      It will only be a port issue if you have Upnp disabled on your router. It is enabled by default.
      Can you use the internet browser or bbc iplayer on the ps3 or does that not work either?

      If sony have given you specific ports to open on your router then go ahead and create the exception rules in your routers firewall. Alternatively you can set up a static ip address on your ps3 and add it to the DMZ on your router.

      Re: Port forwarding ps3 on sky bb

      I found instructions on the net to change your IP address however i got lost half way through as the menu's on my PS3 were different to what was on the help document. My PS3 keeps picking my sky router so wont let me change IP address. Also keyed in my IP address in the net however the password admin for the sky router doesn't work!!!

      The username for the router is admin and the password is sky.

      To set up a static ip address on your ps3 do the following:

      1. Boot up the PS3 and go to Settings | Network Settings on the XMB (Cross Media Bar).

      2. Select Internet Connection and make sure it is Enabled.

      3. Go back to Settings | Network Settings on the XMB.

      4. Select Internet Connection Settings, select Yes when a confirmation screen is displayed stating that you will be disconnected from the Internet.

      5. Select Wireless

      6. Select Custom.

      7. Select Auto-Detect.

      8. For IP Address Setting select Manual and use the following:

      ip address: 192.168.0.212
      subnet mark: 255.255.255.0
      default gateway: 192.168.0.1
      primary dns server: 192.168.0.1
      secondary dns server: blank

      9. MTU - Leave set to Automatic

      10. Proxy Server select Do Not Use.

      11. UPnP make sure and set it to Enable.

      12. Test Connection

      another screen and states SSID
      It will want the SSID of your router, which is shown on the router label and in the wireless settings. It is in the form of SKY12345. Enter that and you should pass to the settings Exdee gives above.
