Using your PSP to surf the Web
For those of you who thought that the PSP was just for gaming, think again – this Wifi-enabled console can also be used to surf the web as and when you please. In fact, when you are uploading to a Download game over a connection, you are visiting a Sony web page over the internet. With a clever resetting of the DNS settings, you can use your PSP to go to any other location on the web.
This is what you have to do to remap the DNS:
- Open Network Settings.
- Either make a new connection or select one from an existing list.
- Go down to the Address Settings tab, and choose the Custom option.
- Again, scroll to DNS Settings, and choose the Manual option.
- Enter your Primary DNS server as the original DNS that was used to configure your PSP connections.
- Save the changes and exit Network Settings.
This is all you have to do – after this, you can load Wipeout Pure, and use it to explore the web as you feel like.
Another useful tip to optimize your PSP is to turn off the WLAN Power Save option that is there in the Power Save Settings section. This will speed up browsing and make life a lot easier. Even though now you r battery will drain out quicker than before, it is worth the price.
The control buttons that you typically use for gaming are the keys to scroll navigate between web pages, and a keypad will pop-up whenever you are about to enter anything in a text field.
