    title sez it all, i need a wireless adapter for my pc, then i thought "y not use my psp as one?" idk if its possible but it would kick ass if you could add a program to the psp that makes it act like an adapter through the USB port... well?

    p.s. unrelated q- is that an infared sensor next to the L button, & if so whats it used for?

    couldnt tell u about the 1st question, but yes that is an infrared thing.
    there are a few apps that use it as an infrared remote, so u can control things that sense infrared....tv's in classrooms.....
    I'm a fag.

    Your psp can receive WiFi, it cannot transmit WiFi.

    So no.

    They communicate but thats a lot different then transmitting a CONNECTABLE signal.

    If that were the case then multiplayer would be about as interesting as playing tennis with a sausage and a wall...

    Irshell can be used for adhoc wireless transfers, i.e. sending files between psps, but as yet there appears to be no home brew software for using the psp as a usb wireless access point, and I dont see there being any in the future.

    The only reason i ever want to use wireless is for my psp anyway...so using my psp as an access point would kinda defeat the object!

    What do you want to use such a function for then?

    Now thats a interesting idea. It is possible but will require a lot of work to be able to be done.

    Someone whould need to code a new homebrew that will have a new usb driver. The computer will also need a usb driver to read the information.

    I not too sure how wireless devices work but the end result will be like a usb wireless adapter.

    It will require a talented programmer to code up something like this. It is a great idea though. Might even be a completely new custom firmware to make it just do this function because while the firmware is loaded it might cause the signal sending to be slower which will cause more lag.
