    Sharing internet connection evenly.

    I've now got my ADSL router set up and got my PC and my PS2 connected nicely. However my wife discovered that while I was playing a game on the PS2 the internet was barely usable on the PC.
    Our connection is 2.2Mbit which while not huge is surely more than enough for a game which will play on dialup. Perhaps it was just a coincidence but it seemed like the PS2 was hogging the connection. Is this likely and is there a way to prevent it?
    I'm sure even a 512K ADSL connection would be fine for the PS2...

    My nefew has an xbox and with his wireless connection and a hard cat5 through a wireless router there is no lag on either end.Maybe you can go wireless or there is some kind of booster out there to use?
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Check you have the latest firmware for your router. I read somewhere (can't remember where though) that some brands of router have a similar problem to yours and the manufacturers fixed it with a new firmware. Worth a try.
