I found this website that claimed that these ps2 games are still online but not sure how accurate it is because as far as I know, Gamespy closed down the servers to ps2 games but there is a way to play online around to it is called Open spy and Xlink (not sure how to spell it).

Let me know if you've tried it with any of your games that are still online, thanks.

Yeah that list is pretty outdated, the official servers for almost all of those games are no longer up.

But yeah, you can play more than a few of those games over Openspy. Openspy is an unofficial server that emulates Gamespy. Any Gamespy game that didn't require a Gamespy ID login to play online will work with Openspy.

Also, Xlink Kai is LAN tunneling software. It will work with any game that has LAN play (system link).

Okay I can confirmed 3 games I tried out worked.

Flatout
Call of Duty 2 Big Red One
Full Spectrum Warrior* (it required Gamespy log in and password)

*created myself one and it worked.

Auto Modellista doesn't work.

I looked around after failed to connect to set up online from these games with my own internet setting then I found a website that dedicated online games (PS2) called www.bobzent.info This guy (Bob or whoever) set up servers for all games and give out Primary DNS to use to run a server to get online for PS2.

PS2 DNS: 24.104.226.56

Now he gave out specific games that are online and available to play but it's 3 years old topic so give it a shot with any games you may have from bobz's list.

According to SquareEnix and Sony, only Final Fantasy XI is still using Sony's DNAS servers, and they are shutting DNAS off at the end of March of 2016, with Final Fantasy XI stopping Xbox 360 and PS2 support then and going PC-only after that date.

Some games have unofficial servers stood up, but DNAS was widely used by online games, and the unofficial servers may not be connectable after the DNAS shutdown, unless they are patched to skip the DNAS step.

I have heard you can still play Timesplitters online still.

Does anyone have a guide to getting it working?

What's the point?
If it does work then you'll be lucky if you can find more than 3 other people in the world online on their PS2's and they'll either be total noobs and easy prey, or so hardcore that you won't stand a chance.

Even before Gamespy went down the servers were scarcely populated, even on the most popular titles: SW Battlefront was empty, Killzone was empty and there were 4 people in Battlefield playing the same map over and over again.

If one really really must get online on their PS2 in 2015 then your only realistic hope is to use one of the aforementioned bypass methods and arrange a time and game with a group of people and hope that they don't have crap internet.

SW BF II had a dozen or so people at any time, but most other titles were less than 5 if lucky. When i got Killzone online, there were only maybe 8-10 people on it.

^ that

hell, even when the PS2 was current, it wasn't hugely populated online, as the fat model needed it's own broadband adaptor (which cost a fair bit) and less popular games probably had only less than 5 people online at a time. It's not like these days when the consoles are internet ready out of the box. Even then, plenty of games only a year old, have 0 people online (such as Driver San Francisco)
