    I have my PlayStation 2 set for online play with the Linksys wireless setup and it has worked fine for months. (

    Now though, when I try to connect, it always says the Madden server is not responding. When I do the "Test Connection" it is successful, so there is a signal, but no matter when I try to connect, I get the "not responding" error.

    Last week, a friend mentioned that his 2.4ghz cordless phone seemed to be interfering with his wireless connection for his laptop. I have always had a 2.4ghz phone, but I did add two more headsets so there is "phone to phone" communication going on now.

    I am at a loss. Any ideas??

    its possible that the extra phones are screwing it up, never hurts to try and disable them...
    im guessing that the signal strength is adequate. u say that the madden server is seen as down, have u tried connecting to other game servers like SOCOM or something?

    I don't have any other games with online capabilities, so no luck there.

    I will try unplugging and turning off all the phones.

    Also, someone on another forum suggested chaging the freq. for the phones but I cannot find a menu option to do that.

    Any ideas??
