Playstation 2 slimline

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

Hi Crazymatt,

You need to connect to the Cablemodem or have a router that will allow connection for both your PS2 and your computer. Connecting to your computer does not allow a path to the internet for your PS2.

How do I hook up a router to my playstation 3 with my comcast connection? I want to run my pc and my playstation 3 and not have to unplug and plug the ethernet cable back and forth.

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,

Connecting internet to the playstation 3

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, :)

Can i use my cricket broadband modem for my ps2 slimline?

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.

Black and white picture only - ps2 slimline

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

Can we Network Playstation2?

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 !

Hope This Helps !?

Upgrade ps2 from internet

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.

Connecting online with ps2 slim

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.
