I have just been given a Sony PSP, my PC OS is Windows XP and has an ethernet cable connection ~ Virgin Media. I would like to connect the PSP to the internet but understand this can only be done with a WiFi connection which I don't have. I have seen wireless Internet USB adaptors on Amazon, would one of these give me the access I’m after, if so what are the things I should take into account.
I don't have a Router and don't need one for my PC.
I had to load some photos to a portable device which I now have but before I get the appropriate card I was looking into internet connectivity for the PSP. I understand it needs to be WiFi which I don't have and wondered if there was some device I could plug into one of the USB ports on the computer to give a WiFi output, I saw this on Amazon and wondered if it would somehow give me what I wanted and thought I'd check here before placing my order for the card.
If I'm barking up the wrong tree there is no problem I'll just carry on as I am !!
thanks for taking the time to reply
If you don't have a wireless router the you will need to get a cable router or get hold of Virgin for one of their super hubs (modem/router) then you can make the PC wireless and the PSP will connect using it's inbuilt wireless.
Or are you talking about a connection from the PC to PSP wirelessly (Ad Hoc) if so look here Ad Hoc
yup thats my conclusion too ~ as I don't need wireless for my normal computer work I think I'll leave everything as it is for now.
I'm sure it was a pretty basic question so my thanks to all who replied.
I know I'm being thick but how do I give the green tick, I can't find any way of accessing it. When I last posted in 2011 I got a message saying if your query has been resolved etc etc but the layout seems different now, please accept this as confirmation that my query is resolved.
