Playstation 3 NAT type Moderate > open ?

15 Replies 11,571 Views Created 01-01-2011

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 !

 

Cheers !

Try turning uPnP off, as you've forwarded the correct ports you shouldn't need it on.

Re: Playstation 3 NAT type Moderate > open ?

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 ..

 

I've got a Zyxel P-2602R-D1A and stil cant seem to find anything on the official page

Any help is appreciated ..cheers !

The DMZ is in the Routers Firewall section.

You can download a .pdf of the user manual here.

@ Mahavishnu

 

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.

 

Cheers,

Open your Router and click Network > NAT > Port Forwarding, now where it says Default Server type in your PS3's static ip address.

@Mahavishnu

 

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.

Re: Playstation 3 NAT type Moderate > open ?

My NAT has a mind of it's own, it was on open but over recent weeks it's been set to strict.

 

To be honest , I don't notice any difference in gameplay , no difference at all :Thumbs:
