Setting-Up a PlayStation®2 with a Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge

This article will give you instructions on how to set up PlayStation 2 to get online using the Linksys Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge.

NOTE:  Before trying to connect your Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge to a wireless network, take note of your SSID, Wireless Security and/or Network Key. To get these settings if you’re using a Linksys, click here. If you’re using a non-Linksys router and you do not have these settings, consult your wireless router’s user guide or contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Make sure that the PlayStation®2 works when wired to the router before proceeding. If you’re not using a Linksys router consult the user guide or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
