    Hello,
    I'm utterly out of my depth with online connections and such so any help will be greatly appreciated.
    I have a PS2, Network Adapter and a Broadband Modem/Router. At the moment it is not connected to my PC.
    I just want to know if I can (simply!) connect my PS2 to the modem/router and get connected that way. I'm certain the leads are correct. My ISP is Wannadoo.
    Apologies for sounding dumb :confused:

    Cheers :beer:

    I too have ltd info on this. Im afraid I cannot help regarding ISP but certainly as long as you dont want to be online with the PC at the same time then the simplest connection is from your network adapter straight to the Modem/Router with the appropriate cable.

    Your best bet is to put some keywords such as " Network Adapter" in this websites search engine as there should be loads of queries regarding this type of question ( including mine when I 1st dabbled in online with my Xbox)

    Thanks for the reply!
    I've not had time to get to grips with getting online yet. It gives me too much of a headache!
    As long as I am online by the time GT4 comes out I'll be happy.
    I'll make a few searches for more info. Thanks again!

    How about going to the official uk ps2 site www.playstation2.co.uk and check out their networking guides. Had a look myself but don't have the kit as yet. So haven't tried it myself.

    It looks like the guides are very useful.
