Hi. I'm trying to get an open NAT type for my ps3... I've tried tons of stuff, but nothing seems to work. I have a linksys router. I have tried putting it into DMZ, but that doesnt seem to work either. I dont quite understand all of this networking stuff, so thats why im here.

What model router do you have? I tried with a WRT160N about a year ago, and it was IMPOSSIBLE to get it to port forward or UPNP correctly to a PS3 or PSP. I finally contacted Linksys support and they basically told me to **** off and return it if it's not working. Although they didn't say to "**** off" directly, they didn't want to help and the only thing they were interested in was running the serial to make sure I was in the support period...


I returned it and went with another Belkin. Haven't had problem since.

Try to manually forward the ports needed. Go to http://portforward.com/cports.htm for the ports and also use their guides for help on forwarding them.

If you need help, post back what games you're trying to fix. Also post back the make and model of your modem. (Some modems have built in firewalls these days)
