I want to first apologize if there is an answer some where on these forums for this already but I tried following multiple tutorials to connect my ps2 online and I get dns errors every time. If anyone could help me figure this out I would sincerely appreciate it. Also thank you to everyone who has been contributing to keeping this game online.

You should get a memory card with Free MCBoot installed (FMCB) then you can obtain and play a patched version of BF1 and BF2, through the USB port using a flash drive, that automatically finds the new game server and ignores the DNAS junk entirely.
Never let a person named AnthonyBF2 touch your BF2.

I remember seeing that in a couple of tutorials I looked up but is that the only way to play on the ps2 currently? A lot of the guides I saw just said to change the dnas in the ps2 connection settings but every guide I followed ended in me getting an error. Is the method your talking about something you have to download and if so, how do you apply that to the ps2?

You can buy a memory card with FMCB already installed for about $15, this includes several homebrew apps, some apps which allow the user to run games from a burned disc or the game ISO/ROM from a USB drive or a hard drive on the fat PS2. You can install FMBC yourself but it's a real hassle, you have to obtain all kinds of materials and follow numerous guides, this is why most people just buy a memory card that's already prepared.

Regarding the DNAS, issue, I cannot remember, I've been using the patched homebrew method (DNAS fully removed) for so long that I cannot remember how to deal with DNAS issues.

I have the same problem. It looks like they changed the IP address again because I was playing just a couple of weeks ago and haven't been able to play since

Christians DNAS is apparently down. If someone sets a new one and give me the ip address i can update it.  Or you can use DNAs bypass patch.

DP has tried to set up our own DNAS (US only).  Someone can test it and see if it works (we can't).

The patch is the best way to go, it's way more efficient waiting a few days for a Memory card then waiting to connect to DNS and have it work every here and there
