You need to know the port number first. Go to www.portforward.com and click on Common Ports for more information. To open the port, you need to do it using the router's admin page or setup page.

Can t get on line on my ps3


The PS3 is plug n play and if your router is as well then it will configure the firewall automagically. However, often the older routers just don't play well together. You need to open up ports manually and configure the router and firewall separately for each game you want to play. Each game has specific TCP and UDP ports that need to be opened up to allow access. Its not a trivial exercise. You need to statically assign an I{P address to the PS3 and direct traffic from the router to the PS3 IP address for those games you want through. Each game has the details on which ports to open on the website or in the instructions. Lots of luck

Not joining the games


Hi there,

I know what that feels like, you can play with other online people apart from your friends right?

Ok, the problem is the router, now and again it changes its settings to strick... so all you need to do is turn the router off by the plug for 30 seconds and turn it back on.. thats all i will then allow you to connect to your friends, and also tell your friends to do the same.

if you google PS3 router settings you can permantly change them so the port is always open, i never bothered as i didnt know if this would effect my secruity on the router.

Hope this helps

Invite by friends


it could be your router... can you connect your ps3 directly to your internet connection??ie ) modem like cable modem or DSL.

If it works then your router is not allowing whats called uPNP enabled service... this service opens ports automatically when called upon by certain programs... ie) ps3 connecting to a game.

check that out and let me know
