Wifi doesn't seem to be working. Is this fixable?

Every time I try to connect to wifi it tells me the signal is too weak. I've tried plugging it in to the PS3/PS4 and the router and no luck. Any ideas? Is there a way to replace the wireless card/broadband adapter?

Is this a good question?

Hi!

While there is no user replaceable WiFi-Card, you could try reseating the antenna connector. Follow this guide until step 11 and unplug the cable that's marked with purple in the guide. If that does not work either get closer to the router or replace the main board. Note that even if you plug the PSP into a PS3/ PS4/ router via USB the internet connection won't be shared.

Note that the PSP 2000 is an 802.11b only card. You will have to double check that the Wi-Fi on your router is set to allow ancient 802.11b.

@avanteguarde Yeah, right, I forgot about that. Most routers do support that old standard tough

@alexniculescu I agree it is supported, but it is disabled. The reason being is WPA2, especially WPA2-AES does not work with 802.11b.

I was also wondering about the 802.11b. That would probably make a difference as well. Thanks for the help guys.

It will always say signal too weak. There is nothing wrong with the WiFi card, but the communication protocol is outdated and no longer supported, hence the said error.

Just buy an old router that is still compatible and bridge to your network.
