to access wifi connection on PSP with router 'WNR1000v2'.

I have a PSP myself, this ussually can be solved by entering the settings and security manually. If it still does not connect, try to connect it to a different network, if you experience the same problem. it could be something with the PSP.
Thanks,

Re: Unable to access wifi connection on PSP with router 'WNR1000v2'.

I found the solution of my problem here, but can't figure out how to do this
http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=54793

it says:
I had tried about all the channels when i read the description of "mode" that made me think the "neighbor-friendly" setting for mode might be the better setting for "mode" than the more powerful default setting that describes the default as strictly for 'G' and 'N'

It worked. I changed the mode to the neighbor-friendly setting and set the channel back to the default "auto"


That person is having the same router as of mine. I am unable to figure out what is 'neighbor-friendly' mode.

Please help.


Also, there is one more solution here
http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PSP-General-Discussion/PSP-connecting-to-Belkin-N-Router/td-p...

It says "disable the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) "


Channel 11, Wireless mode n&g&b, Bandwidth 20/40 Mhz, Broadcast SSID No,Protected Mode Off, WMM Enabled

Security WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK Encryption TKIP+AES

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Disabled - Important!!


Please let me know what is '"neighbor-friendly" mode and how to "disable the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) ".

Thanks

To prevent interference with other wireless networks

WPS is only for wireless adapter that supports WPS to connecte wireless router easier than standard ecryption and will NOT do any for speed etc.

Re: Unable to access wifi connection on PSP with router 'WNR1000v2'.

I can't vouch for the procedures described in the threads you found, however, "neighbor friendly" mode is usually setting your speed to 145 or 150Mps as opposed to using 300Mps. Sometimes the higher speed (ie. 300Mps) can cause problems with neighboring networks.

You should be able to locate WPS (which is the short for Wifi Protected Setup) if you scroll down the panel on the left. As jmizoguchi indicated, this feature is to enable connecting devices that are WPS-enabled to quickly connect without having to go through entering the SSID and password. I agree with jmizoguchi when he says that he can't see how disabling WPS could have anything to do with your problem. But hey, you are searching for a solution so no harm in giving it a shot.

Good luck! Smiley Happy

The ‘Good Neighbour’ rule is a little misleading since it suggests that your router may cause problems for your neighbouring networks, and some people might not care and want to disable it. The fact is that the rule relates to contention, and that can affect every node in the area, so not only do your neighbours potentially suffer, but so do you.

Thanks for expanding my knowledge Andy.

So some people not caring but at the same time not knowing that they may be causing issues for themselves as well. Well if their own wifi suffers too, then they deserve that if they want to play selfish - wouldn't you say? It's unfortunate tho that they may be causing problems for neighbors too. I guess we have a bit too much of that sort of behavior in this world - not only as it pertains to wireless networking - so sad. Smiley Sad

Re: Unable to access wifi connection on PSP with router 'WNR1000v2'.

People understandably want the best from their routers, especially the expensive dual band 300Mbps or better units. But what is not made clear to people is that the standards that apply (that allow the WiFi compliant logos to be put on the box) impose limitations. So people are very disappointed to find that their wireless connection runs at half the maximum link rate, or even less than that, and even more disappointed if their older router used to run faster because it didn’t obey the new standards requirement. I can understand that disappointment, it’s like you have been conned.

But, the requirement was introduced for a reason, and with a CSMA/CA network in any situation where your network (and that includes all clients and not just the router) can cause problems for other networks, then it is a mutual problem, it hits back at you in much the same way. So if you have a router that you can force to 40MHz bandwidth (two channels used) and it causes contention issues for other networks, then that contention applies to your network also. You may well see a link rate of 300Mbps, but throughput will take a hit, the connection could be erratic, and you may well be worse off than if you run at 20MHz bandwidth single channel with low contention.

The people who influence or set these requirements, the WiFi alliance, include companies like Cisco, Intel, Microsoft (and about 30 others) do not set these requirements for a laugh, they are the result of detailed analysis and test, and they realise that if routers continue to operate on the 2.4GHz band using two channels then contention will become disastrous since there are effectively only three non-overlapping channels on that band. Put a few of these 40MHz dual channel networks in an area together and everyone suffers, but they might all see that link rate of 300Mbps and be fooled into thinking that all is well.

Of course there is also the issue of third party firmware, where the producer is not required to meet WiFi requirements, and so they can release firmware that allows the ‘Good Neighbour’ feature to be disabled. Their firmware is of course seen to be better than the manufacturers in allowing the end user to make the choice, but guess what that choice will invariably be?

Unfortunately practically all manufacturers want to promote their routers as the fastest available, and the issues that will reduce that headline link rate figure are consigned to the small print or an online FAQ, you might see a small ‘*’ next to the large ‘300Mbps’ on the box relating to the small print which will say ‘Actual throughput will vary depending on …..’.

Re: Unable to access wifi connection on PSP with router 'WNR1000v2'.

Mars Mug,

Hmm... I see.

"...it’s like you have been conned."

Yes. I agree that manufacturers share a large part of the blame either thru omission, or consigning important info to small print, or just not being clear and upfront with significant info that can be detrimental to their sales.

People, in general, must also be to blame if they don't make it their business to research/learn some networking basics (at the very least). I think this is fair because just about everyone wants to network wirelessy but don't want to know about CSMA/CA or why the Wifi Alliance have certain rules.

"...third party firmware"

I take it to mean you are referring to Tomato USB, DD/WRT and such like?

"... 40MHz bandwidth (two channels used)"

This topic I would like to educate myself further on. Any suggestions on where I can start?

As you said before, the subject of Networking can be challenging (at times), depending on how deep one wants to dig. At times it's like a whole lot of Greek and I need to go over things several times, but I'm not daunted.

Sorry!

However, if you check post #9 here, I did answer 2 questions you had:

There were no subsequent post by you indicating whether the explanations were understandable.

For that matter, there were no subsequent post indicating whether you tried the solutions in the 2 threads that you found???

Re: Unable to access wifi connection on PSP with router 'WNR1000v2'.

I just bought a psp and tried to access the internet, but when I go in to the network settings in the psp and scan it tells me that my wifi is not supported. How do I fix that?
