Sounds like you are using TKS as a connection to the Internet and "piggy-backing" AOL to provide your content.  With your PS2, you would want to use TKS as your ISP as the PS2 is provided the Internet connection via your DSL modem (TKS.)  AOL is only serving content to your computer, NOT the connection.  
I assume that you are using a Netgear router, in this case, set the PS2 to get its' settings automaticaly.  If there are any problems connecting to the gaming service, etc, you may need to place the PS2 into the DMZ, which is a fancy way of saying that the PS2 is not protected by the firewall on the Netgear, nothing to worry about with a PS2.  For DMZ config. refer to your manual or to Netgear itself.

The specific error message would help.

Help on your T-DSL line (English not guranteed but your Deutsche should be ok by now:
(0800) 33 04433.


You can manually install the T-DSL adaptor and protocol drivers. First you¹ll have to get the drivers. For some reason, Telekom doesn¹t offer these drivers for Windows separately for download. You¹ll find them on the T-Online CD (March 2001 or later). The drivers are found under <CD>:\Adsl\Treiber\PC\win9x (or for Windows 2000 F:\Adsl\Treiber\PC\W2000).
From within your Networking Properties control panel you¹re going to add a new protocol. When prompted chose ³Have DiskŠ² and browse to the folder above. Then choose the file called ³TDSLProt.inf². This will install the T-DSL Protocol. The T-DSL Adaptor should get installed automatically at the same time. If not, then follow the same procedure to add the adaptor driver but this time select the file called ³TDSLAdap.inf². Once both the adaptor and protocol are installed, you¹ll have to reboot.

Are there any OS2 specific drivers on the CD?
