    Wireless. I tried a hard connection and it wouldn't work. I actually had to log into to the isp on my laptop with a hard connection.

    I know I have to plug my PS2 directly into my Mac and then run my wireless connection. Most of the time I have no issues.

    I wouldn't count yourself out just yet. The fact you saw another player is key. Sounds like you were dealing with everyday XLink fuckery and could've prevailed had one or two of us been on around the same time to test it with you in real time. Also, NEVER forget about "switching orbs" sounds like that was your issue all along.

    Also, I need a new fuzzy wolf blanket from the PX there at Doha, fetch me one when you get back to Kuwait? And find where the ARMY stays and steal a mattress from them for me. I miss the A and S-POD some days...Semper

    Updated the guide to include the steps for manually imputing the IP in your PS2 network settings.

    Couple of things:
    - Make sure xlink is set to the TAP network driver.
    - For a testing disable all anti-virus and anti-spyware programs along with windows firewall and router firewalls.
    - Set the pcsx2 dev9 subnet to

    I think the problem is for the ps2 not pcsx2. At least I am assuming since this is the regular xlink thread.

    Yes it was slim ps2 I had both wired but games wouldn't show up so I had him try his wifi and plug the ps2 into his laptop and that worked so it stopped there lol. He isn't good with computers so I was trying to set it up for him. From where I am. I know a bit but I couldn't figure out why the games wouldn't show when both were wired.

    Glad you both are up and running. Don't forget sometimes you have to change "orbs" in the notification area (right click XLink icon in task tray) if your not seeing rooms. It will disconnect and reconnect and after signing in that usually remedies any other situation.

    Lately though for me, XLink just "works".

    i dont use the wifi method but make sure connection is bridged properly. also try to make sure router is config'd properly and if possible set the PC running xlink as the DMZ on your router

    You get your shit together and see a room yet or did you want to meet up to test your might? As dizee mentioned "bridging" might be needed, but I found success the day I stopped with that shit.

    I can't get the program to run properly. Or something. It doesn't open multiple sessions in the tray and never connects. Anyone else having issues? Gonna uninstall and try again, but whatevs I guess.

    I forgot that Thursday nights see some sort of maintenance some weeks. I couldn't POSSIBLY understand what it is they might be doing. Nothing ever seems to change but the orb names.

    Oh well.

    3 people on now. Lets hope for half dozen more at high noon, eh?
