      Playstation 3 Online Problems Connecting To Players

      Hi everybody im new to the site found it through google when trying to search up information etc anyways i have major problems on my PS3 connecting to certain players i often get booted from games which is really annoying me yes i play alot of online gaming so all these disconnects and issues are really starting to get me down now cant even join friends.

      I was with Sky when i first moved in then switched to Virgin Media then i was getting worse service and came back to Sky Broadband and anytime i ring up Sky with a problem they always tell me the same thing SKY DOES NOT SUPPORT ONLINE GAMING AT ALL. So my question to everybody here is this true? so if this is the case then why am i even with Sky for the internet if they cant cater to my needs for online gaming?

      Below is a speedtest and i dont know much about Ping and all that stuff but im told mine is high

      Your ping is on the high side which could result in lag but wouldn't really create dissconects. That sounds like a problem on your line. If you could go in to your router settings and post some stats, I'm sure some clever people on here will be along and talk you through them.

      A few more questions.

      Is a problem with getting in to friends lobbies ? Not actually full internet disconnect.

      What is your nat type on your PlayStation and games ?
      Is it strict/moderate or open.

      What games are you having trouble playing ?

      Re: Playstation 3 Online Problems Connecting To Players

      Right now that im more awake than last night i shall explain what problems im having properly. Most games i can join my friends and other random people with no issues i dont get booted from them etc but yeah i do get some LAG thats like you said down to the high PING that i have. Rockstar Games im having big major problems with and sometimes EA games but at the moment its with R* games that im having the problems with. Grand Theft Auto IV Red Ded Redemption Max Panye 3 Max Panye 3: i join a random lobby and i see everybody in there and about 10 seconds into it im booted tryed getting invites from other friends and i recieve the same thing. Red Dead Redemption: ALERT You were removed from your session and returned to Free Roam due to connection issues with other players. Grand Theft Auto IV: The connection to one or more players has been lost....

      When i go on games like Call of Duty on there main menu its says my NAT is MODERATE
      when i do a settings test on the PS3 it says my NAT IS TYPE 2

      I dont get booted from the PSN network when this happens only from that games Multiplayer

      Cheers for the info.

      Sounds like you would benefit from putting your ps3 in the routers DMZ.

      Here's a link to the instructions. GUIDE: PUT YOUR PS3 IN A DMZ - AfterDawn: Forums

      I had the same issues as you in some games and this cured it.

      If this works for you you might want to ask sky about Gamer Profile. It lowers your ping times and really helped me. It's a bit of a pain getting the right person to help but ask them to do it anyway and see if it helps. If it doesn't, they can always change it back.

      If you have any other questions about DMZing your ps3 just post back.

      Re: Playstation 3 Online Problems Connecting To Players

      Friend did this about a year ago put my PS3 into DMZ so that it opens up all ports it didnt make a difference since then my router has been reset back to default as even he said it wasnt doing anything unless he did it wrong lol. Its just getting really annoying its a shame that ISPS dont have a remote Assistance service that they can help you on also if im correct im sure SKY dont even allow you to open your ports properly the way they should be. I have the Black Router of theres im told its old and that i should be asking for a Wireless N router that they charge you for 35 i think.

      I shall try and do this DMZ thing and i prey that it works

      Give it a go. Nowt to lose. Your right, sky don't deal with problems like this. I rang up and got no joy and had to learn to do it myself. They only deal with faults. Let us know how you get on. I've DMZed 3 ps3s with this problem and they all worked great. Port forwarding also works but I wanted the quicker fool proof option. I'm no good when it gets too complicated.

      If you tick the DMZ box first it should let you edit it.

      Re: Playstation 3 Online Problems Connecting To Players

      Right done everything from that guide now guess only time will tell pretty sure ive done this in the past lets hope it works. Quci question how i know if my NAT TYPE is OPEN? only way ive known is go onto Call Of Duty and see what it says on there but thats never spot on 1 minute it can be MODERATE on OPEN so is there anywhere i can double check this



      Might ring SKY up tomorrow and keep asking about Gamer Profile till i find somebody who knows what there talking about
