      Using PS3 with mixed results. Mainly I believe to port forwarding issues.
      Since adding my PS3 into the DMZ it is vastly improved. I don't know if this is the right thing to do security wise, but connection wise it was right.
      The only thing is I would like to have lower pings.

      Re: Well For All Those With Gaming Issues?

      I've only really played MotorStorm online and not had any problems.
      I've not had to do any port forwarding or work with the uPnP either.

      Having said that now i'll probably start having a mare.
      if your exchange is quiet in terms of Sky BB or even general BB usage does that help? i don't think i stay in an area of which is a hub of online gamers if I'm totally honest....
