    Can someone give me a step by step guide to getting on line with my PSP, and visiting websites and accessing e-mail.
    Do I have to subscribe to a service provider before doing this from a wifi zone.

    I'm tearing my hair out with this one....please help

    You need to upgrade to firmware 2.0/2.5 - then you will see a web browser icon on your home page. Ideally you then need a adsl router, which beams your wireless broadband.

    Your connection needs to be 'unsecured' then it's simply a case of setting up a connection. To be honest with such a small screen for browsing - it's better IMO to stick with your pc :hiya:

    In theory, if you're running firmware 2.0 or later, at Starbucks or others all you need to do is:-

    scan for a connection and store it
    Launch the webbrowser
    It should find the approp homepage
    And follow the instructions in order to get online

    eg, for Starbucks you can either have a t-mobile hotspot account or just buy a pass when the homepage launches.

    I've had my PSP online at Edinburgh and Luton Airport so far. But you should know before hand how to scan for WIFI connections, I suggest either reading the instructions on this, or following the steps through from the Network option on the PSP, it is very easy to do, which is why I'm not listing it here.
