I've had the problem since I got my vita, tried doing multiple factory resets, made sure parental settings allowed location data, restarted my router, checked to see if my area is within the skyhook range and it is (dark blue patch), no idea why it affects some people but not others

Namely that the Wi-Fi variant doesn't have GPS but uses nearby Wi-Fi connections to map your location. It is probably that there is no mapped spots within range where you live. A solution to this is adding your location here and waiting for it to be added for partners to use, which takes about a week. If it still doesn't work then it must be something else.

near couldnt find my location over my wifi, but finally ive cracked it once and for all.

first you need your routers mac address, to find this goto start, run and type cmd and press enter, this will (for all you beginners) bring up a little black box. in that box type arp -a and then press enter

under the physical address you want to write down the top line ( it will be somthing like 07-5b-34-db-6y-t7 )

so far so good, nearly there.

next goto www.skyhookwireless.com/howitworks/submit/_ap.php

then enter the details there.

check your email, you should get one str8 away saying its all good and then near again.

BOOMSHAKKERLAKKER, SORTED!!!!!!

I searched the internet for answers to this problem and I, ME sorted it myself.

glad to help folks, PROBLEM SORTED!!!
