As you are on a 192.168.x.x network you are highly unlikely to achieve a NAT type 1.

Not being a gamer, I have no idea why the gaming fraternity have a concept of different types of NAT and what the criteria is for each.

NAT is network address translation, it is a mechanism to translate packets arriving at a device with a public IP address and direct them to a device with a private IP address. There are not different types of that process.

Did you read the article I posted a link to?

To have NAT type 1 on a PS you effectively have to be directly connected to the Internet, not on a private address. If you are using a router, it would need to be in bridge mode with only your PS connected - not possible with a SH2 (and a bad idea generally.)

I have no idea why game console manufacturers and the gaming community hijack defined terminology and use it for something else.

NAT is NAT, there are no variants.

I have no idea what it is they call NAT of various types.
