Is there anyway I can use my wireless laptop as a router to the PS2? Here is a picture of what I mean. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes and no:

Share your wireless connection. In some cases you have to disable you windows firewall for that and make sure you have file and printer sharing on. Then your network card should get a standard adress which actually should be a DHCP server to make it able to give an ip adress to your PS2. --> problem

In order to do that you have to use a program as WINGATE.
If you are noobie in networking you have alot to read and understand to make that work though.

Wingate download:


ps) check if your wireless acces point doesn't have a second LAN outpu, some of them have a small hub/switch build in on the back.
