Ugh. I'm trying to set up my wireless receiver thing so I can play Madden online with my PS2. The model is a Linksys Wireless-B Game Adapter (Model No. WGA11B). I have it plugged in and everything, but when I go to setup, it says that the Wireless-B Game Adapter couldn't be found on the network. The rest of my wireless network consists of Netgear manufactured parts, but I don't think that should matter at all...any advice? In case it's important, the router I'm using is a Netgear MR814. I don't think it's a matter of signal strength either, since my PS2 is in the room next to the router. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you need the regular ethernet adapter for the PS2 installed to go with the wireless adapter? Just throwing ideas out there, I'm not really sure...

your in luck, i just installed that exact adaptor so I could play madden 2005 on my ps2. You need a wireless router for that adapter to work, but you said you have it so that is no problem. You need to have the PS2 adapter as well as the Linksys Game Adapter.

This needs to be screwed into the back of your PS2 like the picture - http://www.us.playstation.com/periphera ... SCPH-10281

If you do have the PS2 adapter already and it still didn't work, you might have forgotten to put in the CD for the Game Adapter. You need to follow the directions on the CD for your Linksys Game Adapter to work.



*Dont worry about what kind of router you have, it doesn't matter as long as its wireless.

I did all that...and when I try to set it up, it gives me a message saying that the "Wireless-B Game Adapter cannot be located on your network."

Ok, I figured that out (stupid mistake I was making).

Anyway I can find out my network password? I don't know it and need it to continue.

You forgot the router password?

Did you ever set it? If you didn't the username is admin and the password is password or 1234.

Otherwise you'll have to reset the router to factory defaults and lose all your info. :,-(

My dad set it up, I have no idea if he changed the password or not. I'll try those though.

Nope, didn't work. I'm sure my Dad wrote down the password, I'll have to look through his files ( :-o ) for it.

Found it!! :-D :-D

Great...when I enter it, it says "Connect Fail, Please Try Again."
