Datel WiFi Max for PSP

CodeJunkies has released the WiFi Max which is essentially a USB-based WiFi access point.

At last, you can connect your PSP to the internet easily, cheaply and WIRELESSLY! With WiFi MAX, a whole world of online gaming is opened, and you can also manage your files and surf the net from almost anywhere in the house.

WiFi MAX for PSP couldn’t be simpler to use. Just plug your USB WiFi dongle into your internet-enabled PC to create a Wireless Access Point. You can then connect to the internet and play online-enabled multiplayer games with PSP gamers from all over the world. Just the thing if you don’t have a wireless router! Best of all, WiFi MAX supports up to five �local’ PSP gamers at a time, so you and your mates can all play online at once!

As well as multiplayer games, WiFi MAX also lets you organise your media files and download them to your PC using our exclusive MAX Media Server software. Transfer MP3s, images and video files from your PC to your PSP from anywhere that’s within range of your new WiFi network. As it operates on the Wireless G standard, it’s five times faster than an ordinary WiFi connection, and if you use our USB cable and dongle stand (supplied), you can position your dongle to maximise your effective WiFi range.

If you have other WiFi-enabled devices capable of using the internet, such as laptops or PDAs, you can take them online with WiFi MAX too. It’s the ultimate device for internet surfing without a WiFi router!

- Internet gaming through any internet-enabled PC.
- No cables necessary � make a wireless connection.
- Organise your files, and convert videos into a PSP-friendly format.
- Five times faster than standard WiFi.
- Suppled with software CD and WiFi dongle, and also a USB cable and stand for optimal positioning.

I am honestly not sure how I feel about this product. Engadget brings up the following interesting point:

…there doesn�t seem to be much info about what kind of security or other capabilities you get on the access point you�ve just created.

The device retails at $39.99 (US) or $29.99 (UK). You can get a good 802.11G WiFi Router with ports for around $50-$60 (US) which features far more functionality. Admittedly, the WiFi Max seems to be more useful when it comes to portability and ease of use, but it seems to me that a standard router would be far better.

I might have to get one and test it out myself just to see if it is worth the price.

    I bought this but cannot get it to work with my PSP. The PSP picks up the WiFi Dongle but when it attempts to get the IP Address of it, the operation times out. I have tried everything I can think of and phones the unhelpful technical support. Can anyone help?

    Hey Dasme.

    Will this work on my Mac OS X 10.3.9 ? I emailed Datel and Codejunkies. They ain’t responding. I’m pretty sure you know so…

    Will it work? :)

    Hello Folks,

    Right my dongle has finally arrived in the post and I am now connected to the Nintendo Wi-Fi network. Now for some connecting is simple, just plug in the dongle, install the drivers and away you go. Well sadly, that was not my experience. What I’m about to write here are for those that may try and connect using a Datel Wi-Fi Max dongle (it may apply to the official Nintendo dongle as well in some circumstances) and ZoneAlarm Security suite.

    First of all install the dongle drivers from the CD, insert the dongle into a free USB port, that’s step number 1.

    Step number 2, run the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi max program and click auto setup, this option will automatically setup the Wi-Fi Max settings. Next go to your internet connection properties and make sure that the ‘allow other network users to connect through this internet connection’ is ticked. If this option is not ticked then your WiFi dongle will not be able to connect to the internet.

    Step number 3, at this point you have to reconfigure Zonealarm. First of all on your main Zone Alarm menu screen select the program controls tab, make sure that the Generic Host Process for Win32 servers is allowed to act as a server.

    Step Number 4, click on the firewall tab in Zone Alarm, then click on advanced settings. Select the option, ‘this computer is an ICS/NAT gateway’ and enter into the local address box your main I.P address, not your dongles I.P.

    Jonah, since you have one I hope you can answer a question for me. They’re selling two different versions on Play-Asia, and I have both a PSP and a Nintendo DS. Does it really matter which one you buy? Since they mention you can use it with other devices like PDAs, I hope that it will work for both the PSP and the DS.

    I’m hoping you can test this theory if you have both devices, or perhaps since you have a DS you might have a friend/relative who has a PSP and can see if they can use the Nintendo DS version you purchased.

    Thanks!

  5. 5 sid

    Pocketgoddess, it don’t matter which one you buy as it works with both the nintendo DS and the PSP (I have both) and the supplied software allows you to install either version or both…

  6. 6 clusterkid

  8. 8 Sid

    Have you done what Jonah said here ” go to your Internet connection properties and make sure that the ‘allow other network users to connect through this internet connection’ is ticked. If this option is not ticked then your WiFi dongle will not be able to connect to the internet”.

  9. 9 optimisery

  10. 10 Shaun Lawler

    Can anyone clarify whether this works with mac osx at all? Or it can be modified to?

    Thanks for any help,

    Shaun Lawler

  11. 11 Fantom

    hi guys thanks for the info so far. Any news on the security aspects of this device, im tempted to get one as i have both DS and PSP. Does the setup allow u to configure any type of encryption or anything like that?

  12. 12 Shaun Lawler

    Noone?

  13. 13 sdsdasd

    Yes you can use WEP up to 256 bit

  14. 14 Cheezer

    so i installed my friends wi-fi max everyime i try to test the connection it fails and it always says theres limited or no conectivity so if anyone can help us ill apreciate it

  15. 15 Tosky

    I am trying to connect my DS, I have my first network connect my wifes pc to mine, and if I select allow other internet user, it disabled my wifes conection, and still it does not work. Any ideas would be wonderful

  16. 16 Likwit_Snake

    Same problem here… time out connecting to ip-adress. The wifi connection on my pc also says no or bad connection. Anyone knows how to solve this please?????

  17. 17 Andy S

    Intresting comments there !!! I have one of these wifi max gadgets!! I have it all installed according to the manual, but its connected, sending out packets, but got no SIGNAL!!!!! Any ideas how to get a signal on it????? Tried emailing codejunkies….4 days later ..still waiting reply!!

  18. 18 glob

    This is really fustrating. My PSP won’t pick up any IP address and times out.

  19. 19 Fred

    For Limited or no connection error you could try -
    Double click the Wireless Network Connection icon and select PROPERTIES then “Wireless Networks” from the top then put the tick on in the “Use windows to configure wireless
    network settings”.

  20. 20 Andy S

    I have tried all that! Nothing happening. Im using a USB modem.
    Geeeez what a headache this is…………….

  21. 21 glob

    i know what to do for no ip address, This is for XP users only.

    go to start>control panel>Network and Internet Connections>Network Connections>
    then chooes which modem you are using for you internet>right click>Properties>advanced the check the box saying allow other users to connect through this computer.

    That should work

  22. 22 Andy S

    Thats all done to… Been throught it all. Got reply from codejunkies, they say its not compatiable with my modem!! So have to send it back now!!

  23. 23 glob

    take it out and plug it in again, just have a fiddle about with it until it says it is connected in network connections.

  24. 24 glob

    have a look on the properties of your internet using the guide i put up above and make sure that you select which connection you would like to share it with

  25. 25 Andy S

    Same problem as i have had Duane!!! I emailed code junkies for days trying to sort this, open your psp wifi software, in the middle is “options”, click on that then “change wifi”, see that your modem is in there! I have done all this and now they said its not compatable with my modem!!
    try emailing them on … support@codejunkies.com..

  26. 26 Egg

    I have a Speedtouch USB modem and it all works fine.

