Trying to connect to Comcast cable. Have an ethernet cable which I plug into back of playstation and other end into the back of computer - is there a particular place where you have to plug in on your computer in case I hooked wrong? Something does come up but asks for disc - I bought this used so don't have a disc - do I need one? If there is something else I need to do after hooking up, let me know

there should be some other ports on the router if not it is a modem and you will have to buy a router, just plug a different cable into other router port and the other end into ps3 and presto .If no router buy one and run the one that goes to pc to router internet port than you need 2 cables that that you plug into different ports then to pc and ps3 . you can call me for free advice if none of this makes sence,
Before connecting the ethernet cable to the back of your Playstaion3 hold the modem reset button for 15 seconds, when 15 secs are up connect the ethernet cable to your ps3 system, wait until tour Comcast High Speed Internet goes online again (all the lights are showing fine) then try setting up your Playstation connection settings again, it might work since now you have reseted your modem and the modem will send information to new device, I hope this information works for you, :)
you can set your playstation 3 online by two ways, 1- by a wired connection, and 2- Wireless,
1-Wired Connection: Plug an ethernet cable from your highspeed modem to the back ethernet input on your ps3 system, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wired Connection. and follow steps
2- Wireless Connection: You must have a Router connecting ethernet cable from your intenet modem to the router, and follow on your ps3: Network Connection > Internet Connection Settings > Easy > Wireless Connection and follow steps,
hope this helped you on setting up your ps3 connection :)
So long as the modem uses an ethernet connection, it should work. The ethernet cable that you normally route into your computer, simply plug it in the ethernet plug on the back of the ps2. When you use an online multiplayer enabled game, you'll simply have to go through the setup of it registering your information.
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!
The cable isprobably faulty or damaged. Try replacing it with another one. The socket on the back marked network is a ethernet port which allows players to connect to the PSN or Playstation Network allowing you to game other people around the world with supported games
Yes it is possible to network your PS2. Their are 2 methods, you can either Link it up Via System-Link direct to another PS2 which involves using an Ethernet cable being plugged into the back of both consoles.
or alternatively you can hook up your PS2 to your home network (if you have one), Simply plug an Ethernet cable into the back of the PS2. and into one of the Empty LAN Slots on the back of your Router !
well im not sure, to connect it by using 1 ethernet cord. If you have a slimline it's in the back. If you have a fat one, buy the expansion back and connect it to the back of it. Now there is a ethernet plug in on the back of every computer, so connect one end to the ps2 and the other to the computer.
On some models, the Ethernet comes from a PC board searate from the Motherboard. Now you can get a motherboard replaced for under $60. Check out the playstationclinic. Nothing you can really do if the Ethernet Chip is blasted.
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.
