Hi PS3 community, I am having a hard time playing the Playstation Network while the Xbox is online. The issue happened when I bought my Xbox 360 Halo Edition just a few days ago and I connected it immediately to my router. Now when I play Call of Duty Black Ops 2 (or any other game) on my PS3 while the Xbox is connected to the internet simultaneously, I have a NAT Type Moderate instead of Open. When the Xbox and the Playstaion are online at the same time the Xbox has an Open NAT Type. However, when the Playstation is connected to the Playstaion Network while the Xbox is not connected to the internet, I have a Open NAT Type. My Playstation method of connectivity is wired while as the Xbox is wireless. I have tried everything from portforwarding to DMZ my Playstation console but with no success. Any suggestions. Thanks.
Someone posted something about this problem a while back, but I have a PS3 and an XBox on the same network; and I have not seen any problems connecting with either one. There are other people that do also, and it is rare for anyone to report a problem with this. What do you mean by an "Open" NAT? Normally if you are using a NAT router then it will either be Moderate, or Strict, depending on how much port filtering is in place. Open NAT basically means that you have no NAT at all, but then you could not have two devices connected to the Internet at the same time; unless your ISP issues multiple IP addresses per customer, which is very rare for residential Internet service.
