Re: connecting online

Am I missing something? Is the psp2 portable slim able to get internet games using a wireless router, or do I have to hook it up to the PC in order to get this feature? Keeps asking me to get a flash player wish I have done. trying to go to and play pool.

I just bought my first ps3 in order to play some friends in madden online. I have everything connected and can go on the internet and watch netflix, the only things i can not do is access the playstation...

First make sure that your PS3 connects with your acces point eather wireless or with wire, te second step is configurate your PS3 for wire connection or wireless connection.
These settings are found under the network settings.
Also see the manual to see how you need to configurate the PS3 in detail.

Allso make sure when the PS3 is connected corectly to the acces point that the firewall of the acces point is not interfearing the connection.

Ps2 slim madden 08 lag?

yeah, that happens on mine sometimes. IT happens on both the ps2 regular and my madden 07 for psp. I thin it's probably just trying to do too much at once, and slows down because the processor isn't powerful enough.

Need help!!!!!!!!!

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.

Connecting online Madden 08 ps2

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.
By doing this you will open peer to peer connections with other programs and players online.
