Re: PS3 is causing my Wireless Router to

Jan 1, 2008
i'm confused as why do i still get a nat3 on the test connection, when i have upnp enabled on router and ps3?
 
do i need to disable any firewalls in modem or router?
 
and on making  a static ip address, as long as i enter the ip address on the ps3 settings manually does that make it a static?

yes blah, it makes it a static if you enter everything manually on PS3, even if you have DHCP on your router.

Re: PS3 is causing my Wireless Router to disconnect everyone, and drop conne

Thanks for your suggestion.
Here is a recap on what should be done:

First,
A) Assign IP address to PS3, instead of running DHCP.
B) Use correct DNS addresses (DNS provided by your ISP should work, in theory)
C) Try disabling WEP/WPA, etc. security, and start with no-security.

then,
1) Disable UPnP on Router (Under Administration / Management)
2) I will forward those ports as indicated on Support Knowledge Base to my PS3's IP address
3) I guess if I forward those ports, DMZ is not required. (Or should I still set DMZ as PS3 IP even with Port Forward?)
4) Lastly, try disabling Media Sharing...

Wafflebird
The information you provided is lengthy, but useful for new users, who are not experienced with port forwarding. If you tell them "forward ports" they would ask "how". So your information is very very good, portforward gave nice illustration and step by step info. At the end, it is same as schu's link to PSN Help site.



As I mentioned before, without doing any kind of forwarding, or changing anything on my router, it works flawlessly, but if there is any other computer connected to the router (wirelessly) PS3 will just drop the connection, and cause other laptop to drop as well...

So whenever I have to use my PS3, I just turn off my Laptop and use PS3. Again, that could have been due to port forwarding.

It is pretty slow like wafflebird said, but it is managable. I will try running bandwidth speed test and report back how slow it is. Then again, my connection is only 768 Kbps (Cheap Verizon DSL), but it is not as slow on my Laptop.

I will be back home tomorrow, hopefully, and will give all those solutions a try.

Regarding NAT, here is what I found in another topic:

NAT Type 1 - Directly connected to the modem.
NAT Type 2 - Connected to a Router with no problems
NAT Type 3 - Connected to a Router with interference.

Setting your PS3 to DMZ disables all interferences.
Here are another reference sites to consider reviewing:
  1. Vibrant Reality - PS3 Linksys WRT54G Solution
  2. PreGameLobby - How to get NAT2 on PS3
  3. Ultimate Guide to Fixing your NAT
  4. PS3forums - NAT Type Thread with Glossary
Then, there is also a way to give Priority to PS3 from router, which is described in this post: LINK

i read somewhere that the modem has an ip address, and it gives the router a different ip address, which is making a nat3.  how do i make them both have the same ip address?

blahblah9 QoS should work as you are setting the mac addy of the ps3 priority to high. Try reseting your router, set up your isp info, security, etc. Then set your ps3 to a static ip on your local network. Enter your ps3's mac addy into QoS on your router, set priority to high, and save.

how do i set up a static ip on your local network for ps3? you mean by just manually entering an ip address when doing network setup on the ps3?
 
also, do i need upnp enabled or disabled, and any thing entered on port forwarding?
