that dmz shizzle saves you a lot of work without it you have to manually enter every port for psn network and every online game you play, take a look on portforward.com for ports and information guides hope this helps you decide, i know which route to take i would choose , good luck

you have to set your ps3 a static ip then place that ip into a dmz if your router uses a dhcp server choose an ip at the opposite scale , everything is on port forward .com from setting static ip to dmz you just need to sit down and work it out, oh and once your router is set you then manually enter it into ps3 network setting otherwise your dhcp server will assign it one, completely wasting your time

ok i have followed the steps of dmz and the static ip is assignedinto dmz.

 

now you mention the dchp? i checked that on the router and the ps3 is in there with an ip of o.o.o.o.

 

is this why its not working?

That would be the problem all the naughts what router have you got? some routers do it by MAC address not IP address i think the BT Hubs do the DMZ by MAC address.

Get your PS3 MAC address from system information in system settings then see if your router does do it by MAC address not IP address.

on my d link router i had to manually enter both mac address and the ip because i was doing it while connected to pc not ps3 every router manufacturer is different and thats why i pointed you to port forward.com once completed it will say open. keep trying, i know it can be confusing

i have a bt home hub 2. ive seen on the bt forums everyone is having this issue with mw3.

 

anyways it doesnt let me edit dchp table. also it has the mac and ip listed in there. but everytime i select a static adress and place it into dmz t comes up with 0.0.0.0.

 

also i do notice in the dmz section it states " hosts with statically ip adress's cannot be placed into dmz"

WELL....., ANOTHER LOT OF PEOPLE WITH STRICT NAT TYPE FOR MW3. I WILL BET MOST OF YOU HAVE A TELSTRA THOMPSON GATEWAY ROUTER, THERE IS AN EASY FIX FOR NOW. PUT MW2 IN AND GO TO MULTI PLAY, THAT BEING SAID, IF YOU HAVE MW2... AND WHILE AT THE MENU SCREEN EJECT THE DISK AND LOAD MW3. YOU MIGHT HAVE TO DO THIS 2 MAYBE 3 TIMES BUT ITS AS IF YOUR KEEPING YOUR LINE OPEN AND IT WILL COME UP OPEN NAT TYPE.... THIS BEING SAID IM PREETY SURE ITS AN ACTIVSION SERVER  PROBLEM AND THEY NEED TO FIX IT, AND FIX IT FAST. SO I ALSO RECOMMEND WE ALL GET ONTO ACTIVISION AND MAKE THEM AWARE OF THIS MASSIVE ISSUE... AS FOR THE ROUTER, THE TELSTRA TG782T IS LOCKED (GOOD OLD TELSTRA) AND THE ONLY STEP FROM HEAR IS GET SOMETHING THAT IS ABLE TO BE UNLOCKED AND SELECTED NAT TYPE AVAILABLE.... HOPE THIS HELPS PEOPLE....

i found that putting my ps3 into a dmz also didn't work, but i found a solution.

 

put in mw2 (i expect you have an open NAT type on that, if you don't, then this won't help) go to the party menu and eject the disc without quiting. put in mw3 and your NAT should be open. worked for me

 

hope this helps
