ps vita stuck on nat type 3

[ Edited ]
81 Replies 11,562 Views edited 22-02-2012

Hello everyone,

I just received my psvita and I was very excited until I encountered this strange problem:

When I connected my vita to my wireless router and I did a connection test, it read that the NAT type was type 3. Everything I tried on my router was a dead end, static ip for vita, port forwarding: every time NAT type 3. I know that this is not right and I should be receiving type 2.

And the most strange part is that both my ps3 (wired) and my psp (wireless like vita) show NAT type 2.

What is different with psvita?

Also I saw that many people here have problem with near app. Could you please do a connection test and tell me your NAT type?

Thanks.

Mines Type 2 - all features working fine [may help trouble shoot if NAT Type3 people have the problems]

if type 3 is private ip (192.168.x.x/10.0.0.x) with ports closed, then it sounds like the VIta isn't managing to do uPNP, or you've hardcoded something (probably for your PS3) that's stopping it changing the things Vita needs

Mines NAT type 3 but everything seems to be working fine for me. I don't think the Vita is able to make use of uPNP.

My vita is on nat type 3 and my ps3 is on nat type 2 after using portforward. I don't know why they both have different nat types.

I've just found a fix for this firstly you will need your isp's PPPOE password which they will give you no problem just ring them.Next on your Vita go to settings , Network Wi-Fi Settings , Click on whichever connection your on , Next click on Advanced Settings, Next click on ip address settings now enter the pppoe password the same in the two boxes and the password is case sensitive, cluck ok and that's it,Now simply do a connection test and your now on Nat Type 1.

It worked for you..... Right. My vita never need anything like this done, that worked for me..... See the problem.

Need more than one person to try this to determine if it is having the desired effect.

PPPOE settings will not work with all ISP's if your ISP only supports PPPOA the only option people have if UPnP isn't doing the job properly is port forwarding or a DMZ or an alternative router as a last resort.

Do you have a router?  If you have PPPoE (and not everyone does by the way), the username and password should be in your router.  You should not need to configure PPPoE on your Vita.

irishvipers method is legit. i was stuck on nat type3 and simply went into advanced settings in the vitas wifi settings, clicked on ip address and changed it from auto to pppoe. then i entered the password, im using an eircom netopia router here in ireland and as far as im aware the default pppoe password is broadband1. i rang eircom for my password as i changed it years ago using this very same method to get a nat type 1 on my ps3. anywho once the password was entered i ran an internet connection test an got back a nat type 1, cheers viper

Have you tried searching or posting in the Virgin Media community forums ? http://community.virginmedia.com/ Try in this section maybe. http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Gaming/bd-p/Gaming You're likely to get more help there.
