    I am trying to connect to my WiFi on my psp but every time i type in my WEP password it says:
    The characters you entered are not valid.
    For hexadecimal:
    Use 10 or 26 characters from the ranges
    0-9, a-f and A-F
    For ASCII:
    Use 5 or 13 characters.

    What does this mean?
    Am I supposed to make my wep password 10 OR 16 characters???

    Please help

    P.S. I dont not want to have a wep password.

    If i were you, i would look at the back of your wi-fi box or modem or router, find the 10,15,or 16 digit WEP code behind your modem or wi-fi box...and plug it in your PSP.........(once again this is my opinion....) once you succesfully log in, the connection will probably be saved and you could log in as many times....i did the exact same thing with my macbook and ipod touch, when i wanted to connect it to my wi-fi modem.

    The PSP OS and WEP don't really get along. It's been like that for years.

    You have 2 solutions, really: change your encryption, or adjust your password to comply with the PSP's requirements.

    The first option would be the best. You seem to be concerned about your network security, in which case it's time to stop using WEP and switch to WPA2. It will be a setting in your router. This will increase security (WEP can be cracked in seconds), and your PSP will accept whatever network password you choose.

    The second option is to follow the PSP's instructions and make your WEP network password either 10 or 26 characters long for hex, or 5 or 13 for ASCII. If that's confusing, try a 10 character password, then a 13 character password on your network. See which one works.
