    Im having problems connecting my ps2 to the internet.

    The problem is that it believes the cable is not connected between the pc and ps2. The cable is connected via a network card.

    Im running windows xp, AOL internet V9 via a USB modem.

    Ive enabled windows Internet Connection Sharing, but still have problems.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    are you using a crossover cable. when you connect your ps2 to your ethernet card on the pc, you need a crossover cable. but if u connect it to a router, then you can use a regular cable.

    It has worked but when I tried to connect to users it wouldnt let me.

    I found out this was due to my firewall so I sorted that and was playing last night, but now it wont let me again
