Im having difficulty with turning my PS3 Nat type from #3 to #2. Im using a Netgear wireless router model # WRN2000v2. I have read through the forums on how to change this and I feel like I have done everything properly. I changed the IP on the PS3 to a dedicated number, ending in .250 but I run into trouble when I attempt to set up the IP on the router on the PC. The PC portion im sure is where I am making mistakes, or some little detail along the way. If anyone could help me with this problem, for this specific router, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thanks for you time in responding, I look forward to seeing how to fix it.

Check out the Thread below, it has some useful information in it, including changing NAT Types.
BRIT-KO... Thanks for your post but it still didn't work. I tryed some of the things suggested. Ive given my PS3 a DMZ... i guess its like its own dedicated IP address. But that didn't help any. I don't get the option for ports, or a list of ports, so I had to enter all the ports between 80 and 8080 or something like that to try to open those. Still didn't work. I haven't got a clue... does anyone else have any idea or links to pages or something that will help me out. Stupid Netgear router is probably my problem!
