    A 1 port router? 1 way in, 1 way out....

    This isn't going to let you share an IP address without having other routers in the home network.

    You need a Linksys BEFSR41 4 Port Cable/DSL Router to allow you to connect both a PC and PS2 at the same time. Then you aren't messing around with the cabling each time you want to swap, and it lets my missus on the internet whilst I am online at Socom...

    Good networking.

    Can you use wireless routers with the PS2 adaptor to save laying cables.

    If the usb routers are more than £8 over an ethernet one then get a pci card and an ethernet router ... much simpler, no drivers and no cpu overheads ...

    I use a netgear 814 and airport ... plenty of ports for my macs (ps2 when I can get a kit) and spare ports for rebuilding mates pc's !!
