    Hi all, doing a small uni project on wireless networking within the videogame industry and were wondering how many people have used their gaming consoles wirelessly and those who have not, why? I would be very grateful if a few of you guys/girls could help me out.

    So if you HAVE,

    • What setup (router model/service provider/connection speed) do you have?
    • What consoles have you used?
    • Is your network secure? If so what encryption (wep, wpa etc.) method are you using?
    • What problems have you had with the wireless connection? If any, how did you overcome them?

    And for those that HAVE NOT used wireless before,

    • Why not and what would make you go wireless?

    Sorry if questions seem a little long, any input/short replies would be much appreciated.

    Of course its secure. 128bit WEP encryption

    My router (BT voyager of some description) does not support my DS so I do not use it for that. PC based wireless gaming happens all the time. Speeds vary between internet2 and 1mbit.

    My network is wide open by choice (I would like to believe I understand wireless security reasonably well).

    Problems, people using torrents and useless P2P: Solution teach everyone to use usenet.
    Real problems are mainly bandwidth (or network) related and are usually solved by using wired or ad hoc connections instead of the router.

    AUSTRALIAN STUFF >_> Netcomm NB5 or something like that/TPG/~13MBPS

    • What consoles have you used?

    Primarily using it as an access point for my home computers. Also may use it for my Nintendo DS or PSP. Might get a Wii/ps3 later

    • Is your network secure? If so what encryption (wep, wpa etc.) method are you using?

    128bit WEP encryption. It's the standard

    • What problems have you had with the wireless connection? If any, how did you overcome them?

    Not really. Once Mario Kart DS didn't work online, then I realized I was capped. It has worked ever since.
