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.

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:

I have a netgear wgr614 router and can't get my ps3 to play online.(upnp is not available)


Most routers have a menu you can access.
There you must forward your ports.
You must find out what ports ps3 uses and put them into your gaming ports.
Depending on your router settings you may need to do specific assignments.
This should get you going.
Xbox requires me to have the proper internet settings to access my router.
Portforward.com helps noobs to forward ports on your router by use of your computer. Once they are open, your UPnp will be set.
It may seem hard, but once you give it a shot, you will be happy.

My NAT is strict, i need to change it for an online game im playing how do i switch it?


You could have a look in the setup of the router and see how to put the gaming port in the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone). This will basically bypass the router for gaming. Each router is different, you'll need to look up the setup for your specific router.
