MY PS2 IS NOT PLUGGED INTO A ROUTER IT IS PLUGGED INTO THE BACK OF MY PC (if another person asks me that i might scream, im not being rude or anything but yeah, thanks ;D )
First off buy a crossover cable or make it yourself.
To make your own, get a cat 5 cable, cut it in half, flip one end over and splice them together.
I'm now going to assume you have windows 7, go to [Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center] on the left hand side click Change Adapter Settings. Right click Local Area Connection got to Properties. Highlight, Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), click Properties.
IP address: 192.168.0.2

Go to [Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Advanced Sharing Settings]
Go to Public
turn on Network Discovery
turn on File and Printer Sharing
turn off Public Folder Sharing
Use 128-bit encryption
Turn Off Password Protected Sharing
click Save Changes
Go to your network settings in OPL
Share Name: PS2SMB
If your playing your PS2 games over a network
Right Click and go to Properties of your partition
Go to Sharing -> Advanced Sharing
Click Share this folder
Share Name Should be-PS2SMB all uppercase

click ok apply ok.
Uhh, just have to pipe in here. That is not how you make a crossover cable. There are 2 methods of wiring. Depending on how one end is already wired (hold the plug whichever way you like and keep mind of the order of wires. The other side, you'll want to do the other wiring that doesn't look like the side you have).
Wiring A- Orange/white, orange, green/white, blue, blue/white, green, brown/white, brown
Wiring B- Green/white, green, orange/white, blue, blue/white, orange, brown/white, brown
Yeah sorry about that. I have Flat ethernet cables. My bad everybody! THx for catching that chesh!!
I have a cable that has on both sides the same wiring and that is Wiring A- Orange/white, orange, green/white, blue, blue/white, green, brown/white, brown
Is that a crossover cable? Is that good one for connecting PS2 to PC?
If both ends have the same wire colors in the same order then it is a patch cable.
A crossover cable will have a different color order on each end. Make sure you check all the wires because a few colors will still be in the same order on a crossover cable.
BTW, you shouldn't rely on the specific colors since not all cables use the same wire colors.
In your specific case, you can't connect a patch cable directly to a PC (well, maybe some NICs can figure it out, but you're probably going to have trouble.) You need to buy a crossover cable. Or use the patch cable to connect both your PS2 and PC to a router.
Ok super thanks for the answer.
