Networking computer to PS2

This might sound like a stupid question but I recently got a liksys router and want to hook up my computer and playstation 2 to a cable modem. I already have my computer and home phone linked but my mplaystation is on the other side of the room. I have an extra ethernet cable, but it is not long enough to reach. My question is how long of an ethernet cable can I buy and does anyone know a good place to buy them? thank you

Str, If I Remember Correctly...CAT5 Cable...

In reply to: Networking computer to PS2 generally limited to about 100 meters (approx. 300 ft.). Lengths long enough to reach across the room are available at almost any computer store.

Hope this helps.

One thing to remember

In reply to: Networking computer to PS2

Not all PS2s have an ethernet jack built in. Some of the older ones you have to buy a special online kit for. Might be a good idea to make sure your PS2 is network ready before you go buying network cable for it.
