im Sturgling with the nat type 3 Problem
Please Please anyone who knows the Solution to my problem ill be very thankful to him

Who is your internet service provider?
How is your PS3 connected to the internet? Trace it all the way back to the wall.
i Heard Someone Says that you must do the ip things n open ports in the Router etc... etc...
But i don't know the "" Real Stips to do that
my Router is netopia-7000 From Motorola
n Bout my internet provider i dont live in the us \ uk Then u Wont Know it
Mostly I want to know how you're connected to the internet -- cable or DSL or something else. Another useful bit of information would be the exact model number of your Netopia gateway, because Netopia 4000 is a family of different devices. You can find out the exact number from the sticker underneath the unit.
Try going to the European PlayStation Community. Maybe someone else is in the same boat as you.
im connected now through the wirless because if i connect an ethernet cable from the DSL it wont let me even sign in .!
if i didn't say that but im Subscribed to the Fiber-optic service
is that nearly the reason for the NAT TYPE 3 .?
+ Please if anyone knows the steps to solve this problem please tell meh -_-
You can have a look in my FAQ about NAT Type 3. The steps vary from setup to setup.
You can also try searching Google for the name of your internet service provider and 'PS3'. Chances are someone has the same setup as you. I'd research your setup, but I have work today. Hopefully you can leave enough information for someone else to walk you through it. Good luck.
