When my PS Vita arrived one of the first things I did was to I try the Maps application, but when getting my location I got this error:
I didn’t pay attention because I was excited about my new console, games and all that. But then I decided to try Near and surprise…I got this error:
Then I realized that I had problems when upgrading the firmware using the WiFi method because it started to download but it never ended.
I suppose I must be a networking issue, so I tried with my router configuration. I changed the b/g/n mode to only g. In OpenWrt’s web interface it can be changed here:
Consult your router’s manual where to change that value. After that change the PS Vita could obtain my location in Maps and Near. I know, I changed the network protocol from 802.11n (600 Mbit/s) to 802.11g (54 Mbit/s), but if you change your router once again to b/g/n auto mode, the PS Vita can still get the locations and your other 802.11n devices can connect using that protocol.
