Question from kingtjai76
My PS3 says nat type 2 but black ops says nat type strict why?
Can you help me this problem?

You have to port forward your router into letting the game access the internet.

I have noticed when using a wireless router you get nat type 2, or strict. But when the modem is hardwired straight to the PS3 you get nat type 1, or open.
Ignore what black ops says, its detection is rubbish. Doesn't make much difference anyway
The previous statement was backed by a university degree
Did you check out the options setting for your Black Ops game? I dunno, my friend has this problem, but that was after he changed from 20 mbps to 6mbps or something.
Port forwarding or setting up a DMZ server on your router should solve this,
Either way you'll have to set your ps3 Internet settings manually and input a static ip e.g 192.168.1.10
either way you'll need these too,
Primary dns: 18.104.22.168
Secondary dns: 22.214.171.124
Subnet mask: 126.96.36.199
Point the dmz server / Forward all ports to the ip you assign your ps3 (192.168.1.10 in my example)
In my experience DMZ is the more successful in providing an open NAT type, but it does pose a security risk to your system, as it allows for unrestricted access to and from the Internet for the device you choose(using the ip address). Don't go looking at any naughty sites on your ps3 web browser and you should be golden lol ;)
Your NAT issues should now be resolved.
p.s if you use DMZ you won't need to forward any ports for the ps3 system as it unrestricts access on ALL ports by design.
Go to this site. It shows you how to port forward.
Whenever black ops say something about a lie dont listen to it.Its trying to keep ur NAT type off.
