    if you have a router, just connect the ps2 to a port on your router. if you dont have a router you should get on since there like 5 dollars, connect that to your WAN on your cable modem and then plug your compouter into the router and then your ps2 and any thing else that needs the internet.

    well, if your modem has both usb and ethernet connections, like mine does, then you could jsut connect the pc with usb and the ps2 with ethernet

    of course, if you ahve more than one pc that need internet, that buggers it up, lol

    what i am now gonna do is get me a cheap ethernet hub thing, then i can connect one pc via usb downstairs, then i will connect the modem to the hub upstairs via ethernet, then, connect my ps2 and upstairs pc to the hub via ethernet cables

    woo

    of course itll all run uuber slow now if they're all usign the ent at once, hahaha

    i actually didnt realise you could get these thigns for so cheap

    i just spoke to the guy on the market, and he said he has loads in stock (didnt have them with him though, so i gotta wait till tuesday)

    i was expecting to have to pay like 30 or 40 quid, but apparently he sells them for a fiver!
