    that black box from Roadrunner is a Cable modem. You need an inexpensive Router
    and it would be installed (by you) like this:
    Code:
    modem---router---your PS2 and Computer(s)

    jobeard has the solution. Error 612 is telling you a DLC (802.2) command TRANSMIT_TEST_CMD (11H) failed with error TRANSMIT_ERROR (23H).

    or
    An error code which is not explicitly handled by Host Integration Server has been returned by the DLC driver.

    Which means you are not connected.
