Mod edit: Some more info can be found in post #4 (the links) below.


Step 1: Setting up a static IP address for your PS3
-Find out what your router's IP is, it should be in the manual or on the box. (for example mine is 192.168.1.1)
-Type that into your web browser, and enter your admin pasword which should also be in the manual
-Boot up your PS3, then Settings -> Network Settings in the XMB
-Select either Wireless or Wired Connection
-Select Manual Setup
-Set everything to automatic except IP Address
-Then you should have to enter the following parameters:
* *IP Address
* *Subnet Mask
* *Default Router
* *Primary DNS
* *Secondary DNS
-Firstly the IP address should be your router IP but with the last value being say 10 instead of 0 or 1 (ie mine is 192.168.1.18)
-The Subnet Mask should be already filled out for you, if it isn't then enter: 255.255.255.0
-Default Router is simply your router IP address. (ie mine is still 192.168.1.1)
-To find your primary and secondary DNS your going have to walk the many meters back to your PC (or MAC) and look at that web browser I told you to open and put the router IP into
-Click on Status and you should find both primary and secondary DNS (ie mine is 61.9.242.33 and 61.9.226.33)

Congratulations you have setup your static IP!!!

Step 2: Enabling DMZ
-You know that window you just closed with the router status up, reopen it but this time select advanced.
-On the left side of you page (for me anyway) you should see a menu, now select Virtual Server -> DMZ Host
-Now you should see a paragraph about your evil router blocking your precious CoD packets!!!
-Then select Forward To DMZ Host
-Finally type in your PS3's static IP address and hit Apply or Save.

And you've finished :D

PS for you lonley men out there who watch porn on your PS3, it should be noted that porn steams 5.7% faster now aswell!!!

That's a very good and useful write-up H2.

This method isn't foolproof though: if you have a lot of devices using your router (computers, TIVO, laptops, iPhones, etc.) there is the possibility that you could get an IP conflict between your PS3 and another device, since your router will have the PS3's IP address in it's DHCP address range and could assign it to another device on the network if there is a request for an IP address while your PS3 is inactive.

It's a bit trickier, but the foolproof way is to adjust the address range that your router is offering via DHCP, and then assign a static IP address outside of that range to your PS3. For example, you could set your DHCP server to offer the range 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.199, and then give your PS3 the static address of 192.168.1.200. The DHCP settings for your router can be accessed via the normal 'router setup' web interface.

I actually found a website earlier today, and those steps u listed are identicle to what I tried on mine earlier... I used 100 for the ststic address, and the conecction test failed 4 some reason... then I set it back the automatic way and it was fine...

fukn can't win with mine... any suggestions as to why it wouldn't work using 100 as the static address? it's the ONLY thing I changed from my standard settings...

stiffy ur guide was perfect, a bit different to h2's. so i wonder wat the difference is

kobes- im sure u've picked a static IP from in between the start and ending IP

Ok, can we sorta combine this & stiffy's & get the definitive guide on how to do it. I'm still a little confused.

I tried it....but seemed like when I was hosting on w@w the game kept ending but not sure if thats treyarch's end or not? I just took it off to be safe...

on another note.....when I go to speedtest.net it says im less then 50m from my exchange but im only getting speeds of up to 2500kb/s when my connection is 8000kb/s...thats kind of crap!

Miney
19-11-2008, 07:08 PM
That is quite crap indeed mate. I am about 3.7km away from my exchange and get around 6000 out of my 8000kbps connection.

Doubt that it would be the DMZ that is making your games end. I have the same speed connection and don't have any troubles. Having said that, it has dropped out once or twice when there are dogs and artillery going at once. My connection just can't handle it.


If you are only getting 2500kbps, then your connection probably isn't good enough to be hosting effectively...

@miney yeah full credit goes to you for telling me that turning on DMZ helps your internetting....

@stiffy who has more than 10 things on their wireless network?? more to the point who has 199??? I just set mine to 18 because thats my footy number :P

@kobes did you make it the last set of numbers?

@mooks wheres stifflemeisters guide?

@ H2, can you do some more @'s?

Natzke
20-11-2008, 09:14 AM
Is this guide for people who CANNOT get their connection to work, OR for people who want to improve their connection as well?

I just set up a wireless connection last w/e and it seems to be working OK.

My new speedtest figures are as follows:

Dn - 4000 kbps
Up - 750 kbps

I notice in CoD WaW when searching for a game, it puts me as host, waiting for others to join. If you dont know already, my connection seems to be great for hosting, with 90% getting full green bars, but no one accepts my invites anymore lol.

H2Gamer
20-11-2008, 09:45 AM
It will improve your connection aswell as get more people into your games :D I used to have a problem with that...

@YNWA yes, yes i can

kobeson
20-11-2008, 09:53 AM
H2 - yeah mate, 192.168.1.100

as miney suggested, I will try putting in my PS3's ip adress instead of a static - I have my pc on 192.168.1.3, my mac on 192.168.1.4 and my ps3 on 192.168.1.2 so as miney said, I will try the DMZ on 192.168.1.2 and see how I go...

if this screws things up, I assume I can remove the DMZ setting easily enough?!?

soory - yes, am a n00b when it comes to this lol

PS - cheers for ur help H2 + miney and others :)

Miney
20-11-2008, 10:04 AM
Yeah you can just disable it again if it screws things up mate...

