How to put your Ps3 into a DMZ(reduces disconnection and lags)
 

 
Figured I would post this, because alot of people complaining about lag and discconnects in various games... some of the lag isn't you but some of it very well could be... so this might help some of that... (I did this myself and rarely get lag, not sure if this is the reason or if it's my Great ISP Connection)



The unfortunate fact is our connections are way too random to be solely relied on, we’ve got to take matters into our own hands. My connection was the same, disconnection after every 10 minutes over and over. It was excruciating however all that instantly changed once I put my PS3 into a De-militarized Zone (DMZ).
What a DMZ does basically is open up your PS3 to any and all traffic off off the internet coming from your router. You should NEVER try it on your PC but it’s perfectly fine for the PS3.

It is a relatively simple procedure that shouldn’t take up much time but will instantly change your online experience.

Start off by turning on your console and going into Settings —> Network Settings

What we’re about to do here is give your PS3 a static IP address so that your router can always locate it with ease.

Now check the Settings and Connection Status List and note down two things
•The IP address
•The Default Router

Now it’s time to make some changes to your Internet connection settings, the option is right there in the network settings sub-menu.

Do the following as prompted
•Select ‘Custom’
•Select your connection type. Better to have a wired connection for optimum performance.
•Select Auto-Detect at the next screen and continue to the IP Address menu.
•Here select manualYou’ll now see a screen with 5 options:IP Address
Here enter the number you noted down before but change the last digit. Think of the last digit as the number of things connected to your router, think of the what that number could be and change the last digit to well beyond that so there’s never a chance of a conflict. Like if you think it’s 20, change it to 50. It should look something like this — 192.168.1.50It only goes up to 255 so keep that in mind though and remember only to change the last digit. Once you’ve settled on a number don’t forget this IP. You’ll be using it soon.

Subnet Mask
Don’t change this from 255.255.255.0

Default Router
Just put in the value you noted before.

Primary and Secondary DNS
You can use the same values as the default router here or you could google DNS settings that are more suited for PTCL

•For MTU – select Automatic
•Do not use a proxy server.
•As for UPnP, I’ve had better experiences disabling it but it has known to be better for other people so no harm in trying it. If you have problems with your mic, then disable it.
•Review the list and test your connection.

Don’t panic if it fails, there’s one last step. You’re going to need to go over to your PC. Open up your router settings by typing 192.168.1.1 (default for all PTCL routers) in your browser bar.

Go into Advanced Settings –> NAT –> DMZ Host. The option should be in the same place for other modems, just fiddle around a bit. You’ll get a screen like this once you select DMZ host


[pic - click to view]



Ok so you remember that IP I told you to note down? The one you entered under IP address in your PS3, well just enter that here and you are done. Save and apply the router settings and reboot it along with your console.

Hopefully you’ll feel quite a lot of difference afterwards, better latencies, faster matchmaking in games etc.

We have a winner...lol that sh*t pissed me off

But after searching around I think the GTA issue is NAT type...it's a Rockstar game and just like RDR if everyone in r party isn't the same NAT type...then you aren't playing together

When u use DMZ it stunts all other connections to your router

Just use an ethernet cable....you'll have an even better connection that doesn't interfere with others
Not everyone has this option...I'm not running no cable down two floors to the mancave, wireless works just fine for me, and I get pretty mcuh no lag at all and I NEVER get disconnects

Your ps3 is the only device you use in your house? Read what I wrote again.
No but read what I wrote again...I have nothing to connect the PS 3 to in the mancave... (no ethernet port down there) it's the PS 3, 360, Ps 2, and a TV down there...along with a Pool table and other non electronical stuff...so again i'd have to run the wire down two floors to have it connected via Ethernet cord...I have to do wireless, which works for me because my connection is nice enough + my PS3 is in a DMZ so my lag is non existant on my end... this might not be for everyone but those who are wirelessly connected this is a great solution

Sometimes I can't tell if ur trolling or u really don't understand
What don't you understand about my post? If you use an ethernet cord it has to plug into both ends correct? I can't plug it into the PS 3 and then have the other end just sitting on the floor and go online like that...I HAVE to be Wireless...there is no Ethernet cord option for me...

They do have "wireless" ethernet cables. Has anyone tried this? Does it increase PS Store download speeds?
