Turns out you can absolutely use the PS2 to play online games!
You need to buy a NETWORK ADAPTER for it, which is in itself a 56K modem that includes a ETHERNET plug, so you can connect with just a regular phone line (slow), or connect your broadband modem/router by way of the ETHERNET cable (fast!)
You may need to buy a MEMORY CARD, and even a HARD DRIVE for some games, so its not free there.....

The information is a bit extensive for all the questions you may have, so I have included the following great links for you to peruse.

Cant get my ps2 to go online


To connect to the internetfor online gaming(you cannot surf the web with a PS2) you simply needto buy a "PS2 Network Adapter". It hooks to the back of your PS2 systembehind the removable plate, and you connect either a standard phoneline, or an Ethernet cable into it. A bonus is that there are nomonthly payments like the XBOX system, so all you have to do is buy theadapter and you are set.

Here are two links to what you need:

http://www.us.playstation.com/PS2/Accessories/SCPH-10281

Justbuy that adapter and follow the instructions that come with it. I willhave to warn you though, the PS2 online community is not linked to thePS3 online community, so there may not be many players to play againstsince most of them do not use the PS2 online anymore.
