Quick recap of the online gaming basic steps

Here's a quick recap of the basic steps:
  1. Make sure that your PSP and your PSP's WLAN switch are both turned off.
  2. Turn on your PSP and change the network settings to Ad Hoc on Channel 1.
  3. Load the game you want to play, switch on the WLAN switch, and begin hosting a wireless game.
  4. On your computer, establish a computer-to-computer or ad hoc connection with the PSP.
  5. Launch Kai or Kaid. If you are on Mac OS X, launch Amaryllis after launching Kaid.
  6. Make sure you are successfully logged in to XLink Kai.
  7. Stop hosting the game on your PSP.
  8. Start hosting a new game or select a game in Kai/Amaryllis and try to join that game on your PSP.
If you are having trouble connecting, just go through these steps again, and refer to the online tutorials available via the XLink Kai forums ( If you switch games, you will have to close everything out and start over from the beginning, as each separate game broadcasts under a different ad hoc or computer-to-computer networked name. The people who are successfully logging in and playing are following the preceding steps to a tee, and starting over from the beginning anytime anything goes wrong.
