I'm guessing you mean PlayStation 2 or PlayStation 3? And are you connecting via ethernet (Cable/DSL) or via phone line (Dial up)? Also if you have a PS2 is it slim or fat? If you have a PS3 then go to Settings-Network Settings-Internet Connection Settings. If you have a PS2 then I think you need the network software disc that came with it, but you might be able to do it from system configuration.

Where to go to change my nat and where to go


Depends on what router you have:

Linksys:

1) Go to the Security tab, then the Firewall section. Uncheck "Filter Internet NAT Redirection" and click on Save Settings.

2) Go to the Administration tab, then the Management section. Set UPnP to Enable. Click on Save Settings. This will cause your router to cycle, so you may momentarily lose your internet connection.

Retest the network on your Xbox 360 and NAT should be listed as Open.

How to connect Ethernet cable through the pc to the Microsoft Xbox 360 elite Game console for Xbox Live, without buying a separate router ?


You will need a cat5 or cross over cable, plug it into the pc and xbox, if you use vista then it is quite easy, goto the startbar and goto connections, you should now have at least 3 connections.
your connection to the xbox and if you have wireless your wirless connection or wired connection to the internet and a connection with just numbers 14... or somthing like that. Note that xp does not allow wireless and wired connections to be bridged, i dont know if they have changed this through updates, but last time i did this it would not let me. I cant remember the program that does allow you to do this on xp, but as i can remember it is quite hard to do.

You will need to bridge 2 connections, your xbox connection and you internet connection, to do this left click on one of the connections just to highlight it, press control(ctrl) key and hold down, click to highlight the other connection, you should now have 2 connections highlighted, now right click on 1 of them, in the drop down menu you will see a tab saying bridge connections, click on that and it does the rest. After it has finished bridging the connection you should have a new icon in the network connections window, it looks like a bridge. You may need to restart your computer to make the settings take effect.

Now try to connect to live on the xbox, you should be able to connect straight through the computer to internet connection, and also if using vista access your media.

You may have a problem with your NAT type after doing this. Usually it says you have a strict NAT type, you will need to forward ports on your router to enable you to connect properly, do a google search for which ports you need to open in order to remove the strict NAT, you also search on how to forward ports using google, all the information should be there. hope this helps. Post back if you need further assistants.

Yes, you have to search for the TCP and UDP port numbers and open them in the router config not forgeting to bind them to your LAN ip address.

Nat problem


first off make sure that you manually allow the port exception on windows. second make sure the exception is added to your router, for example if your computer ip adress is 192.168.1.101 (run ipconfig in command prompt to find out) make sure the port is forwarded (use a number above 40000 and make sure it is not blacklisted). next if your router has uNap settings/NAT translation make sure you add vuze to its programs to monitor list.

I want to open my NAT so i can play xbox live


Okay. If you look at Network connections on Start menu (XP) open network connections...
Then select the on you are connected to... (LAN or WLAN) Click the support tab and you will see something like "192.168.1.1"
Well type that into your browser, if it ask you for a password the default is normaly "admin" or "1234" (No quotes)
Temper with the "Gaming" or "Wireless connections" or "port forwarding"
If that does not work, are you sure you got xbox live gold?
(or hit the reset button on the back of your router)

Hi I need help with my modem settings. It is siemens speedstream 4200. I am told in forums I need to open ports to solve my problems.. but cannot successfully do it. PS3 will only give a NAT3 connection...


Do you have the device hooke up directly to the speadstream 4200? As the Speedstream 4200 is a modem most companies already have this device in bridged mode because it is largely understood that if this device enters a home it will be shared. That being said do you have a router? if so your task will be that much more easier if you are going to purchase a router please ensure that you buy a good one as gaming can be quite intensive and some routers do not do so well when it comes to this..

Depending on your ISP if you place the PS3 in DMZ you may have to registar the mac address with them before they allow it on the network. As of now they probably have the Speedstream modem registered and this is why you do not have access to online gaming in DMZ.

BELLS RED FLAGS ALARMS WHISTLES WARNINGS
a site that requires you shut down protection,
has some intent of using that lack of protection.
usually its something nasty

online gaming should not require more than the opening of the NAT in the router to the address of the game host.
check the settings of the router many have prewritten rules for the major game hosts, that just need to have the checkbox marked.
I have 3 sons with different online gaming and have not had to disable the firewall

using the routers built in menu, cant tell you the address beyound 192.168.0.* because no details on router model, you can enable gaming mode, and leave the firewall intact.
goto the manufacturer(router) webpage and check the FAQ for your router
