Right, first of all i have no clue if this is in the right subforum, if it isen't my appologies !
Now my issue ..
First of all i have a ''ZyXEL P-2602R-D1A'' Router, if thats any help at all.
What i've done is, i have given my computer a static ip address, given my PS3 a static ip address, with all the right information, forwarded the right ports inside my router, switched on uPnP, restarted my router and PS3.
Everything seems to work just fine, i have internet, my PS3 can go online, except when playing online games, be it Fifa 11 or Black Ops, everything is still at moderate ..instead of open.
I would appreciate if someone could tell me what i did wrong and or what i need to do to fix it !
Thanks for reading !
Try turning uPnP off, as you've forwarded the correct ports you shouldn't need it on.
I've tried disabeling uPnP, turning of PS3 + Router but still no luck, i've been trying to google and apperently there's a lot of mention of a DMZ mode, so far i've literally looked for over 15 minutes in my router and i cant find anything mentioning a DMZ ..
Any help is appreciated ..cheers !
The DMZ is in the Routers Firewall section.
You can download a .pdf of the user manual here.
Cheers for finding the turtorial, i really dont want to be a pain the ***** ..but unfortunatally i am >_<
I've read over the manual, trying to understand one bit of the DMZ mode/Firewall unfortunatally i stil cant find anything solid on how to put my PS3 into a DMZ.
I've upload 2 screenshots of my router, both in the firewall section, i was hoping you could take a look at them and possibily if you time, to help me out here.
Open your Router and click Network > NAT > Port Forwarding, now where it says Default Server type in your PS3's static ip address.
As you can see i've typed in my PS3 static IP into the Default Server type, restarted Router & PS3, i was really hoping that it would jump on open, unfortunately it didn't.
If you have anymore idea's, i would appreciate it, i'm clueless right now considering i've done everything that should make your NAT type go from Moderate > Open.
