sounds a bit fanboyis. You know you can't play games on a router

I read up on all of that jazz and it just comes out as gibberish to me.

I had to learn how to set up a Static IP and open up ports - boggled my mind to begin with. But, it does work. What console are you on --> I'll hunt down some digestible info for you.

Static IP in video form:


Static IP (reading): also explains IP for you.

Setting a static IP address on the Playstation 3 - PortForward.com

First off - Lets see if Upnp works for you. Upnp (Universal Plug and Play) is a function on your modem that automatically detects ports that need to be open. Sometimes it works like a charm, sometimes is doesn't - depending on whether your modem detects the correct ports. So --> Go into your modem and find Upnp and make sure it is enabled. {To find your modem page on your PC - go to your browser and type in "router" or "router login"}

If Upnp is still not delivering Open Nat - disable Upnp and continue reading below.

The option now is to either use Port Forwarding, or place PS3 into the DMZ of your modem. 1st option should be to go for Port Forward.

Opening up ports mean that data is able to flow unimpeded.

We now want to set up Port Forwarding.

Port Forwarding Guides for PS3 Call of Duty - Ghosts   (Select your modem and try to follow)

It is difficult to get too specific as we all have different modem/routers - which have different looking menus and interfaces. If you are having any dramas feel free to ask questions. But, your best bet could be to gather all the information and ring your Modem support number.

DMZ - is your last option - if you are still having troubles let me know and I shall explain.

CRINGE TITLE IS CRINGE

How to get faster internet. *CRINGE*

That's now how that works.

Sungirl, here's a thread that I made some time ago that avoids having to use CMD. The thread is old, two titles ago, so it may be a bit dated.

That's a great thread Fox - just given it a quick browse.

I agree. the title "how to get faster internet" is cringeworthy. I just wanted to find a visual tutorial for the PS3, perhaps I should look for a better one if PS3 users require it. The Port Forward guide to Static IP is a good reading tool.

Alas, I do get a bit frustrated at trying to find a user friendly guide that is comprehensive - especially with next gen consoles entering the fray.
