False. If you are using g wireless which is at 54 mbps, the transfer rate is well above the speed of cable or DSL (which is average around 3-5 mbps). It might add a couple of miliseconds onto the latency if anything.

Go into the router configuration page (http://192.168.1.1) and go into Applications & Gaming > DMZ and enable it to the computers IP.

How much is a wireless G router?


You can find them cheap on the net. Around 50 bucks. I love the version 2 through 4 since you can use DD-WRT firmware with it. I have one acting as a repeater so it extends my range.

Totally lost, but sounds good

Do you use the router for gaming?

Assuming since he bought it yesterday perhaps v6.0. Although, you never know.

I don't know if a firmware upgrade would solve this issue but it won't hurt (well), unless he bricks the router.

bricking is when you unplug the router while it's still upgrading right?

and in order for me to use a wireless router for PS2 gaming, I'll need to also get a game adapter as well, right?

The WRT54G has LAN ports in the back if you want to ethernet to the console. Otherwise you need some kind of adapter to pick up the wireless signal. A game adapter can work if that's what you are looking into.

Yeah, Running wires from my PS2 the the computer isn't good because I'll have to get a really long ethernet wire and it'll obstruct peoples walking path. Wireless connection sounds good to me. Plus, I can use the wireless connection for other things other than the PS2 such as PSP.
