Switchover date to Sky BB is tomorrow.
Last day on AOL today.
Currently only play PS2 online and connect via ICS (Internet Conn Sharing) using a crossover cable (as AOL only provide a modem not a router).
When I start using the Sky BB equipment, If I want to play PS2 online will I just plug the crossover cable into the router or do I need another cable?

A crossover cable is usually used for connecting two computers (as in ICS). To connect a computer to a router you need a normal ethernet cable -- at least one is supplied with the router.
