    I basicly would like to know how to make the WGA54G a WAP to connect things like PSP , possibly NDS to it

    I basicly would have it connected to my PC directly , but I don't know how to configure it to be a WAP , tried both CAT5 and crossover cables , and neither PSP or DS could detect any WAP

    also , what linksys routers/WAP's/adapters work for NDS? (cuz DS is picky , and PSP I honestly could care less about , but know it would work with anything) even if it's AOSS (hopefully not)

    The short form is, you can't.
    The Game Adapter is a media converter, not a NIC. Even if it was a NIC, it still wouldn't just become an access point, you may be able to get it to connect in AD-Hoc mode, but thats iffy at best... There is some software (I believe it's only for linux) that would allow a PC to function as an AP but you need an actual wireless network card for that not just a media converter.

    You should be ok with a WRT54G or the travel router, the NDS should connect fine to either of those, as well as the PSP.
