Intermittent attempt

31 replies 155 views Edited Jun 4, 2013

I'm going to try something here. I can't set my internet to NAT2, so I can't join an official race series. I also can't use a mike, but....

 

Here's what I'm going to attempt. I will try to get on in the evening after the kids are in bed and run a race for a SHORT time. As in less than an hour. I probably won't do any real racing because of my time constraints, but I would enjoy some good time trials, and maybe a lap or two.

 

I will post here what track I am going to be on, and what car I would like to see. That way everyone will be fairly similar. Then, I will go and hook up and see what happens.

 

First time: For tonight, I am going to Indy road course and I will be running the GT-R black to recreate the original time trial demo that we had as the (or at least my) first experience with GT5.

 

See you if you get this! I'll shut down before 11:00.

If you are a Christian, copy and paste this in your sig. In life, and especially as a Christian, in order to finish first, you must first finish. What's YOUR first place?

I'll try that as well as my internet provider.

Well, I spent 3+ hours trying to get my NAT to 2, and to no avail. I called 4 places, and consulted the board. Sigh....

Oh, well. I can still race! Going to Apricot hill with the GT-R Black. I may stay past 10, we'll see.

Make sure your PS3 is not connected to your router with some kind of switching device. Alternatively; unplug your computer from the modem, and connect the PS3 directly to the modem. That's about the only other thing I can think of that might help. If your router is an older model, they can be slow, too. I had a 3 yr old Linksys, and could only get a Nat 3, then went to a brand new NetGear, now have no problem hosting 10+ gamers. Check to see if your cables are in good shape as well.

Best of luck!

I am forced to be wireless due to circumstances out of my control. Ie, I can't hide the wire in the wall since I didn't bury it when we were constructing..... :smileywink:

Plus, the PS3 is over 20' from the router.

I do have a 2-4 year old router (don't remember), so I may have to talk myself into a new one.

Just out of curiosity, which router do you have and can you flash it with a third-party firmware? If you can, that may allow you to get a better response out of it, but it depends on why you can't get NAT2. The answer to that is crucial, in my mind.

 

What happens when you take the router out of the network and plug the console directly into the modem (if it isn't one of those combined units)?

I have a DIR-615. I plugged straight into the modem when my computers were downstairs, but that was a LOOONG time ago, so I have no clue what it looked like. I could try moving the modem, so I'll see what that gives me. Just have to have it back before the wife comes home and wants internet... :smileywink:
