Question by roy_parcells: What do I need to go wireless? (PC, Laptop, PS2)?
I have an old desktop PC and an old laptop (both several years). Neither have any wireless components. The desktop PC has a cable modem (not wireless).

If I:
1) Buy a Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router or the Buffalo Wireless MIMO Performance router and connect it to my cable modem
2) Plug my desktop PC into the router
3) Buy the Buffalo Wireless Ethernet Coverter (WLITX4G54HP) for my PS2 and Laptop

Will I be able to (without purchasing ANY other components) have my desktop online and use the converter to get both my PS2 and laptop (doesn’t have to be simultaneously) online in another room?

I think I read that these gaming adaptors are basically just bridges/converters that give gamers a “warm fuzzy”.

Best answer:

Answer by actionlamb
Apart from the wireless router which you will plug the cable modem into. your laptop needs a wireless pcmcia card ( preferably linksys) and then you will be able to connect to the router.

    Excellent, highly recommended., September 21, 2011

    Let me first start by saying that I went on a month long quest for a Network Attached Storage device. Reading reviews (which, unfortunately, are all over the place) and finally settling on the Seagate Home cloud. End result, it was slower than I could ever imagine. It was going to take 5 days to copy from USB to the drive. Luckily, I bought it at Costco so the return was a non issue.

    Next, I tried out the iOmega 2TB home cloud thingy. This case is beautiful, copied faaaasssttt, and had the internal Bittorrent downloads (but the interface is crap compared to the Buffalo). I was so happy. HOWEVER…it does not function with netbooks running Win 7 Starter. Not at all good be cause this is over 66% of our laptops. I diagnosed this after weeks of working with the iOmega service people (who are fantastic, by the way, though they couldn’t figure this one out).

    Finally, I found the Buffalo LinkStation 2TB. Right out of the box, it worked. This was a shock to me, previous experience lowered my expectations. But I mean, it really worked! The Bittorrent kicks ass, it has the standard Utorrent interface right there on the NAS. You start the download and it runs on the NAS. You login and check the progress of the download. Exactly what you would want (I’m contrasting this with iOmega, where you just drop the torrent into a folder and eventually the downloaded file pops up in a folder with no notice or way to track progress).

    The streaming is great, we’ve streamed two HD programs on the Xbox360 and my netbook at the same time with no hitch, stutter or lag. I’ve transferred files, downloaded torrents, streamed audio while streaming HD video to the 360.

    The iTunes server is flawless. It just appears in your iTunes and you start streaming away.

    Internet access I haven’t really tried, I know you can connect with Android (I have the app), iPhone etc.

    I really liked the iOmega. The case is beautiful, the software is slightly more intuitive, but the Torrent interface is garbage compared with the Buffalo.

    The Buffalo is exactly what you are looking for. It ended my search.

    Easy setup – Works Great, October 31, 2010
    Steve Hebert

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    First I am no techie, I really don’t know much about NAS (Network Attached Storage) I just needed to have certain files where all computers could have access to them at all times, regardless if all other computers were turned off.

    My setup
    2 XP Desktops (Wired)
    1 Win 7 32 Laptop (Wireless)
    1 Vista Laptop (Wireless)
    1 Win 7 64 Desktop (Wired)
    1 Linksys Gigabit Wireless Router
    1 NetGear switch
    1 Arkview USB Server
    cable internet

    The set up was very simply. It now shows up as drive L on all my computers.
    This it tied into the Linksys Router along with 2 Desktops, the Cable modem and the Netgear Switch
    a third Desktop and the Arkview Server are tied into the Netgear switch. (Initially I was concerned that the computer on the Netgear would not have access – but it did without a hitch)

    I am able to have multiply computers working off the same file on the Linkstation at the same time.

    The access time is really pretty good.
    Prior to this I had the files stored on Computer A and when computer B went to access them there was a very noticeable delay, the delay now with the Linkstation is barely noticeable (probably about 1/10th of what it was)

    There is no delay at all when you go to browse the Linkstation, Acts just like a second hard drive on the computer.

    One note: The USB port will work as a print server – but does not handle the multifunction aspects of a multifunction printer.
    (No surprise – the specs on the linkstation clearly spell that out – but it would have been nice if it did)

    There are an awful lot of other features with this thing that I have yet to explore. For now, for me it does exactly what I bought it for and does it very well
    When I get a chance to try out some of the other fatures I will update this review.

