OPL, Windows 7prox64, and lots of details/problems thanks ahead of time
Well guys, i know there a whole bunch of posts everywhere and ive tried to follow directions on this forum and practically every website i could ever imagin, youtube videos, everything...
I always get no success....
Im not sure what it is that im doing wrong...
I have an alienware aurora tower with both wireless and an ethernet port.
i am running windows 7 pro x64
I get my wireless internet from a 2wire box, althout im not sure if that makes a difference here.
My wireless internet is set on the router to always assign my pc the following information: its setup with dhcp, but no matter what and because its always on, and in my router config, it will always, give it this

in case u dont like looking at ppics then thats:
ip 172.16.1.65 (preferred)
gw 172.16.1.254 ->dns and dhcp are the same as this.
then theres my local area connection (where the ps2 is plugged in with crossover cable)

i should manually be putting this in, correct?
but then what do i enter in the ipv4 fields?
is it okay for
and then leave the rest blank?
then on opl
gw 172.16.1.254 (assuming its the same as the computer)
user GUEST -> my compuoter has Guest enabled, but its not in caps, does that make a difference even?
Finally, i have gone to user accounts and enabled the guest account on my pc, just in case that makes a difference....
not only that, but i have setup the file and sharing options in the network and sharing center, the top one is cut off, but it is network discovery and is on,..

i have right clicked and shared the C:\PS2SMB\ Folder, and it has CD AND DVD folders in it, and inside the DVD folder is a SLUS_21419.DOC.iso which is Dirge of Cerberus
So, then i save my changes..
Btw my ps2 has a modchip in it, im not sure what kind.. maybe DMS. it boots ps2dvd, resets itself in PS1 mode and starts those up, take dual layers, and i believe reboots in dvd mode, plus i can disable it by starting upo holding reset for a few seconds, its a slim black ps2, cant remember the model, i have to disable it for fmcboot or else my system reboots constantly and then my clock and stuff have to be reset after,.. so i boot swap magic 8 and use the smboot options to boot programs from MC instead of fmcboot, because i kept messing up my system by forgetting to turn off the modchip
before starting it, and ive tried the swap magic 8 disc both with the modchip on and off with these settings.
we will also note that windows firewall is off for both privat (home and work) and public networks, that my wireless is set to a work network so there is no homegroup crap... and if you wanna see that before i turn on the ps2, then here ya go

i dunno, so i bridge them or something?
alright, now that you have an idea of my setup,you can see my agony,keep in mind i will restart my computer at this point, just incse and for completeness.
now ive restarted the ps2, wth the modchip off, open swap magic disc, choose the smboot with openloader.with all the setup good to go(or so i would think but apparently not)
i will also note that eth device startup is manual..
so i hit x and i wait.
now it says network cable unplugged still on the pc end on my
whats worse is that i can get it to say the ps2 is plugged in, if i open my second smboot, which is ulauncelf..
set my network configurations to
then i go to home-> ps2 net to try and run the ftp now it actually notices the ps2 is on and trying to get on my crossover, but now i have this garbage

basically says my ps2 is there, unidentified, and has no network access in the network and sharing center, which is i believe the problem. and ive heard its sometimes easier to start with ulaunchelf tog et the connection then use opl afterwards, so i started going this route.
now i just went and found in the advanced windows firewall i could also turn off the domain firewall, so i did that, ill try both again, then i tihnk im ready to break the stupid 3000 dollar computer and get one with xp so i dont have to be a genius to ****in use a network ><
the above extra tidbit ofcourse did nothing oh joy.
any thoughts on my settings= im probably using the wrong numbers somewhere in there and its making me puke my balls up thru my nose. :chinscrat
greatly appreciated for the help.. maybe even paypal the person a bit of scril if they can make it work for me
also when trying to connect to the ps2ftp i get this
