I get type two... here is my full story, i had my original ps3 started out having moderate nat type playing cod, it was type 2 nat when doing a test... i somehow configured the router to be open and it still remianed type 2...   Now i have a new ps3 and my nat type is back to moderate and can't communicate with friends on cod or other games my nat type is type 2... so basically i cant remember how i got my original ps3 to be open because i wanna do it to this one as well...

Threads don't work that way. They're left open so people can find solutions to answered problems through the forum search.

For a Linksys router, you should check the NAT Type and UPnP status in the PS3 Internet Connection Test. Ideally you should have NAT Type 2 and UPnP enabled. If you have NAT Type 2 but UPnP not available, then you need to turn UPnP on. You do this by making sure you have the newest software update for your Linksys router, then then making sure UPnP is turned on in the administration tab of the router settings webpage. The upside to UPnP is that it provides automatic port forwarding for all the devices and all applications or games on your home network, in contrast to DMZ or manual port forwarding where each device needs setting up.
