I can't change the nat type for ps3 or call of duty black ops how do i change the nat type


When you do a connection test on your PS3, what NAT type shows up; 1, 2, or 3. If you're worried about the STRICT NAT type in Black Ops, don't worry about it, the problem is the game and not your router.

My nat type on my Playstation 3 is nat type 3 (strict). I would like to know what setting configuration on my WRT54GX router so that the nat type decreases.


Well this becuse of NAT on the router

you can solve the problem by putting your PS3's IP address on DMZ in the router

access your router page (type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of internet explorer)

username would be admin and password would also be admin

go to the DMZ and enter the IP address of the PS3 there after enabling it....restart your PS3....bingo your problem solved

Note:- you can check your PS3 IP address in the network settings and connections option on PS3

Hope it helps

Thanks

How do you open nat type on the ps3 ?


Nat type is actually defined by your isp..(internet service provider) some companies do not actually support gaming and therefore their service is considered "strict" by ps3 standards for multiplayer gaming online. You may have to reconfigure your pc internet security settings on the computer itself...possibly logging into your router/modem. If this is not helpful or u are unsure of how to do this, contact your isp and explain to them you want the nat type changed...basically they will either not be able to at all and then u need a new isp or they can do it in a matter of minutes and ur nat type will change and give u full access to ps3 online within a matter of hours...hope it helps and u get back to gaming!

Nat type strict on ps3


I have windstream and it is always strict. You may want to go into your modem and make the router a DMZ. Just make sure your firewall stuff has not been changed on the router. Then DMZ your ps3 static ip. If that does not work I have been told i need to call my isp to get them to change it somehow. Or you could supposedly bridge it, but I gave up on it. I just accept the fact that sometimes I cant play with certain people or chat with certain people.

My PS3 has no NAT Type!!


there is something known as NAT strict that can happen due to many reasons , NAT or network address translator helps in converting the WAN ip address to LAN side IP address or public to private ipaddress . In a case of NAT strict or no NAT type ur PS3 or the router to which you have connected the PS3 is not able to convert the IP address...
Solution: try logging on to the router manager or PS3 settings and enable the NAT ( it would be in a disabled state or DMZ ( de militarized zone ) state )....
If the nat is already enabled Then try to manually configure NAT by opening the port numbers on the router manager or PS3. Port numbers can of UP or TCP protocol depending upon the games ur tyring to play....
If u donno how u do it then contact sony or the people who gave u the router or ur ISP
