    Hey TG,
    I'm trying to set up my PSP to access the internet using my Gateway Laptop w/internal 802.11g card. My set up at home is just the Laptop and its only used for my wife/kids and I to surf the net. So, I'm in no need of an extensive wireless set up. With that in mind I've done some very brief research and found that the WiFi Max might be the right solution. But, is it a true plug and play with my laptop using dial up at the crib. Please let me know, thanks.:)

    Yeah.... It's AOL dial up from the house and Yes, its a playstation portable(PSP). I'm attempting to use some type of access point/wireless devise that will allow me to piggyback my PSP at home when I'm dialed up w/my laptop, but not sure if it will work. That is why I mentioned the Daltex "WiFi Max". Keep in mind I'm pretty clear that if I have a cable modem/broadband, etc. and a wired/wireless router its a no brainer. But, since I have no need for all of that at this time I'm looking for a simpler solution exclusively for the PSP while I'm online. Can you help?

    The only way ( there may be others) I could think you coud use dial up and wireless would be to :
    1. use a modem in one PC to dial into your ISP
    2. set your wireless devices to ADHOC mode, probably would not need a router.
    3. use internet connection sharing to share yor internet ( assuming ALL ARE XP)
    4. The downside is using ICS every pc that uses your dial up connection will cut the bandwidth in half.

    If you scroll down to " connectivity " It is kind of confusing, maybe you could tell me, does your PSP have built in WI FI ? I f you read down it looks like you have usb port. So either I would assume you can use. You could use a usb WI FI card.

    Yes, the PSP comes with an 802.11b card integrated. Another quick questions if I may. Can you tell me if you or any of the other guys know how reliable some of the many media manager softwares available for this application are? I've been surfing and ebay has tons of stuff. e.g. Sony has the media manager, but I can't tell if it allows you to convert your dvd's to mpeg,wvm, etc. What I did notice was several other independent venders listing cd's w/preloaded media software. From what I can tell it looks cool and seems to do what I'm looking for, but are there risks using their software on my unit? Please let me know if anyone from TG has run into this, thanks.