But don't forgot to still assign that IP address as a Static IP *:supz:

Did you set the static address using the PS3 (i.e. in the PS3 network settings) or did you add it to a static list on your router?

If that sounds confusing, it's because there are two basic approaches to setting a static address. All routers have a DHCP server built in to them, which means a device on the network can say "I want an IP address!" and the DHCP server will look at the addresses it's allowed to hand out (it's 'range') and then give whatever address is on top of that pile to the device that asked for one.

Now some routers have a very useful function built into their DHCP server: the ability to always give the same address to a specific device. It identifies that device by using it's MAC address, and then whenever that device says "I want an IP address!", then the DHCP server will give it the specific IP address that you specified. In other words, that device will always get the same IP address from the DHCP server. This is the best way to get your PS3 a static address, because you don't have to mess with your PS3's network settings at all, you just leave it on Automatic and the router takes care of the rest.

Unfortunately many routers don't offer that feature. For those routers, what you have to do is set the DHCP range on the router, and then go into the network settings on your PS3 and set a static address which is outside that range. If you go to your PS3 and try to set a static address which is inside the range of the DHCP server, you can have problems because you could get an IP address conflict. When that happens, the devices with the conflict won't work on the network until the conflict is resolved (i.e. they no longer have the same IP address).

kobeson
20-11-2008, 10:17 AM
yeah, well nothing else has 192.168.1.100 tho stiffy, so I dunno why it wouldn't work... unless it is outside of the range :S

@miney - when you say "But don't forgot to still assign that IP address as a Static IP" I am more confused again :Hangman:

I don't get how I assign it as a static IP

my ps3 is 192.168.1.2

f*ck this is impossible to grasp imo, and I don't know why, I usually pick these kind of things up ok, but am confused as to which settings I change where...

H2's guide was perfect, only when I assigned my static as 100 it didn't work... I should try it with a lower number I guess :S

AStiffBreeze
20-11-2008, 11:02 AM
H2's guide was perfect, only [...] it didn't work.
lol, that's H2 for you!

So kobes, you were able to connect to your router using a web browser right? And you saw the router's little setup page? Under the settings for DHCP, you should see the range of addresses that it is assigning. e.g. it might say:
Starting IP address: 192.168.1.2
Ending IP address: 192.168.1.254

So just looking at the last bit there, the range is from 2 - 254. What you want to do is change that range (make it a little smaller) and then go to your PS3's network settings in the XMB and give it a static IP address that is outside that range. So for example you could change your DHCP settings to be:
Starting IP address: 192.168.1.70
Ending IP address: 192.168.1.254
And then set your PS3 static address under the XMB to be 192.168.1.69.

A little bit of extra info for you: the numbers in an IP address can go from 0 - 255 (since 8 bits are used to record the number, i.e. 2 to the power of 8 = 256, and 0 - 255 = 256 separate numbers when you include zero), but 0 is used as the network identifier and 255 is the broadcast address (i.e. anything sent to the .255 address actually gets sent to every single IP address on the network). Your modem will take the .1 address, possibly the .2 and even .3 addresses as well (depending on how many different interfaces the modem/router has).

ok stiffy - no I wasn't saying H2's advice was no good, it's the best I have seen so far here... but it just didn't quite solve my problem :( - in regards to the static ip number range...

I see what you are talking about, here is my DHCP settings:

kobeson
20-11-2008, 11:30 AM
so I just change that to:
Starting IP address: 192.168.1.70
Ending IP address: 192.168.1.254
And then set your PS3 static address under the XMB to be 192.168.1.69

and that should do the trick?!?

and then add in the IP of my static (for the ps3 - 192.168.1.69) into here:

Yeah it's pretty good for the actual connection i am paying for. It's just a pity that i don't have a high Upload speed. If i did, i would be able to host flawlessly. But i don't. Because of fucking Bigpond! *:minigun:


Kobeson, let us know how you go with that mate. I have another suggestion but will wait to see whether you come up with the goods or not before i go confusing you again. Lol!

Easy solution, shoot off you genitals to prevent yourself from breeding..... IMO just cancel DCHPPFBNJFSDNFOA or w/e its called and put ur IP to 15 or sumething surely you dont opperate 15 things on your network....

Miney
20-11-2008, 08:24 PM
Not sure what you could do with your Media Server mate. That was another thing i had problems with. But after fiddling around with a few things, it began to function.

What Media Server do you use? Windows Media Player or TVersity? If it's WMP, try going into the sharing options and just double-checking that sharing to your PS3 is still enabled. Or perhaps attempt to add another sharing device to it or something. I'm not really 100% sure mate...

kobeson

My static setup was already fine but enabling DMZ made all the difference !!

GraphicX
21-11-2008, 09:34 AM
@ kobes: if ur media server isn't fixed just try restarting it, it should automatically assign a new address to it (leave the ps3 on when you restart it). *if still no joy you'll have to assign an ip to the media server too or change the ip on the ps3 & dmz.

kobeson
21-11-2008, 09:47 AM
yeah, tried restarting it heaps of times, and I don't know how to assign the ip with Windows Media Network - can't find anywhere to do that :(

gonna try removing the DMZ settings...

Good to hear mate.

