How to get Open NAT Type?

Ever since I got a wireless router, my NAT Type on FIFA 13 and COD: Black Ops has been Moderate, and today when I signed on it was Strict. I played a few games online and didn't experience too much lag, but a big thing is my best friend on PSN who has Moderate NAT Type, cannot join my party and I can't join his. When I go into a public game and he joins, we are on the same team but we can't hear each other on our headsets, although sometimes we can hear each other in the pre-game lobby. However when we play with our two other friends we can always hear them!

So I believe I can fix my problem if I get an Open NAT. I put my PS3 in a DMZ but it didn't help at all, just that I never get kicked out of games now. It didn't improve my connection quality.

I have seen people fix the problem with port-forwarding, but I don't really know what it is or how to do it, despite reading a couple of guides. So is this the only way to fix my problem, and how do I do it???

P.S. My router is a 300mbps TP-Link

You could try disabling UPnP on the ps3.

 

It's not needed when in the dmz & might be interfering by trying to open ports.

You have to open some ports on the wireless router, you have to ENABLE dmz, you have to ENABLE UnPn.

From the Mass Effect 3 mp Bioware forum:
"Playstation 3:
Enable UPNP on your router.
Manually open UDP port 3659 and 6000 on your router to allow inbound and outbound traffic. "
Opening ports manually is done on a pc through Windows, CMD.
Just google it.

If you're in the dmz OR have manually opened the required ports, you do not need UPnP.

 

Of course, leave it switched on in the routers settings for other devices.

OK I have opened the required ports for Black Ops and put my PS3 in a DMZ. Later I will disable UPnP and try opening the other two ports mentioned. On Moderate ATM.

Hey guys, I solved my problem by getting a pair of homeplugs and then taking my router out and only using my modem for PC internet, and upstairs PSN via the homeplugs. Worked first time when I changed the wires around and now the wireless router isn't being used :P

So with your other post here in mind:

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General-Discussion/Using-homeplugs-with-PS3-for...

 

Are you saying that you'd always been using a 2 router set-up (sky & tp-link) & now you're only using the sky one?

 

No wonder you had connection problems.

Yes the Sky one is the modem which has the internet through the ADSL wire and I connected it to the TP-Link.

Ah, ok.

I'm glad you've got it all sorted. :)

 

For the record, almost all routers are modem/router combo's but are just referred to as routers.

Fibre connections will have a dedicated modem with separate router set-up.

 

Many people do connect 2 routers together in order to extend wireless coverage or whatever but they do need setting up carefully to avoid double nat & other issues.

 

Homeplugs beats wireless hands down. :)