    Close but No Cigar, April 19, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I had high hopes for this unit. The specs look great, the capacity is huge, and it comes with NovaBackup and access online through a buffalo website and phone app.
    Now, after ordering, exchanging, and returning 2 of these units, I am wiser and able to, I hope, save another unsuspecting customer from the aggravation and subsequent disillusionment that this product caused me.
    Specs and software sound good until it arrives, you plug it in, and you install the software. The first thing you notice is the slow firmware interface. For a product that boasts a 1.6Ghz internal processor, a lag of plus or minus 5 seconds is long and feels longer every time you access it. Want to log in to the firmware? That’s an extra 10 to 15 seconds. Flipping through the various pages of firmware settings? 5 seconds of wait coming your way. I didn’t actually measure it but is a long enough delay that the programmers added a loading animation to make sure you didn’t think it a bug. Every page people. After comparing the performance to my netgear router, it came away looking pretty pathetic, and my router isn’t packing the kind of hardware found in this NAS.
    Then there’s the update issues. My first unit prompted me to update virtually the instant I plugged it in. That’s how it should be you say; At least until you get the error message about the DTCP-IP protocol not being able to update. Yeah, the firmware update is broken into 2 distinct parts. For those not familiar with it, the DTCP-IP protocol is a function connected to DLNA, the standard file sharing software, that allows the unit to work with copyrighted media. Apparently, one of the ‘perks’ that the company fails to mention in it’s marketing material is a bug in the update algorithm for DTCP-IP that prevents it from updating. I thought it might be teething troubles, so I checked the buffalo forums. They had questions and complaints about this particular issue going back to January of this year. When I contacted tech support and asked about it, I was told this was a known issue and that a fix was on it’s way. When, I asked? No idea, they said. Lovely.
    I decided that I would deal with it as DLNA still worked with non-copyright stuff and the unit was still pretty speedy on storage and retrieval.
    Then I installed the NovaBackup software. There’s an upgrade, I was told. Click here! So I clicked. A page on the NovaBackup site came up. Special Deal! Buffalo customers can update free! ($20 handling charge). Excuse me? So now let me get this straight… I can upgrade the pack-in software, trumpeted on all the marketing material as free, with a $260 product, only to find that the free upgrade has a $20 handling charge for the incredibly laborious backend action associated with me clicking on the download button?! The website helpfully stated that those with a license key could click on the download button for really for real free. So I looked for the key on the installed app. What a surprise that the key info panel was blank. So, I emailed Buffalo, expressing my distaste for this rather obvious attempt to bilk me of an extra $20. You’re welcome to use the version included with the unit, was the terse reply. Gee, thanks. Anyone out there old enough to remember shareware? I’m here to tell you, it ain’t dead; It shacked up with Buffalo, Inc.
    Then there was the webaccess feature. I have an android phone. They have an android app named WebAccess. Sweet I thought. Access through phone. What could go wrong? Enabled it through the unit firmware. Downloaded app. Started app with big grin on my face. App states it would love to work; all it needs is for me to turn off SSL because the app doesn’t support it. Face loses grin. Emailed tech support to inquire just what kind of insane company produces an android app intended to stream an individual’s personal data to one of the most insecure technological inventions yet devised by man, a smartphone, that does not allow encryption of said data BY DESIGN.
    Fine, I thought, me being of the eternally generous (some would say gullible) disposition. I still have a decent, if slightly hobbled, NAS solution. Until a week later, when the unit started clicking loudly every 5 minutes. Now I’m a semi-pro computer tech and I know that sound. It said ‘bad hard drive controller’ very loudly whilst running across my desk stark naked with a sign that screamed ‘dead duck’ in big, ugly letters. So I emailed tech support. They told me to RMA it.
    Unit number 2 arrived a week later. Plugged it in and it said nothing about an update for firmware, despite the very obvious fact that the version was obsolete. Nothing a could do would get this thing to even acknowledge it needed to update.
    It was a moot point as it happened, since this unit sounded like a box of crickets the instant I turned it on. Cue desk streaker with annoying voice and ugly placard. RMA numero dos. This time I got my money back.
    Do yourself a favor…
