I bought The Last of Us when it first came out. (I actually preordered it) ever since I bought the game I have been unable to connect to the multiplayer. It shows messages saying; unable to connect to game session, problem with host manager, error downloading config files, etc.... I love the game and it is a standout PS3 title but I want to play online. I have talked to people from Naughty Dog and they cannot help. Please help me enjoy this game for all that it is, multiplayer included. If you have any solutions or know someone who could help let me know in the comments.
Reset your router?
Delete all game data? (NOT YOUR SAVED DATA)
Check your network connection settings?
These type of messages you're getting tells us that the error is from your end.
I did all of the things you suggested. Sorry, if I was not clear. I actually talked to some Naughty Dog employees via the forums and they gave me some advice about resetting my router, deleting and redo loading my data, etc. none of their advice seemed to help.
I don't know then. All those messages suggest a network problem in relation to your connection.
Hey i was having the same problem until i found out that some internet service providers use a DNS that does not work with the game. To get online just go to your internet settings and manually put the below DNS settings in (do not test connection once done) then start game and it will work.
primary DNS: 126.96.36.199
secondary DNS: 188.8.131.52
I have NAT type 2. Not sure what the DMZ or DNS is. Not really a big computer guy, when it comes to technical issues.
I have edited some info on my previous post that might help you out.
NAT2 is fine.
you can enable DMZ mode in your router settings. refer to your routers manual on how to access it. you will require a login & a password - usually default like 'admin', 'password' etc. depending on the manufacturer.
usual router settings addresses:
Linksys - http://192.168.1.1
3Com - http://192.168.1.1
D-Link - http://192.168.0.1
Belkin - http://192.168.2.1
that said, DNS is one of the most common problems with PSN/PS3 games imo. you can change your DNS servers in Network Setting on your PS3. there are many public DNS addresses, like google public DNS:
primary - 184.108.40.206
secondary - 220.127.116.11
hope this helps.
