If you are referring to the removable modem that attaches to the PS2 expansion then yes you can remove it and still play games offline with no issue. You will be unable to play games that offer online content though most will still allow you to play a single or offline campaign.
Do you have it hooked up to the computer or the modem.The ethernet from the console connects into the modem so firewall should not be an issue.Also,most games only support the 2 latest versions of the game for online play.If you are getting a could not find server message or something similar,your game is no longer online playable.Like now would be Madden 2009 and 10 only.If you have it hooked up like I said,just post a comment to this and I will get an auto email with your comment.
Good luck! Greg
So long as the modem uses an ethernet connection, it should work. The ethernet cable that you normally route into your computer, simply plug it in the ethernet plug on the back of the ps2. When you use an online multiplayer enabled game, you'll simply have to go through the setup of it registering your information.
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.
There should be a setup disk that came with the network adapter.
Put that in, and it's a simple walk-through.
If you don't have it, then Madden 08 has an automatic connection sequence, just go online with it, and it should do it all for you.
If you have a cable connection (Cable Broadband), then its going to DHCP connection (or automatic) If it's DSL, then you may have a static IP address, and you may want to contact your ISP for further help. You would need to manually assign an IP address to your PS2.
If you have it set up correctly, and its a cable modem you've got, then you may want to reboot everything.
Unplug power to the modem and router and also make sure the PS2 is off.
Plug modem back in, then router, and turn PS2 and try connecting agian.
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.
