Problems regarding online gaming - Strict NAT Type - Tried everything

Hey there, I'm currently using BTHomeHub2, and I have a wireless connection for my PS3.

Currently, I've encountered a problem while playing Call of Duty - Black Ops. I've recently discovered that my NAT Type is strict, which sort of made sense, as I could barely ever hear team chat, and found it hard to join matches.

Now, what I've tried:

I've tried disabling Firewall.
I've put the PS3 into DMZ mode, which only gave it DNS problems.
I followed the steps on BT's help page, which suggested giving the PS3 one IP, which didn't work.
The PS3's IP in unique from others on the network too.
Tried disabling DHCP to give all devices a static IP, but this caused problems.

I'm tearing my hair out guys :/

Anyway, I gave Port Forwarding a shot, but I'm not [i]that[/i] technical. My NAT Type is 2, which is generally regarded as 'good'.

Anyway, best wishes, hope someone can help me Smiley Happy

You might be lucky with portforward, however if it goes the way many have posted here with problem, i would forget Cod series on the Ps3, check the link.

Re: Problems regarding online gaming - Strict NAT Type - Tried everything

I had the same problem but found one way around this problem  but you will need a modern warfare 2 disc.

What you do is load black ops check your nat type eject the disc while the game is at the menu screen, now put

your mw2 disc in straight away load it up go to multiplayer and check nat type it should be open, now eject the disc and reload black ops now check your nat type it should be open.

It is a lot of hassle but once done it should stay open unless there is new up dates etc or your hub is reset.

Re: Problems regarding online gaming - Strict NAT Type - Tried everything

I would agree about it.. If you want to use the PS3 online I would say use the ethernet connection and not the WiFi.. I had a PS3 since day one and on WiFi is very very slow and drops connections. Hey and I am not even with BT yet ... The moment I plugged in the cable it works fine althought I am not a online gamer but tried once or twice huge difference..

Re: Unable to play Black Ops on PS3

If you are suffering with your NAT type being strick the same as i was, put in a copy of MW2 let it load up then put black ops back in, i know it sounds daft but it worked for me, hope it does for you

Strict NAT

I have Home Hub 2.0

 

When playing Dead Space 2 Multiplayer on PC I always notice that my NAT Type is set on strict and that I hardly ever find any games since I cannot connect to many other players.

How do I set my NAT type to open?
