Ok, so I am very frustrated because I have been playing an online game (FFXI) using my PS2 for quite a while now. I took a break from playing for about a week and when I tried to go online again using my PS2 I got an error saying that my PS2 could not access the DHCP server.
I tried searching online and have read info saying it might be a problem with a dynamic IP address and to change my router settings to use port-forwarding (I am using a Linksys EZXS55W router). However, I am unable to access my router through the suggested way. When I try typing http://192.168.1.1 into IE I get a message saying the page is unavailable. Also, I have been unable to figure out how to set a static IP address.
I am trying to access my router through my laptop which can access the internet using the same router that will not work for my PS2. My laptop shows the following for ipconfig/all
IP Address 126.96.36.199
Subnet Mask 255.255.252.0
Default Gateway 188.8.131.52
DHCP Server 184.108.40.206
Also, I have a cable modem with service through a university's resnet system.
Any help would be greatly appreciated because I really want to be able to get back on FFXI!!!
