    Try "Bridging" the connection. I'm on wireless internet as well, and if I don't bridge the connection when I go to play, it won't work.

    Try that and let us know what happens.

    dont think it will work w/o a built in ethernet port but i could be wrong. you can go into the xlink config and try changing the network adapter option to the USB-ethernet dongle though if it shows up there.

    I've only heard horror stories about trying to use USB-Ethernet adapters, unfortunately.

    laptop wireless will work you connect your laptop to your ps2 via ethernet and then bridge the connections

    My laptop is wireless only and doesn't have an ether net port so I don't think I can bridge my ps2 through it. However my pd2 is hardwired to my router and my laptop is connected wirelessly. Xlink is showing it sees my ps2 when I look. I feel like this should totally be doable seeing as xlink can see my ps2? Maybe some sort of porting issue?

    Two things you can try if you suspect a porting issue - Set the port to '0' in XLINK Config. That'll bypass all traffic. Or go into your router settings and forward port 30000. I know @SkiMask has some sick skills to get you monitoring your packet traffic to see if you're making it out.

    So I bought a USB to ethernet adapter so now I'm hardwired on both my laptop and ps2 directly to my router and now all of a sudden xlink won't find my ps2 anymore when it was finding it when it was connected wirelessly...any ideas?

    I am not sure what the difference is between people that bridge and people that don't bridge on wireless. But, I know a lot of people that don't bridge and wireless works just fine.

    How is this possible? Just a more advanced wireless card? Is it a firewall difference or anti-virus/malware? When I attempted to bridge on wireless like 3-4 years ago I couldn't get rooms to show up. I have been hardwired all the way since.

    Pretty sure you can. I think there is more than a few who use macs. Sans Bootcamp? Not quite sure. There is a Mac thread and setup, did they only use that?

    You can just use the OSX XLink kai binary.

    http://cdn.teamxlink.co.uk/binary/XLink-Kai-7.4.30-universal.pkg.zip

    Notice if you get "unidentified developer" press command and click on the App. You need to do this in Finder not launchPad. After you do that you will need to click Open.
