Pardon if I come across as dumb, I'm not very up to snuff with my computers and such...but I'll try my best to explain: I have tried a number of things to get this to work. As of now, I have a USB device that uses Airport to get internet to my computer from yet another device across the house. On the PS2 end of things, I have an Ethernet cable plugged into the back of my PS2 Network adapter and then into my Mac mini. I have went to "System Preferences", to "Sharing" and have turned on sharing between my connection to airport and "built-in ethernet". I have then gone to "Network" and to "Network Status" to see that Airport: "Airport is connected to the network WLCM2. You are connected to the Internet via Airport" and that Built-in Ethernet: Built-in Ethernet is currently active. Built-in Ethernet has a self-assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet". The dot next to the Airport blurb is green, the one next to the Built-in Ethernet blurb is yellow. On the PS2 side, I am able to establish a connection while setting up the Network Configuration for Online Play...but when I actually try to use it I get an error message during the DNAS authentication process: "Network Error (-612) There was no response from the DNS server. Please check your network configuration". I have tried fiddling with manually changing the IP addresses on both the built-in ethernet on my mac mini as well as on the network configuration set-up page on the PS2. I don't have a clue what to do. Help would be greatly appreciated, preferably in layman's terms.
