Default Urgent Help With PS2 Network Adapter Wanted!

sponsored links

Hi all,
I have read all of the network adapter topics, searched the board and read the ps2 faq (new and old). My problem is with the official sony ps2 network adapter.

I am based in the UK and have ntl as my isp, and am using ntlworld 128k cable broadband with their silver cable modm. I have a V4 (GT pack) messiah chipped PS2 and a ntsc network adapter and start up disc.

I used to have a dial up connection and managed to set it up perfectly with the adapter and could play games online. I had been using that connection up until recently when i changed to broadband, and now i cant set it up

Ive tried automatic configurations, with and without my username/pass, manually setting up the configuration (which says i am connected, but doesnt send the registration deatils, or go online again!) I have tried everything i can think of, and am now wanting advice from the board.

could u plz explain;

1. DHCP, what is it and where can i find it on my PC/cable modem?
2. Where can i find out my DHCP host name??
3. Is the netmask the same as my subnet mask??
4. Default router address, where can i find it and what is it??

If u live in the uk and have ntl broadband could u plz lmk how u managed to do it cos its really annoying me. I am linking the network adapter to my cable modem using an ethernet wire, is that correct?? I am trying to play games like TMB:Online, THPS3, Auto Modellista (JAP) and Capcom vs snk 2 (JAP), and all of them will not connect 2 play


if u think u know the solution or need more info then plz email me @ [email][/email] plz!!!!

all i can come up with is this;

Address Type: Assigned By DHCP
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
Physical Address:
DHCP Server:
DNS Servers:

so i cant find out the DHCP Server hostname (only the number which i cant input because of the ..... in it) and i also cant find the default router address which is needed for setup!

I am in need of some serious help!!!

try deleting your old file off of the memory card and let it create a new configuration file with your start up disc.

ussally, many cable internet provider don't need the domain/host name........

but if you do need it, you can call up your internet provider and ask them... (that's why my linksys router manual tell me to do, lol )
