That's the thing. Reason why this popped into my head. This system is being ran in my sons room. We won't allow him to have a PC in his room until he's at least 16. Running a long ethernet cord isn't an option either.Quote:
If it does support SMB, then it may be used as a fine miniature NAS unit, to provide OPL with an SMB fileshare for games, independently of using any 'real' computer.
After reading your post and doing some research on my own I agree with you. I think it could work, it's just not very time/money effective. In my 20 years of being a CPU Design Engineer I've learned that when it comes to software/hardware nothing is impossible. All that matters is how much time you want to spend getting something to work.
With that said. I think my best bet would just make a wireless bridge for the PS2. Which is something that I have a lot of experience in. I made wireless bridges for my Game Cube, Dreamcast, and Xbox 360. I think my only real hurdle will be getting SMB to work with it.
