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
most games require you have a certain amount of mbps (speed of connection) to prevent lagging. a slow connection may be your problem. if you are using a wireless adapter try actually plugging the ethernet cable into the console. also, have you set up your network options and saved them to a memory card?
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.
To connect to the internetfor online gaming(you cannot surf the web with a PS2) you simply needto buy a "PS2 Network Adapter". It hooks to the back of your PS2 systembehind the removable plate, and you connect either a standard phoneline, or an Ethernet cable into it. A bonus is that there are nomonthly payments like the XBOX system, so all you have to do is buy theadapter and you are set.
Justbuy that adapter and follow the instructions that come with it. I willhave to warn you though, the PS2 online community is not linked to thePS3 online community, so there may not be many players to play againstsince most of them do not use the PS2 online anymore.
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.
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.
The brown tape thing is the interface cable that connects the drive to the ps2. You need to take the unit apart and find out where that cable plugs back into. There will be someplace inside the machine that the tape looking cable will plug back into.
One inserted check the plug slot to make sure the cable inserts firmly and stays in place. If it does not you're going to need to keep in in place with maybe some tape or super glue.