To be honest, i have found that enabling DMZ works for some people and makes things worse for others. It's just a matter of how it works for you.


Kobeson, perhaps you might be better off just leaving it Disabled. Depends on whether you are happy with it or not. It probably doesn't help that the patch has just came out and screwed things up as well. I doubt the effects are anything to do with DMZ.

AStiffBreeze
21-11-2008, 12:33 PM
@kobes I use a Mac so don't have any experience with Windows Media Server. With your machine as a DMZ Host there shouldn't really be any differences given that it's still connected to the same router. You can try toggling the UPnP setting on your PS3 (if its off, turn it on, or vice versa). Your PS3 should have the same subnet mask, DNS server and router address as your PC. Beyond that it will come down to settings in your Windows Media server.

See if you can ping the PS3 from your PC. On your PC, open up a CMD prompt and type "ping 192.168.1.69". It should start giving you response times (in milliseconds), which means it can talk to the PS3 OK; if it says "host is down" instead then you need to review the network settings of the PS3.

kobeson
21-11-2008, 03:48 PM
thanks for your continual tech support stiifmeister :)

I have reverted to my old settings, with no DMZ enabled - and my WM network is working again, well except for 1 thing...

I can view photos fine, but when I click on a video file, I just get a blank screen... all I can do from there is press circle to go back...

fuck this is all shitting me!!! I should have never bothered lol I haven't done anything wrong anywhere, I am sure of that, but it has been drama after drama for me...

:Hangman:

PS - here is my results from pinging my PS3 via my PC, like you instructed:

I'm not sure what can be read from that, but <1ms ping? wtf?!? sounds pretty good to my n00b arse...

now, just to get the video streaming to work again :S miney? any suggestions?!?

Miney
21-11-2008, 04:08 PM
now, just to get the video streaming to work again :S miney? any suggestions?!?

Wow. You are having identical problems to what i had.

When i first set up my Media Sharing through WMP, i had the same problem. Music and Photo's would work no problems at all but Video's wouldn't. Now i know you would be pretty distressed right now Kobeson because all the porn that you wasted this month's usage on would be un-watchable at the moment....Lol.


Anyway, check that your Anti-Virus doesn't have a Firewall or anything and if it does, turn it off and see whether that works. Don't necessarily leave it off, but it would just be interesting to see whether that might be interfering with it. It did for me....

Other than that, i really have no suggestions to be honest...Just keep trying. One day it would work fine for me, the next three it wouldn't. Then if i randomly tried it again, it would work. Really bizarre.

kobeson
21-11-2008, 04:20 PM
yeah, fkn shitting me!

the thing is, it was working fine until I changed the ip's and enabled DMZ, then with the static ip on the PS3 the media server didn't work at all, and now that I have reverted it is just the videos that have changed...

I found the ports I need to forward for the WMS - I never did this before, but it might help...

would the ip for the server be the same as my router? ie 192.168.1.1? or my pc? 192.168.1.3?

GraphicX
21-11-2008, 04:51 PM
everything on the network requires a different ip (ps3, router, pc etc), i think when you put the ps3 into static ip you accidentally used the ip for your media server & that's what has upset everything. *it should have chosen a new ip though when you restarted it unless it has a static ip as well.

Natzke
21-11-2008, 05:20 PM
I was given a static IP from my ISP and i use the same one for PS3 & Pc (well in PS3 network settings i search for wireless networks and my network pops up, no need to enter it manually). I think the router handles multiple connections to your modem rather than each device having a separate IP address (in my case anyway)

AStiffBreeze
21-11-2008, 05:50 PM
@natzke The static IP from your ISP is an entirely separate thing. That refers to your public internet address, not your local private ones.

@ kobes The IP address for your Windows Media Server will be the IP address of the PC that it is running on. You have both the PC and the PS3 getting their IP addresses automatically now, right (i.e. via DHCP)? Nothing is configured statically any more? Just double check that's the case, and that all of your devices have different IP addresses. Remember, just because your PS3 was getting the IP address of 192.168.1.2 before, doesn't mean it still will (that's why static IP addresses are needed in the first place!).

Anyway, the problem is almost certainly with Windows Media Server, and it's most likely quite a simple one to resolve. Check out this thread at the US playstation forums for tips:
http://boardsus.playstation.com/playsta ... 464&page=8 (http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3media&thread.id=44464&page=8)
I notice you can allow/deny specific devices, maybe try denying and then allowing the PS3. This miht have been the reason it didn't work in the DMZ as well.

Natzke
21-11-2008, 06:04 PM
But i dont use separate IP adresses for my PC and PS3. OR when i do a network connection on my PS3 does it automatically give me a unique IP address?

AStiffBreeze
22-11-2008, 02:14 AM
They must have separate addresses, or neither will be able to access the network. If you have them both set to get their IP addresses automatically, then the DHCP server will make sure they get different addresses. If you have them set to static IP addresses, then they MUST be different addresses.

