Weird problem with Ps2 Playing Online
Weird problem with Ps2 Playing Online –
Alright. I believe I have a magic 4 chip or something, not exactly sure.
The problem is when I connect online with the newer games (with dnas patch) no games show up on the server list.
On all the older games I can play online. Like Tony Hawk Pro Skater I can see all the servers fine and play on them.
But newer games like Siphon Filter or Tom Clancy's Rainbow Lockdown, no server games show up.
I have a lynksis router and I got DMZ on the ip that is my ps2.
no itz your computer you shold open a port or something,
If you connect directly from Modem to PS2 with nothing in-between at all, such as routers etc.. then you won't have a problem.

I can't do that.. need the router for the whole family...
damn I can't figure out how to fix this crap.
I can't figure out the problem!!!!!!!1 waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
seems that games that use gamespy to connect have problems..
Black Hawk Down Delta Force is playable, but I need to use instant action, and after about 3 minutes it disconnects due to error.
Mezult is right. You need to open up a port so that the PS2 can connect through properly. Gamespy goes through a few different ports, so you will have to try to detect which port it wants to connect through! Hope that helps!!
DMZ should cover you for port fowarding, so i'm not sure what the problem could be. i have V8 Supercars Australia 2 (reasonably recent i guess), which uses GameSpy, but i have no problem connecting through a router.
a trick you might be able to use if your ISP allows you to do it, is to set your modem to bridging mode, then you will have to use PPPoE or PPPoA or something to connect the ps2 directly to the ISP. if your ISP allows you more than one IP address, you could also hook up a router to the modem and have it logged in... i do this by hooking the modem's output to the router/switch's normal port, then a feedback from the router/switch to it's own WAN port, and have the pc's and ps2's in the other ports in the switch...
it allows the PS2, and any PC to establish a direct connection to the ISP (and so get their own dedicated IP address) while not interfering with the normal working of the router and other pc's using it for the internet... don't know if your ISP would allow you to use up more than one of their IP's though... if it's a large ISP i would guess not. (without an extra fee or something)
(i tested out mine once, i got all of my pc's and ps2, and router logged in all at once... 5 connections in total...)
