PS2 OnLine play questions to already owners.

Q: PS2 OnLine play questions to already owners.


I am very interested to buy the network adaptor for the ps2 but have a few questions regarding it. I know I need broadband connection (512) which I do have, I need the network adaptor and ps2 ethernet cable and a memory card. The ethernet cable dpoes come with the network adaptor but the adsl modem is about 8 meters away from the ps2. Also i was wondering does the ethernet cable have to join into the modem because my modem only has one slot for a cable to go into and how else would it get a connection to a phone. I noticed on pictures of the network adaptor it has 2 slots can a ethernet cable from my computer go into one and a phone line into the other? i also have a mod chip and was wondering from people who have this network adaptor does it still work online?

Any help or advice for this would be greatly appreciated

thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: PS2 OnLine play questions to already owners.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I run Windows XP with P4 2.0 GHz and 256 of RAM, but when ever i play games online for a short time, my computer freezes. Also, when i play songs for say an hour or even less, the computer freezes. I don't know what is the problem. This happens at least twince in a day.

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Buddies, i really need help to solve this problem.

A:My Computer Freezes when i play game online or play music

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

I need to know how I can get my PS2 Slim online so I can play games online. The PS2 Slim has the Network Adapter built in, it's not like the old PS2s. I connected the ethernet cable to the back of my PS2 to one of the four ports on the back of my Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHz Broadband router. I made the network configuration, setting the IP address entry to auto and the DNS entry to auto. I finish, then test the connection. It's successful. However when I go to play online, my PS2 gets to the part where it says authenticating DNAS infromation, and say that the server may be down or the cable is disconnected and stuff like that, but the server isn't down and the cable is connected. Someone please help I've been trying for days.

A:My PS2 says it online, but I can't play online.

Ok I purchased the game "HEAD COACH" for the pc and whe nI try to play it online I can't.

Here is what I sent to EA Games:

I tried to coach online with this game when I click on login I get "Acct information not found" then when I click on Create new/Edit existing acct I get "unable to connect to ea servers. Please ensure you have an active connection to the interent. I do have an active connection. I then proceeded to the tech help where I ran the UOTRACE.exe program and once it was done running in the bottom left hand side of that program
I see "buffer too small" It ran through 13 hosts all but one was green. I had one black one. I am able to play other games online.

Here is EA'S Response:

Connection issues are usually due to the configuration of hardware or software firewalls. First, make sure that the required ports are open. You may
need to contact your internet service provider to ensure that the ports are open on their end as well. The required ports are:

• UDP 3658 (Standard Game Play).
• UDP 9500 (News Ticker).
• UDP 6000 (Voice Over IP [VOIP]).
• TCP 13505 (EA Messenger).
• TCP 31320 (Server Communication).
• TCP 80 (HTTP [Standard Internet]).
• TCP 443 (HTTPS [Secure Internet]).

Now I am able to play other online games with no issues such as Swat 4 & BF-2

I have absolutely NO clue as to go about checking to see if these ports are open or how to open them.

Hello, hopefully someone here can help me with my problem. Im having trouble playing Call of Duty 4 and Crysis online. Everytime I try to get into an online game it hangs (on the "Loading" on Crysis and on CoD4 is on the "Synchronizing Game Settings")

I can play other games online just fine,Steam, WoW, Team Fortress 2, World In Conflict. I can connect to my IM's and Firefox with no issues as well.

The only thing that the two share, are they are the only two games I have that run Punkbuster as their Anti-Cheat. I've read every FAQ, posted on the official game forums and I'm playing email tag with an Activision tech support guy at the moment.

I've tried almost everything and at this point I'll try just about anything. I've given admin rights to the programs, I've opened the ports, all my drivers are up to date (video/sound/mobo/network card.. you name it). Ive given exceptions in my Firewall. Im running out of options and running out of hair to pull out =(

Anyone else have this issue? Anything else I can try? Your help is greatly appreciated.


A:Can't play online. Need help bad.

Sounds like a monitor and resolution issue to me.
Try to set the hertz to 60 in the resolution youre playing.

I have windows vista ultimate.
I only have the windows firewall.
On the 10th of january there where some windows updates and ''my monitor died'' just giving all the details.
Since the 10th of january i have not been able to play any games online, i play Rappelz most of the time, it starts up fine but when i get to the login screen my internet drops out.
To make sure that there wasnt just a problem with just one gane i installed Halo, it installed just fine but when it went to update the same thing happened.
I have tried all i can think of to fix the problem but i am still unable to play online.

