Question PS2 Network Adapter w/ cable modem

sponsored links

Can anyone help me? I have optimum online cable modem and the PS2 NA. The back of the modem has ethenet jack and usb, I have usb to my pc and I use ethernet for PS2 NA. My problem is my ethernet cord isn't long enough to leave hooked up permanent, so when I hook up my PS2 NA to my cable modem I can't get online unless I reset the modem. Also if if I leave the ethernet cord in I can't connect with my pc unless I reset the modem. Does this mean I need a router to hook both my pc & PS2 at the same time? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Search the board first & post where ppl talk about it,thanks:
Network Adapter Topics:

Also, other notes from the net:
For $40 you might still want to choose the official Network
Adaptor,for the following reasons:
1. You get a coupon to mail in for a free copy of Twisted Metal:
Black Online.
2. Although most of the currently available games support USB
Ethernet adapters, future games might only support the official Sony
Network Adaptor. Additionally:
From the net:
"I have a cable Internet connection, and my ISP uses dynamic IP addressing. I
am using a Linksys Etherfast cable/DSL router (4 ports). Nevertheless, when
I tried automatic settings on the start-up disk, it wouldn't work. So I
tried manual settings--inputing subnet mask info, primary and secondary DNS
info and the like. It still didn't work. It appeared to work, giving me a
congratulations message and saving the settings, but I was never able to
connect after that, and my registration info was never sent to Sony.
I contact my ISP, and was told I didn't need to use a DHCP host name. At the
same time, a friend of mine suggested that I not input a user ID. So, I once
again used the start-up disk, went for automatic settings, but this time I
did NOT enter my user ID. And voila!
I guess I was confused, thinking that I had to enter the user ID I use to
get on-line in the first place, when instead it was asking for a router/DHCP
ID which was not necessary (?). For whatever reason, answering "NO" when
asked if my ISP required a user ID allowed me to complete the set-up
