yo im thinking about buying a Wireless Network Card for my PC, now i want to use this to connect my PSP to my PC - now the way my network is at home is like this(i kno its awkward):

---------------Sisters PC -----------------XB
PC Router ---->HUB in my room----------> PC --------->(i)
---------------Dad's PC -----------------PS2

now what im thinking is that if i put a wireless network card into (i) will that work if i connect my PSP to that network card and would i then be able to connect to the internet on my PSP - for example, on a game.

might work if your thinking of using Xlink Kai depending on your wireless network card, check the xlink website for network card compatability...
i think this may be what your trying to do

i dont think the network card will broadcast the signal. Might do though you never know. Why dont you just get a wirless home setyp, v cheap nowadays

only certain cards will, cards that can run in promiscuous mode will work coz they can send packets to the psp....i think

If I was you I would do what I did and get a cheap little wireless repeater. This will have a two main advantages:

1. you will be able to connect other wireless devices to it
2. You will be able to use 128 bit WEP security.

I'm using a netgear device, and I picked it up off eBay for under 20.
