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

PlayStation 3 keep getting nat type 3 when need type 2


Hi
I was having problems with my PS3 as well I did the following

updated firmwire

Also I assign static ip address on my PS3 and forward ports used by PS3 to static IP address of PS3 on routers firewall.

Ports used by PS3:
udp 3478
udp 3479
udp 3658
tcp.domain (port 53)
udp.domain (port 53)
tcp.http (port 80)
tcp.https (port 443)
udp.ssdp (port 1900)
tcp.amandaBackupInitiation (10080)
tcp.Jabber SSL/TLS (port 5223)
tcp.10075
tcp.10078
tcp.10079

If your still getting problems configure the PS3 to be in your DMZ.

DMZ will be under applications and gaming. Just look for that setting in your routers setup page and add your PS3 IP address to it.

I am trying to open the router ports to allow a ps3 to connect. when i try to play call of duty:modern warfare 2, i keep losing the connection. can you help me open the ports and configure the settings?


Some times you will need to open the Logical Ports on the router.
These are the logical ports.
For this you will need to open the set up interface of the router.
Once you open the set up interface of the router, you will be able to find the settings on the router where you can open the ports for the particular program.

If you are opening the ports for a special device in your network, then you must know the IP address of that device.
For example, wireless camera, DVR, X-box, Play station ...
You can choose the option PORT FORWARDING for a special device application.
If you just want to open the ports for all the network, then you can choose PORT TRIGGERING



For example ,
You have a Linksys wireless router and you want to open the ports for the X-box.
You have opened the set up interface of the router. You will see Application and Gaming TAB at the top.
If you click on that tab you will find different Sub tabs.
Click on Port Triggering => Here you can open the port numbers for the network.
Click On Port forwarding if you want to open the ports for a special device in the network.
Click Save settings once you open the ports on the router.

Some of the recommended port numbers for different applications :

IMAP ==> 143 SMTP : 25
HTTPS ==> 443 HTTP : 80
DNS ==> 53 FTP : 21
SNMP ==> 161 TELNET : 23
XBOX ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
PS3 ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.
WII ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443
VPN ==> 1723, 500, 443-447, 10000-20000
World of Wars ==> 3724, 6112, 6881 - 6999

Belkin 54 g wireless router....cant find on the net. need to port forward to host blizzard.net games HELP!


Make sure your private IP address is statically set.  Your public IP address is obtained from your ISP and is what other users will be connecting to.  You can not manipulate your public IP address so if your ISP is running DHCP, it is very possible that your public address is changing.  Also if you are frequently disconnecting your modem, it is possible your ISP is leasing you a new public IP address each time.  So try to keep things as static as possible.  As far as the battle net stuff.

Diablo, Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, and StarCraft: 
Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in
Diablo II: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) 
Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) 
Warcraft III: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) 
Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you've changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) 
If you are still having problems after you open up the required ports, try opening 116(TCP) and 118(TCP). I don't really know if these ports are required or not. 
I have had people tell me that opening up those two ports have helped them connect to battle.net.


Hope that helps.  For manipulating ports in your router I suggest consulting your user manual, or online FAQ.  Save your router config before applying any changes, and always remember, opening up ports subjects you to different types of security threats so be aware that is a risk you are taking.

If the game you'er playing on PSP requires opening a certain port then access the setup page of the router by going to 192.168.2.1. Go to and place the port number of the game and enter the IP address of your PS3. You may also set the PS3 to DMZ if you know the IP address of your PS3.

Or call the toll-free Supportrix Tech Support at 1-877-787-8749 and give "support call" as promo code for one free technical support call.

Make sure that you NAT is open to your PS3. To open it, you need to forward some ports. Call up PS3 and ask them what ports are needed to be forwarded. Then, go and do the adjustments to your router.
