I figured out that I do not need the Linksys WGA54G to connect my PS2 box to my wireless network. I ran this test with the WAP54G in client mode and found that it will forward a DCHP/IP address from my WRK54G to my laptop. It should do the same for the PS2 box. So, what's the difference between the WAP54G in client mode and the WGA54G? The modes of operation seem to be the same. Even WEP in 64bit encryption mode works. I received link disconnects when using 128bit encrytion mode. Still investigating this. I also noticed that if I ping the WAP54G, while the PC connected to it is accessing anything over the network, that the ping responses time out. Should this be expected?
