    i am not running a router, the playstation3 and computer are not run at the same time. Do i need to get one to do this or can i do it with the computer? i pulled up an article on the internet on how to manually open the ports through windows xp, but i dont know if it is correct. it brings you to the firewall screen and then i clicked exceptions on firewall ports and openened 9293tcp. Do i need to do them both udp also? i spoke to playstation on many occasions and they said to open 9293 tcp cause its the universal plug and play port. But someone else at playstation gave me different ports on another day, you have no idea what i've been through with theese stupid ports. please help if you can? all the technology and all the money for these systems and you have to be bill gates to play a freakin playstation. for all you online gamers it seems that Xboxlive is just beatin the crap out of playstation3 save your money and buy an xbox!!

    thank you very much, i appreciate your help. i am looking into the routers

    What router are you using? I'd suggest you assign a DHCP reservation for a specific IP address and then forward Port 9293 to that address (both UDP & TCP).

    If you tell me the router type, I can give you directions on how to do this.

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 (,, 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.

My EA nation connection keeps crashing

f this issue has been ongoing, I would recommend troubleshooting the network connection.
Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can take for the network:
* Disable your Media Server Connection under [Settings] [Network Settings] [Media Server Connection].
* Power cycle your network devices. Leave both your modem and router unplugged without power for at least a full two minutes.

After you power cycle, attempt to reconnect to your network with the following steps:
* Select [Settings] > [Network Settings] > [Internet Connection Settings].
* Choose [Easy] set up, and then [Wireless Network].
* [Scan] for your network, then select your network from the list.
* Press right once you see your network's ID, then ensure that the proper security type is highlighted. Press right again, and then enter your network security key.
* Press X to save your settings, and then X again to test if your connection is now working.

* Try positioning your PlayStation3 system closer to the wireless router to enhance the wireless signal.
* Try updating your router or modem firmware through your computer.
* If your router has a MAC address filter, please add the MAC address of your PlayStation3 to the accepted list. Your MAC address can be found at [Settings] > [System Settings] > [System Information].
* You may need to open ports on your router. I've included a link to the port information below, you will need to contact your router manufacturer for support with opening the ports for game play:

Firewall Port Numbers to Play Games Online
Article Link:

* You may need to connect the PlayStation 3 system directly to your router via an Ethernet cable to increase the signal strength.
* Finally, try connecting your PlayStation 3 to the Internet in a different network environment (such as a friend's house) to see if you receive better results. If you do, the problem lies with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or router manufacturer.

How to connect to the internet

You should have a home modem from and ISP (Internet Service Provider) Also If you have a router you need to plug the Ethernet Cord (the cord that looks like a Giant phone line) into the internet port of the router, Now if the router is a wireless router and you want to use the internet wirelessly you need to open your wireless connections and you will see your router in the list. Simply double click the connection and it will automatically connect for you. If you do not have a wireless router and you want to connect more than one computer to the internet,Simply keep the ethernet cord plugged into the internet port on the router and you should have 4 other ports next to each other. Plug another ethernet cord into port 1 and plug into the back or side of computer. That's it. I hope this helped have a good day

Siemens Speedstream 4100: Enabling ports for Xbox live play

Do you have a router connected between modem and console? The speedstream itself has no port blocking. if it is a straight line between modem and console then all ports are already open, but chances are you have a router between the too, especially if you have other devices connected(computers and the like). If that is the case, then it is the router in which you need to open the ports. If you do have one, post make and model plus version number if applicable.

No internet connection

This should be connected as so. From wall outlet to DSL modem, from DSL modem to D-Link router, From D-Link router to Laptop via wireless or wired connection. You will still need the DSL modem installed but the wire coming from the DSL modem will go to uplink port on the router instead of into the laptop.

Was workin now not

You are having port issue with your router. If you could careless about playing the online content just sign out of the PSN and the game will work fine. If you want the online content/games you need to open/forward a lot of ports on your router. I had the same problem. The ports required are as follows: Port type: TCP: 9293; 6358; 25; 110; 80; 443; 5223; 10070-10080; 50000-65535*. Port type: UDP: 3074; 3075; 3658; 3478; 3479; 6000-6999; 7000; 50000-65535*. If you don't know how to open/forward ports call the router manufacturer and ask. *some routers will only let you enter 65534, but try 65535 first.
