    Well first of all i not sure about Category 5 cable , you may need to use a crossover cable , which looks the same pritty much but is used for communcating the 2 links , full duplex, networking game consoles can be very tricky if u have not done it before , with link they should detect each other automaticly , if there is a setting in there DHCP enable , enable that on both machine's then retart them both , also to do this , you will need 2 copy's of the game , one for each console , you cant do it with just 1 , you may also need to set up static ip , but i dont think u do , thats only for when connection a game console to a pc , here is a link that can guide you through the steps

    also there is a special ps2 link cable that you can buy , this would be a full automatic way of doing it , as the cat 5 cable is more for console to pc networking

    The first link i gave you is for linking ps2 to pc , so probably not what u want , if the first ways dont help u , i suggest you buy the ps2 link cable , for ease of use , and remember you will need to copies of each game you want to play with system link

Medal of Honor European Assault- PS2

This may be and indication that there is a scratch on the disc. There isnt much that can be done about that. I have heard some rather odd solutions to this problem. I have been told that If you put the disc in a dishwasher this gets rid of any problem like this.

The multitap isn't working at my playstation 2

i have had a ps2 multitap ever since i bought a ps2. its great, allwows you to play 4 players and is extremly fun. from my experiences:
- u cannot plug in into a ps
- u can use ps multitap on ps2, however...u cannot use ps2 dualshock conrollers
- i have tried using my multitap on my mates ps2 and for some odd reason, it does not work on that ps2 (theres nothing wrong with the ps2)
- when using for some games eg. defjam fight foor ny...u have to plug it in the second port of the ps2..only then you can play more then 1 player
- most of the games you just have to plug it normally in the first port
- i have never dropped the multitap..however ..some times it does not work propelrly, unless you try again
- if are planning to get medal of honour: european assault... then it is vital to get a multitap because u cannot play against multiplayer mode.
the RRP is 29.99 pound however.. you can get it cheaper from ebay
overall the multitap is great fun if you want to play 4 players... or else...... This multitap for the PS2 worked great!!! The thing is that this version of the multitap will only work for the 70000 series PS2's (the PS2 slim) and is not compatible with the 30000 and 50000 series. Be sure to check your PS2 for the correct series number and purchase accordingly.

Multi-players on games onslim PS2

On some games, Call of duty and medal of honour Rising sun, have a option for multiplayer. However, there are two types of multiplayer.
First type is the one that you are thinking of which is to be able to play face to face with two controllers.
Second type is online multiplayer which requires and internet connection.

in essance Call of duty 1 & 2 are single player games.

Unable to play any game

Try a hard shutdown unplugging the system from the wall for a while.

It could also be that you need to download a system update from the network.

If that doesn't work, I would contact Sony Support. It may be a hardware/system crash.
