Today, we're going to talk about how to identify the SSID on your PSP. Now, before we get into that let's discuss a little bit what the SSID actually is. That's the name that your router assigns to your wireless network, so whenever you go online with your computer and you see a list of names those are all individual SSID's that are assigned by the router, or you can revise the name yourself in your router administration. So, this is how you tell apart different networks. Your PSP uses that SSID to connect to wireless networks. So, what you first want to do is connect to network settings. Network settings is where you make all your changes to networks. Then, you're going to go ahead and scan for the connection that you've already defined for your PSP. You're going to select that custom connection. Then, you're going to scan, and it's going to look for all the networks in range. Once you've scanned you're going to get a list of networks like and it's going to look something like this. And right here you can see a row of SSID's; it identifies it, and those are all the network I ID's. And that's how you find the SSID of your PSP.
