Having trouble playing online

9 replies 58 views Edited Aug 14, 2010

Well it only started when I moved but I am still with shaw high speed internet, but whenever I try to play online multiplayer on any game I always have trouble on games such as fat princess, uno, zombie apocolypse, and others I always gets errors saying cannot connect to host or something similar. And for games such as NHL 10 and MLB 10: The Show I always get disconnected from the server like half way through the game. I have no problem connecting to the internet and downloading from the playstation store and going on the internet browser. But lately I've been having an itch to play multiplayer and I just cannot do that. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Usually people need to go into their router's homepage usually 192.168.1.1 and enable upnp. if that doesn't work then there are other methods.

Try connecting it directly to your cable modem and see if it works. If it does then it's most likely a port issue.
