sooo ive been at this problem for a while, ive looked up every tutorial and they all say to go into your browser and access your router settings but whenever I go to do that, my browser wont open the page! this is very frustrating and was wondering if there was any other simpler way to do this because all I want to do is shoot some fools. much help would be appreciated

  1. First the Nat Types:

    Nat Type 1: Means you’re connected to the internet without a router

    Nat Type 2:Means you’re connected to the internet via a router and connected properly

    Nat Type 3: Means you’re connected to the internet via a router but not properly

    To fix the issue, do the following:

    If your NAT Type 1 or 2 then you don’t need to change a thing, everything is working as it should. If you’re NAT Type 3 then you’re in the right place and should try these steps. There is no guarantee what worked for me will work for you and since we all have different routers and I cannot offer support on your personal situation. The best I can do is tell you what worked for me and hope you can put the pieces together.

    In most cases you will have to assign your PS3 a static IP address. I can’t tell you step by step how to do it to your router but hopefully now that you know what it’s called you can find your way. You’ll need to know your PS3s MAC address to assign a static IP. To find your MAC address simply go to

    Settings > System Settings > System Information

    You should now see your MAC address, I suggest you write it down.

    Once your PS3 has an static IP address you need to open up a few ports. In my situation I simply went to

    Applications & Gaming > Port Range Forward. I use a LINKSYS ROUTER! YOU’LL NEED TO FIND YOUR BRAND OF ROUTER AT PORTFORWARD TO SEE HOW TO OPEN PORTS!

    Ultimately you need to open ports:

    TCP: 80, 443, 5223

    UDP: 3478, 3479, 3658

    Once you’ve done this turn off your PS3 and power cycle your router. Run another Internet Connection Test and you’re hopefully NAT Type 2.

    Congratulations your PS3 is now NAT Type 2 and fully functional!
