That looks like the version they sold in Canada - they used the Japanese style adapter without the analog modem because by the time it came out hardly anyone in Canada was still using dial-up and it was cheaper.

I honestly don't know - I just remember seeing them one time I was in Canada back when the PS2 was still current and noticing the lack of an analog modem port. I also just noticed that it has "UC" on the label - which is the code that Sony generally use for North American product (USA/Canada).

It was sold as part of the PS2 Linux Kit in North America.

They're very common in Europe.

I think this is more about the packaging - the actual adapter is the same as the EU and Japanese version. It's not standard for the US, though - that was the SCPH-10281, which differed from this variant because it had both a network port and an analog modem.

I still suspect this is a Canadian market product, not least because it's marked in English and French but without Spanish, which is normal for Canada, but would be unusual for the US market.

Thats the Linux kit adapter.
My US issue network adaptor has French/English but no Spanish. The manual is Trilingual. Same with my DVD Remotes. My guess is it has french on the box due to the laws in Canada doesn’t seem there is any similar law in Mexico.
Btw the tape seal is consistent with that too, I am not aware of any normal U/C items that had that.
