How do I change my NAT type from Moderate to Open?

#21likeatonabricksPosted 11/10/2009 6:13:14 PM
I figured out that I didnt set the static for my ps3, I set it up for my latop... which I am using now to try and resolve this situation. How do I set it for my ps3?

I just followed this tutorial and got NAT type OPEN for MW2.

Just plug your PS3 directly into your modem.

Or if that's not an option, put your PS3 in DMZ on your router.

Some people are experiencing connection problems and such with having open connections as is the same with mainly every game playable on PSN at time. Most PS3 games are especially like that until a few days after launch so just wait a bit and it will improve stability and connection wise.

Why does everyone keep saying this and other things like this, like its something everyone should know?

I dont know how to do that, I am trying to figure out the way to setup my ps3 for the optimal performance. I have had like 6 people trying to help, and I still cant get this situation fixed.

I find it rather ridiculous, that on top of paying pretty expensive prices for these games, we should also have to literally be PC technicians and learn how to mess around with settings on routers and such. If anyone can help with any of the info that has been provided, that would be awesome. And I would appreciate it BIG time.

Look at the link I posted above...

As for the "we must all be technicians" comment, welcome to Earth. Maybe in your next life things will be a little less complicated and involved. Its tiring but not impossible to learn. Just do it!

I did go to your post, after I read a bunch of other peoples post. Im so tired of trying things that dont work, I just put everything back the way it was.

All of this should come ready to go. There should be no reason people should have to go through this much hassle. Its my fault I guess. Give a new fps a chance, and look how much headache it costs.

Thank you to everyone who tried to help. Hopefully all this server crap will be fixed in a couple of days, and I will be able to join up and play with my friends. Paying 85 bucks for a game, and a headset, and then having to wait for them to get their ish together...is this really not upsetting to anyone else?

My question is, does it really make all that much of a difference? Doubtful.

Opening ports won't make much difference. If your NAT type is moderate you should still be able to connect to games and play with your friends. If you can't then its some other issue. I played for most of the day yesterday before I got round to opening the ports on my router and I had no problem.
