GEEK HELP?

Filed at 3:36 pm under by dcobranchi

I need to hook a PS/2 to a network connection. Our home network comes in through a cable modem and then is WiFi’d to the rest of the house. The PS/2 network adapter has a 10/100 connector for input. There is a normal cable (television) connection on the TV that has the PS/2. Does anyone have any suggestions how I might be able to use the WiFi network to hook it up?

I’m not necessarily recommending the manufacturer since you should probably use something from the same company if you can. But this is the type of product you are looking for:

dlink....pid=21

I’ve had tremendously bad luck with multiple dlink purchass. One of the dlink support folks even told me, concerning one of their wireless network cards that I bought, “dude, ” he used “dude” a lot, “that card’s not really any good man; I’d really take it back if I was you.” [ok, it’s from memory, so the quote probably isn’t exact, but it’s awfully close] Your mileage my vary, but I caution my friends and family to avoid dlink.

Linksys and a few others make similar products. I own a linksys (and am not affiliated with them in any way) and have had good luck with it putting my ReplayTV on the wireless network in my home, once I realized that it was on the same wireless channel as my cordless phone and resolved the conflict.

FWIW, I have had no problems with the DLink wireless router currently running my network. It requires a reboot far less often than the Speedstream router that it replaced.

I meant above that you should use the same manufacturer as you already have in the hub. I’m currently using a dlink wireless hub and 2 dlink wireless cards (one under linux). Prior to that I had a dlink 10 Base T hub and 2 ISA cards and they all worked fine.
