Edited: Fix found, see below. Thanks a bunch!
So, after waiting on someone to send me a PS2 Network Adaptor for a loooooong time, I finally get it in the mail this weekend. Aces. I move my PS2 so that the cable from my computer can reach, install the network adaptor, plug in my Ethernet cable, put in the install disk, run the connection test... "Connection test failed." Huh. Try it again. Failed. And again... and failed.
Call up Comcast and ask them what's up.
"At the time, we're not supporting the PS2 Network Adaptor."
"But I've already got cable Internet service with my PC... I can't just unplug that and plug in my adaptor?"
"No, sir... right now, we're not supporting it."
*resisting the urge to flip out* "Okay... well, do you know when
you might support the adaptor?"
"No... we don't have a planned date on when we're going to support it. You can call my manager on Monday... he might know more on the subject."
WAAAAAAAAUUUGGHHH! It's not like I'm hurting for games to play, but still... this was anticlimactic as hell. And it's not like I live in the middle of frickin' Montana or something... I live in Montgomery County, MD, north of DC... overall, a pretty pricey place to live. And Comcast cheaps out on PS2 network support? Inconceivable, as the late Wallace Shawn might say.
Anyone else experienced this? What did you do, other than fight the urge to go kick some Comcast butt?
