For the people who are getting the IP-Fragments message after a PS3 network test.

Hi people.

 

This is for the people who are getting the IP-Fragments message when they are doing a network test.

 

This is the message: 

 

"Your router may not support IP-fragments and communication features of some games may be restricted"

 

It drove me crazy so im did some testing.

 

In my D-Link router (DIR-100) there is an "Enable DOS prevention" option. It is in the Firewall Settings page.

 

I get the IP-fragments message when i enable this option.

If i do not enable the option the message does not appear after the network test.


I dit not want to keep this to myself so here it is.

 

Greetings,

 Also change MTU setting to 1500 from inside your router, thats how I got rid of the message

Hey man.

 

What kind of connection do you have?  DSL? Cable? Do you use wireless?

 

This is what i am thinking. Try the network test while your PS3 is hooked up with a ethernet cable .

Then you can rule out the wireless settings in your router.

 

I have seen some posts on another forum. The person lowered his MTU value in his playstation to 1492 but not in his router.

It was 1500 in his router.

 

Maybe you could try that.

Re: For the people who are getting the IP-Fragments message after a PS3 network test.

Hi again,

 

I am still having problems with my network.  It still gives me the same message each time I do

an internet connection test.  I'm going nuts without my network.  My internet works perfect on the browser option

of my PS3 but my network keeps kicking me out.

 

Plz help

I find that I only get this error (when) you use a D-Link router & manually set your MTU on your PS3.
You can completely eliminate this message (and it's only a message, it doesn't actually change your online experience) if you set the MTU on your router to 1500 and set the same value on your PS3 network connection to 1500 also.

Your router will always control the MTU, but if you set the MTU on the PS3 network settings to the same [MAX VALUE], your network test will not find any fragments.

I.E. set both to 1500.

It'll work, Honestly. :smileywink:
