    ok, got a router, was able to get rid of the sbc yahoo "helper" which freed up a shitload of resources..

    anyways I got my ps2 hooked up to the router as well.

    the computer runs fine connected to the internet, but now the ps2 wont connect to the internet so I can play socom 2...


    any ideas on how to fix it? i tried to mess with the ps2 network adaptor settings, but there was nothing I could find to set......

    it obtains an ip adress automatically and all that.....

    did you try to reset your modem after you plugged the ps2 into the router?

    everytime I put something onto my router I reset my modem. (cable)

    yup reset it.....

    still wont connect...

    wondering if the ps2 ethernet is compatible with a router....

    or do I need to configure port # 2 (port the ps2 is connected to)
    on the router to work with the playstation?

    what E said.

    you need to reconfigure the PS2

    you're router is proably set with an IP of 192.168.1.1

    so set the PS2 up with a static IP address of 192.168.1.5
    and you also want to open the port forward range 0-65535
    for the IP address that the PS2 is using.

    if you go dynamic , auto get IP addy, then you could still end up not being able to play games or have some strange problems.

    what router did you buy I can probably talk you thru the menu's
    if I know what one it is. hell you couldn't enable remote management and I could configure it for you.

    ok im back ... took a little longer than planned (had to drop a deuce)

    get to the screen where you can choose to "create/edit network configuration"
    - chose delete setting
    - pick your memory card


    now setting it back up
    - add setting
    - pick memory card
    - "SCE/Ethernet (network adaptor)
    - ID and Password "not Required"
    - set the IP "auto"
    - set the DNS "auto"
    - name "setting 1" (doesnt really matter what its called)
    - press "X" button to save
    - "OK"
    - "test connection? "YES"
    - "X" button

    test should be successful
    then your all set
    :)
