    The USA network adaptor works fine in the UK provided you know how to set it up.

    you can use internet sharing on your PC with a network card, then connect the ethernet socket on the PS2 to the network card. i have not done this but heard it works.

    well if the US adapters works as plug and play on the EU ps2s then I would assume that there would be no problems or am I mistaken and there is something more to it?

    You would need to be able to boot the setup/config disc, which would be a US disc and wouldn't usually boot on a PAL console

    the startup disc provided with the network adapter has setup software for a variety of American ISPs.
