Ever since the last firmware update, I've been unable to connect to friends of mine on any of my games, or the connections are really slow / laggy and constant disconnects.
My PS3 is set on DMZ, UPNP enabled, ports forwarded (because of other ps3 in house), pretty much everything I can think of has been done already. My DL is always around 3.6Mbps and my NAT is a constant 2.
Yet everytime I try to play ACB or ACR I get the "unreachable" errors constantly. When I try RE5 there's always "Communication Error", etc. Am I the only one getting royal pain in the rear issues since this last update? Or is there something else I can do to fix this? I want to be able to game with my friends again, but it's getting impossible to do anything other than hang out on PS Home.
And no, my friends nor I have changed our modem/router/ip/any settings whatsoever since last time we played together when it used to work perfectly.
Apparently, this is our problem, why?
Because the rest of the PS3 Community isn't complaining about it.
So, of course- dozens upon dozens upon hundreds of playstation 3's (maybe even a few thousand or more, who knows how many of these bugged ps3's are going unreported due to user ignorance of this) just happened to screw up at the same time.
This is almost as bad as the Leap-Year Bug.
If you clear both DMZ and manual port forwarding settings (write them down before you clear them), are you and your roommate able to connect and play online successfully through UPnP alone? Are you two able to go online while playing different games (i.e. you aren't both playing Assassin's Creed at the same time)? Able to go online playing the same games?
