    Just bought a wireless USB dongle and plugged it into my playstation.

    Did a search online and couldn't figure out how to make it work with my wireless connection, much less configure the ps2 to recognize the dongle.

    Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    I don't believe that you can use the USB ports for random devices like that. I think they only work for certain PS2-enabled headsets, keyboards, special controllers (wheels, joysticks, etc.).

    I think you're pretty much limited to the Sony broadband adapter for networking.

    Not necessarily (spelling, I've been drinking). When I had a PS2, I used the Xbox Live adapter for it, and it worked perfect, lol. Played Socom II with it...But as far as USB, I don't think that the PS2 recognizes just ANY USB adapter.

    It wont recognize your wifi usb... You have to buy the sony WiFi adapter....

    But ANY keyboard will work. I used my microsoft Natural Keyboard.

    What is the sony wifi adapter?

    I got the slimline ps2 and there is a ethernet connection in the back already...

    I just decided to put the wireless usb dongle on my desktop computer and run a cord from the router to the ps2 and hid it under the carpet.
