    Try turning on UPNP on your router it should set up the ports automatically then for you. If not you'll have to google PS3 and port forwarding to see how you do it.

    Try the UPNP thing first, if it doesn't work do the following

    Follow this link

    And select your router from the list

    on the next page select
    PS3 NAT Type 3 to 2

    and follow the instructions


    PS. - Ignore anyone who tells you to put it in the DMZ - Those people use sledgehammers to crack walnuts.

    What's wrong with sledgehammers?

    Anyway, sometimes the standard procedures doesn't work at all, and that's due to some incompatible/cheap routers. I got myself a new router from my ISP, and now it works flawlessly, and I didn't have to do squat to get a Nat 2.

    Nat 1 = open, for wired connections
    Nat 2 = open, for wireless connections
    Nat 3 = strict (online will be affected negatively)

    Nat 1 is a direct connection to the internet
    Nat 2 is a connection via a router (or similar device)
    Nat 3 is a usually a connection through a router where the router's security settings are blocking some or all of the traffic
