    We recently switched our ISP from Iowa Telecom to Netscape, for reasons that it was cheaper. Well my problem is that my PS2 wont connect with the Netscape sever, the message my PS2 gives me is Authenticaion Failed, you get this when you havent entered your screen name or password correctly, I have entered all of the information that was needed and I know for a fact that I entered it correctly. I have talked to a friend of mine and he said that it could be like a pop-up blocker or firewall or incorrect DNS numbers, but we dont have a firewall and the DNS numbers are set on automatic just like our home PC, and I guess it could be the pop-up blocker that Netscape uses that is giving me the trouble, but I dont know for sure. Obviously its working through our computer or I wouldn't be posting. But I have noticed that when my PC connects it makes a different sound than what my PS2 makes when connecting,(I also noticed that when I had my old ISP, when my PC and PS2 were connecting they made the same sound) I dont know if this is a componet or not. My old ISP worked fine and didnt have any problems. So, im looking for some help on this issue and any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