  27. 27 Andy S

    I have the Speedtouch USB modem too. Couldnt get mine to work!

  28. 28 sam p

    hi i got mine to work but then after 5 mins i stoped and now it cant find the ip adress please help!

  29. 29 Chrinkster

    Mine says connected to access point but unable to connect to server,pls can any1 help?

  30. 30 Chrinkster

    But im using a DS,datel say its the same problem.I think i shud have jus bought the official wifi.too much trouble.

  31. 31 Fluff

    Chrinkster-
    Once Windows is set Correctly (especially if you “can” connect to the access point)have you then tried going to the NDS WIFI Max.lnk and check you have no writing in red and if there was any did you try pressing Autosetup ? the same applys for the PSP WIFI Max Media Manager.lnk……

    Maybe if people say what version of windows they can’t get it to work on may help …

  32. 32 Lee Thompson

    Seems like I’m having the same problem as everyone else – I find the signal but when I test the connection it won’t locate the IP address. I’ve shared my internet connection, bridged to the correct modem and everything else on the website but no luck. When I check my wireless connection it states the connection is good – I can see data being received but nothing is being sent back to the PSP. Anyone any ideas as Datel just keep churning out the same rubbish that’s on their website – what a waste of cash!

  33. 33 Chrinkster

    Finaly,ive fixed it.I actualy got the help from nintendo.All i did was share my internet service providerS CONNECTION(AOL),NOT MY LAN CONNECTION ,I REPEAT NOT MY CONNECTION(or ROUTER OR USB MODEM ect)It should work after that.

  34. 34 Darny

    TNX SO MUCH!!! it helped,ive been playin wifi for quite a while,mario kart rules.

  35. 35 Hans Anderson

    Chrinkster, if you look at Jonah’s post he said that in the first place “Next go to your internet connection properties and make sure that the ‘allow other network users to connect through this internet connection’ is ticked…. Internet Connection properties IS your service providers connection otherwise he would of said “LAN CONNECTION, ROUTER OR USB MODEM”………….

  36. 36 Lee Thompson

    Let me check I’ve done this right cos it’s still not working – from ‘control panel’ go to ‘network connections’ – I’ve selected my local area connection gone into ‘properties’ gone to ‘advanced’ then ticked ‘allow other network users to connect through this internet connection’. When I did this it showed my wireless connection as being connected but the request for ISP address still times out. When I go into the status box for my wireless connection it shows data being received byt none is being sent back.

  37. 37 qwewr

    Lee thompson,(not local connection) you go to the company who supplies your internet connections icon and from there Right click on PROPERTIES then ADVANCED then allow others to connect…
    So if PIPEX is your internet provider and you have their supplied speedtouch modem you would Rightclick on their Speedtouch Connection icon and set it there……

    The twin monitor icon that shows your connection speed in the bottom right of the taskbar will show you what connection you need to set on when you hold the mouse pointer over it (usally top line of info)….

  38. 38 Lee Thompson

    I’m with Blueyonder via Telewest Broadband and there is no icon on my PC for either of these

  39. 39 Duane

    Well it seems as if i’ve got mine setup for my psp correctly as i can connect to the internet on my psp, the only problem is it connects for about 2 minutes, then disconnects me and when i try connect again it says ‘access point cannot be found’. I really am frustrated now as i get so close, anyone have any idea why it will connect momentarily and then won’t even find the access point? Any help would be appreciated.

  40. 40 conquer001

    So, folks! Just a question for those who managed to make the WifiMAX work, or not.
    Question 1: What Operating System are you currently using?

    AND

    Question 2: If you are using Windows XP Professional, are you using Service Pack 1 or 2?

    Thanks folks! And please do indicate whether your WifiMAX component works or not. :)

  41. 41 Duane

    im using windows xp with service pack 2, wifi max seems to work fine but the psp will not see it as an access point each time.

  42. 42 andy

    yer i got same prob here go o this site it tells uwhat dsn to put in

  43. 43 andy
  44. 44 David

    I have a windows XP, service pack 2, and I have telewest broadband/blueyonder. I also have a wireless router linking this computer to a laptop. However this router is not compatible. Every time i try and hook up my ds to the internet it finds the connection, then when it tests, it displays ERROR 51300 i think, anyway the message is “cannot obtain IP address”.

    PLEASE HELP ME I DONT WANT TO HAVE WASTED MY MONEY ON THIS THING!

  45. 45 dav

    David, do you mean you are trying to run the WIFI and “another” wireless connection from the same PC ??…………..

  46. 46 David

    yes, but that shouldn’t stop it doing anything

  47. 47 dav

    The Datel WIFI will run your “laptop” as well as the DS so maybe you should try the WIFI only and disable any other wireless connections to rule out conflicts……..

  48. 48 Chrinkster

    What the problem was with me was that i shared the connection with Local Area Connextion 3 instead of my ISP.I should have read it carefully.lol.

  49. 49 Lee Thompson

    David – I have the same set up as you and have spent hours trying to get this thing to work. Datel are hopeless and constantly keep sending me the same info. I’d be interested if you get this to work as I’m ready for using it as an a**e scratcher!

  50. 50 stevo

    I am just installing the software for PSP wifi max. I selected the Apache server option which then requests details of my server address and the administrators email address etc. It doesn’t allow me to proceed without the fields being completed. What should I enter?

  51. 51 andy

    wifi max is shit it only works when it wants 2

  52. 52 Dan Hayman

    Hey I just got my WiFi Max and it worked for about 5 minutes then I tried to connect to it again and Obtaining the IP Address just times out. I’ve already gone onto control panel then Network Connection and all that.
    It would be highly appreciated if you could help me.
    Thanks a lot
    Dan

  53. 53 Lee Thompson

    Not just me then – Datel have now sent me the same info for a 3rd time – quality support eh!

  54. 54 Dan Hayman

    I think I know whats wrong with my connection now.
    My Wireless Internet Connection has “Limited or no connectivity”
    Please tell me how to get connectivity please!
    Yeah Ive already emailed datel so Ill be expecting all the same information.

  55. 55 Lee Thompson

    I got around this problem by sharing the internet connection – although that’s as far as I got as I cam up against the IP address problem after that

  56. 56 zaheer

    i have a psp and the isp
    doesnt time out but it says DNS error
    please help

  57. 57 Guillaume

    This LINK should help!

    Althoug, if the device you’re using to connect to the internet doesn’t show up in the ZDWlan Bridge section, then I am not sure what can be done.

    G*

  58. 58 Lee Thompson

    Yeah that’s what codejunkies keep sending – still no progress though. Has anyone used their rip off £1 per minute line? I’m tempted to call to finally resolve my problem but the call will probably cost more than the max drive.

  59. 59 Lee Thompson

    Sorry I meant Wifi Max

  60. 60 Ginge

    I have found what to do for no connection/limioted connection

    right click>repair

    then when its nearly done it, close the window. if it still says limited/no connectivity, re-connect to the internet, if it still dosn’t work, i have no idea.

  61. 61 Ginge

    oh and by the way, i am not using Apache or anything. I just didn’t instal a server.

  62. 62 ryan white

  64. 64 Gary Trouve

    Hello,

    I am using windows 98 second edition, i have a motorola speedtouch usb adsl cable and my only problem is that i cannot find the modem in the bridge section. Does anyone know how to resolve this? I have tried to contact datel but still no reply. The message i am getting is ‘ip address timed out’, i am guessing because there is no bridge. I will be happy to help anyone elso with other needs.

