First, wire your ps3 directly to the modem, cycle (reset) everything then try the normal connection procedures. You should only have the console, and the modem in the equation for testing purposes, this will let you narrow down the problem. You must turn everything off so that all of the information on both ends will auto refresh.

I am trying to games on PS3 and cannot connect with friends. I believe this is because I have NAT Type 3 (closed) and I would like to change it to NAT Type 2 (moderate) but I do not know how.


Hi ..

The PS3 has 3 different NAT types. They are shown below.
Type 1: The PS3 is connected to the Internet without a firewall or router. No NAT issues.Type 2: The PS3 is connected to the Internet through a router which is configured correctly. No NAT issues.Type 3: The PS3 is connected to the Internet through a router that needs configuring.Ideally, you want to have a Type 2 NAT. However, a Type 1 NAT does not affect your game play.


First of all you will have to Disable the firewall in the Router / Modem

If you are using a Router ..

Then

Make sure that UPnP(Universal Plug n Play) is enabled
Enable the IP Address of the PS3 in DMZ

Or Forward the ports

Below are the TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded:

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

For more details on port forwarding , log on to http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

Hope it helps

My nat type is strict and when i try to play my PS3 i have connection issues. How would i get my nat type to be open?


Zyxel routers don't support Nat 2 confirgurations for the PS3 software. You can fix some issues by powrforwarding the speciffic ports that the PSN uses. To do so follow this ismple guide:

It may vary from game to game so you should choose what speciffic product are you trying to use here:

Need nat type 2-PS3 Cable ISP digital phone modem wireless route


you can put your ps3 in a dmz zone. if still does not work its not your router. u can keep your ps3 in dmz and get your router to open ports. u can call your router company. If still does not work its not your router more than likely. It might be your modem. i have at&t and that was my issue. i went to dmz on modem and allowed it to pass through dmz zone and ip addresses to pass through. but make sure on your comp u have spyware or something. Your ps3 can not get virus.

Hi! Could u plz tell me if there is anything i can do 2 fix my PS3 when i use the headseat online it slows the game and signs me out of the playstation network and sometimes says i have a NAT TYPE3 error....


first, is it wired or wirless?
how many computers and devices are connected to the network?
Did you manually set the settings on the PS3 network connection?
Have you changed your Router's settings or Modem's?

Try changing your PS3's network settings to automatic.
Disconnect any other computers and devices when using the PS3.

Driver Issues on Windows Vista Basic


As an adhoc solution you may try to download drivers for XP SP2, tell the driver installation applet to search for drivers from the folder you downloaded them to when it tells you this driver was not made for Vista tell it to install them anyway. It may not work but as this manufacturer is no longer in the modem biz vista is not supported by them at this time.
