Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GX Router (WRT54GX2)
I cant update cod5 on my ps3 in order to play online. i can play cod4. i read a forum that told me to setup gaming ports on my router it told me to add ports tcp: 80, 443, 5223 and udp: 5223, 3478, 3479, 3658. i dont know how to setup ports and i dont know what portforwarding is.
You need to login to your router and go to firewall or virtual servers. In there you can setup port forwarding. The goal is to forward external (internet) traffic to a specific internal machine (your PS3). You do this on a per TCP/UDP port basis and must specify the appropriate external TCP and/or UDP port and internal TCP and/or UDP port. Sounds harder than it is.
Or you can setup your PS3 in your router's DMZ (Demiliterized Zone). This sets up the router to forward ALL internet sourced traffic to a specific machine (your PS3). This is the easier way to do it so you don't have to worry about specific TCP/UDP port numbers.