Step 1: Setting up a static IP address for your PS3
-Find out what your router's IP is, it should be in the manual or on the box. (for example mine is 192.168.1.1)
-Type that into your web browser, and enter your admin pasword which should also be in the manual
-Boot up your PS3, then Settings -> Network Settings in the XMB
-Select either Wireless or Wired Connection
-Select Manual Setup
-Set everything to automatic except IP Address
-Then you should have to enter the following parameters:
* *IP Address
* *Subnet Mask
* *Default Router
* *Primary DNS
* *Secondary DNS
-Firstly the IP address should be your router IP but with the last value being say 10 instead of 0 or 1 (ie mine is 192.168.1.18)
-The Subnet Mask should be already filled out for you, if it isn't then enter: 255.255.255.0
-Default Router is simply your router IP address. (ie mine is still 192.168.1.1)
-To find your primary and secondary DNS your going have to walk the many meters back to your PC (or MAC) and look at that web browser I told you to open and put the router IP into
-Click on Status and you should find both primary and secondary DNS (ie mine is 61.9.242.33 and 61.9.226.33)

Congratulations you have setup your static IP!!!

Step 2: Enabling DMZ
-You know that window you just closed with the router status up, reopen it but this time select advanced.
-On the left side of you page (for me anyway) you should see a menu, now select Virtual Server -> DMZ Host
-Now you should see a paragraph about your evil router blocking your precious CoD packets!!!
-Then select Forward To DMZ Host
-Finally type in your PS3's static IP address and hit Apply or Save.

And you've finished :D

PS for you lonley men out there who watch porn on your PS3, it should be noted that porn steams 5.7% faster now aswell!!!

hey H2. Worked through all of this again to see if DMZ might help my hosting in COD4. However, immediate issues, when I get to...

-To find your primary and secondary DNS your going have to walk the many meters back to your PC (or MAC) and look at that web browser I told you to open and put the router IP into
-Click on Status and you should find both primary and secondary DNS (ie mine is 61.9.242.33 and 61.9.226.33)

Mine are blank, there are no figures in these fields, see below...

http://i277.photobucket.com/albums/kk54/YNWA01/Picture1-14.png

So kinda got stuck. Looking at the second section, enabling DMZ, I get really lost, as nothing comparable to your guidance seems to exist in my router set up. The only area that mentions DMZ is this....

http://i277.photobucket.com/albums/kk54/YNWA01/Picture2-7.png

Does that look right? Basically add the PS3 Static IP into "Default DMZ" and its done? There seems to be nothing here to compare to your notes for this section, i.e....

-On the left side of you page (for me anyway) you should see a menu, now select Virtual Server -> DMZ Host
-Now you should see a paragraph about your evil router blocking your precious CoD packets!!!
-Then select Forward To DMZ Host
-Finally type in your PS3's static IP address and hit Apply or Save.

Any specific thoughts or advice based on what you can see above? Cheers dude.

24-11-2008, 11:02 PM
You've got it right YNWA, you put the static IP address of your PS3 (whatever you chose for it) into the DMZ Server bit and you're good to go. In terms of figuring out what your DNS server/s should be, just check that on a PC which is connected to the same internet connection. If it's a mac, go into apple menu --> system preferences --> network settings..If you're not sure where to find it in network settings then tell me what version of OS X you're running and I can give you more detailed insturctions. Anyway, when you find the DNS server/s you'll need to enter that into your PS3 when you give it a static Ip address.

DNS servers bascially allow you to type in a website address as english words rather than numbers. Every web page on the internet is actually just an IP address (like the one you just assigned to your PS3); Domain Name Servers bascially keep a little table of what english words map to which numerical IP address; when you type in google.com for example, DNS servers get your request for google.com, figure out what numerical address that is, and then send the numerical address back to your computer so that it can retrieve the google page for you.

This is what is it says on my PS3 settings page, without me having changed anything yet. I notice that there are numbers there for the primary & secondary DNS... one seems to just be the same as my routers IP, the other is all 0's.

if u cant find ur DNS that way YN, u can find out of ur ISP
i'm with TPG so i went on their site, signed into my account. then i went to ADSL settings and it was listed there

Cheers Mook but nothing comparable for iinet, not obvious to me when I looked anyway.

Okay your gonna have to ring your ISP for the DNS settings because your mac gets them from your router and your router gets them from the ISP....

to set dmz it seems you have to click default dmz server and put in the static ip you set up....

I'm afraid H2 is right, you'll have to call your ISP and get the DNS address off them.

YNWA01
25-11-2008, 08:24 AM
Er, if I told you I didn't trust anything ppl who live in NZ say... would that be a sufficient excuse?


LOL.

So when I call iinet and speak to some tech monkey, do I just say, "give me my DNS settings or I'll rip you a new a-hole", or is there something else I should mention about what its for, etc? What I mean is are there only two specific sets of figures for DNS that exist, the primary and secondary, not 100s of options or something. I don't want the tech monkey to make me look stupid(er).

spiltek
25-11-2008, 08:31 AM
Just tell them youre setting up a static IP and you need the DNS server adresses, they'll give them to you lol

spiltek
25-11-2008, 08:35 AM
Save yourself the money YN I found the DNS server setting on the iinet website

203.0.178.191

Now where it shows DNS server (in your screenshots) enter the above address into it, and you should be right!

YNWA01
25-11-2008, 09:01 AM
Fark your good Spils. I had a look but didn't see it.

