Re: ps2 playing online madden with the network adaptor

  1. Turn off your PS2 console.
  2. Get your CAT5 Cable (link varies based on where your router or modem is).
  3. Put one end of the cable into the port of the Network adapter (or slim PS2 and PSX) port labeled "Network".
  4. Connect the other end in a free port in your router (or on the port on your broadband modem).
  5. Turn on PS2.
  6. Turn on modem (or router).
  7. Put in online game.
  8. Go to the online section in the game.
  9. Create a network Configuration
  10. Load it
  11. Create an ID.

Playing madden 09 online

If it says ea servers not available that means the servers are down for maintenance, this is not unusual for video game servers, happens once or twice a month....

Also keep in mind playstation servers and xbox server are totally different.

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.

PS2 online gaming with Madden 08

Erase all madden data from your memory card including network configuration and download the latest rosters and try again. The error happens when the rosters (between the two people playing) dont match and you try to connect online. Download the rosters and dont mess with them! This worked for me and i was getting a buzzing sound every time i tried to connect to a game online, i even went out and rented a another copy of the game, so definately a memory card problem.
