How to Get Internet on PSP With USB Cable

The PSP is a popular portable game console that also can access the Internet. If no wireless network exists at your current location, you can still access the Internet using a USB PSP connector cable attached to a computer with a wired broadband connection. Accessing the Internet through such a connection is quickly and easily accomplished; no additional Internet service provider fees apply, and the connection will not harm the PSP or the computer in any way.

Step

Contact your Internet service provider and ask for the IP address of the domain name server that your Internet configuration uses.

Step

Connect one end of the USB PSP connector cable to the PSP and the other to the USB port of a Windows-based computer. Turn on the PSP.

Step

Go to “Control Panel > Network Connections” on the computer and select the local network you are using.

Step

Click the “Properties” tab and select “Internet Protocol” (TCP/IP).

Step

Select “Use the following DNS server addresses.” In the DNS primary column, enter the IP address given to you by the Internet service provider. Leave the DNS secondary column blank.

Step

Click “Save” to save the setting you have made and close the “Internet Protocol” window. Close the “Network Connections” window.

Step

Run the Web browser on the PSP. Click on links to go to web pages in order to see that the PSP is connected to the Internet through the USB connection.
