[quote=Del_Usion;2222437]You could use your laptop that way if you turned on Internet Connection Sharing on the wireless and used your wired connection to distribute that connection, but you can’t use the same network device to bot manage a connection and receive incoming connections from other devices. In this case, talking strictly about the Wii, you could either add a second wireless card in your PCMCIA slot (or expresscard if it’s a new laptop) to receive external connections, or get a wired network adapter for your Wii.
Using the laptop’s wireless as a gateway would work just fine sharing via ethernet to a 360 or PS3, since they both have wired network available.[/quote]
Interesting… so either way with PS3 or with a Wii I am going to have to buy a wireless card (would a USB wireless work the same?) So you’re saying it’s easier with PS3 since it comes compatible out of the box to receive the wireless signal from my laptop 2nd wireless card/usb, but not for the Wii? Well, that’s not bad news.
I received this email from customer support for WM-WiFi:
"Dear ----- --------------,
While it is true that WMWifiRouter is more device-friendly than WalkingHotSpot
(at least in our experience), WMWifiRouter does not work with the Wii and PS3
either. Some people claim they have it working, but we have not been able to
get it working ourselves.
These devices do not like connecting to ad-hoc networks. This is a software
issue on these devices. As far as we know there is no comparable software
product like ours that is able to connect with these devices.

Why… OH WHY… is it 2009, and we have gaming systems that can simulate motion and play Blu-Ray, but we don’t have an information sharing standard or universal compatibility!? UGH!!! Haha…
Let me know your thoughts on creating a total compatibility sharing for both PS3 and Wii, and what equipment I should purchase (what is best in your opinion botht for either a 2nd wireless card, or USB adapter) - THANKS! After I get the goods we’ll talk about the backend stuff to set it up
