This is what's in my router. I have this translated to my PS3. It does work and I have NAT Type 2. But after I shut off my PS3, I turn it back on and it's NAT Type 3. I then have to restart my router and set up my connection settings all over again to get in back to NAT Type 2. I'm so confused.

OK... lets start over.  I need the following info

 

Modem: Make/Model

Router: Make/Model

 

And are you using a PC(Windows) or Mac(OSX) to respond on the forums?

On your PC, login into your router via a browser... http://192.168.2.1

 

Goto > LAN Settings

 

Under DHCP Server what is the info you have for this:

 

IP Pool Starting Address >

IP Pool Ending Address >

For your PS3 you will use IP: 192.168.2.130

 

  1. On the PS3 XMB, go to: Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings. Click this, and it will take you to the setup. This will disconnect your connection, accept.
  2. The next page will ask you to select a method. Either Custom or Easy.  Choose Custom.
  3. Select either Wired or Wireless.
  4. Select the operation mode. You can just let your PS3 do this automatically, so select "Auto-Detect".
  5. Now we get to the IP Address Setting. Here you will need to select "Manual".

    Now you fill in the following:

IP Address - This will have the Static IP address - use 192.168.2.130
Subnet Mask - This should always be 255.255.255.0
Default Router - This is the Default Gateway you looked up earlier. 192.168.2.1
Primary DNS - I always use OpenDNS:  208.67.222.222
Secondary DNS - OpenDNS secondary server: 208.67.220.220
MTU - Automatic
Proxy Server - Do Not Use
UPnP - Enable

 

Press X to save the settings, and the PS3 part is done.

 

On your PC

 

  1. Go to your Router Configuration Page using your Browser.
  2. Goto the DMZ section of your router
  3. Insert the PS3s Static IP: 192.168.2.130
  4. Save all your settings.

At this point I would power off the router for about 30 sec... once its back up restart your PS3 and then check your connection status.

 

Should be NAT2

This worked to get it to NAT Type 2. But the problem of it going back to NAT Type 3 every time I turn off my PS3 still exists. 

 

After I restart my router it goes back to NAT Type 2. This is so weird.

Have you tried applying the latest firmware for the router?  It must be your router.  I'm assuming when you look at the PS3 connection status(even when you get NAT3), the IP you see in the PS3 is the same static IP you put in earlier.  One thing that has the "potential" to freak out the router is having UPnP enabled on the PS3 and in the DMZ... it shouldn't matter and I have never seen it do that.  So you could disable UPnP in the PS3 to see if it makes a difference.  But I would start with the router firmware regardless.

 

But yes I agree, quite weird.

If you're using a NetGear router, forget about it.  Its not going to work.  I have spent countless hours trying to get mine squared away....I'm a network engineer. I have tried opening all ports to everything, putting the PS3 in teh DMZ, ...everything I can think of.  The only thing that worked was plugging directly into the modem...but who wants to do that? Defeats the purpose of having a router in the first place.

 

Just go get a linksys or a dlink. They work OOB (out of box).

 

Here is what I use..cheap and it works!
