I live in a small community mainly composed of backwood individuals and cannot find any local shops that have or carry PL-2301 Cables. I was wondering if i could use my DSL router which i currently have accessing via Ethernet port. Can i leave this intact and use the USB Connection on the Router to hook up to the PS2 and do my Bios transfermation with the Router.. Im not very keen on networking as per im more in the programming section of the food chain. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

if you can establish a viable network connection through the router, the only thing you would need to do is to be able to run biosdump.elf on the ps2, (which is a whole ordeal in itself if you aren't familiar with it)..

Ive read "The Guide" and visited many many sites and feel comfortable with what to do when the time comes... my delima is establishing the connection thru the router. Every time i try i dont think i get my addresses correct when using the link programs.That or im unsure if i need to designate an established port thru the router...(damn i should of taken that networking class) Mabey i can call my dsl supplier for that question ...

Chances are that in order to use your router through a usb port on a pc, certain drivers have to be installed from most likely a pack-in CD. If that's the case, then more than likely, you'll have to hook your PS2 in with a broadband adaptor for the system. It's unlikely that ANYTHING could be run through the usb ports on a ps2 unless there is software (like a game) telling the PS2 how to use the device that's connected.
