Open PS2 Loader with wireless router
Yep. it is possible to use a wireless router. I streamed some games via wireless bridge. but it sucked ass on my old di-524 router. it's slow because most of it's bandwidth is jacked up and tied up due to wpa-psk encryption. I needs me a good new wireless N setup, but I'm just too damn broke for that.
here's a simple crappy graphical representation of what you need a minimum hardware-wise
Well thanks for the confirmation that wireless routers work but I could still really use some help on getting my network games to show up on the list. Please and thank you.
Yep I use Netgear Wireless N router and wireless on the PS2
If your using Windows 7, make sure to have Network Discovery, File and Printer Sharing, and Public Folder Sharing are all set to “on” and Password Protected Sharing is set to “off” in the Network Sharing in Control Panel
depends on your settings.
what OS are you using on your PC? what are the exact settings in open ps2 loader? I'm not a mind reader.
The problem may also depend on your OS and what sharing methods you have used previously. This is tied to the fact that OPL uses anonymous access to the (implied) "Guest" account.

But I use WinXP Pro, with simple file sharing disabled, which originally means that ALL share access requires a proper login procedure in the SMB protocol used, just like SMS can do when properly configured. But OPL is unable to log in that way, so to use OPL over LAN it is necessary to enable anonymous share access for the "Guest" account in WinXP.
That is done by at least once enabling simple file sharing (found in "Folder Options" of Explorer), and then enabling the sharing of some folder (like PS2SMB). The very first time this is done it will lead to a unique confirmation prompt that you really want to do this, which you should of course affirm. After completing this operation you should test that it works, though it might work better after a logout+restart (also good for ensuring the change has reached registry).
When anonymous access is verified as working you can again disable the simple file sharing. This is what I have done, as I dislike the idea it is based on. But the main change, that of enabling anonymous access for the "Guest" account (only) which is part of the "Everyone" group, this change will remain even after disabling simple file sharing. That change is in fact the reason for the extra confirmation prompt mentioned above, although the dialog box shown at the time never specified this properly.
The weird thing is that I have no idea how that feature could be turned off again, in case you ever want to do that. It probably can be done by some registry hacking, but I never found any way to do it through normal menus. But to me that is no big deal as I want to keep it enabled.

Sorry about that, my computer's OS is windows XP and my exact settings are displayed in the first post. So basically what you're saying is that I need an ethernet cable that extends from my wireless router to my ps2? My router is obviosly already connected to my computer.
Edit: it's XP home edition. Also, my computer doesn't have a guest account yet but in my own account I have enabled sharing already.
I'm willing to bet that your pc's actual IP doesn't match what you have in that post of your settings for OPL.
ipconfig /all in a a command window. that'll help
also,I suggest entering your router settings and enter static IP addresses for your PC, ps2, and your wireless bridge. that will minimize the need to reconfigure everything if the DCHP decides to give out new IP's. also it will minimize the possibility of one device trying to take the reserved IP for the PS2.
Well he says he configured a static IP for his PC. If done properly, that disables the need for any DHCP configuration (except for the DHCP range setting which should not include the static IP to avoid conflicts).
Okay, so I did the ipconfig/all in the cmd window and the IP did match. The PC and PS2 both have static IP addresses but the part I'm confused about is the wireless bridge. Is that just the default gateway? The gateway is already static so if that's what you are referring to, then should everything be working?
