I don't know what reviews you're referring to, but any wifi router should work. I'm using an old Linksys BEFW11S4 and it's fine. If you're at all tech savvy, you might want to consider flashing a 3rd party firmware on a Linksys WRT54G or Buffalo WHRG54S. That way you can boost the signal and get a longer range.

Any Linksys router will do. If you have a wireless network you should be able to connect. Don't use the auto settings, set up the connection manually, fill out the DNS, IP, etc...

WiFi Max - Sony PSP

That's the most simple way to go...

I have a Netgear WGR614v5 router (about 3 years old), and it seems to work fine with my PSP. I set my PSP up manually, since I'm using encryption with a password for wireless connections. I was able to do an online firmware update with my PSP, and I have been able to browse the web with it too.

Yep, any home network wireless router should work. But here's another tip . . . If you want to watch TV or a DVD "remotely" on your PSP, get a Sony LocationFree Base Station (mdl# LF-V30) and incorporate it into your home network. You can do this wirelessly or with a Ethernet cable. Then, hook up a Cable TV set top box or DVD player to the inputs of the Base Station, and reconnect your TV to the outputs. The PSP Slim (don't know about the Original PSP) has a LocationFree mode, which you can use to watch your cable tv or a DVD remotely on your PSP provided your are near any publicly accessable WiFi hotspot. The really kewl thing is you can also switch channel on the cable box and control your DVD player remotely using the dual channel infrared transmitters that come with the Base Station. The best of all worlds is when you have a multi-DVD player, or a Sony Disc Explorer. Then you can remotely watch from a selection of your DVDs without having to have someone locally swap DVDs in your player. It's like having VOD (Video On Demand) when you are away from home, when there is nothing good playing on "free" TV in a hotel room, so watch one of your own movies instead, also for "FREE". :-)

Linksys all the way. It connects my laptop, Wii, Xbox 360, DS, and PSP to the internet and has never given me any problems. Be sure to secure it with a WEP-key and just plug in the router's info and password to whatever system you wish to connect with, save your settings and you'll never have to worry about it again.

I have Netgear, and it's always worked for me. All you have to do is go on your psp to settings, then system, then system information. go to Netgear. com, and there will be a place where you type your psp's mac adress. Then when you try to connect to the internet on your psp, type in the wep if you have one (And i recommend using one).

What's the best wifi connection for the PSP go? I guess I need to buy a router for wireless connection.

The only thing you have to concern yourself with on getting a router is it needs to support WPA and not WPA2. That's the security setting.

I'm forced to use WPA2 with my router, which means to get my PSP online I have to turn my routers security off, do what I need to, then turn it back on after. Obviously not a good option to play games online. I have other devices that will only work with WPA2, so my PSP just has to do without. I could buy a second router just for it, but I'm not going to waste the money on that, plus the power to keep the thing on.

Of course, you could just not use security on the router, but then your neighbors will be hijacking your internet and doing all kinds of illegal things with it (mostly torrents) and slowing it way the hell down.

If your having trouble connecting your PSP, and have a PS3, you could use the PS3 app.
