Default cant connect with wii/psp

ok i cant figure out how to get my psp or wii to connect to my router at any time. When i connect it tries to obtain an ip address then tells me it "timed out". if i go to my wireless settings on my router i can change my pass and click accept and my psp can connect within 15-30 seconds of the router changing its settings. at that point my psp will connect and stay connected but if i disconect or if i wait 1-2 mins after my routers settings change i will get the timed out message again. all and all... i can connect RIGHT after the router resets its settings and stay connected all day...but if i disconnect from it i have to reset my router again just to connect

Hi letterlane,

a. Make sure you are using the latest firmware on your router.
b. Put a check on Disable SPI Firewall
c. Then under NAT Filtering, select Open and then click Apply
d. If still that does not work, you can also enable DMZ on your router to the IP address of the gaming console.

Note: Make sure that you assigned an IP address to the gaming console with the same LAN segment of the router.
