faplink problems on memory card
faplink problems on memory card –
k I'm having troubles getting faplink to recognize where the ipconfig.dat file is. i'm not sure where to put this file on the memory card or how the ipconfig.dat file is setup. Is it like this 192.168.81.2 255.255.255.0 192.168.2.1. It keeps going to the default config and can't find the ipconfig.dat file.

I'm not sure about faplink, but most PS2 networking programs want to find "IPCONFIG.DAT" either in 'their own' folder, or in "mc0:/SYS-CONF/". The content of that file should be a single text line with info similar to what you wrote, EXCEPT that the IP addresses you wrote are illegal.

The 2nd string, "255.255.255.0", means that all network addresses on this subnet must have identical values for the first three numbers, and may differ only in the fourth number. But you used the following two addresses:
1st string: "192.168.81.2" to be used as main IP for PS2
3rd string: "192.168.2.1" for use as 'gateway' (either your PC or a router)
Those two addresses do not fit the same subnet, as they differ in both the third and the fourth numbers. You need to use different addresses, or widen your subnet, so that both addresses fit the same subnet. One easy way to do this is to zero the third number of the netmask, so you use this line:
192.168.81.2 255.255.0.0 192.168.2.1
However, remember to check the IP settings on your PC and/or router too, as each node must agree on the subnet specs.
Btw: Unnecessary bumping of threads is a 'good' way to get in trouble with the moderators here . But I'm not one of them, so this is just a friendly warning to avoid such things in the future .
