    Hi there,
    I was wandering if you could help me with a problem of mine, I’d be very very grateful.
    Okay, so here it goes: Basically, I have a new ps3 slim 120 GB, offline is fine, I have 100 percent connection(wifi), but when I play online I get disconnected almost every game. But I only have 2 games. Gta Iv and Fifa 10. Both of them lag severely. And in Gta some players are invisible to me but visible to everybody else.
    When I contacted my router manufacturer, they said it is not a problem with the router as I have an xbox 360 which works fine, and so does Gta on that. I have opened ports and put the ps3 into DMZ. I have also tried wired connection but nothing seemed to help. I think it may be the servers of the games, but then why is it affecting me, and not everyone.
    So, please help me and reply. Because I have rang all the customer services, and not been helped at all. I really regret buying the ps3 now, those are my 2 favourite games, and I’m having problems. The 360(my brothers) works fine. Grr...
    Please help, ty for reading.
    Please please reply.
    From Nabeel.

    Yes, I have. It hasn't helped. I've posted on numerous other forums, I've even contacted PLaystation, so I was wandering if anyone who may have had this problem, could help me.

    More than likely its to do with your NAT type... If it says anything other than "open/NAT type 1" or "moderate/NAT type 2" they you won't be able to play online game, a friend of mine has this problem, and you can't really fix it as it's to do with your internet provider.. For instance, majority of the time I have "moderate" and it still lags a bit, so you might wanna look around for a new internet provider..

    Sorry if that's not what you want to hear..

    PS, if you have a friend that has the "open/NAT type 1" then get them to add you on to the online game.. I do that and it works for him..
