Are you connecting the USB modem directly to the PS2? I've not heard of that being done before, so I'm not sure if it would work to be honest.

What most people with a USB modem do is connect the modem to a PC, and then use Internet Connection Sharing, and run an ethernet cable from the PC to the PS2. Alternatively you could buy an ethernet router.

If you're using the new (slim) PS2, it already has an ethernet port so that's easy enough. Otherwise you need to buy the broadband (ethernet) adaptor, which goes into the expansion bay.

You might have to change some of the PS2's settings, such as DNS servers. The BT servers probably only work while you're connected through their ADSL service - instead you should use PlusNet's (212.159.6.9, 212.159.6.10).

Take a look at the PlayStation 2 Connection Guide for more information.

Hi,

I haven't had anything through MSN yet - might be worth re-adding me.

So you've put in both of the DNS addresses I mentioned? Does the PS2 software give any kind of error?

Have you double checked the Internet Connection Sharing (I assume that's what you're using?) setup? Maybe worth deleting and readding that connection. Also it might be worth disabling firewall software (including Windows firewall) temporarily for the sake of testing.

Have you completely removed all connection settings on the PS2 (I think you can do that..maybe have to go into the memory card and erase it from there), and then re-setup the PlayStation's settings following the PlusNet connection guide I posted earlier?
