Cisco 678 DSL and PlayStation 2 Adapter

    I'm interested in connecting a PlayStation2 network adapter
    to my Cisco 678 router to play games online via DSL with my nephew.

    It looks like I could hook the 678 to a small hub and run an
    ethernet cable to the PS2 adapter. Or would I have to unplug
    the computer and run the cable directly from the 678 router?

    Has anyone tried this setup with a 678 yet? If so, how did you
    hook yours up?

    Thanks in advance.

    I haven't done this but, you can just add a hub. The 678 in ppp mode is a
    router. You may need to do some things like opening ports on the 678. Check
    out this web page for some tips on this it says Cisco 675 but it applies
    to 678s as well.

    Also, if you currently have the 678 hooked directly to your computer, that
    is done using a crossover cable (a yellow one comes with the 67xs). You
    would either hook the crossover cable to an uplink port on you hub or use a
    regular Ethernet cable hooked to a regular port on a hub between the 678 &
    the hub.
