:) Can I Get a USB WiFi Adapter,add it to a computer that is wired up to a router and still get a WiFi Hotspot.
I will try to make a picture in your mind :help:

Computer + Network Cable + Router = Computer With Internet Access
Now
Computer + Network Cable + Router + USB WiFi Adapter Plugged Into Computer = A Wireless Hotspot

My Whole Reason for this is i would like to access the internet from my PSP with out having to buy a wireless router to get the internet.
Aswell as having a wirless hotspot in my home :whistling:


WHOOA CONFUSING :blink:

The answer is: technically, yes. You can use the wireless functionality that your computer would have to create an ad-hoc wireless connection between the PSP and the computer, and then allow the psp to access the internet through ICS. That is, if the PSP supports ad-hoc connections, which it may or may not.

Or, you could spend a similar amount of money to what you would pay for the USB adapter and buy a cheap wireless access point, plug it into your router, and connect wirelessly to that.
