    That firmware predates PSN's existence by about 6 months. Download the 6.61 update manually on a PC, and transfer over USB. Files and directions are here:

    Wifi on the PSP only supports 802.11B. WPA-PSK was added in 2.00, older code could only do WEP, but it never got WPA2. You may need to downgrade your wireless security.

    Download the update like the previous post said. Then transfer it to the folder called ms0:PSP>GAME on the system. Or if you have any umd games, it should contain a few updates that should least be able to perform wireless update.

    Oh also about the security thing, You can use wpa encryption, but not aes password encryption. Or if you can find a network with no password should work too. Also you can't access psn on PSP anymore, that is no longer possible cause of sony.
