You are probably behind a firewall. You will need to reconfigure your network settings and open certain ports. Here is a link to Sony, and they have provided most of the port numbers you will ever need.

Hi there! i have a zyxel ph660-f1z and since it doesnt suport dmz i get nat type moderate on my ps3 so it gives a lot of trouble.... i have tried port fordwarding,upnp,default server but nothing seems to...


Sometimes not just the dmz or port configurations cause your nat settings to be other than open, you may not have good internet connection, the better it is the more you will open. Most routers are open by default, and those others need to be forwarded(like you wrote) with the upnp open and specific ports for xbox/ps3 servers opened. You seem to know a little already, maybe time to get a new router?,I recently upgraded myself due to problems with configuration.

My playstation 3 wont connect to the internet


Most of the time when I see this it means you haven't correctly forwarded the ports on your router to allow access through it's firewall. go here:
www.portforward.com

scroll down and find the manufacturer of your Router
then find your model #
when you click on the model # you will see a new page load with a list of programs, game systems, and other devices. Click on PS3 and it will show you step by step what ports to open to allow internet access
-pls rate "very high" if this helps and i'd love feedback- thanks

Can't Connectda


Hi,

Restore your router to factory settings, 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 on the router.

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.

Thanks

Can not connect ps3


You need to do portforwarding. You can visit this site www.portforward.com and that will show you what to do. You can also try to call Belkin support and they will help you open ports for PS3

Connection


if it is a wireless connection try moving closer to the router or look up a thing call port fortwarding...basically making a direct connection between your PS3 and your router.

PS3 online game (NFS Undercover) not working on new router.


I might advised you to call the PS3 manufacturer to gather the ports of the PS3 then you'll needing the help of netgear provider to open the ports of the PS3 to the router, so that the PS3 will allow to the firewall of your router.

My problem with internet


Hi there Case,

it seems like your PS3's Motherboard could be the problem with you not being able to connect, either their are faulty connections or damaged wires which connect the Ethernet port directly to the motherboard itself, if your PS3 is still within its warranty i wouldnt advise attempting a DIY remedy to the problem, instead i would suggest calling sony customer support and asking for advice to see if they can sort out a repair or replacement of your system

Hope this helps !?

Opening ports on 4100


Thanks for the information. I'd recommend obtaining a router, it would make your life easier because routers are made to do exactly what you're needing to do (split your internet connection among several devices (PS3, PC, etc.). I'm a fan of Linksys routers, I use them in every home deployment possible. You can find the Linksys WRT54G or some variant at any big box store (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.) or at online retailers (NewEgg.com, Buy.com, Amazon.com) for real cheap. All you'll need to do is hook up your router to your ISP'd modem, hookup your PC & PS3 to your router, enabled uPNP (universal Plug & Play) on the router and you're set.

You could use your PC as a router (assuming your PC has two network cards in it). You just turn on Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and specify which card is connected to the ISP's modem (internet) and which one is connected to the PS3 (internal network). I don't recommend this solution as it is a bit buggy and having to route all the data from PS3 through your PC degrades the online performance on both the PC & PS3.

I hope this info helps, let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.
