Hi guys and girls, I need a little help with my Vita, when I try to connect to the Playstation store it comes up with the wifi thing and then it asks me to choose an access point, so I do and then it asks me for a code or something, kinda looks a whole lot like this....

So my Q is; where do I get the password from? I know it's prolly something simple but I'm an idiot so yeah.

 

Thanks guys. Smiley Happy

You won't be able to connect to the PS3 using the wifi connection.  It is basically used for the remote play connection between the Vita and the PS3 (which doesn't work as a wifi connection on the Vita).

 

As for the passkey for any other wifi connection, you'll have to get that from the people that own that particular connection.  Preferably, at home, you would connect to your own wifi connection which you should have access to the passkey (if it was never changed from the default factory setting, it should be printed on the side, back or bottom of the router from which the signal originates.

The SSID PASSWORD is the password you or whoever set up your router initally set it as.

But I don't have a router, it's set up to run through my PC which uses a 3G wireless modem and I don't remember setting up any passwords but I'll look into it. 

 

Thanks.
