first off you need a cable or dsl line to connect to the net, the PS2 will not work over a standard 56k. Further you need to also have either purchased the broadband adaptor for this system or of had purchased the revised PS2 with broadband adapter included. If you have both of these things then you just need to read the instuction manule,

You wouldn't want to play on a 56k. The latency (ping) would be horrible, it'd be as much fun as a 5 fps game.

It can be done, though.

The Network adapter comes with a video on how to do it.. very simple.

I did a search and Dj is right, though your choice of games is more limited with such a connection. This is what my search reaped.

If I could read it I would answer all questions as I have connected several PS2's to the internet via phone line and broad band network connections. Rephrase your question in English.

I think this is what he says:

1)How do I connect the phone line to my PS2?

2)Where is the relavent connection?

3)How much are they?

I think he has a game with network play too.

I can't wait to get another PS2 game with Online Gaming capabilities. Got my Network Adaptor for $19.98 @ Walmart. Original price is around $40.

As for your connection to the internet. You do probably want to get a broadband service in order for you play a greater variety of games online.

Just plug it in, and read the manual the came with your Network Adaptor. It fits in the back of your PS2.
