PS2, Go-Net Adaptor, LinkSys and the Internet


Are you trying to get a Go-Net Adaptor to work with your PlayStation 2? Here's a recent question I had on the topic, and the solution.

QUESTION:

Hi lisa, i have purchased an installed a lynksis wireless router and a wireless receiver to hook up my ps 2 for online gaming. i had a go-net adaptor that should work with the ps2 but not sure how i hook it up with the wireless receiver. does it daisy chain into the go net adaptor and then connect go net to computer - i'm stuck and a bit frustrated can u help

ANSWER:

I don't know what a go-net adaptor is, but let's assume it's a normal PS2 adaptor that sticks onto the back of the PS2 and has a network port in it.

All you then is connect the Linksys wireless router to your cable modem. That has the Linksys now broadcasting the internet signal out into your home. For your PS2 to hear the signal, you plug the Linksys wireless receiver into the go-net adaptor's network port. The go-net is of course plugged into your PS2.

This has NOTHING to do with any of this being near your computer. The go-net is a "translator" that allows your PS2 to speak Internet Speak. The Linksys receiver allows that signal to fly through the air to your router. The router connects your home to the internet outside. There's no computer involved in this.

If you get your COMPUTER its own connection to your router, that's your choice. But it goes in to a separate router port.
