I get an active network connection when activating the HOST application in uLE, but HOST just hangs and I don't get any further. I have to hard-restart the PS2.
The same thing happens in HDLD-SVR and SMS. I don't wish to mention them in this section of the forum, but I think it might be helpful in diagnosing my problem. I do use a crossover cable, I even bought another to make sure it wasn't a simple cabling problem.
I have attached pictures (I don't have enough posts under my belt to post a link to a web page I built with the pictures, sorry for so many picture attachments), including a few of the uLE network settings, TCP-IP settings and HDLD and SMS, only to clarify that uLE HOST is not the only app that freezes during network initialization.
They all freeze up, but they all do make a connection to my computer (laptop). So once the freeze happens and the network is active, I can't do anything else but shut down the PS2 and try again (over and over again).. I'm beginning to think that my network adapter is bad. I just got it and it has never successfully connected to be of any use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
