How to change IP address of PS2 on network?
How to change IP address of PS2 on network? –
I need help changing my the IP addy of my PS2 on the network. right now I can only communicate PC to PS2 is by going to network connections and changing the properties of TCP/IP to 192.168.0.1.
When I do this, I can no longer browse the internet. Is there a way to change the IP address on my PS2 so that I can work PC to PS2 + continue browsing the net?
setup your router to assign your ps2 a specific ip based on its mac?
It doesn't works this way. What you are talking about is probably binding an IP address to a MAC address via a DHCP server, but to do so you need to run on the PS2 a DHCP client.

actually that works fine for games and software that doesnt use IPCONFIG.DAT

The missing link is a DHCP client on PS2. From what i'm aware of, PS2 firmware lacks a DHCP client, but feel free to correct me if i'm wrong.

P.S. To be clear, it could be done without DHCP with multicast DNS service discovery, but it's not what we're talking about here.
