    Product Description

    The Linksys WGA11B Wireless-B Game Adapter gives any wired Ethernet equipped game console wireless connection capability. If you have an existing home wireless network with a cable or DSL Internet connection, the Game Adapter lets your PS3, PlayStation 2, XBOX, XBox 360, or GameCube attach to the network so you can get into online games without running wires to the game room. Or, you can use a pair of Game Adapters to form a "cable-less cable" between two game consoles for head-to-head gaming -- in the same room, or all the way across the house.

    HDMI - Yes
    Wireless - No

    But then if you're that desperate to go wireless, you'd probably be better going for the 60 gig. Not that you'll have a choice in Europe...

    Erm, you thought wrong.

    I thought Sony needed to update the PS3 before this works. UNLESS they mean with linux, in which case it's very sneaky.

    JediMasterMalik: The 20GB version has a ethernet port, you just connect the ethernet cable to this 'router' and then you're wireless except well you have a wire going to this 'router'.

    I guess router is the wrong name but I can't remember what you call these devices.


    Its a broadcast station. Its pretty much the only way to get the console up and running for those that have the 20gig version (or at least its the only device I have found after about a month of searching that actually works). Sure theres a wire going to it, but for me running a 20 metre cable across my living room at the moment Id much rather just plug the PS3 into this, shove this behind the telly and bobs my uncle..... no visible, annoying cable to trip over or be seen.


    regardless its a good alternative...... I wonder if the PSP can talk to this thing ? I would think so

    I doubt if it allows the PSP link up capability as it's an external device and the PS3 won't know anything about it.

    If you want to have your PSP and PS3 working together get a 60 gig one.

    Could some one re name this thread "Wireless bridge goes wireless"?

    Or, "I recommend this wireless bridge for your PS3" or more to the point
    "Pimping my ebay auction; buy this wirelss bridge"

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    For all of you saying "this won't work" and "the playstation doesn't know about it, so it won't work" and anything similar, let me explain how it works. The PS3 20gb model has a port for an ethernet connection. If you plug an ethernet cable into it, it works, no arguments here I hope. What is happening with the adapter is that the information is being swept across the room wirelessly, and then goes into the PS3 via an ethernet cable. You configure the Adapter with your PC, the same as you would a Router. The PS3 does not even know there is an adapter connected to it, it just knows that there is an ethernet cable connected with data coming into it. It doesn't need to recognize the adapter at all. I'll give an example. You are a deaf person (PS3), someone is trying to communicate something to you. They write it down on a piece of paper. They pass the paper to a second person. The second person (Wireless Router) READS the paper OUT LOUD to a third person. This third person tells a fourth person what was read out loud to them. The fourth person (Wireless Adapter) writes the message down on a piece of paper and passes it to You. You could care less about the people talking, b/c you can't hear them. All you see is the piece of paper at the end of the line. Now... PLEASE no more posts saying "it won't work". Thank you.

    Yes. Well done. It's a wireless bridge that works with any ethernet port.

    We've already said that.

    And you still won't get connectivity between the PS3 and a PSP.

    Please can someone help me with trying to set up a wireless network to my PS3. i have gone through all the motions however when i check the connection it fails to find an IP address. when i key the IP address in manually it displays a message saying 'An error occured while resolving the name with the server.' any help would be greatly appreciated as the console may find the front lawn via my window quite soon!!!
