Click the Firewall tab -> Firewall Settings link -> Edit Firewall Settings page.
Click Add a new user-defined application in the Application panel to open the Edit Application page.
Enter an application profile name in the Application Name field.
It is recommended that you use the name of the application (for example, GEars of War).
Create your application definition in the Definition panel.
A definition consists of a series of protocol-specific ports that are to be allowed through the firewall. You can find this information in the documentation provided by your the company that produces the application.
Select the TCP or UDP button in the Protocol field.
If the application you are adding requires both protocols, you must create a separate definition for each.
Enter the port or port range the application uses in the Port (or Range) field. For example, some applications require only one port to be opened (such as TCP port 500); others require that all TCP ports from 600 to 1000 be opened.
Optionally, enter a timeout value in the Protocol Timeout (seconds) field for the amount of time that can pass before the application “times out.” The default values are 86,400 seconds for the TCP protocol, 600 seconds for the UDP protocol.
Enter a value in the Map to Host Port field that maps the port range you established in the above step to the local computer. For example, if you set the value to 4000 and the range being opened is 100 to 108, the forwarded data to the first value in the range will be sent to 4000. Subsequent ports will be mapped accordingly; 101 will be sent to 4001, 102 will be sent to 4002, and so forth.
Select the application type from the Application Type drop-down list. If you do not know the application type, select None (Default).
Click Add Definition to the profile definition list.
Repeat steps 1 through 12 for each port or range of ports required for the application profile.

Lastly, if the above does not work you may need to disable UPnP in your router settings if you are using a router to connect your PS3.
If you do not know your routers IP adress do the following:
-Go to the computer connected to your router, click start and select run in the bottom right. -In the run prompt type cmd and click ok. -A black window will pop up. Type ipconfig and press enter. -The 'Default Gateway' will more than likely be your router's IP address. -Type that number into your internet browser. -That will connect you to your router and the menu setups will vary based on the type/brand of router you have. -Find a setting called 'UPnP', disable it, and try your update again.
If you have a Private IP address from the Modem like 192.168.1.65. 10.10.10.254, 192.168.2.45, etc.... the the NAT will be an issue, for games like Dawn of Death 2 which need more Bandwidth when joining the Game Server the WAN IP address which is from your Modem need to Public like 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, etc... if you have a WAN IP address then check the Firmware of your router and if possible get the specific port number from the Game Administrator and open it on your router so that you wont have NAT issues.
every computer has an ip adress you might have to go to your internet setting and find some thing that says some thing like... internet adress hook up hopefully you keep files on your computer becuase with out your ip adress you might not be able to hook up its sorta like a combination hope it helpes:)
if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.
by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22
How are you connecting Your Xbox console upto your Internet ? if your Connecting Via WiFi, Make sure you have the Xbox compatible WiFi adaptor, if you are connecting Via a Local Area network, Ensure that your Console is hooked up Directly to Your Router, and if your connecting Via a Shared internet connection thru a PC, Ensure it is Hooked up correctly and also that your computer is set up to allow sharing the internet connection, That sometimes makes Xbox live faulty.
Also another problem for IP addresses not working is Due to your Internet service provider, Some broadband companies constantly renew IP addresses changing them every so often which the Xbox doesnt like. I would suggest contacting your Service provider and seeing if they have any Technical Support !
right fist of go on settings on the ps3 menu then go to network setting then click onsettings and connection status list take a note of all the ip addresses and servers then go to internet connection on the same menu and click on scan then click on your router name and then lick onenter ur wep key if u av 1m but if u dnt then cck on none then press right then go o custom on the address setting then manual on ip adress settings type in all ip address and servers and stuff then click on auto on the mtu dont use proxy server enable unpn click right then press x to save ur settings then test connection thn hopefully this works for u m8 cheers arsenal_07
