Can anyone help me? I'm having trouble connecting my ps2 slimline direct to my BT Home Hub. The ps2 error message says that there are no cables connected, but I know the cable is ok, Sony have checked out the ps2 and it is ok too, BT tech suppot aren't much help when you eventually get through.

Make sure you're using the right cable - straight or crossover. This can sometimes vary, so if you have a straight swap it for a crossover cable and see if it connects then. To tell if it's straight or crossover, look at the coloured wires on both ends. If the colours are in the same order on both ends then it's straight, if a couple are swapped over then it's a crossover cable.

It would appear that the problem stems from a faulty enet connection on hub.
