Possibly the lvi is the problem.

What message are you getting from PSO? If the light turns off on the modem when you try and connect then usually that means everything is working, including the line voltage inducer. I believe I sold you two line voltage inducers though so it might be worth trying the other one to see if that makes any difference.

Also, if you're using PSO v.2 then you'll need to use the Sylverant patcher disc every time you want to connect. If you're using a burned copy then you need to make sure it's patched to connect to the Sylverant server.

i have been useing the patcher. it logs me in but tells me that i cant connect to the server. as for the otber lvi the usb part came off when i unpluged it from an outlet. thats when i didnt know i needed it in the pi. also i do connect fine to quake but i cant pull up the server list. not sure if the two are related at all.

Can you connect to a server manually by putting in the IP? (e.g. 173.69.21.183:27962 for DC-Talk DM) You can enter the IP manually by selecting the 'More' button on the bottom right of the server list screen.

no i can't connect to a server manualy i tride them all. not sure whats going on here i also last night checked my router. its not blocking it it sees the pi i tried port fowording dhcp that didn't do anything. its quite confusing connecting ok but not. would posting a video on like youtube showing whats going on help at all? i can do that later.

EDIT: well i just try re burning the patcher and trying to channge settings with xdp and i get the same results of yes you are connected but akso no you cant connect to the server ect. could it be say my firewall or something blocking it?

I'm not sure of anything else to try right now but you can go ahead and post a YouTube video of the connection process just to make sure you're doing everything correctly.
