Question about Belkin N Wireless Modem-Router F5D8633au4A
I have a Belkin Wireless model # F5D8233 - 4v3 router and I have a PS3 connected to it I am trying to forward ports to play a EA sports game online. I set up the ports forwarding but I still can't connect to ea servers. I have also tried putting the PS3 in a DMZ and that does not work either. The PS3 does have an internet connection. Can anyone help?
Actually you don't need to forward ports when playing online games. The router should automatically locate the ports for the game because it has UPnP function. Here's what you can do. Disable the port forwarding and DMZ that you set on the router. Look for the UPnP function of the router and disable, Save it. Enable it again, then save. Now power cycle your router. If you have Static IP on the PS3 network settings, try to set it first to automatic IP and automatic DNS.
Hope that helps.
