Can't connect my ps2 slimline wireless to play online

Hooked up a new wireless router. works fine when hardwired to the ps2 but won't work wireless. talked with tech's at sony and pc support. nobody wants to help out. talked with my service provider that i got the router from and they tell me they do not support sony so they won't help. was told by the guy at sony that opening some online ports might solve the problem. i don't have a clue how to do that. he gave me a list of the ports. they are: tcp # 80, 443, 5223, 10070 to 10080
udp# 3478, 3479, 3658, 10070
if anyone out there could help me with this i would be grateful

Ok heres what you do I was in ur same situation about a month ago folow these instructions carefully.

wired: get a ethernet(network) cord and hook it into the network slot in the back of the ps2 slim, now take that cord and hook it either to your modem or ur router.

wireless: if u want to do this u need a lot of money and a wireless USB ethernet thing or just a wireless ethernet

heres a diagram


hope this stuff was hopefull if u still have any questions email me at

How are you connected? Is it hardwired or wireless? Check wireless router settings, and if possible check rj-45 ends. Hope I can help let me know.

My son has a ps2 slimline and wants to play on the internet. We have a linksys wireless routher already. Can the slimline be set up to use that or do we need something else

should be able to use linksys but i always just plugged in with a direct ethernet cord connection. you also have to have the online setup disk for ps2 which should have come with the ps2 slimline. just install disk and follow instructions from there! GOOD LUCK!

Rock band won't play on my playstation2 slimline

We had the same problem, we even went and bought a whole new Rock Band. My husband turned our PS2 slimline on the side and it started working. I don't know why or how, I just know it worked for us. Give it a try and I hope it works for you also.

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.

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.

First off get a network adaptor)if u hav the slimline then it comes with it. Then u need 2 buy a ethernet cable. Now that you hav both turn off ur computer and router and ps2. connect the cable to the back of the router and to the back of the ps2. Then turn the router and modem on. Then turn the ps2 on. Finally place the start-up disk(which was given to you with your ps2) in your ps2 and follow the on screen directions.
