5.0 out of 5 stars Technical Help for those that need it... 20 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Lets start by saying this is an excellent piece of kit. I use mine with Tony Hawks 4 and to browse the Internet from my living room (more about that further down).
Here are some points for those with technical queries:
You will need one of the following:
_Option1) A PC with broadband Internet connection and a network card installed. Connect your PCs network card to the PS2 network adapter using a CROSS-OVER network cable. You will need to turn on Internet connection sharing in Windows (available in 98SE or later), or run some sort of proxy server software (for Linux etc).
_Option2) An ethernet cable/ADSL modem with an RJ45 socket built in (not USB). I have not tested this method.
_Option3) A router connected to the Internet. This is my prefered method as my three PCs and the PS2 can all connect at the same time. A 4 port router with a built in ADSL modem can be purchased for about £50 now.
I just hope more online games come out soon. There currently aren't many and they are still mostly above £25 each.

5.0 out of 5 stars Online Gaming on the PS2 - UNBELIEVEABLE 22 Feb 2006
By Taltos
For a long time I was hesitant about getting into on-line gaming - especially after all the reviews thrashing the games.
Finally a relation bought me the adapter as they know I had broadband.
Installation - easy - just follow the steps and warnings
Registration - moderate - found the controls a little awkward at first - had to get used to it.
Wait for Registration ID - longest ever.... 1 to 2 wks
Activation - small difficulties - it tried to reinstall when I went back in - but this may have been due to me choosing wrong option.
Do not think that once you plug this in you will be playing immediately - you have to wait for the activation number to arrive by post. But once it arrives - it is fantastic.
Gaming will never be the same again.
My first few games had me sitting in front of the TV giggling like a madman while I tried to kill as many others as possible.
Would definitely recommend this to all gamers; ignore the bad press - there are some great games out there.
Deathmatch mode has been my favourite on Call of Duty.
But I am now getting into Capture the Flag - takes a little getting used to working with other gamers but very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Networked PS2 gameplay - awesome 11 Jun 2003
Very good product, just plug it in and watch it go. The response times are excellent and it really makes it true games console. What could be better than playing against a friend who can't see your screen and what you're up to. Much better than two-player on the same TV.
Plugged it into my ADSL router and it picked up IP address and connected immediately. Only thing I needed to do was setup incoming rules for the other console at each end and away it went. Thoroughly recommendeded addition to an already well-spec'd console.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Piece of kit at a low price 31 Oct 2004
If you have an old type of PS2 this Network Adaptor is essential. It allows you to play your PS2 online and you can play certain games against anyone if the world.
For the money you get the adaptor, a disc which when you put it into your PS2 takes you step by step through the process. Be warned though DO NOT fit the adaptor without recording your serial number and model number off the back of your PS2 as the adaptor hides these and you need them to get up and going at Central Station.
If you have AOL you will need a Crossover cable which are cheap all considering and of course you will need a Broadband Connection.
If you are having any trouble (it took me 4 hours of hard work and messing about to get mine online) then go to the PS2 Official website and join the forums as there is an answer for every problem you may encounter.
Happy gaming!

5.0 out of 5 stars PS2 Network Adaptor 20 Feb 2004
This is so good (although I do believe we have been conned a bit, this should have been included within the PS2 system.). I would like to comment on the post by “discoenergy” (if this is not posted on the site I would like a copy to be sent to discoenergy if possible (this may help him a bit). I am pleased to inform you that the PS2 network adapter does accept wireless connections (I would also suggest to never ever go to Dixons for advice).
Wireless connection is pretty easy really (although it does help to know a little about computers). It is not as easy as plug in the network adapter stick a few wires here and there and hey presto, oh know, for this job you need to be wired! (Pun intended!) Oh yeah for this you need equipment. I will explain how to connect your PS2 using a wireless router connection.
If you want to connect your PS2 and your computer to the Internet at the same time, or add your PS2 to your existing wireless home network - here's how to do it.
A wireless Router Connection is essentially the same as a standard, wired Router Connection, except without the clutter of cables everywhere. As with a Router Connection it allows you to share your Internet connection between your PC and your PlayStation 2, and allows you to play network games even when the computer is switched off (as the router effectively does the job of a computer for you).
