 +__**White Wifi Max guide for Windows Vista.**__
 +
 +I assume you have the following setup:
 +
 +**1.PC with Windows Vista 32 / Windows Vista 64
 +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.**
 +
 +1.Download the latest Ralink Driver from http://driverscollection.com/?file_cid=41009994333f43c12a5389a37d6 .
 +Enter the code to get them.
 +
 +Once you finished downloading - DO NOT RUN THE DRIVER YET.
 +Instead navigate to the downloaded file and right click on it - choose "properties" and then "compatibility".
 +
 +Check the box for the compatibility mode "Windows XP (Service Pack2) and click apply:
 +
 +{{:bild1key.gif|}}
 +
 +Plug in the Wifi Max and ignore any driver installation requests.
 +
 +Run the installer and install the driver.
 +As the configuration utility we will choose "Microsoft Zero Configuration Tool" - after that just click next until the installation is done.
 +
 +{{:bild2q.gif|}}
 +
 +There might be some warnings regarding the drive - continue anyway.
 +
 +2.------------------------
 +Now open the device manager (quick way: Start and type in devmgmt.msc).
 +The "Rt73 Usb Wireless LAN Card" should show up in the network adaptors section.
 +
 +{{:bild3k.gif|}}
 +
 +Right click on it and choose "Properties" and then "driver" - the date should be 21.20.2008 or newer.
 +If thats the case skip the next step and continue with the configuration (Step 3).
 +
 +If that is _not_ the case windows installed its own drivers, and we have to choose the driver manually.
 +To do this, change to the driver tab and choose "update driver"
 +
 +{{:bild4ftr.gif|}}
 +
 +Then choose the lower option:
 +
 +{{:bild5.gif|}}
 +
 +In the next window choose the lower option again:
 +
 +{{:bild6.gif|}}
 +
 +On the next Window choose "Have disk" and navigate to the driver folder.
 +It should be "c:\ProgramData\Ralink Driver\RT7x Wireless LAN Card\Driver\"
 +Double click the RT73.inf file and click ok.
 +
 +You should now see a window that looks like this:
 +
 +{{:bild7b.gif|}}
 +
 +Click on next and then on close.
 +You will be back on the properties Window of the card - close and reopen it.
 +
 +3.------------------------
 +Choose the "advanced" tab.
 +In the list you will have to change the following value:
 +
 +{{:bild8.gif|}}
 +
 +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.
 +Click ok and close the window and the device manager.
 +
 +4.------------------------OPTIONAL
 +Open up the network connections window (Quick Way: start and type in control netconnections )
 +
 +Right click on the Wireless connection and choose "properties".
 +Double Click on "Internetprotocoll Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
 +
 +Set the values shown in this screen shot:
 +
 +{{:bild9.gif|}}
 +
 +Click on ok and close the window.
 +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.
 +
 +5.------------------------
 +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, click on "start" -> "connect to".
 +Another way to establish the connection is clicking on the "2PCs with the globe" icon in the bottom right corner of your task bar and choose "connect to a network".
 +
 +In the window choose the PSP_XXXX Network and click connect.
 +
 +{{:bild10.gif|}}
 +
 +Ignore any warnings regarding the security.
 +Now you are connected with your PSP and are just moments away from playing on xlink kai.
 +
 +6.------------------------
 +Open xlink kai.
 +
 +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:
 +
 +{{:qkvr0-38b23ccd95df3b5661fd673810ec5c96.jpg|}}
 +
 +
 +The following option is 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:
 +
 +{{:qkeo0-38b23ccd95df3b5661fd673810ec5c96.jpg|}}
 +
 +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.
 +
 +Also 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.
