Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Playing Online I'm trying to plat onine. I set up my configuration and it was able to connect with the connection test. I reset the system but when I try to play online it tells me I have the wrong network connection. I did check to make sure nothing changed when I reset and everything is ok. I even did another connection test which was fine. Am I doing something wrong?

While playing cod black ops online I go into a match and after like 5 minutes it come up connection interrupt every time I go into a match

If your nat type is anything other than nat type 2 then you may have issues with playing online. To determine that run a test connection on your game system and it will tell you. Try resetting your modem/router and if that doesn't work you will have to get into the mode/router configurations via PC and put you console outside the firewall as a DMZ host. To help you with that I will need to know what isp you are using and will be able to help you set that up. Good luck!

I cannot play call of duty black ops online. However, I can play any other game online. I have tried troubleshooting. I reset my router, had a friend bring his copy of the game over that he plays online...

Nat Type has to be 2 any other Nat Type will have conflicts with online play no matter what other black ops you try. Do a connection test from your PS3 and make sure the Nat Type is 2, if its not do a full reset on your mode/router if that doesn't work then you will have to get into your modems configurations via PC and set your PS3 as a DMZ host. I can help with that if you need the help. Good Luck!

I plugged in a Ethernet cable directly into my PS3, and when I try and test the connection it says, "unable to obtain ip address" I have a wired connection for my desktop and it works fine, so i...

You cannot simply just do a connection test. You have to set it up:

Do the following:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)

If "USE PROXY SERVER" is highlighted, then just proceed by clicking the right arrow on the D pad.

I can't play any sound from the tv (a Philips ambilight) through the sound system, despite trying every lead configuration in the manual

Make sure that you are connected to 'outputs' on the TV. Make sure that you set the sound system to the correct input that corresponds with your cable. Run a check on the sound system to make sure that the speakers are working and configured correctly using the test-tone facility.

PS3 and Netgear WGR614 V7 Router

Basically the PS3 wireless settings needs to be configures with the Netgear wireless router settings.
To test if the modem is connects to the Internet, connect a computer into the modem, if it works then the modem is configured correctly. If it doesn't work, then contact your ISP and get them to test your modem connection.
For details on how to configure the PS3 click on the WEB link :-

When trying to play a CD it keeps saying format unsupported

Are you trying to plat a CD-R or CD-R/W?
If you are make sure the gsx can support the format of course...
the next most common problem is the CD was not finalized.
the table of contents is written to the disc when you close or finalize the disc... if it is not finalized it usually can only be played on the computer it was burned on. and sometimes other computers depending on their configuration.

In any case you probably need to finalize the CD

Enter no password in boot monitor mode.

Enter boot system flash primary (or secondary).

At the prompt enter the following commands:

Laptop can't connect to internet

1) Your Network or DSL router may have bad or missing information. Powercycle your router and/or rebuild the configuration in your router.
2) Double-check your cabling to the computer. Make sure you have the correct type of cabling, straight-through CAT 5 or possibly a crossover cable and try another cable or test the cable to make sure its working properly.
3) Check your network card to make sure its configured correctly and working properly. Many times setting the network card to 10Mbps/Full Duplex will solve this issue. To do this, open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. Go to the properties of the Network card, click on the Advanced tab and find the Link Speed and Duplex section. Change it from Auto Detect to 10Mbps/Full Duplex.
4) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection. You may have to resolve the problem by even uninstalling and reinstalling the firewall.
5) Check your IP address assignments and workgroup settings in the computer for accuracy. Statically assign IPs to the computers in your network.
6) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.

Hold the reset pin on the back of the router for 30 seconds to reset the router configuration.

You might have to try a few times.

See if your computer connects to the default LINKSYS ssid.

If you are able to connect, then it was a configuration issue. Or some corruption of the router's firmware.

Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, and go to username: (nothing) password: admin

Download the latest firmware for the router, and configure it for better security. Do the configuration step by step, to see which actual part of the securing stops communications.


A good security measure would be the following, test wireless connection after each change (you would need to configure your computer wireless settings accordingly. You have to be connected by a wire while doing the changes or you might lock yourself out):

1. change the router password

2. Turn off SSID broadcasting

3. Change the ssid from LINKSYS to something only you would know, like BwRiAfNiDY (it is not case sensitive). Write down the name as you will need it to configure the laptop wireless.

4. Setup personal WPA TKIP / AES encryption

If you are far away from the router when using it wirelessly, and it starts losing connectivity, drop it's speed to a lower setting.
