Okay, so yesterday I bought a new modem for my internet because the previous one, a 2WIRE 1701HG, broke. The new modem is a SIEMENS SpeedStream 4100. Now, why was it that I was able to connect to the 2Wire's Network from my PSP, but when I scan for the new connection there is none? Is the SpeedStream not able to create a network that I can access on my PSP?

And if this is true, would buying the newer 2Wire 2701 HG resolve this issue, and allow me to connect to the internet from my PSP again?

If you need any more info regarding this issue, please just ask! Thanks.

Oh, and one more question. Is the SpeedStream slower than the 2wire? Since using it, I've noticed a slight reduction in connection speed. It might just be me though, not sure.

The SIEMENS SpeedStream 4100 specs say 24 Mbps. Even if your old modem was capable of faster speeds I doubt that your DSL bandwidth is even close to that.

If you want a wireless network you need a wireless router or a wireless access point.

Sorry to hear about your modem diying. So your 2Wire was a wireless modem. The speedstram is not a wireless modem. It is just a dsl modem. So if your PSP is connecting by wireless then you might look for a router that is wireless.
