Anyone else getting this a LOT? Whenever I try to join a certain person's game, I get this message. Normally, since I can join someone else's game just fine, I'd just think there's a problem with his connection, and be done with it... But that's not the case. I actually got a game going with the guy a few times. Now, for some reason, I can't get ANY game with him going, and I'm not sure why...

its not the PSN .. its your connection to other people. Most likely you both have firewalls, blocking each other.

try going into your router admin and change the DMZ to your ps3s ip.
(if you dont know what im talking about ... go play xbox more nub)

...

I don't own a 360, but I'm almost tempted to pretend that I do, and that I don't know what you're talking about.

well, because your honest.

Im assuming you are using a wireless router. first off.

Find out what kind of router you have. Then go to google. search for "your routers name" ip address admin

find it.

if you have linksys, i can tell you that it is, 192.168.1.1

now go to your address bar, and type in that number. Just the number, nothing else. A box will appear asking for a user name and password. The typical user name is empty, and the password is "admin"

Once you are in the routers firmware, navigate around to something that is similar to "applications and gaming" then find the DMZ tab. (actually just remember where this tab is, you'll need it later)

Now this is where it gets fun. You have to figure out what your PS3 ip is. So, go to status, local network,and open the DHCP table. This shows ALL wireless devices that are using your router.

Now, find your ps3's name. Then look for its IP address...it will be something like "192.168.1.103"

If it is 103 go back to the DMZ tab and enter .103 into the box.

This will allow you to host games if you previously weren't able to. This is useful in online gaming where a host is needed, such as RE5 and Killzone. Also PC games like starcraft, warcraft, diablo, etc.

However, if youre a security nut, this might seem outrageous.

Dinky, I'm assuming that only affects the PS3 right? It worked for me, but I don't want my laptop open for virus rape now.