So I just add this set of numbers to Primary and Secondary on my PS3 settings and then I'm looking good, as I have all the other info (I think?). Or do I need to add the same figure into my router settings online too, again for both Prim & Sec?

spiltek
25-11-2008, 09:05 AM
dont worry about secondary just primary on ps3 settings and enter your ps3's ip address into the dmz server line on your modem. Dont forget to tick the box next to it either, and you should be good to go!

for anybody who has VOIP, enabling DMZ will not allow your VOIP to function properly... I enabled DMZ over the weekend, noticed the difference it made instantly, had a few games, and when I went to make a phone call it wouldn't work... tpg told me enabling DMZ had stopped VOIP from working properly...

is there any other way to fix the problem of randoms slowly joining your games, without enabling DMZ?

Bad news boys, after every game when we're in the lobby for the next one, my ps3 freezes for a 10 or so seconds. Sometimes it drops out of the playstation network, sometimes it stays hosting. Anybody have a similar problem?

Uh oh. Has this only happened since you did the DMZ thing dude? And in which game version, W@W or #4.

Hmmmmm. I'm a little wary of making things worse with my connection set up in game (if thats possible) by messing and that kinda feedback makes me even more so!!!

McFuku

all this talk of DMZ and portforwarding and static ip's, does it only relate to wireless connecting to ur ps3?? or wired also??

you can do it with both, not sure if it only benefits one or the other tho

YNWA01
25-11-2008, 01:54 PM
I'm wired vis an ethernet cable Fuku. But I'm pretty sure its nothing to do with how you are connected from router to PS3, its more to do with how your router 'talks" to your PS3 and the game servers on that interweb thingy.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong tech dudes.

Layzie86
25-11-2008, 01:59 PM

DONE IT!!! LOL. The house is still standing, the internet still works and my in game matchmaking / lobby connections seemed a bit better. Have got into lobbies no worries all night, not been made a "lonely" host once all night, but then not been made host at all. LOL. That never used to happen before!!! Most games were with 2 bar as overseas hosts, but got one local 4 bar, a couple of 3 bars with Aussie servers. Will monitor with interest the connectivity quality, etc and see how it goes, off to see how it fairs in W@W now too.

to get to my modem settings page i type in the browser: 10.1.1.1 is this the ip i should registar with the playstation??

Yeah well for the 'Router IP' part in your PS3.

dutch47
26-11-2008, 06:22 PM
mcfuku my router was set up for those address ranges as well are you with telstra? as that is there default DCHP range and depending on your router can be changed if you want you just need to renew the DCHP lease on all devices that conect to the router. but you may not need to you can still set up the DMZ just use the ranges you have
alse if you have a 2wire router (telstra issue) then when you set up a DMZ in the router it will automatically assing a Static IP to your PS3 outside of the DCHP range like what stiffy said before

McFuku
27-11-2008, 09:12 PM
@ dutch sorry m8 but i didnt understand a word of that, id really like to try this dmz thing but iam honestly clueless about this, iam with optus and i have the supplied netgear wireless dg834gsp (ps3 wired), i dont know about ranges etc and iam unsure about putting what numbers where?

dutch47
27-11-2008, 09:43 PM
mate use the same steps as h2 and stiffy have told you to do but instead of using the 192 number use your 10.0.0.1 range.

basically your router/ISP uses a different set of numbers as IP addresses that's it so you should be right

and the eassiest way to tell if your DMZ has been suscesfull is by the NAT type your PS3 says once you test the conection

NAT1 = all post open
NAT2= behind a fire wall "May need to open some ports"
NAT3= hardcore fire wall will be lucky to get online paly

McFuku

is there any definitive msg or anything saying ur dmz is working or not?

Snickersma
04-01-2009, 05:58 PM
yeah I'd like to know that as well as i just did the trick!

So Im assuming that as my PS3 is now set to "static" 192.168.1.10 .. and that is the IP which I now have entered in the enabled DMZ window in the Port Forwarding section of my routers menu = that it is indeed doin it..

Mind you havent noticed any great difference yet! in the games etc .. although my first test game I got a straight up 15 kill streak! so gotta be pleased with that!

Test would be i guess if you go to join an game with some AUF.. and then the lobby fills with randoms!?!? unlike what used to happen which was sweet fark all :retard:

Miney
04-01-2009, 07:26 PM
If you did it all properly like you said you did, then that should happen mate. Once you get made host of a lobby, it should fill up rather easily :supz:

04-01-2009, 07:27 PM

Tank1252
04-01-2009, 07:49 PM
So, i'm still a little baffled by all this. Is there a definitive step by step guide that we can follow. Reading thru this thread, i get bits & pieces all over the place, & seemingly conflicting information. I'm just not game to do it without a foolproof guide. I don't wanna stuff up what i have got atm, which sorta works (slowly, but it works). I'm sure it's in all of AUF's interest for someone to compile it.

YNWA01
04-01-2009, 08:29 PM
I guess that was what H2 tried with the original post Tanker, but as with all these things it seems like different ppl see the process slightly differently!! Which is helpful (not!!) LOL. But overall I pretty much followed H2's guide on pg1 and that seemed to work out OK for me, but only once I'd found the DNS settings (thanks Spils) and the DMZ bit on my router settings which was buried a bit so not easy to locate first off.

