Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
I am trying to connect online to Madden 08, PS2 Slim. First, I go to Game Modes > Play Online. When trying to advance from the EA Nation page, I am knocked back to the memory card screen.
I am given, "No valid EA login found on memory card..." I have the option to Go to Account Setup or Back. Whatever I choose, I am sent back to the screen where you can go copy and delete items from the memory card.
I am using a DSL Broadband router with a Belkin 4 port/wireless router and there are two other computers currently functioning fine. The PS is wired to the router, and I can see the light "on" on the router.
When I ran the online startup disc, I had connectivity. When I try to play though, the (Network configuration) account is not valid. Please help. Thanks for your help.
I experienced the same problem. I have the ps2 slim. The problem was so bad that i had the slim for about 3 years and still could not play any ea games online. About 2 months ago i finally got it to work though, allowing me to play madden ncaa and many other sports games from ea. I also have dsl broadband just like you. I do not have a router though. I just hooked my ethernet cord straight into the back on the ps2, my computer is really close by. I would reccomend a router though.
Enough of this bs though. Now solving the problem. There was actually a firewall keeping me from connecting to ea servers. Which in turn meant no ea account and no ea play online. Go onto your computer and turn your FIREWALLS OFF. This still may not work though. I done this and an unknown firewall was still blocking it. THERE WAS A FIREWALL IN MY MODEM.
CALL UP YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PEOPLE AND TELL THEM TO TAKE THE ******* THING OFF SO U CAN ******* PLAY. I ALSO FOUND THAT LIMEWIRE WOULD NOW WORK ON MY COMPUTER AS WELL.
By doing this you will open peer to peer connections with other programs and players online.
