I plug my modem into ps3 and test connection it says type 1 but when I setup the netgear router it says type 2 wired and wireless and I even tryd puting in the port numbers in the port forwarding and it still doesnt change to type 1 what do I do
You can ONLY get nat type 1 by plugging directly into your modem
Nat type 2 is fine for going through your router
Nat type 3 is bad for the PS3
NAT types are a connection status not connection quality/speed. NAT (Network Address Translation) or in the case of the PS3; Public IP to Private IP address Translation Status.
Type 1: INTERNET<MODEM<PS3 : The IP on the PS3 is NOT on a Private network, The IP on the PS3 is Publicly accessible.
Type 2: INTERNET<MODEM<ROUTER<PS3 : The IP on the PS3 is on a Private network, all ports needed for communication are open.
Type 3: INTERNET<MODEM<ROUTER<PS3 : The IP on the PS3 is on a Private network, all ports needed for communication are NOT open. You may have issues and all features may not accessible.
There is a forth condition, but that 'normally' wouldn't happen in residential setting. You could have a PS3 with a 'Public' IP but has port access controlled by a Firewall. If all ports needed were accessible it would be a Type 1. If not all the ports were accessible I don't know what the NAT Type would result in; I'm guessing a Type 3... But that wouldn't be entirely accurate since there is no address translation going on.
