For gaming all you need to do is go to http://whatismyip.com your ip# will come up. Give it to your fellow gamers and they can join your game. As far as ports go, you need to find out what ports are used for your specific game. These can be found easily with a search, theres bound to be a forum or two that have this information available. Once you find out what they are, enter them into your port forwarding page. Making sure you apply your settings to 10.0.0.1.

try setting up the ps3 using static ip address. the subnet mask is usually 255.255.255.0 and check your DNS server in your router to input it in your ps3 cause it can vary.
Next, you can open the ports through your router 80TCP, 443TCP, 5223TCP, 3478UDP, 3479UDP, and 3658UDP all assigned to your ps3 static id address.
You can open the ports or use DMZ function(enable), which is alot easier because all you need to input is the static ip address that was assigned to your ps3.
However, i set them both up and i'm too lazy to go back to check whether it needs both or one of them, but i'm sure one of them will suffice.
Note: If you have DHCP enable, you have to check where the ip address starts and ends. You want to assign your ps3 static ip address within that range. Remember, assign a static ip address that is different from your default router ip address cause it can lead to alot of viruses.
This is usually caused by the setup of the TCP/IP properties, most people do not have static IP addressing, so open the Wireless Connetion Properties window, find the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and select it then select the properties button to bring up another window showing the properties for this, select the "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically", OK out of these dialogs and that should take care of it.
your computer is not getting IP address from the router. You said that you reset the router. Press the Reset button on the router and hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. Unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. restart your computer and check if that connects. If that doesn't work then assign a static IP address in the range of your router. you will need to find out the default IP address of the router. you will find the default IP address of the router in the router manual or if you go to the web site of the manufacturer, you will get the IP address of that router. Now once you assign a static IP address to the computer it will show you connected , now try to set up your router. Click Here for more information about the router and network
Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.
The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.
Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.
First of all contact your isp and get your connection settings. If you are able to setup the router using the cd provided then good. If you are still having problems then go ahead and contact linksys (remember linksys charges for the support). I suggest get a technician to assist you in setting up.
Easy Pie! This is a cinch anda guarantee work through. It involves putting your PS3 into a DMZ (demilitarized zone) which simply means opening all of the ports on it.
If you have the following problems, this is likely to fix it.
Not being able to join rooms
Not being able to speak over your headset
Not being able to hear other people over their headset
Not being able to join private games
Any problems to do with connectivity to the PSN, especially if your computer will connect to the internet, but your PS3 won't.
Part 1-(On PS3)
Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal IP address. Normally whenever a device connects to your router it will be assigned a different internal IP address. These are normally 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, 192.168.1.4 and so on. Assigning a static one will ensure that your PS3 will get the same one every time it connects.
Go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 XMB. Choose whether you are using wireless or wired.
Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected.
This will display a page where customizable IP Addresses are available to be entered.
IP Address- This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Use 192.168.1.80, simply because it is unlikely that 80 other devices will be connected at the same time.
Subnet Mask - always set to 255.255.255.0
Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router.
To get the exact ip of your router you should go to
cmd [Hit Enter]
Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway".
Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router"
Proxy � When you get to the proxy screen, select "Do not use Proxy"
MTU � Automatic
UPnP � Enabled
Part 2-(On PC)
In your Internet Browser, type the address of your default gateway, this will take you to your Router Configuration Page. Look for any mention of DMZ
When you have found this, it will ask you for the Static IP of the DMZ host. This is simply the Internal IP that you assigned your PS3. We used 192.168.1.80.
Finally, turn off your Router, PC and PS3 for a few minutes to ensure that the new settings are loaded. Then you're ready to go!
I tried everything and eventually figured this out. Do this!
Enable DHCP set the start ip to 192.168.1.100, and remove any static IP address on your xbox 360 (have it automatically detect connections) Set the MTU to 1364. enable UPnP. if you are using wrt-dd (if you aren't, you should be) setup QoS so xboxlive has premium priority.
And you have hit the ground running. Even microshats own website wont' help you fix this stupid problem.
