Re: need help with getting madden08 online

Well 1. you need a router
2. if you read the instructions with your ether net you are not supposed to plug into the one side ((BAD NO NO )) trying to run it through your pc is a pain cuzz the stupid format disk does not work on your pc... easy way use the dial up cuzz they want you too use on of there service providers or call your dsl provider for your login and password stuff... i run mine with a differnt ether net box i got from my cable company so i can share my dsl ip address and connection ..its a pain i would start with your service provider first.

Cant get online in mercs2

have you made a "network configuration file" ?.... you should have received a cd when you got your PS2, it should have something like Network Access Disk labeled on it somewhere, put that in your ps2, and just go through the prompts and do what it tells you to do... after you've saved the network configuration file to your memory card (uses something like 137Kb), now when you put in mercs2 and try and go online.. select the network connection you just made

This is usually the cause of a dirty disk and/or reading lens. If you bought different consoles and disks, this may be a result of unforunate coincedences.
Another thing that people dont know about however, is that video game creators will make the game faulty on purpose, to make it freeze, JUST before you get to the end of the game, this is so you will stay interested and buy more of their games.
Also, you may have a fan problem, after the game freezes, check and see if the ps2 is hot, it may be over heated.
Try unplugging it for 24 hours, then retry.
Have a good night

On some models, the Ethernet comes from a PC board searate from the Motherboard. Now you can get a motherboard replaced for under $60. Check out the playstationclinic. Nothing you can really do if the Ethernet Chip is blasted.
