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!

I've never had an issue with my Netgear WNDR4300

Would anyone mind giving me a hand with this? I've never had issues playing online with other games, but Borderlands 2 really doesn't like me. I've tried on my own and failed, so if someones around to help out, i'd love the assistance.

If you are running DD-WRT you only need to have UPnP open, no need to worry about ports.

 

On that note, if your router is capable, I highly suggest you upgrade your router to DD-WRT and unlock all its glorious features.

 

You can check here if your router is DD-WRT capable: http://www.dd-wrt.ca/site/support/router-database

What will your glorious dd-wrt-enabled router do that my Cisco Linksys E4200 won't do now, with respect to port forwarding?

Hello everyone. I haven't had time to read all of the previous posts, but my issue is that my status states that I'm operating with NAT 2, but when I perform a connection test, psn fails. I also have the problem of not being able to chat/game with certain friends, resulting in crashes when the attempts are made. Does anyone have any advice? I've opened all ports and enabled UPnP.
