    psp Xlink Kai turns Ad-Hoc into Infrastructure

    via PSP Fanboy


    It's been a long time coming, but internet tunneling for PSP seems to finally be in full-swing. With Xlink Kai, and a compatible Wi-Fi adapter, you'll be able to play Ad-Hoc games, like Monster Hunter, online. Watch Impress was able to squeeze in 2500 people into a Monster Hunter Portable 2nd game room. All that's needed is: an Xlink Kai account (which is currently free) and a compatible Wi-Fi adapter, such as the PCI Gamering XII, which includes the appropriate drivers.

    When booting up a game in Ad-Hoc mode, it will make other Xlink Kai users appear as if they're in the same room as you. With Xlink, so many of the PSP multiplayer games that fans have been collecting won't feel so lonely anymore.

    Y'know, you also have to be able to plug your PC directly into a router rather than connecting it wirelessly, don't you? Or could I somehow connect my laptop to the Internet with the built-in wireless thing and, with an external wireless adapter, connect the PSP to the laptop?
    Though I can't really think of any Ad Hoc games that I'd like to play more than any of my PC games, since I have to be at home around the computer to play Ad Hoc online.

    Yeah, it's possible to use two wireless adaptors, or the on-board one and an external one.

    This is old news anyway...

    that is a poorly wrote article from the fanboy. xlink still only works in ad-hoc mode which makes their title pretty misleading! i suppose there on about the way it makes the ad-hoc work over the tunnel.

    also ive been playing kai for at least 3 years on one console or another, its not new at all

    any1 want help setting up PM me

    i think that you need.

    wifi adaptor to establish connectivity between PC and Computer
    then plug the modem directly to PC to establish internet connectivity between PC and Internet

    ex: PSP ->WiFi<-PC->Modem<-Internet->Xlink Kai

    its like a chain.

    I use Xlink Kai with my xbox and XBMC, but I have never tried it with my PSP (no wi-fi router).

    I think a really neat idea would be a port of Xlime or the connect4 game for xbox to the psp as they are on Xlink as well. Is there any psp homebrew games that use xlink?

    you dont need a router you need a wifi card for xlink. in theory you could play any emulator that has ad-hoc dependant on ping
