A NAT 3 situation is connecting trough a router and not having the required ports opened or not connected trough the DMZ.

If your ISP (Internet Service Provider) is DSL, it’s essential to have your modem bridged. Using the DMZ of the DSL modem with your network router is also not a guaranteed solution. Your ISP should assist in bridging the modem.

D-Link DIR series routers(DIR-615,DIR-655,DIR-660) are UPnP enabled. If your game console is also UPnP enabled, the router will permit opening ports with the auto configuration from the console.

When the device is not UPnP enabled, manual port setup is required.

Xbox Live requires ports:
· TCP 80
· UDP 88
· UDP 3074
· TCP 3074
· UDP 53
· TCP 53

PS3 requires ports:
· TCP 80
· TCP 443
· TCP 5223
· UDP 3478
· UDP 3479
· UDP 3658 should also be opened for voice chat.

Step 1: Assign your console a Static IP Address on the Network settings. You may chose the IP – / /

Step 2: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the wireless router in the address bar (default is Press Enter.

Step 3: Navigate to the Port Forwarding page in the Advanced tab.

Step 4: Enable and name the rule and type in the IP address of the console. Include the ports with commas and dashes when in range. Or you may create additional rules.

Step 5: Click on Save Settings to apply the rule.

Step 6: Run the Network test in your console.

If Port Forwarding fails, set the IP address of the console in the DMZ page, but remove the previously configured ports.

                theme or plugin that might be able to fix
                this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
                Appreciate it!

                              • Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found
                                a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placeed the shell to her ear and screamed.
                                There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

                                She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off

                                                              I have a D-Link DIR-605L, I have configured it with static IP address from my ISP and I am able to access internet when connected to it through ethernet cable. But when connected using WiFi, I can’t access the internet. Anyone to assist with this? What should I change in the configurations?
