Hey everyone.
I have the ps2 and i can't find my online - thingy.
So I'm going to buy a new one, but I don't know what all I need to buy.
So can you help me?
Thanks :wave:

Do you have the owners manual and such? Usually there's a list of components that comes with any electronic device so that you can purchase replacement parts or upgrades.

Without seeing your PS2, I'd say you need:

Online Adapter.

You may also want to consider:

Network adapter (for broadband and dial-up internet connections)

Is there any difference between the new silm ps2 and the old fat ps2? (I have the older one) I am not sure what it is, but it has a antenna and shows me what channels I can go on, is that the Online Adapter?

TBH I don't know. I don't have a PS2 (though 2 of my Brothers own that and the PS3).

I just used google to find the links for the parts I thought you might need. :wink02:

I'd venture to guess (based on how Sony has worked the Playstation series) is that for connection purposes, there's not going to be a difference.

Your best bet is to contact someone at Sony or go to a used gamer store and ask a clerk. You'll likely get a perfectly good part at a perfectly good (i.e. cheap) price.