    Regards, Gary.

  65. 65 Chrismitchell

    To Get past the ip, clicl on your wireless connection setongs, click on the tab support and click details.
    Then on your psp go on custom, and submit your ip address found on details.

  66. 66 bundun

    thank you jonah for your guide. very helpful

  67. 67 philliprodgers

    what do you put in ‘network domain’, and ‘administrators email’?

  68. 68 Stu

    I have the same problems as most people in the threads above do.I keep getting an ip cannot be obtained error with this code 80410507.Then my psp will not even detect the access point on the second attempt and i have to remove the dongle and reboot to get the access point to connect to the psp only to recieve ip cannot be obtained error again.When it loses its connection and cannot find the access point the tx reading is 0 on the software (zdwlan).I am using a router and i have disabled dhcp and also made sure that its bridged to the right nic card.I have tried it with a Win xp pro machine i have and also a WIN98 SE machine but both do the same thing.Anyone got any advice they can offer before i send the f**ker back and get a refund.Its gone 3am GMT and i still up bashing away @ this i wont let it beat me.Cheers

  69. 69 Stu

    It beat me i am sending it back its a waste of money and a waste of my time.Will just buy a £35 d-link access point instead i should have done that in the first place.I am keeping a backup of the wifi max media software that will come in handy with my usb cable but they can stick the rest of the package up there a*se its sh*te.If anybody reads these threads before buying one then look and learn like i should have done or you might just be loaning your cash out to a company before you get a refund coz thats most likely what the end result will be.

  70. 70 asdas

    Stu, The WIFI max which can handle your PSP, DS , PDA and laptop from it’s connection so why are you trying to run another wireless connection from the same point ?.

    If anybody reads these threads before buying one then look and learn, lf you don’t understand how to set up a connection properly then it’s proberly best that you get someone who can do it properly for you……………

  71. 71 A badworkman always blames his tools

    STU, whay are you trying to run “TWO” wireless connections from the same PC ????????

  72. 72 Lee Thompson

    The whole point of wifi max is that it’s supposed to be straight forward – If I knew how to set up a wireless connection I’d have spent a few extra quid. I wouldn’t mind if codemasters offered any proper help instead of just churning out the same solutions each time – they can’t even read my emails!

  73. 73 mellowmellow

    Hi there,
    I have hack my DS to be able to play homebrew. I can’t get my WIFI to work, is this caused by the hack that I did?

    I manage to connect my PSP online, but I couldn’t find anyone to play with me! This is suck! No game! But I can’t even detect my DS connecting to my WIFI max. I wonder why.

    Anyone have a solution for me?

    Thanks,

  74. 74 Will

    hi all

    I had a problem with ‘obtaining the IP address’ on my PSP and i have been reading this for help, and i (atlast) managed to get my WiFi MAX to help, so thanks so much to everyone who helped!

    Im using speedtouch and i think thats where the problems are mostly, so ill TRY to share with anyone who still cant connect how i did it, i know how frustrating it is lol!

    1. First i set my IP on my WiFi dongle to 192.168.0.1 and my subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 and i put my preferred DNS server to 61.171.70.72

    2. I went into the LAN connection and put ‘aquire IP automatically’ and turned the ‘allow other users to connect using this connection’ (or something like that) on.

    3. I repaired my WiFi connection using right click ‘repair’

    4. I searched for a dongle and called my connection ‘connection 1′. On network, i set my PSP to address custom, IP automatic and DNS manual and entered 61.171.70.72 and searched for the connection. Save ‘connection 1′ and test the connection. it found the IP but couldnt connect to the internet.

    5. change the speedtouch to ‘allow other users to connect using this connection’ and searched on my PSP using ‘connection 1′.

    The reason why it worked i think is because the WiFi needed the LAN to be shared to aquire the IP address, then it needs the speedtouch router to be shared to connect to the internet, obviously. I hope this helps anyone and good luck!

  75. 75 mellowmellow

    Hi there,
    I already manage to connect my PSP to my computer and it’s connected to the internet. But When I start my burnout (game), it did not connect to the net instead it’s searching for a connection around me.

    It didn’t connect to the WIFI max. =(

    Oh man, it’s so frustating.

  76. 76 mellowmellow

    EH my NDS is working
    I just now, it can only play Mario Kart, Prime Hunters (metroid), Animal Crossing and one more…aarggg I ….ooh! Tony Hawk… I was forgot before =P

    I play mario kart without a problem.

    Mail me for the setting I’ll let u know.
    Cheers,

  77. 77 mike

    does the nintendo usb adapter work with the psp

  78. 78 Gabby

    WiFi Max dongle appears to not work with Mac.

    My wife bought this on the off chance that it might work on our G4 running OSX 10.3. but it simply doesn’t recognise there is any hardware plugged into the USB ports.

    I think it would work if someone at Datel had the sense to build a driver for Macintosh, and it would have been helpful to maybe say that it would only work on Windows based PC’s on the packaging/descriptions.

    Looks like us Mac owners will have to shell out substantially more cash to hook up PSP’s to wifi!

  79. 79 RIPSTER

    I NOW KNOW WHY THEY ENCLOSED THAT TIDY LENGTH OF DONGLE…..TO FKIN HANG YOUSELF AFTER A FEW HOURS OF SHEER HELL.

    Does anyone have AOL ?
    If they do and thier nds wifi max is working then plz help me !!!!!

  81. 81 owen101

    I had the same problem (could not get IP address) connecting my Datel WiFi Max to my DS. I have a wireless router already but was not compatible (Netopia 3347NWG – too fast).

    first (XP home edition):

    control panel/network connections
    double click wireless network connection
    click properties
    advanced
    enable ‘Allow other network users to connect through internet connection. select the wireless connection of the WiFi max dongle (in this case Wireless Network Connection2)in the dropdown.
    click ok.

    After a minute or two that should fix the ‘limited or no conectivity’ problem.

    DS settings:

    WEP key – enabled.
    auto obtain ip address – no
    ip address – I added ’10′ to the ip address of the WiFi max dongle in this case 192.168.0.11
    subnet – 255.255.255.0
    gateway – 192.168.0.1 (Important. The ip address of the Wifi max dongle)
    auto obtain dns – no
    primary – the dns address given in the config page of the Netopia 3347NWG.
    secondary – as above.

    After doing all that the DS connected instantly and having no problems since. playing mario kart.

    Has to be said hardly the user-friendly experience I was expecting.

    owen101

  82. 82 owen101

    sorry spoke too soon, keeps disconnecting after 2 races. This is exactly what happens if I just connect the DS directly to the router so no better off with the Wifi max dongle.

    Is there anyway of limiting the transmission speed of the dongle?

    thanks

  83. 83 owen101

    V strange.

    Re-installed the Wifi dongle (but this time with it plugged into the laptop during the driver install) and have just been online for an hour without dropping connection once. Same settings as above but with a 64-bit (10 character) WEP key instead of a 128-bit.

    Was worth the grief, MK is a cracker of an online multiplayer game. Pity there’s no post race chat or taunting tho.

    How come we are not hearing more about these connection problems in the media?

  84. 84 Lee Thompson

    I’ve tried leaving 2 negative reviews on Datel’s website yet they refuse to post them – they obviously only post the glowing ones (wonder where they came from)

  85. 85 Johnny

    how do you find your Primary and secondary DNS on windows xp?

