Default Connecting my PS2

Hey everyone, I was wondering if it is possible to connect a router to a router (basically) i have a modem connected to a wireless router connected directly to this computer via cable and i have another computer wireles.. now my question is.. can i have another router in my house by my PS2 and it will get internet?


like this..






because my playstation is in a spot where there is almost no way to connect a cable to it other than a router nearby or a cable through the attic and i would like to keep this computer hardwire.. thanks.

I'm pretty sure you can. But hey if not, you can always buy whats needed to get the PS2 wireless.

Bid while it's cheap. Only 10 for item, 10 for shipping.. Do some choirs get some money. I'm sure they'll understand your trying to make life for them easier.

I don't see a problem with it, it should work.

Its not that there two different brands, the setup you want it:
Router to the internet, with the ethernet or wireless going to 1-3 computers. Then on another ethernet port you want a cat5 cable which IS NOT a crossover.
Then as long as you have your internet setup correctly to the ps2 will be able to contact the internet. make sure that your router doesnt have a built in firewall which is on becuase it might not let the playstation 2 through.
