I'm having a problem setting up the networking with SMS. Actually I can't get the network setup with other programs either (such as myPS2).
Here's what is happening. I have a crossover cable setup with my computer. The cable is working fine, as I usually share my wireless internet with my other computer on this cable. When I start SMS and the network initializes, my computer's LAN changes from unplugged to active. It gets assigned the server ip (192.168.0.1), but I am unable to ping my PS2.
In SMS, if I try to edit ipconfig.dat and save, it gives an error. It says "saving.." and then "Error (press "cross" to continue)..."
My PSTwo is brand new, and I'm using Swap Magic 3.6 to boot SMS off my memory card.
If anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it.
