I just got the router configured to run with my CPU. I've been playing madden online now for about a week and a half. When I ran the ethernet cable from the router to the PS2 it didn't work telling me that my connection test failed(using the start up disk) How do I correct this?

I had the same setup. I don't know if it's really worth running it through a router. The reason why I say that is because, when i first did mine (Madden 2003) it worked the game would freeze for a second or two every ten seconds. I havent tried it since then. I might give it a go when I get home. You probably already ran the cable from the modem to the ps2 with success already. Try switching the cables around (plug the ps2 into the cable that you have the computer plugged into) to see if that works. But if you have connectivity from the modem straight to the ps2. You should have no problem going through the router. But like I said you might not get the best performance going through the router.

Using a router is the way to go. What you need to do is configure the router so that it allows what ever game you're playing to have full access to the web.
I don't remember the ports you need to open, but when you log onto madden, just go to news (i think, if its not news its one of those selections), and close to the bottoms, they tell you which ports you need to open. Write those down, log off, and hook up your router. IF you don't know how to configure your router, call the company that makes that router and they'll walk you through it. Everyone's gaming online these days so they'll know exactly how to hook you up when you call.
Good luck man...
