What internet connection are you using? What ISP? How do you get online with the PC?
Do you have any online PS2 games? Try them instead.
15. Is it true that some PS2 units have trouble working with the Network Adapter?
A very, very rare number of PlayStation 2's do not work with the Network Adaptor, especially considering that there are millions of North American PS2's out there. Here are the list of serial numbers:
3369556-3369651 3372352-3372651 3379084-3380151 3380260-3381867 3381976-3382083 3383152-3383691 3384652-3385191 3386152-3386907 3388192-3389271 3391084-3392055 3393868-3394407 3394516-3394731 3397192-3398055 3399868-3400947 3403192-3403839 3404692-3405339 3406192-3406515 3406624-3406839 3414661-3416388 3417661-3418740 3419173-3419280 3419821-3419928 3420661-3421308 3421417-3421524 3421633-3422064 3423661-3424848 3425161-3425268 3434377-3434592
To find the serial number, look onto the back of your console. If you have any of the numbers listed above, call SCEA technical support @ "1-800-345-SONY". Specials thanks goes out to Adam Smith (Atlanta, GA) for sending me this list so that I wouldn't have to type it out myself. :)
i have AOL cable..... so u dont think i need the start up disk? i have online enabled games...
Did you reset your cable modem after you completed the Sony disk installation and plugged the CAT5 cable in?
i cant even get the start up disk finished....i go to test the settings and it fails everytime...i reset the cable modem b4 i sarted to do ne thing. i cant even complete the instalation of the start up disk. it times out do to no connection. ive called MANY tech suports. I guess they say that AOL does not support online gaming for AOL CABLE but they do dial up and DSL. really weird i have tons of friends that have aol cable and play online every day and wut is a cat5 cable?

No you don't need the Start up disk.
Yours may be either too old? or a Bad disc, anyway.
Category 5 Cable is the ethernet cable you use to connect to the Cable modem. Its a wider version of a traditional Phone cable.
well i have an ethernet cable. but i thought u had to use the start up disk to get everything saved on your memory card? does anyone else npt use the start up disk?
PSPro2 PS2 online FAQ page ^ That's where I found out you don't need the network CD. I don't even own, a working PS2. :D
PlaystationPro2.com PS2 Online FAQ8. Do I have to put in the start-up disc every time I want to go online?
No, of course not. The settings are saved onto your memory card. If you lose your start-up disc, or if you bought a used network adaptor and it did not come with a start-up disc, do not worry. Every PS2 online game has its own network configuration wizard.
are you plugging the PS2 into a router, or right to the cable box?
right into the cable modem
