    ping time on the wireless stuff is not real good for gaming (well PC gaming anyways, I dont know how the ps2 online stuff will work yet). Just a thought though if you have problems/frag time that might be the issue. J

    Ive been running it for over 2 months now and it has worked flawless, Its definetaly a plus if your like me and didnt feel like running a Cat 5 cable back to my room. I havent had any problems with ping or anything, usually it works just as fast as when i plug it directly into the router. If anybody wants the equipment i used go ahead and PM me ill tell ya everything ya need to get it running.

    Thats cool, I know there where some issues on ping time for PC games like 1st person shooters. I really dont know how the PS2 is setup for online use yet, haven't got into it much.
    When I go wireless I'm thinking about using the d-link 5ghz stuff. The price will come down after x-mas, so I'll see how that goes.

    You know whats wierd is that my network works perfect with my PS2, but it does all sorts of wierd things with this stupid laptop im on now, all I do is move the ethernet connection from the PS2 to my laptop. I have a feeling its Windows ME /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.

    Thanks, Im lucky to have gotten to see my blazer while it was in the body shop. Its pretty cool cause my dad is the owner of the dealership I get all my body work done at, plus I get almost all of my parts for dealer cost.

    That would be nice.
    A friend of a friend took my truck in one night striped it down and primed it, next night sanded and painted, thrid wetsand and clear coated it. It came out pretty well for a color change @ 700$'s. I had to paint all the jams and inside the tailgate though. Wasn't too hard since its the 2000 GM med metallic grey.
