The network adapter should of included a setup disk that you pop into the playstation and it sets up your networking settings, also make sure it's not firewall issues, or the cable that you are using to connect the PS2 to the modem / or router!

Cant get online in mercs2

have you made a "network configuration file" ?.... you should have received a cd when you got your PS2, it should have something like Network Access Disk labeled on it somewhere, put that in your ps2, and just go through the prompts and do what it tells you to do... after you've saved the network configuration file to your memory card (uses something like 137Kb), now when you put in mercs2 and try and go online.. select the network connection you just made

Im from manila..can't play a game online...

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?

Cant play ps2 games online

I have tried the same thing and the only thing that i have found is that Play Station has took down the ps2 online network for the ps3

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.

Have fun and have at it!

Cant get my ps2 to go online

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.

Here are two links to what you need:

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.

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.

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.
