    damn, this might sound stupid, but i have no idea how to connect my PS2 to my computer with my router. Its not a wireless router. if someone would like to help me out over MSN my email is mk_gino89@hotmail.com..the only way i know how to play online for other games is take the cat 5 cord out of the back of my pc and plugging it in directly to the PS2. But once i do that i lose my internet connection to my pc.

    This is wierd... I have a network adapter and everything correctly installed on my PS2, but I have no MAC address... I have played other games online before, and I just tried setting up x link today, and i find out that I have no MAC Address, like, it doesnt even say MAC Address in the "Version" section...

    if you would search... i posted a working link to it in the 6th page, which is the one before this one. PLEASE search through the full thread before posting that you cannot find something, as it has probably already been addressed.

    I found my MAC address by doing Automatic setting, which already detects my ps2 by Kai, it shows "Configure successful" and they show my MAC address. So I guess that's the only way for older version of PS2.

    I'll just re-enter my whole problem, I can't find the PS2 except when i unlock my NIC. My connection works fine between PC and PS2, can play online games on my PS2 :). I use a PS2 slim and a PC with double NICs.

    Oh and when i close my DHCP in the Administration Tools my internet connection gives up. Start it again and i'm back in business... i tried the autosetting in GT4 and the DHCP, but i didn't get any netmask so i tried 255.255.255.0, the same as IP and some other... still don't find PS2 :(

    Please help me :p

    Using 2 NIC supposely will be easier. I think the IP setup between the PS2 and your PC is not correct. Just my opinion....

    This is the IP setting that i've been used to connect my PS2 to the NIC.

    I'm sorry if this is not right. It is to show my setting that have been work for months.

    p/s: Sorry for the lousy drawing.

    can someone please tell me how to find the net-values, all that ip spooler gives you is a new IP address

    I cant get this to work. I set everything up like posted, but all I get is the "Waiting for Connection" screen on the PS2. It never actually connects to anything. :guilty:

    im going to go out on a limb here and say that you either didnt join the gt4 americas arena, or if you did you didnt join a room and follow the hosts instructions.

    What do I enter in "netmask"? The IP address again or do I leave it blank?

    if you would have read the whole article, you would have seen what was said about the netmask values.
    im not going to tell you what to put there when the article clearly tells you what you need to do.
    you NEED TO READ THE WHOLE TUTORIAL, not just look at the pictures.:grumpy:

    When doing this I am given a single set of numbers, my IP address, no "Sub-net values" are displayed. I DID read the entire article, I dont see why you cant just help me out with this little bit, the rest of the write-up is awesome.

    I dont know what to enter there since I have not been given a sub-net value, unless it is the same number as the IP. That is what I am asking.


    When trying to connect to a game, the other people are saying they cant read my ping. My windows firewall is off when trying to connect. The only other thing I could think of is my router, if it has a built in firewall I have no clue how to turn it off...
