is it a network slot

  Andy-2004 21:27 03 Jan 2004

sry a not a very technical question here. i have an rj-45 slot on the back of my motherboard, does that mean i can use lan with that or do i need a network card

If you have an RJ45 port, the chances are, your motherboard has on board LAN (Local Area Network). Your motherboard manual should tell you. If that is true, you do not need another card.

You may also find it has been disabled and you will have to enable it via the BIOS, but more about that if necessary, and again, instructions should be in the manual.

the reason i asked is because i am trying to set up a connection to my ps2(network adapter) but since im not connecting to another pc i can determin if the connection is workiing or not. when i set up all the info on the ps2 its does a diagnostic and dosent get passed the point of connection to network. i use usb based bt voyger modem) so my only choice other than spending moner on a router is to share internet from the pc.

Have you enabled Inernet connection sharing on your computer?

It appears from the link I gave you, your computer connects to the internet and shares the connection with your ps2 network adapter.

after you set up ics through wizard (add new connection in my network places).This will be a gateway for your ps2 adapter to get to there sight.You have to give your pc a network address in the class c range 192.x.x.x and give your ps2 one in the same range 192.x.x.x but make sure it is different,and tell the ps2 the GATEWAY address is the PC's address .Also you have to give the ps2 the addresses of your ISP DNS servers .You can get this through command promp and type ipconfig/all.Just doulble check if ICS uses a private address or ISP's public address not sure off hand.Someone here should be able to answer that quickly ...

hope this helps a bit
