My DNS server is not responding

Specs: Windows XP, 264

I am not able to connect my playstation 2 (flat model) to the internet. I have the ethernet cable intalled properly. In addition,the initial connection to my laptop is good, but when the game system tries to connect to the internet I get the message DNS Server not responding. I am not familiar with this problem. Would someone assist me with connecting my playstation 2 to the intenet; so that I can play video games online. Thanks in advance for you advice.

Sincerely,

Louis

Have you checked if the playstation 2 has the correct IP addresses for your ISP's DNS servers? I'm sorry, I personally don't know how to check that on a PS2, but if you find it then you compare the IP address(es) the PS2 has for DNS servers with the IP addresses that your laptop has. If they are the same then there is some other problem. This is just the first thing you check.

"I have the ethernet cable intalled properly."

Pryolitic and Wanderer, Thanks for your responses. The PS2 has the correct address to the server. My ethernet cable is connected to my laptop and to the PS2. I am connected through an in-home wireless laptop that is utilizing a router upstairs. I am using the laptop downstairs. The PS2 has the correct IP address to my laptop (wireless connection). My PS2 states it has accepted the IP address, but when it tries to authenticate and connect with the server I get the DNS server not responding. Thanks in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

What ip address does the ps2 get?

Did you engage ICS or bridging between the two laptop interfaces so the ps3 traffic can travel thru the laptop to the router and then the internet?

Thanks for your response. No I did not bridge or interace the connections. How do I do that? Thanks you once again.
