    Hey, i know my way around computers pretty well now, except, i dont know anything about LAN, so i was hoping you could help me, i want to get a LAN party going for some of the other gamers here in my town.. First off i know im gona need a HUB and RJ45 lines, i got that part, but the only thing is i tried doing this with a really small HUB that was meant for the xbox, and i coudltn get it to work, so i was hoping some one could walk me through it, and recomend a HUB to buy, and stuff like that ,, thank you..

    Get a 10/100 switch with enough ports capable of supporting the number of people you wish to host. From there, it's just a matter of configuring each host to communicate with each other (TCP/IP).

    yes some games for ps2 need to have broadband, some don't,most 1st person shooters need broadband,if i were u i would forget the ps2 internet, plus ...i heard sony sayin they were gonna start making their internet users pay monthly..no offense ..ps2 internet is a waste..cuz u can't tweak the internet connection...this is just my opinion... u can listen or not..does'nt matter
