Cutting a long story short... I changed from Perlico to Eircom recently and hooked up the Eircom router last weekend. Since then playing online has become somewhat of a nightmare. Getting into games takes ages and I rarely stay in them for more than a few minutes.
I found the problem there this morning, in the PS3 connection status menu it lists my NAT Type as Type 3 where it was Type 2 before.
How do I configure my new router to get it to type 2 NAT? It's a silver netopia one:
Appreciate the help.
P.S. I've tried setting the routers firewall to Low or else Off completly and this made no change
