Having a closed or limited NAT on your gaming console will cause a variety of issues.

The Playstation offers Type 3, Type 2 and Type 1 NAT results. These break down as follows:

Type 1 – Connected directly to the internet (no router/firewall). Should have no issues.

Type 2 – Connected through a router properly. Should have no issues.

Type 3 – Connected through a router without open ports or DMZ setup for Playstation. Everything should function properly, but you may have connection, voice chat or other issues.

To obtain a NAT type 2 please ensure the following:
  1. Your router is NOT double nat’d (connected to another router or modem/router). You can tell this by checking your D-Link’s routers WAN IP address. If the IP address starts with a 192, 169, or 10 this usually means your modem is also acting as a router and is more than likely causing the problem. You would need to contact your Internet Service Provider/ modem provider to put the modem in bridge mode or to have them disable its routing features.
  2. If your router is connected direct to a modem and is getting a proper public WAN IP address, you may need to open ports for the PlayStation 3. Typically TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP ports: 5223, 3478, 3479, 3658 need to be open.

This tutorial guide will show you how to set up a VPN on your D-Link router DIR-842 with the L2TP protocol. After setup, you may connect any number of devices to the VPN.

Note: L2TP/IPsec provides weak security benefits and should only be used for anonymization or for changing locations.

This tutorial was tested using D-Link DIR-842 (Firmware Version: 2.02). Please note some D-Link routers accept only IP addresses and not ExpressVPN server names, while others (e.g. the 225 models) don’t support VPN clients. ExpressVPN cannot provide support for these routers.

Before you begin, you may wish to make note of your default internet settings. This will help you revert to your original internet settings when the VPN is not needed.

Note: Make sure you have the latest firmware for your D-Link router.

 

SIP ALG allows devices and applications using VoIP (Voice over IP) to communicate across NAT. Some VoIP applications and devices have the ability to discover NAT devices and work around them. This ALG may interfere with the operation of such devices. If you are having trouble making VoIP calls, try turning this ALG off.

 

Step 1: Open a web browser and enter http://dlinkrouter.local. or http://192.168.0.1 into the address bar. Enter your password and click Log In.

 

 

Step 2: Go to Features and then click Firewall. Click Advanced Settings and then click SIP to disable it.

 

 

Step 3: Click Save.

IMPORTANT: D-Link does not guarantee the compatibility of all USB storage devices.

 

Step 1: Open your web browser and type in http://dlinkrouter.local. or type in the IP address of the router (default – http://192.168.0.1).

Step 2: Enter or select the username (admin) and enter your password (blank by default), and then click OK or Log In. The password is case-sensitive.

If you forgot your password, you will need to reset the router back to the factory default settings. Unfortunately this will remove any settings you have and you will need to reconfigure your router.

To reset your router, use a paper clip and press & hold the reset button (usually located on the back of the router) for 10 seconds and release. Allow 1 minute to reboot. The default IP address of the router will be 192.168.0.1and the password is blank.

If you are connecting wirelessly, you will need to reconnect your device to the default wireless network after the router reboots. The default Wi-Fi network/password may be printed on the label on the bottom of the router or on the included Wi-Fi Configuration Card (newer models).

To reconfigure, refer to the Quick Install Guide included with your router or download the PDF (click Close and then click Downloads).

 

Step 3: Click on Settings and then USB Sharing.

 

 

Step 4: Enable Windows File Sharing (SAMBA), then click Save.