  86. 86 hux

    i got this dongle installed it and shared it it connects on my computer but on my psp i get a ds error this fings fukin shite fukin waste of shittin cuntin money

    GOODLUCK !

  88. 88 George

    Hello,

    Does anyone else have the problem that the computer altogether doesn’t detect the device? I installed the program for it, but when I opened up the media manager program, it still tells me to put the dongle in the USB port even though it’s already in there. Please help!!! Thanks.

  89. 89 Shamrock

    Try switching usb ports

  90. 90 George

    I tried. Even tried on 2 diff comps. Any other suggestions?

  91. 91 Shamrock

    Re-instal and restart your comp

  92. 92 George

    Tried that, too. Thanks for the suggestions, though. Right now, I’m thinking it has something to do with the driver. When I put the dongle in there, the driver installation wizard isn’t able to find a driver, so it doesn’t install it. I currently have Windows XP Home Edition, and it doesn’t seem like there’s a driver for it in the CD that came with the dongle. Do you know where I can find a driver for the dongle?

    After reading all the problems people are having with thier PSP WIFI connections I feel a less stupid…! I have spent hours trying to figure out what is going on.. Many of the problems I am having seem to be pissing alot of other people off!!! .

    I am using a PC windows xp home

    When my WIFI is connected I get the message “connection has limited or no connectivity” What can I do to fix this problem??? I tried checking the box allowing other network users to connect to the internet connection in Netwok connections. This still does not help. I tried turning off my Firewall nada reinstalling the driver bla bla bla.. NO LUCK and lots of wasted time!!!!!

    My PSP ALWAYS gets a connection error as it attempts to obtain the IP address!!!! Any more tips out there for me. PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!! nacman68@hotmail.com

    I am very frustrated with this overpriced gizmo. It should not be put on the market if it has so many problems with it!!! SHAME on the company for their crap service and product!!!!!!

    My Datel usb adapter works fine.

    Problems i seem to have discovered though

    1)must give your ds/psp static ip adress so you can let it through the firewall of your pc
    2)if your wireless router doesnt work with the ds or psp then the datel usb is doubtfully going to work as its going still going through the router all be it as a wired signal now. (dont ask me why)
    3)My datel usb adapter quite often says limited or no connectivity but still work fine when i connect to it via my ds

    It does work fine though. I’ve never had to tick ” allow other computer to connect through this connection”

    Its has a really good range and I’ve never had any problems with it since giving my ds a static I.P. It is a really top class product as it can act as a usb station as well, so your getting two for the price of one, An access point and a station.

    hey man this is really fusturating well how do u change the IP adress of the Wifi Max dongle because i keep getting the error message like everybody else its saying a connection error has occure. the attempt ro obtain the IP adress timed out. dang i really need help i tried everythng i can think about so i just need to noe how to change the Ip adress of the Dongle

  100. 100 John

    hey emissary can u help me how did urs work well i have a PSP and u said domthing about setting a static IP to ur DS so how can i do that to my PSP?

  101. 101 emissary

    i am not sure how to do it on a psp sorry, should be in your instructions somewhere

    to give the wifi max dongle a static I.P you have to go into network connections and then right click the wireless connection for the dongle. Click properties and then click internet protcol (tcp/ip) then click properties again. A screen will come up and here you can click on “use following I.P. address” and then look at your routers settings to add an I.P. address to the wifi max outside of your DHCP range (very important). then add the I.P. you gave to the wifi max to the trusted zone of your firewall, and possibly even your routers firewall aswell. then open up all your UDP and TCP ports on your router just for the static I.P. of the DS/PSP (make sure you get this right or you will get hacked to hell) Past this i cannot help.

    Oh, one more point if your PC connects to a wireless router via wifi and your trying to connect the wifi max up to this pc , it probably wont work. The computer your using the wifi max on has to have a wired connection.

    past this info I cant help sorry. It works great on my xp sp2. I’m using zonealarm free as the firewall on my pc.

    I’m reading this back in its very complex , sorry.

  102. 102 emissary

    just as a side note, I didnt really notice a difference when giving a static I.P. to the wifi max, I only got a postive outcome when i gave a static I.P. to the DS. your problems sound either firewall related or router related. the ds must be allowed all access to the internet so open all ports for it (hence the static I.P. for the DS outside the DHCP range of your router so your DS is totally unrestricted on the net but everything else is protected)

    Hope you guys get it fixed, its a great product once its working,

    I was ready to smash my wifi up the the wall, i thought i must be a right thicky not
    being able to work it out.
    But after reading all the comments on here, its cheered me up no end especially the one about using the cable to hang your self with lol.
    Ive got a dvd rom from a mate with loads of psp programmes on psp web browsing and
    ipsp for windows i’ll let you know if there of any help cheers

  105. 105 March 2006

    Zone alarm free users, try putting ALL FOUR options to allow(ticks) in the PROGRAM CONTROL Generic HOST Processes I found that in mine the last one was preset to question mark but didn’t ask me permission it was just blocking the WIFI (giving the limited or no connectivity) so I put allow on all four boxes and the problem was sorted……………………

  106. 106 owen101

    re emissary & “computer your using the wifi max on has to have a wired connection”.

    Thats incorrect as MK always froze after 2 races connecting the DS to the wireless router directly (Netopia 3347NWG).

    No more freezes after connecting to the wifi max (running on a laptop connected wirelessly to the Netopia router.

    Lee thompson,(not local connection) you go to the company who supplies your internet connections icon and from there Right click on PROPERTIES then ADVANCED then allow others to connect…
    So if PIPEX is your internet provider and you have their supplied speedtouch modem you would Rightclick on their Speedtouch Connection icon and set it there……

    The twin monitor icon that shows your connection speed in the bottom right of the taskbar will show you what connection you need to set on when you hold the mouse pointer over it (usally top line of info)….

    Don’t know if this will help anyone but i had dns error when i tried to load web page. Turns out the that either psp or wifi max dongle will not work with AOL, cos aol force you to use their own software to connect to the web that has some weird effect on things. I finally found a way round it by using a proxy server. you can download the free server that i used at http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network/proxy.htm
    Here’s what worked for me -Go to control panel/ network connections. (I’m using windows XP) right click over the modem you use to connect to the internet and view its status. click on support tab and make a note of the IP address. close control panel windows. also get the wifi max up and running (make sure windows firewall is switched off for now – you can do this in network connections window if u want.) Now get the psp and go to its network settings. set up new connection, scan for the wifi max. when you get to address settings select custom. select automatic for IP address settings, automatic for DNS setting. Choose ‘Use’ for Proxy server. In proxy server part, enter the IP address you noted down earlier, and in the port section enter 6588. then move on to end and save settings. On your PC connect to web using aol and also launch the proxy server software (it will appear as little green icon at bottom of screen). Now test you internet connection on psp and to my insurmountable joy i found it succeeded. this at least was how i got round the final problem of getting the thing to work with bloody AOL. hope it helps anyone else using AOL and getting the same dns 80410410 server connection error that goaded me for days.

  109. 109 Ed

    by the way find the proxy server mentioned above works for surfing the web but haven’t tested it for online gaming so don’t know if proxy server will support online gaming. hope it does!

