As to my other question, does anybody on here play with a headset? Does anybody have an off-brand online adpater? An easy one, how many USB ports does the PS2 have?

OK, I saw the GoNet one for sale. I heard that it doesn't work for all games, is this true? If so, what games does it not work with? Any good ones?

I heard that all the games that you need the startup disk to play don't work. I guess that makes sense since it doesn't come with the sony start-up disk. I think I will just save the $30 and get a Linksys or GoNet one.

Anther question, my TV is a little ways away from my router and I don't have a fifty foot long Ethernet cable. I have a long phone cord though, is there any way I ca hook it up like that? I am not real familiar with this stuff as you can see.

Yea, you can use a phone cord, but only if you're internet access is thru a phone modem. If you're running cable, it won't work. Even then, 56K is a very slow speed, and you're not gonna have much fun playing online. If you have roadrunner or some other cable internet, I reccommend getting wireless receivers for your PS2. Nyko Wireless net extenders run for about $99...kinda costly. But other than finding a 50 foot ethernet cord, they are pretty much your best bet.

I think I might have a solution, I can move the TV into the same room I have the router in. I have Bellsouth DSL so it isn't 56k. It isn't as fast as cable but it isn't as slow as dial-up. I will still need maybe a 10 foot cord but it still will be cheaper than buying a wireless plug.
