 +This guide is made in Window 7 but it will work in XP and Vista.
 +What you need:
 +Computer (With a Window OS)
 +GW-USMini2N
 +PSP
 +Xlink Kai (Download here: http://www.teamxlink.co.uk )
 +
 +1.) Download the driver or use the driver from the CD that came along with the GW-USMini2N. Make sure you download the right driver. If you have Vista/Win7, get the Vista driver. If not, get the normal Windows driver. You can download the driver at: http://www.planex.net/download/wireless/gw-usmini2n.htm
 +

 +
 +2.) Install the driver. Pretty straight forward. Install the driver only with the WLan.
 +
 +3.) Now plug in the GW-USMini2N and Window should automatically install it.
 +
 +4.) Now to make sure the driver that we just installed is applied to the GW-USMini2N. There are two ways of finding it:
 +
 +a. Go to control panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings
 +
 +b. Go to device manager
 +
 +5.)Then find the GW-USMini2N. It should be named "150N Wireless LAN USB Adapter". Which means that Window installed the default driver and not the one we want. We have to change that.

 +
 +Right click it > Properties
 +
 +{{:3.png|}}
 +
 +Go to configure
 +
 +{{:4.png|}}
 +
 +The on the top, go to driver > update driver
 +
 +{{:5.png|}}
 +
 +After that click "Browse my computer for driver software"
 +
 +{{:6.png|}}
 +
 +Then click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
 +
 +{{:7.png|}}
 +
 +And pick the GW-USMini2N and click Next.
 +
 +{{:8.png|}}
 +
 +6. Ok so now Windows will see the USB as GW-USMini2N instead of 150N Wireless LAN USB Adapter. If it doesn't, then you did something wrong. The next step is to get it ready for Xlink Kai.
 +
 +Go back to the properties of GW-USMini2N and click configure again. This time on the tab click on Advance. You will get a huge list and enable "PSP Xlink Mode".
 +
 +{{:9.png|}}
 +
 +7. In the same screen, two up from PSP Xlink Mode is Network Type. Set the Value of that to 802.11 Ad Hoc.
 +
 +{{:10.png|}}
 +
 +8. Time to launch Xlink Kai now. Go to configuration on Xlink Kai and it should look like this:
 +
 +{{:11.png|}}
 +
 +Make sure the Network Adapter is GW-USMini2N and set the Deep Port to 0. Everything should look like the image except for the username of course.
 +
 +9. Now go to your PSP and enter an ad-hoc room. On the bottom right of your desktop, there is a internet button. Click on it and find your PSP and connect to it.
 +
 +{{:12.png|}}
 +
 +10. Make sure your Network Reachable is Yes and that Xlink Kai sees your PSP.

 +
 +11. Voila! And you're ready to play.
 +
 +__**FAQs**__
 +
 +**What operating system does this guide apply to?**
 +
 +-This guide will work for Window XP, Vista and 7. It will work for both 32 and 64 bit Window.
 +
 +**I have another Planex stick such as the GW-US64Mini2G. Does it work with this guide?**
 +
 +-No. This guide is solely for GW-USMini2N. Use another guide because I cannot help you if you have a different adapter.
 +
 +**How do I play Monster Hunter and connect to other people?**
 +
 +-Here is the step:
 +1.Enter a Xlink Kai arena you would like to play with
 +2.Enter the online gathering hall (Gathering Hall 1 or Auto)
 +3.Start step 9 so that you can connect your psp to your computer
 +4.Then you should be able to see people in the guild hall and their names (grey names mean they are in quest so you cannot see their body)
 +5.Pick up a posted quest
 +6.Go to door and ready for departure
 +
 +**My Xlink Kai works and I have played before with people but I can't see anyone now. What is wrong?**
 +
 +-This happens occasionally while playing from time to time. If you are having trouble seeing people or having trouble connecting to a certain person, they to "rekai" (aka restart Xlink Kai/replug in your adapter)
 +
 +**I am having trouble connecting my PSP to my computer. I can't find the PSP signal.**
 +
 +-The PSP signal will only appear when you enter an ad-hoc room. When you leave the ad-hoc room, the PSP will disconnect itself and the signal will be gone.
 +
 +**I have followed this guide religiously and it still doesn't work.**
 +
 +-There could be a number of problems. These are the ones I have encountered so far:
 +1. In step 8, make sure everything you have enabled PAT and make sure everything else it the same.
 +2. In step 10, the first picture shows the Diagnostics Mode in Xlink Kai. Make sure that the Network Card reads GW-USmini2N. If not, then Xlink Kai is using the wrong Network adapter.
 +
 +**When I first plugged in my GW-USMini2N, it did not automatically installed it as "150N Wireless LAN USB Adapter". Is that alright?**
 +
 +-Yes that is perfectly fine. Each computer may install it differently but that doesn't matter. As long as you change the driver later to GW-USMini2N then it is fine.
 +
 +**Do I need to install the utility software that comes with the driver?**
 +
 +-As I have stated in the guide, you do not need to install the utility software.
 +
 +**I have this sort of router. Will it work?**
 +
 +-Your router has nothing to do with this. Heck you don't even need a router. The way this work is your PSP connecting to the GW-USMini2N and that alone.
 +
 +**Does it matter if my laptop/computer is connected to the internet via Ethernet or wireless?**
 +
 +-No, it doesn't matter.
 +
 +**Where can I get the GW-USMini2N?**
 +
 +- http://www.amazon.com/IEEE802-11n-Wireless-Mini-USB-GW-USMini2N-designed/dp/B0015VOIC4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1243892525&sr=1-2
 +
 +**Thanks for the guide! It works/doesn't work.**
 +
 +-It it works, send me a PM saying it works so I know how many people its been working for. If you got it to work with some tweaking of the guide, send me that information to so I can update the guide in anyway I can. If it doesn't work for you after reading the FAQs, send me a PM and please be specific where it doesn't work.
