    How do I Network LAN through my PC?!
    Sorry if I'm just being an idiot but I don't get it D=
    But thanks for answering! You work at Sony?! Cool!

    Yeah well, I have the fat blue PS2 which DOESN'T have a port for Ethernet cables, but that works for the 360 :]
    Too bad they don't sell PS2 Network Adapters here... If they do then I didn't find any in any shop...

    Hello,
           Sorry for my earlier answer that i didn't guide you to how you can connect your PS2 with the internet. Please follow the instruction given below.

    There are 3 ways to connect your PlayStation 2:

    1. Direct Connection
    The fast and simple way to connect your PS2.

    Please note, you cannot connect your PC to the Internet when using a direct connection.

    2. Router Connection
    Play your PS2 online and connect your PC to the Internet at the same time. 

    3. Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
    Connect your PS2 to the Internet through your PC. ICS is ideal for USB and PCI modems and cheaper than buying a broadband router.

    Attention: Not all PS2s are ready to connect to the Internet. If you don't have the new slimline PS2, you will need to buy a PS2 Network Adapter. See your PS2’s documentation for more information. 

    Although PS2s have inbuilt USB ports, USB broadband modem and routers cannot be directly connected. See connection methods below for options.


    Direct Connection
    Connection check list:
    PlayStation 2
    Memory Card (8Mb)
    PS2 Network Adapter
    PS2 Network Access Disc
    Network Ethernet cable
    Broadband modem with an Ethernet connection

    Steps:
    Turn the PS2 and broadband modem off.
    Connect the network cable to the modem’s Ethernet port and the Ethernet port on your PS2 network adapter.
    Turn the broadband modem on. Now turn on the PS2.
    Load the Network Access Disc in the PS2. 
    Follow the on-screen setup instructions. Refer to the Network Access Disc manual for further support.

    Router Connection
    Connection checklist:
    PlayStation 2
    Memory Card (8Mb)
    PS2 Network Adapter
    PS2 Network Access Disc
    2 ‘straight-through’ Ethernet cables
    Broadband router with 2 or more Ethernet ports
    PC with a Network Interface Card (NIC)

    Steps:
    Turn the PS2 and broadband router off.
    Connect the first Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port on the broadband router and the Ethernet port on the PS2 Network Adapter.
    Connect the second Ethernet cable to another Ethernet port on the broadband router and the Ethernet port on your PC’s Network Interface Card (NIC).
    Turn on your router, then your PC.
    Check your PC can access the Internet - your broadband router may require a specific configuration to do this. Refer to the router’s instructions for specific support.
    Turn on your PS2 and insert the Network Access Disc. 
    Follow the on-screen setup instructions. Refer to the Network Access Disc manual for further support.


    Internet Connection Sharing
    Connection checklist:
    PlayStation 2
    Memory Card (8Mb)
    PS2 Network Adapter 
    PS2 Network Access Disc
    A ‘straight-through’ Ethernet cable
    A ‘cross-over’ Ethernet cable
    Broadband modem/router
    2 spare Ethernet ports on your PC (you may need to install additional Network Interface Card/s (NIC) - if you have a USB modem you will only need 1 Ethernet port
    A PC running Windows 98S, Me, 2000 Professional or XP

    Steps:
    Turn off all hardware (PS2, broadband modem and PC).
    If you are using an external USB modem/router make sure this is connected to your computer.
    Connect the ‘crossover’ Ethernet cable to a spare Ethernet port on your PC and the Ethernet port on the PS2 Network Adapter.
    Connect the ‘straight-through’ cable to your broadband modem/router and a spare PC Ethernet port.
    Turn on your broadband modem. Now turn on your PC.
    Setup Internet Connection Sharing in Windows to share your Internet connection with your PS2. See Windows help section for more support. You may need your Windows installation CD.
    Once Internet Connection Sharing is set up, check your PC can connect to the Internet.
    Turn on your PS2 and insert the Network Access Disc.
    Follow the on-screen setup instructions. Refer to your Network Access Disc manual if you have any problems.


    Please note, your PC must be turned on and connected to the Internet for the PS2 to be online. Connection speeds may also be affected by your PC.

  • AMJAD HUSSAIN Jun 01, 2009

    Hope this must solve the problem and by following instructions you can now easily connect you game station with the internet.
    now cheer up please :) and have a happy gaming.

