WiFi connection error 20000006

15 Replies 26,886 Views Created 11-01-2011

I have a 2nd hand PSP1000 for my son.  I have added the WiFi settings and tested - all is OK and connects.  I can see the MAC address in my router & it obtains IP address OK.  I think software version is 5.5.  

 

When I go to Network Update and select my WiFi it gets as far as 'obtaining an IP addess (again I can see it connects in my router settings) but then I get an error message "A connection to the server could not be established (20000006)  I have googled this with no sucess.

 

I get the same error when I go to sign up for PSN.

 

I have downloaded the 6.35 software but there is no menu option for running form disk on my PSP.

 

I can find no other support avenue to go down.

 

Please help as it is for his birthday next Tuesday - (18/01)

You can update the PSP by connecting it to your PC and following the instructions here: http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/psp/pc/index.htm

You might find that updating also fixes the connection problems.

 

Where did you get the PSP from? Was it somewhere trustworthy? I only ask because Sony sometimes block consoles from access to the network if the user has misused the system. I wouldn't worry about that just yet though. That's just one of a number of possibilities. Try installing the update using the method above and get back to us if you still can't connect to the network.

Thanks for the link.  I had not found the info about creating the UPDATE folder.  It ran OK but said "The system software of your PSP system is version 9.90.  There is no need to update." 

 

I am confused by that as under Settings | System Setting | System Information I can see it says System Software 5.50 GEN-D3.

 

My brother-in-law got it for me so cant vouch for it's history....

 

Any other suggestions or is it OK on this software.

Can you use the internet browser to view sites? In other words, is it just the PlayStation Network that you can't connect to or can you not connect to the internet either?

System Software 5.50 GEN-D3 is a custom firmware, basically the PSP has been jaikbroken so that pirated games will run on it,

Here's a link to another forum with instructions on how to replace the custom firmware with official firmware.

I have already tried to run the 6.35 update but it tells me the same as the guy on that link you sent.

 

"The system software of your PSP system is version 9.90.  There is no need to update." 

 

I have tried doing System Settings | Restore Default settings.  How can I wipe and install the genuine software?  Is it even necessary?

if you are getting the version 9.90 it is an easy fix, start your psp and press select a vsh menu should apear.  go to USB DEVICE and change it from memory stick to Flash 0.  exit the menu and plug in the usb cord to your computer.  when you open your psp on your computer you should see some folders one will say "VSH" go into that folder and into "ETC" and open VERSION.TXT.  the first line should say "release:9.90:" just change the 9's to whatever your real firmware is.  example "release:5.50:" then you can exit go back to your psp press select and change Flash 0 back to memory stick then you can run an update after 5.50.

Can you not just re-download the update onto your storage media device? and remove the corrupted one....

Well I know now what the problem is. I bought one day a second hand psp and that one was tuned up (so it means it was illegal) and had also the version 9.90. but the current version is 6.60 if i am correct. So I turned as soon as possible when he store where I got it a other second hand PSP and with a legal version. Means a 6.60 or lower version. Then you can update it (what I did) and you can go online. So better to say you have a Illegale PSP. I don't have it anymore because I trade it with the store owner and he was happy and I was Happy. So 9.90 Is a fake one and you can't go online with it because. they made a block on that version and lots of problems come with it. the online thing you can do online is the same thing what you can do on your pc is surfing on the net. So now you know

All hacked firmwares are blocked from PSN. 9.90 is fake and should not be used. Install the latest firmware as soon as possible by disabling the hacked features in your device and bypassing the feature that stops you accidentally updating to the latest firmware.
You may need another tool to set the firmware number below 6.60 in order for it to run. But I can't tell you how to do that as discussion of CFW is not allowed.