    Hi Ed
    thanks for the help with AOL but im having problems when i try connecting to the internet now on my psp the internet connection still comes back as failed
    do u have to configue anything out in ‘proxy’ or in internet options.
    when i did try loading a webpage i got an error 80431064
    thanks in advance

  111. 111 Toby

    Hi Ed, thanks for your help so far with the AOL problem
    but i still cannot connect it says that it cannot connect to the internet. Are there any options or configurations you have to put into internet options or in ‘proxy’?
    how did you know what port to use?
    if it helps the error i got when i tried loading a page was 80431064
    Thanks, Toby

  112. 112 Toby

    i just got rid of that previous error, now im getting a server error
    8001006F
    any ideas what this may be?
    Cheers

  113. 113 Boots

    If you switched off the windows firewall try also turning off the neccesary hidden settings i.e right click on your internet connection then click change Windows firewall settings then click Advanced then look at the Network connection settings you should be able to see from there if you need to change anything……………………

  114. 114 ericchen

    how do you make it work with win 98 second edition

  115. 115 ICEBERG

    IAM having the same problem the ip address and time out.this thing is crap.i called the rep and they couldnt help me.

  116. 116 Ed

    i actually had to run network setup wizard in control panel before wifi max would work with computer and find ip address. Make sure you select option ‘This computer connects directly to internet. The other computers on my network connect to internet throuigh this computer.’ Then next step choose your internet connection/modem and then just follow steps (make sure your wifi max is plugged in and running (having chosen access point in zdlan programme) before running network wizard.
    Then i just made sure all firewalls were turned off and i’d done everything else mentioned on this forum like the sharing bit. that’s when i found problem with aol and used the proxy server (the 6588 number was just the one given in the readme file for the proxy server), make sure proxy server and aol programme are running and it finally all came togther and worked. By the way the proxy server only needed cos i’m on AOL cos apparently the AOL software doesn’t allow sharing. i guess its all a matter of fiddling around till stupid thing decides to work. It will work eventually!

  117. 117 Toby

    thanks alot ed, ive got it all working as a matter of fact this reply is using my psp xD,
    my biggest tip for anyone: dont give up it will work in the end, it does seem fustrating at times but just come on this forum i will be willing to help anyone who has problems.
    oh and about the windows 98 problem, on the cd there is the drivers for windows 98

    Thanks for your help Ed , i have made some progress now. First of all i started with the DNS errors but now thanks to reading this article i have internet access, again well done ED.However what i really bought the wi-fi max for was infrastructure gaming , unfortunately this doesnt work for gaming ive tried connecting to socom but it keeps coming up server could not be found….so any suggestions for configuring so i can play online games would be appreciated

    oh by the way id just like to add AOL customer support is appalling so just remember that if u decide to switch ISP’S

  122. 122 Barry

    Id just like to give a progress report ,

    After a lengthy drawn out afternoon in front of the computer trying to sort this damn thing out , ive given up …..Been on live help chat on Aol for what seems like eternity telling them that the reason my wi fi (for games) doesnt work is down to them , of course they denied it , saying it was something to do with Sony (which of course we know is all bollocks ,they are just trying to shift the blame) i know for a fact wi-fi max works (a mate has a connection running through tiscali) just not with Aol at the time being …Anyway to stop me waffling and to cut a long story short all these arguments ending up with me telling them to stuff their connection and phone up the member services helpline and ask for my mac code (something u need to change your ISP) to which there was an immediate climbdown and i was offered a platinum package upgrade with a free wireless router !

    So there is no way of setting up wi-fi max through Aol with adsl connection ,during one of the arguments with a chap from live help i was told that Aol uses dynamic IP adress instead of Static which apparently u need a static (fixed) connection to play wi-fi , i ll let u know how i get on with the router.

  123. 123 Lee Thompson

    Not just AOL mate – Telewest won’t work either – still, the support from Datel is Dog Sh*t. Something should be done

    Regards, Ryan

  139. 139 Mr.44

    Peopl with Trouble getting IP Address, DNS Errors, AOL Problems or anything of that sort. I had all those problems at different times, i fixed some by screwing up my computer, but all them went away and i now am using msn messenger on my psp and all that good stuff.

    Bridge your local LAN netork connection and your Wireless connection together by highlighting the two of them, right click and select Bridge Connection.
    This will solve alot of problems you might be having. After bridging your connections, run ZDWlan and you should get a Connection Availiable notification icon, if not then try connecting with your PSP anyway, it may just not have registered with your computer but you still may have a connection! Also make sure you have your Local LAN connection selected as your bridge adapter in the ZDWlan software.

    I hope this helps some of you.

  140. 140 Jesse

    ^^ i just tried that and it disconnected me from my internet. do i have to remoive the windows firewall? i have XP Pro and SP2.

  147. 147 Dom

    i have finally got my dongle working. Dont ask how just lots of messing around. My trouble now is that everytime i do connect i lose my IP address after disconnecting. To solve this i have to keep clicking repair on the support tab in properties. Unfortunately this means i cant get more than 1 device to work at any one time. Any comments?

  149. 149 james

    just to let ppl know that i had many of the problems you lot had and i called up the support line and they didnt help with sh*t all they told me that the wifi max device is still workin even when it says limited or no connection which i thought was bullsh*t but keep messing with things and it will eventually work, but make sure you remember what you changed just incase you need to change it back. good luck

  150. 150 Blackhawk

    its rubbish ive tried loads to get it working and it still wont work, ive got as far as ti picks up the connection on my psp and does all that stuff then i save the settings then i test the connection and it goes through obtaining ip address and then testing internet connection and then the results look ok bbut at the bottom it says internet connection failed and when i try to use the web browser it wont connect, all i can use it for now is the software and i paid £2o and that aint worth it just for the software and a stick !!!

    Help!

  151. 151 Nick

    i bought this thing at hmv. i put the disc in the pc, but the pc wouldnt read it. im not sure why. i took it back in case of a faulty disc, and the second one i got had the same problem. i just thought this is never going to work, so i traded it in for gran turismo 4 (good game btw, worth buying, coming out on psp end of this year). And just now, all the stuff you need 4 it to work is on the internet. Rather annoyed about that! oh welly well well. I might go and get it again. with all the useful info above, im sure ill work out to use it :)

  152. 152 Big K

    Hi there, i bought this thinking it will work straightaway without all this haggle, i believed the company sayin ‘CONNECT YOUR PSP WIRELESSLY TO THE INTERNET -ITS QUICK AND EASY. I waited a week for this bast*** to arrive, and ran to ma pc thinkin it of a 5 min job…..its been 3 fu*** full days now, no results….always saying dns error..and when testing the connection it states the internet has ‘failed’, i am a aol user and yes i have tried all of the above but when i try to connect the new connection..that fails aswell. AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Im telin ya..im not that bad a computers but this i doing MA HEAD IN!!! PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

  153. 153 owen101

    Well it works perfectly for me and thats using a laptop connected to an incompatible (with the DS) wireless router so you must be thick or something. I suggest put it back in its box and do a typing course instead Big K.

    Superb little device, as it also works as a receiver. Highly recommended.

  154. 154 Chris

    Yeah Owen Lucky you!

    As you can see th rest of us a are pissed and cant belive we were duped!

  155. 155 sean

    How can i use this with the iTunes streamer.

  156. 156 Dom

    hi ive had trouble since day one with this device. Ive managed to install it the following way on Windows XP and so far ive been able to connect via my DS every time.

    Install Drivers from CD. If CD doesnt auto run then double click your cd drive and choose setup.

