I take this is your type of network you have. NAT (Network Address Translation) only job is make all the IP's of you LAN to be able to use the one IP From the ISP. For example, you can have 3 Pc's connected to router (192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3) with only one connection to ISP, and address like 67.123.43.200 (Address change upon ISP location).
In order to the game communicate between PC ans Internet have to configure Ports to connect to. Thanks to UPNP (Universall Plug and Play) this configuration is made automatically between the PC and the Router and simplifies those configurations.

Things to check:
The router have UPNP and is on.
There's a Firewall interfering with the game.

I am trying to games on PS3 and cannot connect with friends. I believe this is because I have NAT Type 3 (closed) and I would like to change it to NAT Type 2 (moderate) but I do not know how.


Hi ..

The PS3 has 3 different NAT types. They are shown below.
Type 1: The PS3 is connected to the Internet without a firewall or router. No NAT issues.Type 2: The PS3 is connected to the Internet through a router which is configured correctly. No NAT issues.Type 3: The PS3 is connected to the Internet through a router that needs configuring.Ideally, you want to have a Type 2 NAT. However, a Type 1 NAT does not affect your game play.


First of all you will have to Disable the firewall in the Router / Modem

If you are using a Router ..

Then

Make sure that UPnP(Universal Plug n Play) is enabled
Enable the IP Address of the PS3 in DMZ

Or Forward the ports

Below are the TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded:

TCP: 80, 443, 5223
UDP: 5223, 3478, 3479, 3658

For more details on port forwarding , log on to http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

Hope it helps

I have hughesnet modem hn9000 and a netgear router. I am unable to connect to the internet with anything more then a nat type 3. I need @ least a nat type 2 to game. Any suggestions?


What you need to do is turn on uPnP (universal plug and play networking) this will provide an open firewall for gaming.
You need to login to the router as an administrator and ensure enable uPnP is enabled. It is often on the security screen for the router.
Please let me know if you need additional detail to help you set up your router.

If your using a router, you have to ENABLE the UPnp within your router settings. Once enabled your NAT should be OPEN.
If you do not know how to get into your router, you will need to ask someone you trust to do this.

Nat type changes back on ps3


you need to make sure that when you change it that you apply in your modem setup page that bridge mode is activated so that it turns it into a dumb unit allowing just to pass through the internet stream thus allowing constant nat 2 connection
