Does this involve a PS3?

Posted on Jan 09, 2009

  • Logan Margulis Jan 10, 2009

    On the PS3:

    under settings>network settings>manual setup



    it'll ask what ip address you want to use... my network is setup like
    192.168.1.1 (router) - so i gave the ps3 192.168.1.120 (no other device
    on my LAN has that ip) cause i have it set for a range starting from
    192.168.1.100-140(end) in the router config... (yours could be
    different)



    then i added the DNS IPs, which can be found under the "status" menu of
    your router (linksys in this case) and i also had to enter the subnet
    mask which in all likely hood would be 255.255.255.0 and then saved the
    network changes in the ps3...



    went to my router's config page and forwarded the ports that were
    mentioned in the first post to the ip address of the ps3 192.168.1.120
    (setup earlier...)

    Basically, you need to open the ps3 ports on your router. If you need more specific instructions, please let me know.





    i now get the nat type 2 when doing test connection...

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

I have hughesnet and a belkin f5d8235-4 v2000 (N+) router and i run a connection test on my ps3 i get 1st 2 success and psn failed because of time out...Also when i play multiplayer games like assassins...


That is the reason you are having problems. NAT refers to how much bandwidth you have. Try making sure that you play whaen no computers are connected. My PS3 is like this as well, and I don't want to upgrade my internet so I just deal with it

Thank you for your time, good luck and I hope this helps

I went on a trip and connected to a network with a moderate NAT type. When I got home I tried to connect back to my original network which is usually open and it didn't switch back to open. I connect using...

I cant play online becouse of this a NATtype3 what dose this mean


Nat 3 is the result of being hooked into a router without being properly setup for data transfer. essentially it is restrictive.

There are 3 ways to change your Nat type to type 2 or 1. (Nat type 2 meaning that it is properly setup without restrictions behind a router, and Nat 1 being a direct connection to the Internet).

1.) Hook the PS3mag-glass_10x10.gif directly into the modem will result in a Nat type 1, but of course that means disconnecting everything but the ps3 and that's an unnecessary hassle.

2.) Going into the router settings and Port Forwarding the PS3's necessary ports to the Ps3's ip address.

3.) Probably the simplest (on most routers) and most effective is to go into the router and set the PS3's ip address in the DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone), essentially the router doesnt have any say from what comes and goes to the Ps3, which is good so the connection isn't hampered.

NAT Type Failed - PS3


contact your manufacterer of the router. they'll be able to explain to you what the nattype is and how to correct it. generally i'd suggest to ry connecting it directly to your modem but the nat type has nothing to do with your ps3 and has everything to do with your network setup. check all your security settings

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!