*Things i have tried*
1. Replaced my lcd with a crt.
2. Uninstalled the updates.
3. Did a system restore.
4. Reformated vista.
5. Reformated to XP home.
6. Reformated to vista and didnt install updates.

^^^ none of these things worked ^^^

As a result of my problems i have come to the conculsion that i have a 5000 dollar paper weight.

Please help me to get back to the things i enjoy doing......playing games.

A:Cant play online

By "internet drops out" i assume that it works fine when surfing ect. Also does the connection drop entirely when you try to play online, so you can't surf either or does it just stall?

*Things you SHOULD try*
7. Reboot the router
8. Check the NAT/port forwarding on the router
9. Ping the online servers you wish to play on (if an adress or IP is available)
10. Kick the dog

How good is Comodo online backup? Anyone have experience with this program?
Is this unlimited storage?

Thanks for the help.

A:Comodo online backup questions

The Comodo backup program comes with no online storage as standard; if you want to backup online you'll need to have access to an FTP server or subscribe to the Comodo Online Storage service here.

Adrive offers 50gb of free online storage, but you have to pay if you want to connect via ftp. Fabrik offer 2gb free with no limitations; useful for backing up email and smaller documents.

I take classes on line. I have to log into the class site to get to the library portal site. The error comes when I try to log in on the library site, it request for me to put in my username and password again. When I do this, the site give an error. so I refresh and have to put in username and password again. Then site gives and error. On the third attempt, I refresh and the site takes me striaght to the library to utilize whatever I need to do. Why are their so many request for username and password when I do not need them to get on the portal? What I have learned is if I refresh a couple times the site goes directly to the library access for me to utilize.

Second question, when using the school site, sometimes when I press the icon to link to different browsers, fb, twitter, google, the displayed contents are blocked and the pictures do not show up, only some words on the sides.

stupid question, but is that on your computer, or every computer you try login with?

I'm not sure if this is a Windows problem and I should be in that forum, or here in the "games" forum, but I'll ask anyway and maybe someone out there can help.

We used to enjoy playing online games and all of a sudden we couldn't view the games anymore. One site sends an error message that there was a java error and other sites such as Iwon just download a blank screen. Sounds like I'm missing an application on my pc, but no clue as to which one or how to get things back to normal.

I hope someone can help......

There has been an issue where SUN sued Microsoft for modifying the original code (or something like that) of Java to make their own one. Most sites now will work only with the original Java from SUN. You can download it here.

Certain videos I try to view online won't play, they're just a black space where the video is supposed to be. It seems to be mostly on news sites. Youtube and others play ok. This problem is the same as the link below, but the thread is closed and there wasn't a solution posted. I use Chrome, but it does the same thing in IE9 and FF. Thanks in advance for your help.


A:Some videos online won't play.

Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. You could try a different media player although the Windows one shouldn't have problems on a website, only with certain pre-made videos (codex situation).

A:Can't play any online games

Someone on another site mentioned this:
Are either of you using NVidia onboard lan connections?

If so, have you disabled the now infamous checksum offloading?"

No idea how to checkf or this but that might help? I don't know.

One more thing:

It has these alienware programs too which might be doing something:

Alien Command Center
AlienFX Controller


I installed the game Rift and it plays as it should. I don't know why this is different than the previously stated programs, but apparently it is. Those programs still can't connect.

Also, I ran safe mode with networking and they couldn't connect in that either. At least, steam and wizard101 couldn't. DC Universe Online couldn't run withought the graphics card.

Anyone have any idea at all? I'm soooo bummed right now.

For some reason i cant play any steam games while an internet connection is active when i click on I.E. counter strike it tells me the game is unavailable and then norton internet security pops up with two attacking trojan horse virus's that change names everytime from ~16.tmp to whatever it wants later on. Norton says it cannot repair the file because access to the file is denied well if i go to the location of the file i dont see it but its says its in my temp folder so i just clean it out. Thats when i find a couple of wierd files that also change names from time to time and can only be deleted when i disconnect my router. They go along the lines of ~DF5BD3.tmp and there is always at least two of these files. I have tried everything and i mean everything. I have two computers on a network and it does it to both. They run over my linksys router so i even went as far as formating both computers and reinstalling everything. The problem is still happening. After the formats i tried plugging my cable modem directly into the computer to see if it might have been a problem with the router but it did nothing. So finally I googled the file names that norton finds and i scrounged around the forums becuase thats what google pulled up. I ran every program that you guys told others to run and i got nothing.

