Big thanks to Eric Sasavicz and JD for this guide.
To get your PS2 online with dial up (those without DSL or cable)
What you need:
-Ethernet card/network card ($15 to $20 bucks)
-hub/switch (cheap ones are 4 port around $40 dollars or so, I bought a 8 port, like $60 I can?t remember,
Because I do a little more crazy networking and stuff but you will only use 2 ports for this setup.)
-2 network cables 1 short one 1 as long as you need to reach your PS2
1) Just install Ethernet card/network card into your computer.
(Most computers that are cable/DSL ready have this in already.)
2) Enable internet connection sharing
3) Run a network cable from the network card in your computer to the hub/switch
(Short cable because you can just set your hub/switch on top of your tower like me)
4) Another network cable from the hub/switch to the PS2 network adaptor.
(I ran 50 footer into the basement from my entertainment room to the front den/computer room)
5) We had to put the IP address from my computer into the PS2 network adaptor because you are
Bouncing through the computer to get out to the internet. Once you get to find the
Internet/register it online, (the test to see if it works)
6) Then just logon to the network from the PS2 and then logon to SOCOM and play!
Now there are times, when you will lag a little just jump rooms till you
Find one that is running better. This depends on who is hosting and how far away they are ECT. ect.
For the best results play whither your time zone. I'm in Ohio so I always play in eastern rooms and
Do just fine. I don?t know but I think that your computer will help you out here too. I have a home
Made computer with a supped up, over clocked processor.
(Just adding this for the guy that will try to do this with a 286 or something lol)
That is all that I can remember. You might even be able to get away with letting the PS2
Network adaptor auto configure itself)
