Turn the PS2 and broadband router off. 2. Connect the first Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port on the broadband router and the Ethernet port on the PS2 Network Adapter. 3.

Turn on your PS2 and insert the Network Access Disc. 7. Follow the on-screen setup instructions. Refer to the Network Access Disc manual for further support.

    As far as I'm aware mine worked as simple as 'plug & play' I didn't have to open any ports. Try Playstation support forums

    Firewalls won't neither will NAT. The only issue that comes to mind is DHCP but I doubt that's it. That becomes an issue with my DSLite. Give the forums a go
