Re: opening ports for online madden on ps2

I do believe you need to hook the router up to computer, enter the ip of the hub in windows explorer and it will open its control panel. That is where you can edit all the settings of the box. Check the manual that came with the router.

Port Forwarding for PLAY STATION on NETGEAR routers

The following steps will help you forward ports on the NETGEAR router for Play station network (PS2, PS3, PSP). At time you can not access or play online games through your PS and in such cases you need to make sure that you have the required ports forwarded on your router as mentioned below. The below steps are applicable for NETGEAR router model WGR614, WGT624, WPN824, WNR2000, WNDR3300, WNR854T, WNR834B etc

1. Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari) on your computer connected to the router.
2. Access the router, usually by typing '' or '' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router (Username = admin and Password = Password unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
5. Click on 'Add Custom Service' button.
6. Specify any name for the service (PSN1). Select Service Type as TCP/UDP
7. Specify the Start and the End Port as 80.
8. In the server IP Address specify the ip address of the PS3.
9. Click on 'Add' button.
10. Follow the same steps to open the below ports
Start = 443 End = 443 use name as PSN2
Start = 5223 End = 5223 use name as PSN3
Start = 3478 End = 3479 use name as PSN4.
Start = 3658 End = 3658 use name as PSN5.
Start = 10070 End = 10080 use name as PSN6.
Click Apply.

These steps would allow you to access online games on your PS connected through the NETGEAR router.

I would like to configure my router to open nat, it is currently at nat type 2. it affects call of duty black ops and sometimes madden. i dont have a user name to get into router website. let me know how...

open up internet browser and goto
enter "admin" for username and "motorola" for password
click "gateway" and navigate to "port forwarding" tab
enter the ip address for the xbox/ps3 as well as entering the ports 53,80,1863, and 3074 in the correct box. once you do the first port, you will understand better how to do this. i would also suggest changing the username and password for the router.

I have a N belkin router and have a problem with playing my friend online on PS3. We can not seem to get the server to hook up on madden nfl 10 football. Is there some way to lift any firewall that maybe... need to forward ports for that game in belkin router.... contact PS3 people and get the list of ports to be forwarded... then login to the router from any computer that is connected physically to the router by typing in any web browser...goto virtual servers(password leave it blank)..type those port numbers and type your ps3 ip adress there and enable it... also enable dmz for your PS3 ip address in router.... and also disable NAT firewall in router....

I have a netgear wpn824v3 wireless router, I have lost connection about 5 to 6 times I got it about 3-4 weeks ago... the wireless light blinks slowly unless if i'm opening a page in explorer.also how fast...

You might need to reload the software on you pc using the cd it came with. I have the same router and we use it mainly for Madden online through the PS3. Remove the progeam files from the computer and run the disc again.

Won't let me connect to PlayStation 2 online

no need to turn off the router's firewall... just forward the ps2 port number on the router. make sure you manually assign static ip address to your ps2.
