Hello this is my first guide but to get this to work i spent lots of time researching and stuff so dont flame me if it sucks or has been done.
(this guide is for most wifi's that are not protected and do have auto settings if not you will have to access the ip details etc... off a normal pc off that network.)
Intro: Ok, hello everyone my name is Mark and i goto school, im 14 and live in australia. One day i was in school playing gta:lcs and i wondered "hmm i wonder if the school has wifi" so off i went about it exiting the game (after saving of course:P) and went to Network Settings > Infrastructure Mode > -New Connection- , then i typed in School Net i pressed Right D-Pad and pressed on scan and what would you know i found 3 connections: Library01, Science02, English01 (names may vary) so i thought awesome and continued with all just automatic settings or basics and no luck in actually getting on the net OR network thought "damn i was so close i will have to research this" so off i went after school searching for ways around this then i thought the obvious before i got anywhere... how about i check what any of the pc's have for settings, so next day 2nd period i was on windows xp's pc's but i found that i do not have admin access (i know a way around that too but thats for another time:P) so instead i waited till i could access a mac pc since i know they are ****:P well i got on one on last period of the day and found my way through the crap os.... and woo lah i found the proxy settings ip settings dns settings and default router settings, everything the psp needs so i decided on these settings based on what i found (may not be the same for you)
IP 10.75.32.107 (picked high last number because the macs was 35 and i thought i need one out that aint used yet.)
dns 1 10.75.32.11
dns 2 10.75.32.12
default router 10.75.38.1
subnet 255.255.248.0 (defaults are normally 255.255.255.0 or 255.0.0.0
thats what i found and used on my schools network the port for the proxy on the school u will also need mine was 8080 (default)
anyway i tested that and yes it worked.... for the internet and even then not everywebsite for example newgrounds.com was blocked at school so then i set off to that anyway thats a useless story now i will write it up as steps:
check to see if your school wifi has encryption
if it does i can not help you with that legally:P
if the ssid is blocked ur also screwed again unless u can find it which also is possible but i cannot say look anything i cant say in google
Ip Address of a computer in the school (some have DHCP meaning its automatic but you will prefer a static typed in one)
Dns 1 (DNS 2 aswell if you can get it)
proxy and port (sometimes found in Internet Explorer or Firefox)
Default Router (hard to find if you have limited access)
Subnet (pain also if restricted user access)
Setup the Psp with your wifi connection you found use your ip that you found but modify the xxx.xxx.xxx.(this one) to a different number no higher that 255
also type in the dns the proxy and port and the default router
now you should be able to atleast connect and should be able to atleast browse google.com or some access u can on the computers.
If you want to go further i havent tested www.hidemyass.com on the psp but i presume that works on it and you can access sites that are blocked. also if that doesnt work find the ip of that site (pm me on how to do it) and that will almost always work.
if ports are blocked im working on that at the moment it irritates me as i cannot access my radio or pimpstreamer.
also if you want more information just reply to this thread i will help where i can.
thanks for spending the time to read this so much.
