Have you got a copy of MW2 ?
This "trick" has worked for some people, this is copied from the COD section of this forum.
Here's what you do - (you will need a copy of MW2 for this to work.
Put in your copy of black ops, go to multiplayer. Go into options and then hit select. The NAT type should say 'strict'.
Now quit the game and go back to the playstation home screen, eject black ops and put in your copy of modern warefare 2.
Load up the game and go into mutiplayer, go to 'play online' and find where is says NAT type. It should say 'OPEN'.
Now while still on this screen eject the disc which will take you again back to the playstation home screen. Put black ops back in and again go to mutiplayer, then go to options. Now cross your fingers and hit select. Your NAT type will now say OPEN!

I have a ZyXEL 660HW T1 v3 and had a STRICT TYPE 3 NAT when trying to play Black Ops. After a factory reset on the router, going into the advanced tab and enabling the 3 UPnP options, Black Ops worked fine. Conection test stated TYPE 2 and the game stated OPEN. All good. No other options were changed. Although I have tried to find the DMZ option, there musnt be one on this type of router. But when I put MW2 in it states that the NAT is STRICT. After a few plays and a few days it reverts back to NAT 3 in the conection test and Black Ops states STRICT, although I have not changed the settings on the router. I then have to Factory Reset the router again and enable the 3 UPnP options.
I JUST DONT KNOW!!!! If there is someone out there who can sort this your name must be God.
Please help us.........

On Black Ops a STRICT NAT 3 will not let me connect to most friends and vice versa and finding an online game will take forever. This is realy the only online game I have been playing since moving house with a new ISP "Post Office" and the ZyXEL 660 router. Tried MW2 with STRICT NAT 2 "Black Ops OPEN NAT 2" and this would not connect to most friends.

Its seems that a lot of people are having problems with their "NAT TYPE" being on moderate, mine also, it's a wonder that the playstation have not put anything on here for its members
