    Not really, WiFi Max is a shitty router. You should of gone with Linkysys or DLink.

    Anything is better than the Nintendo DS one. Honestly, you've paid around 40 dollars for the WiFi Max correct? For 10 dollars more, you could of had a more classy router with better range and 6 times the amount of speed.

    I'm not sure how that compares to USD, but pretty much you bought another shitty router....

    when you say the Wi fi max is not good, in what way, i dont need longer range and speed isnt really a problem, it loads pretty fast with my nintendo one.

    What else is wrong with it?

    Throwin it up for the big SD.
    i got the wifimax for my psp a while back...

    First off WifiMax best used if you have a pc that is fully wired and you have no wireless connection. If thats you then you should be fine. Otherwise...

    I had a wireless connection that i was trying to configure with the wifimax to run as a repeater (modem wired to wireless router to pc, wireless to laptop w wifi max). Wifimax ended up having to be given an IP by windows... windows starts assigning IPs using a .1 after your original IP and it cant be changed without manually changing the windows register. So yea my wireless router had the same IP that windows was trying to give my Wifimax, thats a no no, so I had to return it.

    Best advice (all wired or wired with wireless) if you are ok with manually setting up a network and programming IP addresses on your own, then go with the WifiMax. If IP addresses, setting up a pc to share a net connection, and maybe registry editing scare you then your best bet is to just get a basic wireless router, it'll save you bout 3 hours of time and an even longer headache. Wireless routers are easiest, most are just plug n paly if you dont want to set up any security.

    best of luck

    PS you get what you pay for when it comes to your network so if you want something easy and works good $50 (38 euro or whatev u use) shouldnt be what keeps you from it

    i have this for my psp/wii, and it works pretty good, but i got the one for the psp with the media manager and i had to delete the media manager sowtware because it wasnt sensing the dongle, i was going to reload it but before i did i noticed my copmuter sensed a hotspot even without the software so i just use itlike that, the directions are a little bit misleading and confusing.

    ps- when i did have the software on my comp i could connect but only sometimes and if i disconnected i had to turn my comp off then on to connect again

    well im picking up a Local WiFi access spot and my wii will not connect to it, people tell me that the wii will onlly look for a access point on channel 1, the the local is on channel 6, would getting the WiFi Max be a good idea?

    I had the wifi max (psp version, although it comes with both psp and ds setup) and after some trouble getting it to work, it worked pretty fine with my psp, ds, wii and even my wifi enabled phone. Although now I use a linksys router (needed more range).
