Ps3's working online. Laptop not working online. HELP!!
I have a ps3 connected using these settings on my linksys WRT54G router; DMZ enabled to host 192.168.1.103 the ports i got from portforward.com under goto(guides to Port Forwarding Guides by Router to WRT54G to PlayStation Network. Entered those and ports 10070-10080 TCP 10070-10070 UDP 6000-6999 UDP. UPnP enabled but not entered in my PS3. Do I need to use the UPnP on my ps3.

you can auto config your network settings on the ps3, make sure you see your wiresless network, if you dont your router is not broadcasting its ssid and you need to activate it by logging into your router from a pc ( in a browser go to "192.168.1.1", username is "admin" password ia "admin" or nothing, unless you set up otherwise)
If you dont remember your WEP/WPA code you can find it under "wireless" then "security" in the router once you have gained access as mentioned above.
If all of above is ok then check your IP on your ps3 in settings, network status (i think havent done it in a while) make note of it and go back to the router as mentioned above. click applications and gaming then dmz, enable dmz and type in the ps3 ip, save settings and perform a 30 second reboot to the router (unplug it for 30 seconds) all should be good!
one last note if you have configured everything and you cant connect or it takes ages to do anything, you may need to reposition the router, mine is on the otherside of the room and is working great =p
I believe your initial problem was for PCAnywhere rgiht? just make sure ports 5631 (Data Port or TCP) and 5632(Status port or UDP) is properly opened/forwarded on your router's config page plus make sure that you instruct the router to forward those ports to the computer that you have PCAnywhere plus I have read some articles that newer versions of PCAnywhere 10.+ 11.+ will not work with older version 5.+
Now if it still doesn't work try setting up DMZ for you host computer(Note: enabling DMZ will open a wide range of ports, well common ports that is).
good idea to assign your own ip but no need to use dmz...
do the following:
1. reset your router to factory settings, assign urself an ip address (make sure its out of the scope of the dhcp), no need for dmz 2. enable upnp (thats what ps3 uses) open these specific ports if u are using firewalls TCP:
3658 should also be opened for voice chat.
also if u want to make it faster use Port forwarding and then forward the above port to your static ps3 ip address and u will get even lower pings to play games and no lag
