To stop the million threads on setting up your PS2 here we go with a simple guide What you will need * Network Adapter (The Slimline PS2 has this built in already.) * Network Access Disc (This comes with both the Slimline PS2 and the network adapter.) Note: You don't need the network access disk to play pes 5 online. It has the network configuration built in. Other games might still need it though. * Broadband Connection (Either ADSL or Cable.) * Ethernet cable * Ethernet Modem. For the Ethernet modem, make sure you pick the correct one for your connection because an ADSL one, will not work with a Cable one. If you or someone else in your household, is going to be using the online capabilities of a PC while your gaming online with your PS2, you will need to buy a router too but most routers have a built in modem so this should not be a problem. Getting Your Playstation 2 Online 1: The first thing you need to do is to put your network adapter into your PS2 (this can be skipped for Slimline owners.) To do this you can find out by reading the manual that comes with the network adapter but it's simply a case of taking out the piece of plastic labelled expansion bay at the back of your PS2 and fitting in the network adapter. 2: The next thing to do is to stick in your internet connection, to do this you simply connect your Ethernet Modem/Router to your PS2, to do this you use the Ethernet Cable and place it into the Ethernet (RJ45) socket on your network adapter. 3: The next thing to do is switch your PS2 on and insert the Network Access Disc which came with the Network Adapter/Slimline Console. Once this is loaded you will be taken to the main menu and given two options, 1: Get Connected and 2: Central station. For the purpose of this guide, i shall only talk about Option 1, so please go there. 4: On this option you have more choices, the first one is a video which takes you through the process of getting your PS2 and the second option is setup which lets you configure the details (please make sure you have your memory card in your PS2 as the details gets saved there.) There is also an Advanced setup mode but i have decided not to include this as my main intentions is to try and keep this guide as simplified as possible. 5: Now go to the setup option and the Network Access Disc should automatically configure everything for you, sometimes it will be missing information due to your isp not being recognised, if this happends you will need to give it further information but all of this can easily be obtained from your ISP and their tech support staff should be able to assist you with any problems you have. 6: Now you should be all setup and online ready for PES5 but you will also want to register a game handle, to do this goto www.ps2registration.com and follow the steps there and you are good to go. How do I setup Internet Connection Sharing? To do this is simple, go to start menu > connect to > Choose your internet connection used > advanced tab> Check the option which says allow other network users to connect to the internet through this computer. Once you have done that, it's simply a case of putting one end of your crossover cable to your pc and the other to your ps2.
