I would greatly apriceat any assistace you could provide, I have a similar issue. I have been played online before but that was with a eithenet cord coming out the wall, My new ISP issues connection Via wireless modem which has one male output and looks alot like my thumb drive, leaving my eithernet port open....
is it possible to connect my PS2 directly to my PC to play online?
I have been doing research and have messed with my ICS, yet no luck....Iam i doing somthing wrong?
I have a spare linksys cable modem also a DYNEX 4 port Hub, could these be of any use?
DO they make a something like a USB to Eithernet cord which converts, because that would solve my problem right...?
If I MUST, which equipment would be compatible with my USB Modem, I have yet to find a router with a USB input only eithernet jacks?
Again I would greatly apriceate your expertise or any light you could shed.
Presumably the USB connection provided by your ISP leads to hardware that responds like some standard USB network adaptor, with 'self-configured' DHCP setup for simplest possible internet connection.

This means that you should be able to use your normal ethernet port to connect with your PS2 using a simple cross-connect cable, and configuring that PC port and the PS2 network config to share a local subnet using an IP range differing from that of the USB adaptor. (You should be able to find that too in the normal 'Network Connections on your PC). And with both adaptors working you should be able to use ICS to make the PC route traffic of the PS2 for Internet access too.
The only problem with this, just as when doing it with normal ethernet ports (rather than that special USB connection) is that we don't have direct control over the port prioritization of Windows, which most likely will treat the first normal ethernet port found as the 'default' gateway to be used for Internet traffic, which will not work in your case.
This may require some register hack to enforce use of the USB port as default IP gateway, but unfortunately I'm not sure exactly how to do that...
