Add WPA2 support for PSP

Idea 3652 | Posted in , by | April 8, 2010

Add support to go online with a router which has WPA 2 activated!
Even Nintendos DSi can do it!

My PSP is the reason I haven’t updated encryption from WPA yet. Please fix!

Many Routers can allow you to use the PSP in a WPA encrypted network. Make sure your network supports b+g (my router also allows b+g+n) and see if your Router allows to set the encryption to WPA + WPA2.

I am also for the support of this idea. The PS3 can WPA2, and sometimes the only available connection for some is only WPA2. This will make the PSP more friendly for all.

how can anyone say no to adding this feature , long overdue . I have some serious concern about people voting no to just screw things up

@5 Because those ppl think that like the dude from @3 – if your router support wpa+wpa2 it simply means that PS3 will use WPA2 and PSP will be left on uber-easy-to-hack WPA1 so this solution is useless for those who are afraid of lost their PSN data.

Why are people voting NO?

Those that know about networking connections know that the PSP would greatly benefit from this.

Sony should seriously add this encryption type in there next update.

This would also greatly benfit those that are using such connections as Mobile Broadband with Connectify installed on there systems to create there own Wi-Fi hotspot. At present because PSP doesn’t support WPA2 encryption you can not connect to the internet via a Connectify setup hotspot.

Cheers!

People who vote “No” for this are stupid.

If PSP has WPA (and recent WiFi routers already does support this), let it be left as a WiFi feature.
Since PSP doesn’t still have a WPA2 (and some WiFi methods only use WPA2), let it be an additional feature.

It is unreal how bad the PSP needs this. Without WPA2 I will not be using my PSP on my home network. I recently bought a 3000 series PSP after selling a 1000 and a 2000 several months ago; I’m still floored that WPA2 isn’t here. It’s insane to expect people to downgrade security to play online.

Hopefully WPA2 support will come to current hardware soon. The PSP needs all the help it can get… and this is hurting it.

Should also add that WPA2 enterprise is desired, not just basic.

ricramon  |  July 19th, 2010 at 11:53 am

@13 I agree with adding WPA2 Enterprise. I work at a university which only allows for WPA2 Enterprise.

As of March 13, 2006, all new devices sporting the Wi-Fi logo require WPA2.

http://www.wi-fi.org/news_articles.php?f=media_news&news_id=16

The Wi-Fi certifications for the PSP models, from the 2000 forward, all state that they support WPA2 – check it out.

http://www.wi-fi.org/search_products.php?search=1&filter_category_id=17

Sure, the chip in them supports WPA2, but it’s disabled in software. Seems pretty dishonest to print the Wi-Fi logo on the box, when that logo **requires** WPA2 support.

Nothing to add, just want this to be noticed. It’s a no-brainer, and almost embarrassing for Sony. I appreciate the comic book reader, but I’d much rather be able to play games without compromising my home security.

Kirkpad  |  October 6th, 2010 at 2:20 pm

This would be really great to have this. I live on a campus where their only wireless is WPA2.

slazar0427  |  November 13th, 2010 at 10:23 pm

PLEASE PUT WPA2 SUPPORT FOR THE OLDER GENERATION PSP MODELS!

Tha_Kingpin_88  |  November 23rd, 2010 at 2:11 am

This should have been done a long long time ago. like back in early 07 when this topic really started popping up on the sony forums. I haven’t played my psp online since i went to wpa2… come on sony i wanna kick some … online

20

SpeedyRyan  |  December 1st, 2010 at 8:35 pm

Psp should have had wpa2 support to begin with .. hurry up and update it .. im not buying one until it is supported.

21

miticorey  |  December 19th, 2010 at 2:52 pm

Please… do not update it in a new console… just update the system of the PSP 3000 or N1000!!!!!

22

americayessi  |  December 30th, 2010 at 3:18 am

Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please

CaptainLx  |  January 10th, 2011 at 12:48 am

I just bought a PSP 3000 and. Got rid of my PSP 1000, thinking, this might fix it. I can’t even fathom that Sony is still not supporting this native. Sony, we need an update on this. This is ridiculous and a shame for a company like Sony.

24

Finaldeath1689  |  January 25th, 2011 at 1:28 am

Please add support for this.

Decided to take out my psp for the heck of it and had to change my router encryption to wpa and had to change it on every single device in my house. (seriously not fun when you have alot of wifi devices like ipods and computers and video game systems)

25

PluggedBus  |  April 17th, 2011 at 3:08 pm

I haven’t gotten to do anything online with my PSP since my house got WPA2 so this has my vote.

26

Mysteriousplayer  |  April 17th, 2011 at 7:48 pm

I don’t understand why people would vote no to this.

27

oshbra_2008  |  June 7th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

come on people we need WPA2 support add to PSP!!!!!!!!!!! Please sony PLS PLS PLS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!it’s so disappointing even the WI-FI Logo states that all PSP modules are equipped with WPA2 encryption

28

JScript  |  February 27th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

It just blew my mind when I could not use Remote Play to access my PS3 because I replaced my router and updated to WPA2. How is this not supported?

31

finn0072  |  February 14th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

come on sony whats the deal add this already it is very much needed

32

electro5478  |  June 9th, 2013 at 9:43 am

This is needed.i got a new Internet high speed with WPA2 PSK (AES) encryption and u cant connect it.it been a WHILE since the 6.60 update and they hadn’t even put a single thing in it.Sony, PSP users are demanding a wpa2 support on psp.

itoikenza  |  September 16th, 2013 at 1:48 pm

of course, a no-brainer here, if it’s true that 2k’s onward are limited by only software…