My advice is to get all your router and PS3 IP details, etc, etc and open a new thread asking for help. Me taking screen shots of all my stuff really helped Stiffy, Miney, H2, Spils and co. guide me through the process. If you did something similar you I'm sure you'll find an AUF'er who'll walk you through it... has defo helped me host in COD4 and getting my lobbies to fill up ASAP, mostly playing HC modes only mind you...

Tank1252
04-01-2009, 08:50 PM
I know you're right mate, i'm just worried i'll f*ck the whole thing up & end up with no ps3 or computer internet access...which i just can't afford to do. Being in rural NSW i'm not sure how quickly it could get sorted...

YNWA01
04-01-2009, 09:23 PM
Yeah, I was totally the same dude, convinced myself I'd screw something up but it all worked fine and as long as you keep a record of all your settings pre-change you can always go back to them afterwards if it seems to have done something you don't like. Kobe had a problem with something but it wasn't related to his net connection or anything. I think it was to do with his media centre - I assume running from his PC, but otherwise it seems like a relatively stress free change. It may help that I'm in a Mac at home, don't know though. I guess the main question is how much COD your playing, how much you want to be host and whether you're having dramas with connecting or filling your lobby when you play. If you're OK on all these why mess at all? ;)

Miney
07-01-2009, 11:19 PM
Yeah that's dead right mate. That's what i have been telling people. If it isn't broken, don't fix it. However, i have never seemed to be able to hold myself to my own words. I am always stuffing around with the network and internet connection settings which is why i found that some things work and others don't.


Tank, as YNWA said, if you aren't playing much and it doesn't bother you, then don't take the risk. On the other hand, if you have a good connection which is capable of hosting, use it to it's fullest and get that DMZ Enabled :uzi:

Snickersma
07-01-2009, 11:26 PM
I just did it and apart from not saving the details in the modem (D;oH!) the first time it now works and I my hositng abilities have improved a lot.

In a nutshell - read the first post - but:

- in the PS3 network settings manually set an IP ie mine was 198.168.1.10
- then get into the modems menu (see the instruction manual) and enable the DMZ setting - usually found under the Port Forwarding settings... add the IP you set for the PS3 to the IP for the DMZ - then its basically done!!
- Unless you running like 10 net-connected devices in your house you should be ok..! Or set the IP range to 198.168.1.11 to 198.168.1.255 if your worried about conflicts.

If that doesnt work and nothing works just set everything back to auto and make sure DHCP is enabled so your router throws out IP addresses to everything attached to it.

Miney
09-01-2009, 09:59 AM
Good to hear you sorted it out mate. It really isn't that hard. Sounds like you have it spot on.

However, did you make that IP Static so that when your PS3 is off, it doesn't assign that same IP to something else on the network?

Hey guys good reading about this.............

I had the same probs for ages and I was just about to give up online gaming if I couldnt sort this s**t out and help others by hosting.

I had NAT 3 and couldnt connect to certain people and it used to drive me nuts!!!!!!!

I have a netgear wireless router and fucked if I could change the settings to get NAT 2. I tried everything. I even found a youtube video with step by step instructions and still couldnt get it to work....................

The only way I can get it to work is plug my PS3 directly in to my modem via the ethernet cable which basically takes the router out of the equation.

The funny thing is I am still NAT 3 but I have absolutley no probs hosting now on W@W and MW................

Yeah no one else in the house can use the laptop or PC but who cares!!

Try this, hope it works for you and remember its all about the upload speed!!

I'm with bigpond 20000d and 1000u.

Yeah DMZ'ing it much better. You're better off doing that.

Basically port forwarding opens up the ports that you specifically open. Enabling DMZ opens up EVERYTHING so that everybody can connect to you, etc. ;)

You'll have to find the DMZ settings tab in the User Interface or something. It's usually under 'Routing' or something like that. It's hard to tell because i have a D-Link not a Belkin and therefore the User Interface is different. Do a quick google search on your router's model number and that or search how to DMZ it....

DMZ is not going to help, DMZ's are just to remove port blocks. Has this just started happening to your recently punjabi?

Speedtest.net is giving you the same results it always did? No static on your regular phone line? Any building work done nearby recently (esp. on the street)? Any power outages recently? Bad electrical storms? Had your modem unplugged for a while?

What about other online games, are you noticing any lag in BF1943 for example?

Also what NAT type does your PS3 tell you it is? Go to Network Settings, Settings and Connection Status List, and then scroll down.

@ gogeelong: Not if speedtest is still reporting the same speed I wouldn't think. If BF1943 runs without lag then it's most likely a port issue, his modem settings might have been dropped or wiped...

You can try disabling UPnP (causes issues for some people). What's the current setup in terms of ports on your router: do you forward ports, or is your PS3 in the DMZ? Or are you unsure?

try ring your internet company see what they can do.

if they cant do anything i dont no what else to try mate, because ive tryed it all, new router, cables, upgrade internet, new discs.
now on a adsl2+, 20000 download and 2000 upload plan and still cant evan get passed the fucker.

Ah yes, a common problem. You need to upgrade your New Zealand to an Australia, that will fix it. :p

In all seriousness, are other kiwis complaining of this problem? There could be an issue with the Aus - NZ cables.

Doesn't sound like upgrading your plan or anything will change this. It was fine before so there is no reason why it shouldn't be fine now. If you haven't changed any settings or anything, i would suggest ringing your internet service provider and asking them whether there is anything wrong with the connection in your area and if not, what they can do to help you with it. Doesn't sound like anything you have done specifically.