    Once program and drivers are installed insert the Wifi dongle into your USB port.

    Open the ZD wireless configuration tool,choose mode as access point, note the channel number and go into More setting…

    Change the Bridge Adapter to the device that connects to the internet.

    Next go into the Wifi Max program. For the Ds this program is called NDS Wifi Max. make sure that the channel matches the same channel as in ZD config and the network card is your internet access device (as what you selected for bridge adapter)

    Go into Control Panel

    Double click Network Setup Wizard

    If you go through this and select that your computer connects directly to the internet then what device does so (windows usually pre-selects it). It will ask what connection then connects the copmuter to others (choose the wireless connection- the ZDplan device)

    Keep clicking through next and it should set it all up for you even configuring your firewall.

    The tool bar may still say no signal strength but this shouldnt stop you connecting.

    Like i say, it worked for me. So far.

  157. 157 Pavan

    hi, i get a succesful connection with my wifi-max for internet browser, but when i try infastructure mode on any of my games it will not work.

  171. 171 Reece Akhtar

    Hey, i’ve managed to get past the IP thing with AOL.

    Right you Install your Wifi max and then right click on your main connection(local area) then click on properties the go ADVANCED and click ‘share this connection’.
    However, now when i try to connect to the internet of my PSP it says:

    DNS error 80410410

    Anyone know how to get past this.

    Please email me at rekuss@aol.com

  172. 172 reece akhtar

    hey this is an update to get passed the dns bit.

    Don’t know if this will help anyone but i had dns error when i tried to load web page. Turns out the that either psp or wifi max dongle will not work with AOL, cos aol force you to use their own software to connect to the web that has some weird effect on things. I finally found a way round it by using a proxy server. you can download the free server that i used at http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network/proxy.htm
    Here’s what worked for me -Go to control panel/ network connections. (I’m using windows XP) right click over the modem you use to connect to the internet and view its status. click on support tab and make a note of the IP address. close control panel windows. also get the wifi max up and running (make sure windows firewall is switched off for now – you can do this in network connections window if u want.) Now get the psp and go to its network settings. set up new connection, scan for the wifi max. when you get to address settings select custom. select automatic for IP address settings, automatic for DNS setting. Choose ‘Use’ for Proxy server. In proxy server part, enter the IP address you noted down earlier, and in the port section enter 6588. then move on to end and save settings. On your PC connect to web using aol and also launch the proxy server software (it will appear as little green icon at bottom of screen). Now test you internet connection on psp and to my insurmountable joy i found it succeeded. this at least was how i got round the final problem of getting the thing to work with bloody AOL. hope it helps anyone else using AOL and getting the same dns 80410410 server connection error that goaded me for days.

    Thanks for your help Ed , i have made some progress now. First of all i started with the DNS errors but now thanks to reading this article i have internet access, again well done ED.However what i really bought the wi-fi max for was infrastructure gaming , unfortunately this doesnt work for gaming ive tried connecting to socom but it keeps coming up server could not be found….so any suggestions for configuring so i can play online games would be appreciated

    oh by the way id just like to add AOL customer support is appalling so just remember that if u decide to switch ISP’S

  173. 173 Pavan

    Johnny,

    yes it does work without a bridged connection, infact that is how i got the wifi max user site and infrastructure on games to work.

  174. 174 Jonny

    Oh okay, I bridged to internet network card, anyway, sometimes it works properly and when you click on it in properties it says no signal, because it’s not connected, when you test connection or connect it changes to Excellent, Very Good etc. So guys, don’t think that its an error.

    Oh, by the way Reece, I posted a comment on how to use it with AOL.

    Remember to set the network to find the dongle like in this picture, accessed by right clicking the dongle (advanced settings):
    http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/9195/wifimax7by.png

  175. 175 Reece

    Hey, does anyone hav any getting this to work with online games like SOCOM. I have that proxy server i was told about but now when ever i try to play online, it says there are no servers.

    Rekuss@aol.com

  176. 176 Garnet

    Hi
    I have managed to get connected but it cuts off after 2 minutes and when i try to reconnect it cant find the dongle thingy so I have to reboot pc. I read on an earlier post the somebody had same problem but there was no reply. This thing is a nightmare. Any ‘helpful’ suggestions???

  177. 177 Steffan

    Hi, guys. I’ve got it working perfectly on my PC. But, I would like to get it working on my Mac. Will it work on a Mac? Does anyone have software that will let me use it on my Mac?

    My e-mail address is: Griffo569@hotmail.com

    Thanks,

    -Steffan

  178. 178 Datel_are_shite

    Got this for £28 – “connect your DS wirelessly – it’s quick and easy” quick and easy my arse – - get the b**tards in court under Trades Desctiption Act. Followed all the bits of advice on this site and still doesn’t work – I’ve had more use out of my broken biro. This is a waste of cash, load of crap, shite build quality and poor instructions – SAVE YOUR CASH and buy groceries instead. Datel should be shut down for selling this over priced shite.

  179. 179 fraser

    Is there any difference between the psp and ds version????

  180. 180 zain

    ok guys its pretty simple to set up. first go to teh datel media manager, options, then wifi, and make sure channel is on 1 and SSID name is : PSP_WIFI_DONGLE

    then on the bottom click on ‘auto-fix’.

    it’ll fix it. when the zydas thing comes up, go to ‘options’ and see if:

    Channel is 1
    SSID is PSP_WIFI_DONGLE
    and the type is : WIRELESS 802.11(dunnoexactly) b g mixed

    needs to be mixed. also make sure its connected to the right connection. Mine is realtek. try yours. If it can’t obtain ip, then you need to reset your modem. take out plug, wait 2 sec., then put it back in, and create connection on your psp and it’ll work, BUT THEN THE COMPUTER WON’T BE ABLE TO GET THE IP.

    You can only have 1 thing using the ip at once. so when you disconnected and re-connected, or restarted your modem, you routed the ip free, and the first thing to pick it up, the psp, took it. To get your pc back on, take out modem wire, wait 30 sec, plug back in, restart pc. there ya go.

    If this is too much, just enter everything manually on your psp. The ip, dns, everything.

  181. 181 Who Cares?

    I have a problem, my psp can find the IP address and does connect put when i test the connection is says failed. I would set my isp to “shared” but its not on the network connections page. For example i am connected to the internet now but if i look on the network connections page none of the isp’s on that page says connected it all says disconnected or or disabled, even though i’m on the internet! Is it hidden or is My ISP somewhere else by the way its BT Broadband.

  182. 182 Jonny

    “Who Cares?”, you should have followed the instructions I set but change aol to BT.
    I will repeat for BT Broadband users.

    1. Click Start and got to the Control panel…

    2. Choose Network Connections…

    3. Then choose create a new connection…

    4. A window like this should appear, click next…

    5. Select Connect to the internet and click next…

    6. Choose set up my connection manually and click next…

    7. Choose connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password and click next…

    8. Type BT Broadband as your ISP name and click next…

    9. Enter your BT Broadband username (include the @bt.com or whatever it is) and password, make sure the two boxes are checked and click next…

    10. Check the box if you want a shortcut to the connection that you have just made, if you don’t leave it blank and click next…

    11. Uninstall the Wi-Fi USB connector.

    12. Re-install it or just install it.

    13. Right click the internet settings in network settings, and go to the advanced, and allow internet to be used and check all the boxes in settings.

  183. 183 Who Cares?

