      UPnP on PS3 N/A ????

      Hi,

      I have Sky Connect broadband package (a joke at 17 pm) with Netgear DG834GT connecting to my PS3 via Wireless.

      Connecting no problem but for some reason when I do the "connection test" on the PS3 it fails on the UPnP stage and says Not Available. This is after I have enabled UPnP, reserved an IP for my PS3, opened all in/outbound ports on Firewall settings for this IP and given it the Default DMZ Server.

      To be honest it works fine at my parents house where they have BT broadband but still using the same model Netgear Wireless Router DG834G and with these exact same settings.

      I have tried everything I can think of. I have taken off the reserved IP address, opened up all ports of IP's 2-6 in case it uses two like my old ps2 used to. Reseting the Router to factory settings didn't even help.

      Does Sky not allow this or am I doing something wrong with my actual PS3 settings?

      Any ideas?

      Don't worry about it, just leave all the settings on auto and UPnP enabled in the router and it will work fine with a NAT type 2.

      I've left UPnp turned off on my router and I'm on Nat 3 - what does this mean?

      I turned on UPnP and my network just kept crashing and I know people on here say dont turn it on - am I missing anything by staying off UPnP and nat 3 status?

      Thanks
      Paul

      With NAT 3 you may have trouble connecting to others online, you could always use a static ip for the ps3 and pop it in the routers DMZ. This will give you a NAT type 2 which will allow you to connect to everybody.
