Does the laptop have a wireless dongle plugged in, or is it already capable of acting as an access point? The laptop has to have one of these features in order for your PSP to connect to it.

Also, I believe you have to configure Internet Connection Sharing.

In that case, I doubt your laptop can act as an access point. I've personally never seen a laptop capable of acting as one out-of-the-box. Your laptop can only connect to an access point from what I understand. I would recommend buying a wireless router. Linksys or Netgear are good vendors to choose.