    Theres still a problem it says there is no response from the computer that i dailed (or something like that) when i dail BT. I had a wireless network previously. Oh and i set up a new connection its down under WAN Miniport (PPPOE) is this supposed to be the right one because i can’t change it. You also mention right click internet settings in network settings? Where is this? I have windiws XP by the way. If anyone or Jonny can help it’ll be much appreciated!

  184. 184 Who Cares?

    After i test my connection it gives me a list at the bottom of the list it says connection failed. Like i mentioned before it already finds the ip address. My computer says the connection signal is excellent(100%) and that the WiFi Max is connected but i’m still in no mans land. I’ve started to tired of this. No wonder its only 29 pounds i should have got a real wiresless router.

  185. 185 Dial up

    Someone please tell me if i will be able to surf the net and play games with this thing using a dial up connection?

  186. 186 does work with ntl

    i got wifi max it works on my computer but i get cut off aswell so having to reapir the donlge to reset it all the time crashes my machine oay heres how to work it on windows

    1.in ZDWlan find ur psps or ds mac adresses enter it into mac filetering on zd
    2. if u got a windows firewall or another tell it to accept the psp or ds signal or just shut the wall down
    3.tehers some certain numbers u got to enter on ur wifi dongle go to network connections and right clikc it and go to tc/htpt whatever its called its like a mini scrolll menu and then properties and then it will oferr u to manually enter and ip adress and dns and all that. I did find a site that had all the numbers but i forgot sorry
    4 sharing ur connection go to network connections and go the internet connection u use and right clikc it and got to advanced and tick for sharing connection if u got antyhing eles on ur comp like a bluetooth thing disable it.

  187. 187 krauserburger

    HELP!!! i tried to install my wifimax and it said that the WIFI MAX was not tested by “the microsoft windows logo” and that potetialy fatal viruses and errors may occur in the futur…WHATS UP WITH THAT!!! did anyone else get that message!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

  188. 188 XenoSabre

    krauserburger, don’t worry about that. Win. XP says that about alot of third party software/hardware. Its just Microsoft’s way of convincing people to buy their and their affiliates products.

  189. 189 Mr.

    Can i use the wifi max with the ds if i have the software for psp?

  190. 190 Dial up

    So does that mean that it will work with a dial up connection?

  191. 191 Jonny

    Yes, it should work on dial-up but nintendo says it will lag (people have proved it wrong)

  192. 192 Jonny

    I mean Nintendo WiFi should be able to connect when you have a dial-up connection instead of broadband.

  193. 193 Michael

    Has anyone got WiFi Max working on BT Broadband? If so how do I get it to work?

    My Signal Strength is “No Signal”.
    My Status is “Limited or no connectivity”.

    Any solutions?

  194. 194 Who Cares

    I’ve finally managed to get my wifi max connected on my BT Broadband. The thing is to download drivers for BT broadband at the website (or order one its up to you). But make sure you deleted your old connetion (it’ll tell you to do so anyway). Once you’ve installed the new drivers go to network connections (in the control panel) go to the new connection (the one you’ve just installed) go to properties and make sure its shared, the wireless should now say connected (with a strong signal). I personally think this works with all the service providers not just BT.

  195. 195 david

    yeah i just bought this psp wifi max and ive spent over 2 hours tryin to set it up. i’ve been online with it before at the library and i even updated it. every time i try to get on the internet, my psp finds the access point. but then it says an error occured and i need to check my security settings. i opened all the firewalls but still nothing. can someone help me or refer me to somewhere. i dont want to waste 50 bucks.

  196. 196 Coldfire

    Ok so im pretty sure ive figured out the strategy … (this things about as user friendly as a f***ing crap covered banana) to getting it to work fully no hickups.
    1. Install and follow the instructions.
    2. Since you are making a wireless acces point and not actually trying to get your own comp to connect to one, find your main connection (mine was local area connection) basically the one u normally connect to the internet to.
    3.Open it up and make it shared like everone else has said, now since you have made your main connection shared you dont need to worry about all that other BS about sharing your wireless, its the main that needs to be shared so that your wireless can connect to it, thats whats been hanging everyone up.
    4. Dont even touch the wireless settings, just repair them and give it a second to refresh and all. The connection should work now, now go test it on your PSP.
    Hope this helps.

  197. 197 psp man

    u know the wifi max u know where to get the ip adress and default router primary Dns and secondary dns plzzzzz

  211. 211 Tom

    Hi. I have just one question. I just had the damn thing working, and now it isn’t because of the IP thing. Is there a way to use my PSP internet and my computer internet at the same time, using the same IP? I think that is my problem.

  227. 227 Dan

    I bought a wifi max and i returned it 2 days after. It cannot be used with windows xp and the ip adress is always timed out. If it worked it would be a really good item, but to get it working takes something different than windows because they did not digitally sign it.

  228. 228 dom

    WTF?!?!?!?!?!

    You idiot!

    Click ‘Continue Anyway…’ or whatever..

    Just because they havn;t signed it doesn’t mean you can’t use it!!!!

    Get it back!

    And it works with XP!!!

    You just can’t work an internet connection…

  229. 229 josh

  235. 235 Nightshot

    Mine says there are no network connections available… even though i have broadband internet… any ideas?

  236. 236 psp

    are all these problems only with the early versions of wifi max? will I have these same problems if I go pick one up today at Bestbuy?

  237. 237 Poepketel

    I think i have found the answer to find out whether this device will work for you:

    1) Install it
    2) Test it
    3) Works? If yes good stuff. If no : Get rid of it immediately, it WILL drive you crazy.

    Important things:

    1) USB modems are always a problem seeing as the MAX software usually does not detect it as a device from where the internet signal is sourced, ie your MAX will never work. It searches for network devices.

    2) Use an ethernet connection, save yourself the hassle. ie if you have a USB modem replace with ethernet modem/router.

    3) Firewalls are always a problem, shut down whilst installing.

    I know this might sound a bit mixed but a few good pointers.

  238. 238 dominic

    Although, just because you have a USB Modem, it doesn’t mean the Wifi Max won’t work.

    Ie. Although alot of Speedtouch USB Modems have been reported to not work on here, whereas the ones which DO work, probably won’t have even posted on here for help.

    I have a USB Modem and it works fine. All you need to do it share the USB Modem internet with the Wifi Wireless. This should solve the problem. Just keep fiddling around (remembering everything you have changed so you go back to the old settings if it goes baad).

    PS. The Speedtouch USB Modem works fine. You just gotta fiddle around.

    Dom

  239. 239 Poepketel

    The problem though is that i did all that, i shared it and all that. It still would not work. I found the main problem to be that the MAX software would only detect non-dialup connections as possible connections and not the broadband “dial-up” that bulldog is. I spent hours and hours trying to figure it out. My router worked in 10min. How did you specify your USB modem as the device to connect to for the internet?

  240. 240 dominic

    In the internet connections, is there the wireless connection for the Wifi MAX?

