same problem as soapdude... –
I have the same problem as soapdude. I already modded my ps2 on my own using the independence exploit and I use HDLoader 0.8c I have 2 ethernet ports (one built in on the Mobo which I use for internet access, and the other is on my NIC card which was unused until I decided to mod my PS2) in my PC. I have my phat PS2 connected to my PC via PS2 network adapter to the NIC card. I went to network connections on windows XP and it's saying "network cable unplugged".
I KNOW that the NIC card is working, I tested it by connecting my cable modem to it and my internet was working fine. I just want to be able to copy ISO's from my PC to the PS2 HDD. Since I'm using HDLoader 0.8c I know I have to use HDL_Dump/Dumb with HDLD_svr. I've been reading tutorials I've found across the net (ie: the "advanced PS2 networking tutorial" on exploitstation.com) and none of them seem to tell me what I exactly need to know. If anyone can help out with advice or can direct me to a detailed tutorial it would be greatly appreciated.
Update: OK! I confirmed I don't have a crossover cable, but I found a crossover adapter! Will That work? And if it will work, am I required to have the adapter plugged into the PS2 network adapter or my NIC card in my PC?
