White Wifi Max guide for Windows Xp.

Note: Even though the packing shows a black stick, there is a white one in it.

I assume you have the following setup:

1.PC with Windows XP (32bit) 2.Already installed the latest Version of xlink kai (in my case 7.4.18), and have an account. 3.Have administrator rights on the PC. 4.Bought a Datel Wifi Max (white) with the model WL-685R(written on the back). This model has the RT73 chip set.

2.———————— Go to: Start → Control panel → network connections. Right click on the Wireless Network Connection that has the RT73 USB Wireless LAN card description and choose „Properties“ It should look like this:

Here you choose „configure“ and then „advanced“. In the list you will have to change the following value:

PSP Xlink mode → choose „Enable“ (This will enable the card to work with xlink) Confirm with „OK“ Note: I also changed the Network type to ad-hoc, but i don't know if that is necessary.

3.———————— Again: Right click on the Wireless Network Connection that has the RT73 USB Wireless LAN card description and choose „Properties“.

This time scroll down in the middle list and double click on “Internet protocol TCP/IP”. Choose to use a static IP Address and type in the values seen on this picture:

Click OK and you are done with configuring the card. Just a quick info why i did this: If you set a static IP Address the connection between the PSP and the card will establish a lot quicker, as you will not have to wait for a address to be assigned.

4.—–OPTIONAL———– Note: This section can be skipped - it is only important if you have games that change the ssid. I did not know that as i originally wrote this guide.

Go to Start → All programs → Xlink Kai → Configure Kai. Please make sure you set the marked options as shown in this picture:

Click on save once you are done.

5.———————— Right click on the Kai tray icon and choose close. Boot up your PSP Game and go into the multiplayer lobby. In my case i played Monster hunter freedom unite – so its the online gathering hall. If the game you play has more than one lobby, choose always the first one as you will only see people online that are in the same lobby.

Once you are inside the lobby and your psp wifi light is flashing, double click on the Ralink tray icon.

Click on „Network“ and then choose scan – you will see a list looking like this:

Here choose the network with PSP_XXXX in the name and click connect. Now you are connected with your PSP and are just moments away from playing on xlink kai.

6.———————— Open xlink kai

Note: If you choose the “follow psp ssid id” in the xlink configuration – it will disconnect your wireless connection with the psp – don't worry that is perfectly fine if that option is checked. Just reconnect to the PSP_XXXX network in the Ralink software. Kai will show a small pop up in the lower right corner that it changes the ssid to PSP_XXXX.

What you will see now depends on the client you use, if you use the „Standard-GUI“ do the following, if you use the web interface – see below:

Standard GUI Login into kai and click on the globe – you can choose your games from there but don't do that yet – instead click on the magnifying glass. This will open up the diagnostics mode:

The following options are important:

Network reachable: Yes (can take some time!) – if that is not the case, you will have to forward the port. See the forum for a how to.

Once you verified the options click on the „Folder“ Here it should list a PSP - if it says „Sony PSP,configured successfully“ you are fine. If not, check that you did everything as posted in the guide – if you did please search the forums.

Web interface Login into kai and click on „Metric“ This will open up the diagnostics:

The following options are important:

Network reachable: Yes (can take some time!) – if that is not the case, you will have to forward the port. See the forum for a how to.

It should list your PSP here -If not, check that you did everything as posted in the guide – if you did please search the forums.

7.———————— You are ready to go – just choose the game you want to play and open up a lobby or use a existing one. You will see players joining and can start playing.