    If there is, you should share the USB Modem with the Wireless connection…

    USB MODEM CONNECTION >
    PROPERTIES >
    ADVANCED >
    ALLOW OTHER USERS TO CONNECT TO…… >
    HOME NETWORKING CONNECTION: WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION

    Hope this helps the problem…

  251. 251 jake

    wifi max huh piece of crap i was told too repair it in properties but my pc fails to every time

  252. 252 Marquis

    Wifi max is a waste of money. mine always say conection with the server failed. dns error

  253. 253 jebralco

    Maybe you can help me because i’m going crazy. My son bought the wifi max (he and my daughter have psp’s). He installed this on my pc using the Apache server, security enabled so half the block can’t jump on my signal (what he said). He also enabled my other computer to share the connection with mine. So now there are two psp’s and a second pc using my connection with my 1st computer which is a direct connect. Everything was working beautifully until my 4 yr old unplugged EVERYTHING! I lost all connection except for my direct connect on the orginal computer. So I have no idea how he did all this! He’s in Iraq and I can’t contact him to ask how to fix this mess.

    I managed to get mine on a shared connection with local area connection but when I tried to connect with my DS evreything was working fine until it came up with the message that it had managed to connect to the adapter but couldn’t connect to the server.

    So I restarted the computer and now it is saying that it is “not connected”. Does this just mean that its not plugged in? (which is damn well is) or my shared connection is screwed?

  264. 264 Kazama boy

    Do you have to be on the internet to use the WiFi max or can u use it just by hooking it up to an internet enabled PC?

  265. 265 Ryd1zzel

    can u use the wifi max with AOL dial-up?

  267. 267 shannon

    do u have to have a router, or broadband in order to have psp wifi max?

  268. 268 Joe

    Hey,
    Alright I bought this thing yesterday and installed it and everything and I got it up and running fine. I was playing socom for about five minutes then the connection dropped. And ever since that I cant get to work anymore!!!! When I plug it in it connects at the highest speed but doesn’t send out a signal, so when I try to scan for it on my psp it cant find it!! I have tried everything!! What do I do? Anybody know?

  269. 269 sammy

    hey umm i dont know if anyone can help me here, i have a comcast high speed and when i scan for connection with my psp, it doesnt get anything and it says no connection wanna try again,. i just need away to get it to connect to the internet using my connection , ya and by the way my version is 2.71

  270. 270 shane

    hey i got my wifi max in the mail a few days ago and in less than 30 minutes i was playing socom through dial up. i installed it and it wouldn’t read my dial connection as an option to bridge the wifi max to so i uninstalled the max then re-installed it while connected to the Internet through my dial up modem. it read it so i then shared it to the wifi max connection in connection setting and that was all i had to do. if you think i can help post a message and if i read it I’ll try to help you.

  271. 271 jack

    Right hello. I am no expert at this thing and i don’t no how many people still read these posts but wifi max is a b**ch to set up and AOL doesn’t help either. but thanks to ED and other people on this site i finally managed to get it up and running.PROPERLY. Yes, it doesn’t cut off or anything.

    first, set it all up the drivers and everything. then right click on the ZDWlan icon on the system tray and open utility window. Then click on more settings and at the bottom where it says MAC address filter click settings. Then at the drop down menu click accept and then at the bottom click change. now enter the MAC address of the PSP (which you can find in the system settings menu) In the first box and click apply. Then download AnologXproxy from the link in ED’s Post (Cheers lad) then connect to the internet, Start up anologXproxy (green icon in the system tray) and fingers crossed it should work.It worked for me. All this connection bridging I don’t think has much effect as i have not had to do it.

    Incredibly frustrating product but when it’s up and running all the mistakes and trouble you’ve been having you can actually laugh at.

    hope it helps

    jack

  273. 273 pro

    does this let you go online with people everywhere or only people with a psp near you and also it says manage music does that mean you can convert movie files to mp4 as well.

  274. 274 shane

    ya, you can go online just like you would through any wireless access point. and yes it has a converter to mp4.

  275. 275 jose

  283. 283 Half Life fan

    This wifi max is a piece of s***, it used to work but now it says it’s not even connected and when it is it says aquiring network address. It doesn’t even aquire that. Who ever created this I hope they die.

    I’m leaning towards getting a proper wireless router like netgear, i think its called Netgear DG834G for £59.99 (60 quid) at Currys.Digital.

    Theres no point bovering with wifi maximum frustration.

  286. 286 edward

    I bought this but cannot get it to work with my PSP. The PSP picks up the WiFi Dongle but when it attempts to get the IP Address of it, the operation times out. I have tried everything I can think of and phones the unhelpful technical support. Can anyone help?

  287. 287 Have a heart, play Mario Kart!

    Thanks a lot to everyone who wrote on this thread. i woz gonna buy the wifi max but now you lot have made me reconsider. Thanks a lot, you saved me lots of money and that post about usin the cable to hang yourself woz funny.
    And if anyone readin this wants to buy the wifi max, DONT!
    B.S.

  288. 288 Dicer999

    The only reason that your WiFi max isnt working for yu guys is because you dont read. There had been many good, step by step instructions any you guys just dont listen.

  289. 289 Half Life fan

    No, it’s simply because the WiFi Max is a piece of s***. It doesn’t work full stop

  290. 290 Gamesdmc3

    if your ip address is timed out just set it yourself

  291. 291 Gamesdmc3

    most likely if your having trouble with it it is because of ur firewall

  292. 292 Gamesdmc3

    and remember u half to bridge the wifimax to or enternet connection or it wont work even if it picks it up 100%

  293. 293 Half Life fan

    It always says limited or no connectivity and it stops my main internet connection from working temporarily until i either disable it or until i just take it out.

  294. 294 Gamesdmc3

    how many enternet connections do u have,cause i have 2 and when one of my connections are not strong enough i just bridge it to my strong connection and enable the sharing wich u half to enable for it to work

  295. 295 Gamesdmc3

    tomorrow i will be on at 8am in the morning and i will aswer all of yall questions, dont get upset it took me two days to figure out to get it to work

  296. 296 Gamesdmc3

    i really need help i am running windows ME and i can’t get this thing working i would jus read but eveyone has XP. can someone plz give me a step by step solution??

  299. 299 Half Life fan

    Gamesdmc3 I only have one ethernet port but I use that for my PS2. I do have internet sharing on as well, but when I turn on internet sharing for the WiFi Max’s wireless local area connection. It turns off my main internet connection (local area connection 1) and then it just loses connection to the internet all together :(

  300. 300 Cyber wolf

    i hav the same problem as bloodhound, i can play online on my ds and psp fine and the connection works. but after about an hour of playing (it varies alot) it crashes my comp and feezes so i hav to reboot. I t only does this when its actully plugged in and running tho so i hav no idea what the problem is.
    if anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly apreciated.

  301. 301 DeathwishTom

    Some people have done this, so far I’ve corrected 24 people in their mistakes. This is for when you have a connectio so everything works but it just says connection failed. When you go into the properties of your network connection and share connection with other users, make sure you type your wireless adapter name into the field just below. I know it causes a lot of grief, but just hang in there and keep looking for PSP help topics for your paricular router or USB wireless adapter. The browser is flawed, I admit, but ownin’ noobs online with PSP is freakin’ SWEET!!! SONY rules…(Shame about PS3 March 2007 delay though!)..

  302. 302 capboy

    i lost my cd what should i do

  303. 303 Gamesdmc3

    DeathWish Tom the ps3 is not coming out march 2007 it is coming out this year on november 17

  304. 304 Gamesdmc3

    half life fan make sure that u enable sharing for your enternet connection and not the wifi max wireless connection.when u plug in the wifi max u will see a new connection appear at the bottom right hand corner of your pc were ur time is located,and u should see a colerful icon called ZD, if u do not see it click on the the circle with this
