    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.

    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.

    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.

    yeah, its a hardware problem, nothing you can do software-wise
    either put wpa/tkip or wep on yur router, but its pretty much obsolete security...

    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
