NAT3 Setting. I am computer challenged and can't turn it off!

2 Replies 1920 Views Created 16-10-2010

MY PS3 says my network configuration has a NAT3 setting when i try to play Red Dead Redemption, so i cannot connect with other players.  I have a MAC Snow Leopard and a D-Link Wireless Router. any ideas how to turn off that setting?

You have two options.

1. open the psn network ports on your router settings

TCP 80
TCP 443
TCP 5223
UDP 3478
UDP 3479
UDP 3658

 

2. Put your ps3 into DMZ this will put your ps3 outside the firewall giving you better connection, i would go with this option.

 

Nat1 ps3 without a router.

Nat2 ps3 with a router all ports open

Nat3 ps3 with router ports not open.

 

hope this helps :smileyhappy:

Find your router in the list on the website, then find PSN, follow instructions.
