I can't play with one of my friends on playstation 3


Well, if you're up for anything. Try having your friend do exactly what you did with the ports/updating/modem. What ever you do, he has to duplicate or else you guys will be on a different page.

My friends and i play tiger woods 2011 on the ps3 at night about 11:00pm to whenever. the problem is that we have been getting kicked out from the servers almost all the time. this has been going on well...


Nice name
you might have a bad connection if you are wired
1 Dissconnect your ethernet cable from your PS3
2 Disconnect everything from your modem to reset it
3 If there is a reset button on your modem push it
4 Put everything back in and do a connection test. If your NAT type is 3(Strict) you will have a hard time playing due to low bandwidth
If Wireless
Do the same, but also reset your wireless router.
2 Try also changing the secruity settings
Thank you for your time, good luck and I hope this helps

Im playing call of duty and cannot get onto any online games. I have an internet connection and im at the rank of lance cpl 2nd class but I cant play on any games?


Make sure that you NAT TYPE isn't moderate or strict if so factory reset the modem/router and if that doesn't do it, go into your modem/router via PC and set your PS3 as a DMZ host. NOT: Setting you PS3 system as a DMZ host puts your console outside the firewall.

How do you open nat type on the ps3 ?


Nat type is actually defined by your isp..(internet service provider) some companies do not actually support gaming and therefore their service is considered "strict" by ps3 standards for multiplayer gaming online. You may have to reconfigure your pc internet security settings on the computer itself...possibly logging into your router/modem. If this is not helpful or u are unsure of how to do this, contact your isp and explain to them you want the nat type changed...basically they will either not be able to at all and then u need a new isp or they can do it in a matter of minutes and ur nat type will change and give u full access to ps3 online within a matter of hours...hope it helps and u get back to gaming!

There is usually two reasons for this.

The first one is the game is just having server problems.

The second one is usually the problem and that has to do with your router settings causing you to have a 'NAT Type 3' connection which can cause connection issues with other players.

Having a closed or limited NAT on your gaming console will cause a variety of issues. Similar to strict, moderate or open on an Xbox 360, the PS3 offers Type 3, Type 2 and Type 1 NAT results. These break down as follows:
Type 1 - Connected directly to the internet (no router/firewall). Should have no issues.Type 2 - Connected through a router properly. Should have no issues.Type 3 - Connected through a router without open ports or DMZ setup for PS3. Everything should function properly, but you may have connection, voice chat or other issues.While most everything will function properly regardless of what your NAT setting is, your best bet is to set up your PS3 so that you can obtain a Type 1 or Type 2 NAT. Since most of us have routers at home for connecting multiple computers or devices to the internet, chances are the best we will get will be Type 2. Thankfully that's fine and everything will work properly.

If you have not adjusted your settings on your PS3 or router, chances are you have a Type 3 NAT and probably never knew it. With a few simple changes you too can have a Type 2 NAT. Order now for just $19.99. But wait, there's more. joker.gif

The first thing you will want to do is check your network connection. Head on over to the Network Settings tab on the XMB. It looks like this:

81f2d771623f487a81a535cdadc3645f.jpg

Once there choose the Internet Connection Test item. It looks like this:

7fc2a4f7dabe45bdb7aa0c69802adec5.jpg

You will receive a warning letting you know that you will be signed out in order to perform the test. Choose okay. If you have not made any setting changes in your PS3 or Router, chances are you will receive the following message:

9d1a308a38cf466dac7c0c8066a9b85a.jpg
The warning reads: "When the NAT type is type 3, chat or the communication features of games may be restricted. For more information, refer to the online instruction manual."

If you run the test and have Type 2 or Type 1, stop fooling around and go play some games! If, however, you have Type 3, read on for help on opening up your NAT.

In order to open up your NAT on your PS3 you will need to make an adjustment on your PS3 and on your router. First you will want to set up your PS3 for a static IP address. This means turning off DHCP and assigning your PS3 a single, static IP address. Before you start this process head over to the network tab on the XMB and choose "Internet Connection Status." From here note your current IP address, your subnet mask, your default router and primary and secondary DNS settings. Write these down, you will need them in the following steps.

To do this, visit the Internet Connection Settings tab on the XMB. It looks like this:

da972233d5644141a5c5e1ede940d352.jpg

From here most of the settings can simply be passed through with default settings. There are two areas, however, that you have to change. The first is choosing a Custom address setting (instead of Easy).

ef168db6a4de4bf2b898c79a0eee6b9e.jpg

From here, you will want to choose Manual IP Address Setting:

65f9f0de4b704e45b7b1dc99d1bde5e2.jpg

Remember the settings you wrote down from your status page? You will need them here. You will have to enter in the static IP Address you want to assign to your PS3, the Subnet Mask (which is usually 255.255.255.0), the default router (the IP address of your router, most often 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.100.1), and the Primary and Secondary DNS settings. You will have to input all of these numbers. This is made much easier with a DVD Remote or keyboard.

Please NOTE - You will want to set the last number of your IP address high enough that other wireless or wired items on your network will not be assigned the same number through DHCP. While DHCP had chosen .3 as an IP address for my PS3 initially, I bumped it up to .23 because I have less than 23 items in my network. If you do not have DHCP enabled on your router, you do not need to worry about this and can simply choose an IP address that does not conflict with your other devices and which is available through your router.

83f1d6dec23e4658a9870e9262728bb0.jpg

Once you have all of the settings input, press X to save them. Your settings will change and the PS3 will offer to perform an Internet Connection Test for you. If you let it do the test now chances are you will still get a Type 3 NAT connection. Don't fret little bear, we still have one more step.

In addition to making the necessary changes on your PS3, you will also have to open up some ports on your router. The ports you need to open are:

TCP: 80, 443, 5223
UDP: 5223, 3478, 3479, 3658

I have a Linksys Router and my port forward settings page looks like this:

59c653fed8fa4b6d97dc2d0b7b7f0d13.jpg

Depending on what type of router you have, your settings page may look different. In order to obtain an open or Type 2 NAT, you will need to open those ports listed above.

You can see in my screen capture that my PS3 is listed with its static IP address that I set above (.23) and that all of the necessary ports are forwarded to that IP address. The X listed items above (.24) are for my Xbox 360 so you don't have to worry about those.

Once you have forwarded these ports and saved your settings its a good idea to unplug and plug back in your router. This will refresh everything on your network connected to your router. Once done head back to your PS3 and perform an Internet Connection Test. If you did everything correctly you should receive the following page:

Congratulations, your NAT is now setup and working properly!

My PS3 has no NAT Type!!


there is something known as NAT strict that can happen due to many reasons , NAT or network address translator helps in converting the WAN ip address to LAN side IP address or public to private ipaddress . In a case of NAT strict or no NAT type ur PS3 or the router to which you have connected the PS3 is not able to convert the IP address...
Solution: try logging on to the router manager or PS3 settings and enable the NAT ( it would be in a disabled state or DMZ ( de militarized zone ) state )....
If the nat is already enabled Then try to manually configure NAT by opening the port numbers on the router manager or PS3. Port numbers can of UP or TCP protocol depending upon the games ur tyring to play....
If u donno how u do it then contact sony or the people who gave u the router or ur ISP
