Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

XBOX360 ELITE My son has a PS2 which by use of a netgear switch he use to play online whilst i was on the internet through our Virgin broadband. However this has not proved possible with the XBOX i bought him at Christmas. Despite the switch only one of these devices will work on line at any one time either the XBOX or the PC depending which had been accessed first. Is this because the XBOX needs a faster delivery speed? My current broadband feeds at 4 KB would a larger/faster download help or is there another possible problem

Yes you will need a faster speed. the minimum is 6kb. try for that or a higher one.

My ps2 wont log onto my internet past checking the dnsa?


From memory of sons PS3 but should be similar in ps2---In set up--- check IP address settings are on auto make sure you have the right WIFI network -type indicated,.... and above all make sure your WIFI signal is in range and you have a good signal when setting up.....The problem I had with sons PS3 was similar nothing indicated that the signal wasn't good enough...i did everything i could think of including putting static ip addresses---nothing worked...to cut the story short, it turned out that the wifi which should have been in range wasn't good enough... accidentally got a connection in auto a couple of times which bombed out quickly...But---after replacing wifi with a better range unit and updating broadband all such problems disappeared

Can connect to internet, but not playstation network to play call of duty online. no problem with streaming netflix. just get error code when needing to sign into the playstation network.


That is most probably result of server host not working anymore, check Call of duty (for example 4, black ops....etc) _____(Platform, PS2,PS3,XBox,...) online status. If they are not working, for that time you wont be able to play it. As far as you have explained you have configured your console online, so its not problem with you :) Good luck my friend! :)) Thx for asking me.

And please rate my solution! :) Thx in advance .Alex

How to play PS2 online


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.

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.
CALL UP YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PEOPLE AND TELL THEM TO TAKE THE ******* THING OFF SO U CAN ******* PLAY. I ALSO FOUND THAT LIMEWIRE WOULD NOW WORK ON MY COMPUTER AS WELL.
By doing this you will open peer to peer connections with other programs and players online.