However, your connection has always been rather shit. I remember playing with you on both COD4 and W@W where one minute you would have four bars and the next you're on red ping and impossible to kill. Imo, kill the lag switch ;)

The upgrade is quite straightforward and should solve all of your problems. Just visit this site (http://www.citizenship.gov.au/).

Sounds like it's probably an ISP issue, one of their routing tables could be a bit screwy. I'd try hard resetting your modem and making sure your PS3 is in the DMZ just to be sure the issue isn't at your end though.

EDIT: It's also possible that your ISP has started filtering international P2P traffic. They're the only ones who'll be able to answer that for you.

Sweet. Have you guys had problems with it?

I remember when I first got it for some reason it kept dropping out on me when I had W@W, I had a linksys and that was good but gave that to my sister when I stopped playing online.

I played Uncharted 2 beta fine online with the DLINK, no drop outs, and now that I have FIFA everytime I play online it always disconnects me after every game I play, it pisses me off but I think it's a problem on EA servers too....

I just want to know how you guys have set it up.....

ATM my range is 10.1.1.2 - 10.1.1.254

in LAN clients I have set up my PC as 10.1.1.2
PS3 is 10.1.1.209

on my PS3 my settings are manual and it's set to 10.1.1.209

on router I have DMZ enabled to my PS3 IP address.

Haven't had many problems with it mate. I used to have a similar issue but figured out that it was more a line issue rather than my router. They are a good unit and very reliable, mine hasn't missed a beat in about 3 or 4 years. I would suggest looking at some of your filters/splitters on your phones, etc. Perhaps one night late when you're not expecting any calls, just try disconnecting the phone and everything else on the line and just play with the router plugged in. If that fixes it, there is interference with the phone happening in the line somewhere.

Seems like you have done everything that needs to be done in regards to your settings and DMZ and whatnot. Not really sure what else it could be. What ISP are you with? Have you got the correct DNS Server Settings?

I had a similar problem with Fifa 08 (a long time ago i know :p) and i found on a forum that if you changed the player on the loading screen, for some reason or another it affected your online gameplay and disconnected you from games a lot after you finish your game. Was just some little tweak that everybody seemed to know about at the time except me. This was when i first got my PS3. I highly doubt this is the case with Fifa 10 but was just mentioning it :p


After all that, i would suggest replying with whether or not you have the right DNS Server Settings and if you do, then unplugging your phone when practical. Post back with your progress ;)

thanks heaps for the help Miney :)

Yeah I think you're right it must have to do with my line then because a few weeks ago I my router's ADSL light wouldn't come on, so I contacted TPG(my ISP) and theyr an me through a few tests, said everything on their end was fine so they contacted Telstra to check the line to see if there was any fault...

After about two days the internet started working again and then TPG rang me saying Telstra had done tests and it was all fine there was no problem which I think is dodgy, they were probably doing some shit for those two days and just told me it was fine....

But anyway, last night my first game online it disconnected after I finished the game, restarted the game then I played heaps of games online without being disconnected, it was working fine so no idea now I guess I'll try it again tonight and see if it keeps happening

No worries at all mate. Glad i could be of some help at least.

Yeah i had a very, very similar problem mate. My internet was fucked for about a week or two. I was getting download speeds of around 50kb/s where i was normally getting a solid 650kb/s. I rang up Bigpond and they said that there was nothing wrong on their part and that it must be something wrong with the filters/splitters in my home. So i unplugged all them and was still getting the same problem. Then they sent out a technician to see if i had it set up properly (wankers), which i did so he did fuck all and got paid for it. They said they couldn't do anything and a couple of days after it was back to normal again. I think you're right, they were just fucking around with it and didn't want to tell anyone.

Sounds good mate if you get the router model and make, etc. it makes it a lot easier to help ya. It could just be that you're not saving your settings properly. I used to do them and whenever there would be power loss or i would turn off my router to restart it, they would all reset back to factory settings. That was until i figured out there was another button i had to press before the changes actually saved for good and became default.

What model is your modem?

IP address will be your PS3's IP address. Default router will be your modem's IP address (unless you have it in bridged mode and are using a separate box for routing).

DNS servers translate domain names like apple.com or smh.com.au into IP addresses so that your devices can actually talk to them. Domain names exist solely to make things easier on us humans, the actual devices all actually work via numerical IP addresses. The DNS servers keep a database of which domains point to which IP addresses; you type a domain name into your device, it contacts a DNS server to lookup what IP address it should be contacting, and then the actual contact with the remote location starts.

The primary DNS entry is mandatory because without that you'll get a "domain name could not be resolved" error when you type in smh.com.au. If you type in a public IP address you'll still be in business. The secondary DNS server is optional and is just there in case the primary goes down or is congested. DNS lookups constitute a massive percentage of the total Internet traffic so DNS server loads are a hot topic.

In terms of what your primary and secondary DNS servers should be, as a home Internet user you'll generally get them automatically from your ISP. You can also use an open DNS server like the Google one/s, but be careful because there are big security concerns if you use a dodgy DNS server. Don't use anything other than your ISP or Google's DNS servers. And by google I don't mean do a google search for one, I mean the one actually run by Google.

