So I got my PSP-2001 model this morning, and somehow I cannot use my Spectrum internet at my Mawmaw and Pawpaws, It says "Not supported" in grey text. Can someone help me? I have the WLAN switch on also.

the psp can't use that security iirc. only wpa1. I just use a hotspot on my phone to connect the psp to the internet.

I don't think you can get it to work at all. I think wpa2 existed when the psp was created, but it wasn't in homes at the time, so they didn't incorporate it. you can connect to the internet using your phone. that's how I have mine setup via a hotspot. I'm not sure if it matters, but I have it hiding my mac address after inputting it into my phone.

How can I get WPA2 to work without CFW though? My PSP version is 6.00 and I cannot put CFW on it if it's the version of my PSP-2001 model.
you can't use WPA2 on any version of a PSP

you either need to convince them to decrease the encryption to WPA, or WEP

    especially if you're using your PC instead of your phone lol

    It's not about being hard but the ease of use of just grabbing it while it's charging
    Gift
  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    that's fair tbh
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    And less wear and tear on the port it's self
    Gift
  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    I think it's a cool option but I also don't think it needs to be like, the only option or anything, especially when the port can have other uses

    (USB-C flash drives, using a cord to transfer files to/from PC)

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    I'd be more into them if they can charge to 100 in like 30 minutes
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Plus c cables are still worn easier especially if you rest the cord on your chest or something while replying to emails at bedtime or whatever usb c cords still aren't that durable is what I'm trying to say

    I think it definitely depends, bc I've not had any issues with any of my usb-c cords I've ever owned
    personally

    I think the one I use for my phone is one of the Switch pro controller cords, those are weirdly sturdy for better or for worse
    Gift
  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    but I've got a cheap walmart cord that's faring well too

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    It's just depending on what you use
    Gift
  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    yeah for sure

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    I prefer using my phone more than my pc weirdly so it would tear more
    Gift
  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    yeah that'd make sense
    Gift
  • CeeDee @ CeeDee:
    I use my computer far more than my phone so it makes enough sense that my phone is faring well

    Pc is basically a overpowered Netflix station so I use my phone to co trol all media off it
