    I have my airport extreme router since this past November when I got my imac. Everything has worked flawlessly on it, every device that I have that is wifi capable works without a problem. That is until I decided to put on my psp for the first time in months.

    My psp wasn't set to my new airport secure network and when the psp sees my network it says "not supported". What the hell is wrong here, since my ps3 (made by the same company) works fine.

    My crappy linkys router without security worked fine.

    I can't even update my psp now or use the playstation store because of this.

    Are you using WPA/WPA2 encryption or strictly WPA2? If it's the latter, that's probably your problem. PS3 supports WPA2, PSP only supports WPA.

    Exactly. It needs to be WPA/WPA2 to work with your PSP. The PSP only supports up to WPA encryption. WPA2 only will not work. Sony didn't include WPA2 support with their PSP. Also, of course a router without security will work. If you disabled security on your AEBS, it too will work with the PSP. It's not the AEBS that's to blame.

    I fixed a few things on my guest network and was able to get the psp to work.

    Didn't want to mess with my Home Network, so used my guest network for the psp.
