Re: wnr834b

If you tried my solution, then you would have opened all ports, so ports would not be your cause of lag at the moment. The thing is, you do not need to open any ports at all to connect to a game server, you only need to open ports when you BECOME a game server. The lagging will be down to your Internet connection, try to find a gameserver with a ping below 100. Alternatively, look for programs that consume your Internet connection like programs that are used to download MP3s and Applications as these will cause your game to lag heavily. Anyone else on the network may also be downloading or uploading, which will have an effect on your game, too. However it is most definitly not a problem with your ports.

Hi, my Belkin N Wireless router works in some way fine with both Wired and Wireless connection, but there is a problem, it will only allow me to connect wired to my computer and not to my PlayStation 3......

You may need to change settings in your router to enable your online games to work. Some games need to use specific ports; these ports may be closed due to the router's firewall. Please refer to your game's documentation for the ports required.

Use the following answer to configure these ports in your router.

In order to configure this, you need to know:

- The IP address of the computer or device to have the port forwarded to.

- The port numbers to be used and whether these are TCP or UDP ports

(Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router.)

Setup steps:

  1. Open a Web Browser on the computer. Type in
  2. In the address bar of the Web Browser type Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.


  1. Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left


  1. Enter the following information
    • Click Enabled
    • Type a general description of the application i.e.. Remote Desktop
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Inbound port fields
    • Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH for the Type.
    • Private IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer you want grant access too.
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Private port fields.

The playstation 3 does not work with certain games saying there is an error on the router (error code: 80710723) How can we open more ports on the router? Thanks for your help

Generally what happens is that progress will stall whilst you are trying to update the firmware or software/games on your PS3, causing it to be corrupted. Your console is then unable to function properly, and you are left trying to "pick up the pieces" as it were. The PS3 error 80710723 is one of these system update errors, and is often experienced by gamers who use wireless connections to update their firmware or games.

So how can you fix PS3 system update error? Here are a few steps you can take to try and fix the 80710723 error code yourself.

  1. In your System Options/Network Settings you need to go and disable a setting called "media server". Doing this has been reported to fix the PS3 system update error in a number of different cases.
  2. If you are using a wireless network connection then switch to a wired connection and attempt to update your console. Wireless connections can have interference, or fail from time to time. Therefore it is better to use a wired Internet connection where possible.
  3. As a last ditch resort you can actually download the update from the Sony website onto your PC, then load that update onto a USB stick and plug it into your PS3 and carry out the update process from there. However, it is best to actually try and fix your connection problems first.

Game server and my IP address

First option is to forward ports where your friends can connect to. The second option is to put your computer in DMZ. These options can be found on the router settings.

Unable to open any page

I think it's better to have this case isolated, since it's happening regularly, I think. Does it say the computer got disconnected from the wireless or does is still have the right address after it stop going online via wireless?
Maybe there is an interference that is causing this issue.

Strict NAT?

If you call microsoft, and tell them that your NAT is strict, they will tell you specific ports you will need to forward. (For Free). If you arent sure how to forward ports, call up your routers manuafturer, or send me another message. I have forwarded my ports as well.

Wireless router wnr834

An easier way of opening ports is to use DMZ, this will open all ports to one computer on the network. Go to the DMZ part of your wireless router, find out the computer's network IP address (192.168.1.x - x being your number) and enter it in DMZ and save your settings. Then take all the game related port forwarding settings out the router (don't touch DMZ after setting it up) and that should do the trick. Saves messing around with individual ports.

How To Make a DMZ

A router normally stops incoming Internet traffic from getting on your network, unless the traffic is in response to one of your computers or when using port forwarding. But instead of discarding the incoming traffic or using port forwarding, you can send incoming traffic to one computer on your network by establishing a "Default DMZ Server". (DMZ = humorous reference to "Demilitarized Zone".) This avoids you having to figure out what ports an Internet application wants ? by throwing all ports open for that computer. For regular network operation, NETGEAR recommends you do not use a DMZ. A computer with DMZ loses firewall protection, and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, your own computer can attack the rest your network. Instead of DMZ, use port forwarding, as described in How is Port Forwarding Configured? However, the DMZ server feature is helpful: * When you have a problem connecting to an Internet service. Setting up a DMZ will determine whether a closed port is responsible for the problem. * With some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. Follow the procedure under your router model to create a DMZ To Create a DMZ for RP614, MR814, FVS318, FVM318, WGR614 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is Click Go. 2. Enter the username and password for the router (Default username is admin and password is password). 3. From the browser Main Menu select Advanced > Security. Some routers, such as the MR814, use the WAN Setup Options, page, instead. 4. Enter the server's IP address. 5. Click Apply. To Create a DMZ for FR114P, FR114W, FM114P, FR328S, FVL328 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is Click Go. 2. Enter the router's username and password (Default username is admin and password is password). 3. From the browser Main Menu select Advanced > Security. 4. Click Rules. 5. Check the box for Default DMZ Server, and enter the server's IP address the corresponding box for the IP Address. 6. Click Apply. To Create a DMZ for RH340, RH348, RT328, RT338, RT311, RT314, RP114, RO318, MR314, DG814 * Going through the GUI and going to Port Forward in the left menu bar. * For RM356: Going through telnet and from the main menu go to menu #15. 1.
