Guys! I don't have an extra ethernet port on the PC. I use a router for all my connected devices. We have DirecTV. We have a 360 and we have a PS3 all connected to the router.
I went the direct connection between PC & PS2 back a few years ago. We didn't have all these other devices. I used a straight connection. It's not that way now. I have other devices connected for usage on the internet. I'm not pulling the plugs just to have a direct connection to PC. I'd have to go back and forth. Not gonna happen!
I'm gonna try the methods mentioned a few posts back and see what happens. Thanks guys & I'll report back soon!
Edit: Well, I tried the method from Jawso below:
Didn't work! Connection attempt failed.
Here's what I used:
Default Router: 192.168.1.101
Primary DNS: 184.108.40.206
Secondary DNS: same as Primary DNS
BTW, do I need to enable UPnP and what's the MTU settings? Thanks! I used ipconfig from PC to check the router IP in use. It's 192.168.0.13 so I changed the router IP from the PS3 to match. Still didn't work for my connection.
