No help at all from sky(nat type strict ps3/ps4)

[ Edited ]
Just phoned sky for help on my strict nat type on all call of duty games. My ps3 was strict and now so is my ps4.
All they said was there was nothing they could do and wasn't there problem. Told I have to google it. Great advice for all the money I pay to sky. It started about 6 months ago when my broadband connection was dropping every 10 mins or so. They sorted that out no probs after a week or so. If I connect to next doors wifi the nat opens up and can invite friends to party's.as soon as I change back to my wired connection strict again and cannot connect any more
Any help on here would be appreciated.

Re: No help at all from sky(nat type strict ps3/ps4)

I have numerous consoles and mainly have problem on ps3 and our new ps4! The thing is I have tryed all the solutions, port forwarding, with fixed ip on consoles, upnp on and off, putting them in the dmz and still received moderate nat status! Is there any new solutions for this issue?

Yes mate, with only ps4 on the network! Moderate every time! We joined sky on 29th November the day ps4 came out funnily enuf, and I've never had a open connection on either ps3 or ps4! The xbox360 sometimes has a mod connection but is normally open.

I followed the instructions in the first link. Wasn't an exact guide but easy enough to follow. It was the only one that I could get to work.

I've finally got an open ps4 nat type by putting in dmz with all the ports forwarded for the same ip addresse! How this works I do not know as I thought dmz bypassed all of that any way but will only work with the ports opened as well!

Re: No help at all from sky(nat type strict ps3/ps4)

I'm looking for a step by step (idiot proof) guide to help me portforward for my PS4 on my Sky Hub Router (the black box shaped router). My NAT type on COD GHOSTS is pretty much stick on strict after 3 years on previous games and PS3 at being moderate.
Any help would be gratefully received.

Re: No help at all from sky(nat type strict ps3/ps4)

I already forwarded all my ports for the ps4 when destiny messed up and now my ps4 reads NAT TYPE 2 but the COD game reads NAT TYPE Strict.

 

I called Sky the first time, they were completely unhelpful. I have no idea what to do with this but I can't join a party when my nat behaves like this. Yesterday it said NAT TYPE OPEN and I havent changed anything!!!

Hello,

 

If you have a dynamic IP, and if this has changed can also make it strict. I've noticed some ranges give open NAT and others strict. I've had to reboot router a few times to get a decent IP

 

DMZ etc didn't work :smileyvery-happy:
