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.

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the D-Link DIR series router into the address bar (default is http://192.168.0.1). Press Enter

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the lefthand side.

Step 4: From the Wireless Security Mode dropdown menu, select WPA-Personal encryption.

Step 5: From the WPA Mode dropdown, Under WPA, select the form of WPA you would like to use.

Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while maintaining higher security with stations that are WPA2 capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used.

How to secure the wireless signal of D-Link DIR Series Router

For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security.

For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only. This mode uses TKIP cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode. To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher).

Step 6: In the Pre-Shared Key box, enter the desired Pre-shared key.

This is the “password that allows communication between you’re encrypted client (e.g. the PSP or your wireless computer) and the encrypted wireless signal coming from the D-Link router. This password must contain at least 8 characters, the characters can be anything you can create from your keyboard.

Step 7: Click on Save Settings to save your settings.
