How to change NAT type on Westell A90-750018-07

I do hope that I'm in the right section here. I'm sure that if I'm not, an admin will move this to the right place.

Clarification Request
Sadly

With all the PS3 network trouble I will not tackle this one.

HOWEVER you may want to put your PS3 into the DMZ of the router. And again, this is something I can not help you with given the details so far. But it is a solution I've used.

not ps3's fault

it's my router. i called playstation today and they gave me the port numbers to enter into my router. the psn is fine. as I said, I just need to know which numbers go where.

Just sharing.

Putting the PS3 address into the DMZ fixes that without any fuss.

I wonder if you are asking folk to find and read the manual to this router? If so, supply a link to the manual for members to read.

happy to try that

I just need to know how to do the DMZ thing. Know of any site that gives me steps?

Looks fine but rather long.

For years the instruction (without access to the router manual) is the simple one line "put the PS3 into the DMZ of the router."

Why the link goes into other area is a mystery. If I were to guess it's to change all those settings back to stock.

does that mean....

that both do essentially the same thing? DMZ-assuming I did it right-was sooo much easier. Just assign the PS3 an IP and add it to the router DMZ. Why is the other option-port matching-even considered?

Why!

Because other folk may need something else in the DMZ. It's really the fast fix while the owner catches on guru networking merit badges (please smile,.)