Hello,

I have heard of this happening before. You are reset to level 1 with negative XP and this stops you from playing online. Your only option is to contact Activision and possibly Microsoft.

Click here for Activision support

I have read that the companies like to blame each other for the problem. So, when you call Activision, make sure they help you or speak to a supervisor if necessary.

How do you get the internet on this my says no compatible access point in range check your connection setting under internet opion and try again error code 051099


Unable to use your wireless signal
Likely cause: It appears that the settings entered into the Nintendo DS are not compatible, or the router's broadcast settings should be changed.
How to fix: Try creating a new connection with your system. Nintendo DSi owners trying to play multiplayer games will want to be sure to read the "Trying to play online multiplayer with Nintendo DSi."

  1. Create a new connection: This error can occur if a setting (like your network's name) has changed since you last connected. If it's been awhile since you connected, or if this is your first time connecting, creating a new connection file will often resolve this error code. Click the button below for your system and we'll walk you through the connection step-by-step.

Trying to play online multiplayer with Nintendo DSi
Even if you are able to connect online and use other online features of the Nintendo DSi, if you are attempting to play multiplayer games but are receiving error code 51099 when you try and connect, then your router is likely using a security type - WPA - that is not compatible with Nintendo DS Game Cards.
Try this:
If you are sure you are using WPA, click here for more information including alternative connection methods. If you're not sure if you're using WPA, you can find out by going into the connection settings on your Nintendo DSi and doing a search for an access point. Follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi and access the System Settings by clicking on the wrench icon

mr_fix3er_0.png 2- Scroll over to the third page, and select "Internet."

mr_fix3er_3.png 5-Click on "Search for an Access Point."

mr_fix3er_4.png 6-The Nintendo DSi will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds. Look for your wireless network.

7-What to do next will depend on the "lock" icon you see next to your network on the Nintendo DSi.


mr_fix3er_5.png No security - This connection type is compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer.

mr_fix3er_6.pngWEP - This connection type is compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer.

mr_fix3er_7.pngWPA - This connection type is not compatible with Nintendo DS Game Card online multiplayer. Security will need to be changed to WEP or turned off in order to play online. Click here for more info.

  • Other suggestions :
  • Make sure your router is set to broadcast in "b" or "mixed" mode. If your wireless router is transmitting in "N" only mode, you will need to switch it to "b/g" or "mixed" mode. For help accessing your router's settings, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). Most routers will have this setting in the "broadcast settings" menu.
    • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Nintendo DS. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
      • Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Nintendo DS is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal.
      • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.
  • Still stuck? We can help! We have found that simply erasing the old connection file and creating a new connection to your router may help. Click the button below for a step-by-step guide.

    Can play with friends on call of duty


    sure you can, all you need is a broadband connection (wireless or wired) and a Playstation Network Account.

    to set up your internet connection, find the network settings on settings menu on XMB, choose 'setup internet connection' or something like this, then follow the guide on screen .

    then just login your Playstation Network Account in PSN menu on XMB (if you don't have one, simply register yourself in PSN menu on XMB in the correspondent option).

    when logged in you PSN account, simply start up your game and access the online multiplayer option, it will connect you to CoD severs.

    then, you must invite your friends (that should be logged on PSN also) to the same game. there should be an option to do this on Online Multiplayer interface.

    Do u have to pay to go online on the xbox 360


    Hello there.

    On the Xbox 360, you'll have two choices of service level: Xbox Live Silver and Xbox Live Gold. Xbox Live Silver will offer limited Xbox Live functionality at no cost, while the Gold package will be a fully functional pay service.

    The Xbox Live Silver service means you can connect your Xbox 360 console to a broadband Internet connection and get functionality right out of the box without having to pay any amount of money.

    With Xbox Live Silver you can:
    • Create an online Gamer Profile
    • Access the Xbox Live Marketplace
    • Engage in voice and text messaging
    • Talk to a single friend at a time using voice chat
    • Receive video messages from Gold level members
    • Access massively multiplayer online games (additional fees may apply)
    The Xbox Live Gold is similar to the current paid Xbox Live service. The Xbox Live Gold service delivers the complete online connection package. With Xbox Live Gold you have all the features of Silver level, and additionally:

    • Play multiplayer games online
    • Video chat
    • Multiplayer online tournaments
    • Participate in Xbox Live online programming, such as Game with Fame, Play and Win, and Prime Time activities.
    Hope this clarifies things for you.
