Default Wireless Internet Connections and the Toshiba A2

All,

I just picked up my Toshiba A2 yesterday (99 bucks is too good to pass up) and I want to connect it to the net to take advantage of all the web extras and IME stuff. Is it possible to connect the A2 to the net wirelessly? I have couple of wireless USB adapters already in the house and I was wondering if I could use those?

Don't think there is any way to use the USB adapter, but you can get the NetGear access point with a single ethernet port (which is what I use). That works.

I have the NetGear WAP54G Wireless-G Access Point. It is basically a wireless adapter with an Ethernet Port - You plug whatever device into it via an Ethernet cable and it communicates with the wireless router over the air - if that is what your wireless adapter does, then you should be all set.

I actually use it for the 360. I preferred it to the 360 adapter because you can attach a multi-port switch to it and connect more than one device, if necessary.

Since I have Mac computers here at home I just bought a Airport Express and about 6 feet of ultra thin cat5. Set the Express up as a WDS, then set up the A3 (in my case) turning on DNS. Was set up in about 5 min.
