  1. NAT Type*
     	Check how the PS3™ system is connected to the Internet. This information can be used to judge the ease or difficulty of connecting to other PS3™ systems when using voice / video chat or the communication features of games.
    
    Type 1: Connected directly to the Internet
    
    Type 2: Connected to the Internet via a router
    
    Type 3: Connected to the Internet via a router
    
    With type 3, it may not be possible to communicate with other PS3™ systems, and voice / video chat and the communication features of games may be restricted.


    Normally, I can get Type 2 just by enabling UPnP in the router.

    yes upnp is turned on on my router and my other wouter(my wireless one)
  5. You can always assign your PS3 a static IP address and put it in a DMZ that you create on your router that is directly connected to the internet.

    If your router has options for "strict UDP endpoints", you can try changing that setting. Other than that, not sure what else you can try.