Just on this, both my router config's only has option for 1 computer IP address to be on the DMZ how do you get around this if you have more than 1 PS3 on your LAN as I do as well?
What I have been doing is assigning the same static IP address etc for both PS3's so either either can pick up on the IP but if both PS3's were online at the same there would be a network conflict, so what is the work around for this does anyone know?
Or would you have to port forward all the ports for 1 PS3 that couldn't co exist on the DMZ that is taken by the other PS3?
Also I ordered the Billion 7800n and am awaiting it, does that have option for multiple DMZ IP address's on the LAN?:dupe:

Also trying to turn off DHCP and make everything connected to our home network with static ip address's turned out to be a nitemare, thinking it would be easy was a bad thought, need some help with doing that, has anyone done this?
Because I found that I was getting IP conflicts within the network while using DHCP, which confuses me because I thought that was the whole idea of this function too prevent that happening?

Both the DMZ and port-forwarding are for one IP address only. If you have multiple IP addresses that need to simultaneously connect then you're stuck with NAT and the potential problems that go with that. The only surefire way around it is to get multiple public IP addresses from your ISP (and that's a whole new level of routing complexity).



Also trying to turn off DHCP and make everything connected to our home network with static ip address's turned out to be a nitemare, thinking it would be easy was a bad thought, need some help with doing that, has anyone done this?
Because I found that I was getting IP conflicts within the network while using DHCP, which confuses me because I thought that was the whole idea of this function too prevent that happening?
If you have a DHCP server it will assign addresses that are in its DHCP pool (see the two links in post #4 of this thread). So long as you have your DHCP server properly set up, and all devices on your network are set to receive IP addresses via DHCP, the only way you should ever get a conflict is if you have more devices on your network than you have address in your DHCP pool, or if you have your DHCP lease time set to be too long. In that case you either need to increase the addresses in the pool, decrease the DHCP lease time to something sensible, or stop using 250+ IP based devices on your home network.

With a DHCP server, if you set a device on your network to have a static IP address within your DHCP address range then you can have conflicts. That's why you don't do that ;)

Again, post #4 will sort you out.

TBH a lot of the home networking specific stuff I don't know that much about because it's not something I deal with professionally (obviously). So if you're after tips on getting two PS3s to play nicely (simultaneously) on an ADSL connection then Frenchy and Sarum have more experience than I do…

I once wrote my own network protocol in Java though (many moons ago) so I have a good grasp of the basics :)

Stiffy!!! I need some help pleeeeease. I have tried everything so far from this thread, but I am still stuck on a NAT type 2. I have the Billion 7800n and I have created a Static IP, the PS3 always keeps the same IP and MAC address when I restart it and I have typed in the IP address into the DMZ and applied changes. What am I doing wrong?

isnt NAT type 2 supposed to be alright?

also did the DMZ for my ps3 today. is it still safe to do this??

I thought Nat Type 2 is good to go and will cause no problems gaming at all? It's only Nat Type 3 which indicated blocking by a firewall or the likes.
I have the same router as you and I also have a Nat type 2 with my PS3 static and in the DMZ.
I am presuming you are trying to get a Nat type 1 which would mean you have to get a public IP address from your ISP, but I think you only do that if your internet connection isn't being shared with anything else on your home network?
Also I don't think you can change your Nat from 2 to 1 with just settings alone?
If my info is wrong then I'm sorry, and I too would like to get a Nat 1 lol.

Here's some info on PS3 Nat Type and understanding it http://netnix.org/2011/09/06/understanding-ps3-nat/ (PS3)

I've had NAT type 2 since i went on line. im pretty sure it should be fine, maybe the UPnP thingo is mucking you around.

Just try heaps of different setting etc but make sure that you always remember the settings that you changed so that you can always set them back to what they originally were in case anything screws up.

A few questions:
Are you on ADSL, or cable?
Do you have a separate modem and wireless router (i.e. two separate boxes), or a combined unit?
What's the exact brand and model number of your modem and/or router?
What IP address are you using to connect to your modem and/or router?
How did you set up the DHCP server in terms of addresses, and what static IP address did you assign to your PS3?
What IP address does your PS3 tell you it has?
What IP address did you add to your DMZ?

So i ahhhh wasn't in DMZ mode at all apparently, i musn't have saved it last time so have set it up all over again, will have to wait and see if this fixes GT5 nights, may also help playing BF3 if i ever get back on it.

I can't find a manual for your modem online, so can't help too much. You might have to just follow this (it's a DMZ guide for your modem):

Cheers Jords, I was searching for TG782T (and getting no results) without realising that the T suffix was just to specify it was a special model made for Telstra :o

Does anybody know why my PS3 randomly went into NAT3? It's been NAT2 and just today my red dead told me that I was in NAT3 and my connection would likely be poor, etc. I did a net test an sure enough NAT3. How do i change it back? As far as I can tell, my ps3 is in a DMZ and I thought you couldn't get NAT3 in a DMZ?

Trust me mate, I've been looking for about 2 hours before I posted. Everybody says either a) put it in DMZ (which I'm pretty sure I have) or b) enable upnp on your router (it already is).

They also mentioned to give the PS3 a static IP address and register the static Ip in the DMZ.
You did that too?
