PunkBuster is an annoying program that stops players from using software or mods that might give a player an advantage. PunkBuster is required by all PC users for most EA games and other PunkBuster supported games.
http://www.punkbuster.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

The above link contains a download for PunkBuster. Install it to your PC and check for updates to the games you have installed.
If you are getting the message on the PS3 there is nothing you can do since PunkBuster is only used on PC's.

After a factory reset for a playstation 3 and reconnected to the Wi-Fi correctly and every thing connects except the playstion network what do I need to do to get the playstation network to connect


Once you are connected to the wifi, make sure that it has internet access. Also, sometimes disabling the media server can help. to do that go to:settings - network settings - media server connection than disable the media server.

Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'GeT_RiGhT_H' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed


That means that you were on a private server and either that person kicked you for too much lag (slow connection between your connection and his), or most often that is what happens automaticly when a server admin sets ping time (lag) limits to bump players who weren't getting a clean connection to the server, and the system says you were kicked by the server admin who set the limit.
Fixes:
Try a different server with players located closer to yourself.
Make sure there are not too many people using heavy downloads or streaming applications at your home or on the same network.

Hello, I am having trouble connecting to servers on black ops. It loads up until im about to start a multiplayer game, the loading circle just keeps spinning and then kicks me out. What can i do?


You can make sure you have an open nat. To perform this you will need the following router information. You obtain this inside your router menu usually 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 entered in the search bar of your internet browser. You will need to find your router information such as the Base IP or what you used to enter the menu, DNS server 1+2, Default Gateway, I suggest using a piece of paper and writting all that information down. Second step you will want to go into your menu and find out your DHCP range usually 192.168.2.100-149 or 192.168.1.100-149 depending on the main IP address of the Router. 3rd step go to the Gaming and Applications tab and find and set the DMZ (note you will want to set an IP easy to remember as well as outside of the DHCP range) so in case it looks like the numbers I gave I would select an IP around 192.168.1.160 or 192.168.2.160 and enter that in the DMZ as well as write this number down. 4th step Reboot router which actually puts the information into the router and makes it active. Now with the information you have go into your PS3 now. Main Menu, Settings, Network Settings, Connection Settings either wired or wireless, You are going to want to do a Custom Connection Type, Network Device auto detect, Manual IP settings, Enter your information gathered from your router, MTU automatic, Proxy Server dont use, UPnP disabled, then hit X to enter for your connection test, You should get a Nat Type 1, or Type 2 either are preffered. Continue into your game, if your still having issues there is a selection inside of the game before your MultiPlayer screen and it says Nat Type Preffered is Open moderate does work however, then Party Privacy usually it shows open, but if your still having issues, try to select Locale Only. This will look more for the closer game servers to you. Hope this helps Happy Gaming.

Play online ps3 in hotel free wireless Internet n won't connect


I'm staying in a hotel and have free wi-fi and wired internet but I can not seem to get online. During the connection test the "obtain IP address" step is successful, however the next step "internet connection" fails. This is an unsecured network and does not require any wpa keys , and I don't think it requires an SSID. I had no trouble connecting my laptop.

You need to download the new software update for battlefield bad company and there will be less crashes and glitches to the game. The online has improved a lot.