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Event viewer (local) and look for the critical errors listed in the last day, week, etc. Then go to the windows log>application tab. Finally the windows Logs>system tabs.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Hey, I browsed briefly through the other threads so if this was already answered forgive me

Starcraft is my game of choice, and recently I have just got a new computer with wireless internet. However, for the last 3-4 years there has been an ongoing debate within my family on who is the better Starcraft player.

Today I was going to purchase another copy of Starcraft to install on my computer. There is a wireless network through my house. Before I made my purchase I wanted to check if I would be able to play with/agaisnt my brothers using two different computers hooked up to the same internet connection.

Thanks in advance.

A:Can same IP play games together online?

You will be able to play over the network. When you go into multiplayer go in to the tcp/ip one I think(someone correct me if I am wrong) and you will be able to play as if you were hard wired together. Me and my brother play games against each other over our wireless all the time. Also, Starcraft doesn't require different cd keys if you are playing over a LAN so you should be able to just burn the copy you have and use the same cd key.

It seems sometimes that other programs won't start. When I decide to reboot. A program closing window comes up that is the "media event sink window". Does that have something to do with it? Would you like my Hjk log or do you know what's going on.

Ok so sometimes I can play Battefield 2 just fine online but the inconsistency of my signal I believe to be a problem. I get randomly booted from games for my ping dropping out way too often. About 1 out of every 4 games, and its always random when I get booted.

Wiring up is not a solution, I am about 100 feet+ away from the router in the house if I had to use a cord. I am only 15-25 feet away from the router in reality using a straight line through the walls... My signal is always Excellent and I check my speed online and it always is around 23 mb/s.

How can I get a more consistent signal? Nothing I have tried has worked so far...

Thanks for your help

Setting a static ip on your computer should not be a problem but did you set it as the same ip family of your router's ip. EG: if your router is your ip should be 192.168.1.XXX/ (xxx = any number from 1 to 254 excluding your router's ip) and your gateway should be pointing to your routers ip and DNS set to your isp or you can even set it as your routers' ip

A friend has a Fujitsu Siemens desktop running fully updated XP3.

Audio CDs play well using Media Player but any kind of online sound isn't produced, including tracks from YouTube or soundtracks which play in the background on some PPS slideshows that do the rounds.

I've looked in Device Manager and nothing is flagged and all devices are reported as working normally.

Could someone prompt me as to where to look next please?

Thank you

Lets try a general cleanup first

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

For this, go here and get the Spider:


Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware


Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Also, what is the full error message that you're getting, and when do you get it? On logging in, or playing a game.. etc?

C&C Generals works fine for offline play, and never crashes, but when I try to play online, it gives me an error. It says that 65544_65536_english.rtp is missing.

I have looked around for a solution and checked for updates and patches (when it says the file is missing, it offers to download it, but this doesn't work) and I managed to find the file to download it, but I have no idea where to put it in order for it to work.

As I said, the offline play is fine and I managed to play online without any problems on may old PC. Can anyone help?

In the last few months I've noticed a problem with the screen picture quality when playing DVDs or watching online TV. The picture is very dark and no amount of tweaking the Viewsonic E75 Monitor view controls helped. I went to pcpitstop and their tests noted poor video graphics (see specs below). Dell has no newer graphics drivers for my os; VS monitor driver has never installed correctly so I've always used Plug and Play. Using third party software I have tested my pc and got no notable problems on the video graphics card (non-pci) and the controller checks out too. Any ideas on what may be causing the poor visuals? Should/can I upgrade the vid card? Any input is appreciated.

Hi. Yesterday, I got 2 Blue Screens in my Windows 7 Home Premium. I have an HP Envy laptop. I had updated my video driver (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850) earlier in the day (although I experienced similar Blue Screens with my old video driver version too...the old one was also the Mobility Radeon HD 5850, just an earlier version). I was trying to watch an online video in Internet Explorer 8, and I got a Blue Screen. So I had to do a manual shutdown. When it started up again, I chose for Windows to check online for a solution to the problem (but Windows never got back to me with one, if it found it). Later on, when trying to watch a YouTube video, the same Blue Screen appeared, and once again I had to do a manual shutdown. It may be related to my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850, maybe even other things which I can't be sure of...also, I mentioned that I got similar BSODs with my old video driver version too. At that time, I'm pretty sure I was using Firefox instead of IE when trying to watch the online videos. By the way, I was able to watch several Youtube videos normally yesterday, but on one occassion I did get that BSOD. Also, here is what at least part of the BSOD said (on both occassions yesterday): "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed." Please help..thanks.
