Connecting a Playstation 2 to an Airport: anybody done it? - Mac Networking

Hi, Just got a network adapter for the PS2, along with a D-Link wireless bridge (DWL-810+) and I'm trying to connect it to my Airport network. Not having much success--by all indications there is a signal being received by the unit but I get a message that the connection has failed. Don't really know what to do next; it would be great to hear if anyone has set up a PS2 this way... the PS2 NGs are full of little kids with PCs who are absolutely no help! thanks, Marcus...

    Default Connecting a Playstation 2 to an Airport: anybody done it?

    Hi,

    Just got a network adapter for the PS2, along with a D-Link wireless
    bridge (DWL-810+) and I'm trying to connect it to my Airport network.
    Not having much success--by all indications there is a signal being
    received by the unit but I get a message that the connection has failed.
    Don't really know what to do next; it would be great to hear if anyone
    has set up a PS2 this way... the PS2 NGs are full of little kids with
    PCs who are absolutely no help!

    thanks,

    I've done something similar, but different enough that it might not be any
    help :-(

    I don't have an Airport basestation, instead I have a LinkSys BEFW11S4
    which serves the same purpose. And I connect my PS2 via cat5 to the
    ethernet port of my Airport equiped iBook, not a wireless bridge. I use
    Internet connection sharing in OS X, and let the PS2 network setup default
    to automatic everything (my machines all use DHCP provided by the wireless
    router). Perhaps you could try something similar to ensure that you're not
    being thwarted by the PS2 software?

    uk.games.video.playstation is the best of the bunch. You could try there.
