    you usually access a router vie web browser, no special softwares required. i know my ps3 has issues when i set my router to use WEP-2 or is it WPA-2? i forget which one, but it worked after i changed it to plain old WEP.

    I never understood how navigating pages of Xbox ads to get to your personal media was easier to navigate than simple horizontal icons indicating simply what was within. I still have trouble finding my game library sometimes behind ads and pages of worthless info.

    Anyway, glad you got it going, Koji. No issues here, on either system to be honest, but even when I moved into my new place, I "borrowed" internet from a friend with the PS3 and it was easy as pie to swap over when I got installed.

    Can't wait to play Uncharted tonight. Left the download running this morning.

    I just use the mini blade menu you get if you press the guide button, I don't use the dashboard enougth to remember where everything is in the wacky NXE layout.
