    did you install IPX? some games use it. I don't know it the new one's do or not though

    windows key + E
    right click on My Network Place. Go to Properties
    right click on Local Area Connection Go to properties
    check if there is anything that says something like NWLink IPX/SPX/........
    if not go to install and look for it under protocol

    Connecting 2 PS2's on Different Monitors

    Hi all, just wondering if anyone cna tell me how to go about connecting up 2 PS2's to 2 monitors? I'm playing Medal of Honor Rising Sun with a friend against each other and it gives you the split screen so you can see what the other person sees. So I'm wanting to get a set up whereby I can have my own monitor and my friend has his monitor so each of us can't see what the other person sees. We're NOT playing over the 'net we'll both be in the same room. Any site's or links you can post me to?
    Thanks heaps people!
    Lyndon
