    need some help, ive lost patience with this.

    when i try to connect to a room online, i get the error 774. bit of googling has come up with because im connected to the net through a router, it reduces my nat type.

    so i need to forward ports to "bypass"? my router. ive now plugged the ps3 directly into the modem/router aswell.

    ive no idea how to do this.

    ive rang sony, and they told me the ports i need to forward are-
    tcp - 80, 443, 5223, 10070-10080
    udp - 3478, 3479, 3658, 10070.

    this was as much help as he was offering, to enter the ports, he said contact my router company, which are closed till monday.

    ive a netopia 3347nwg modem/router.

    ive followed the guide on portforward.com, http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Netopia/3347NWG/PS3_Gran_Turismo_5.htm and put the extra couple of ports in aswell.

    i downloaded the port check tool from the same website and it says all the ports are still closed.

    i still have the same problem when i try to enter a room.

    anyone else able to help me?

    Who's your internet provider?? If it's Eircom you will have to contact them I had problems with trying to play online games its to do with the firewall or something like that

    If you havent got it enabled already on your router, try enabling the upnp service. It should enable all the ports you need.

    The router should actually allow you to put you PS3 in DMZ so that all ports are open to that IP address.
    Eircom are using there own firmware,which basically dis-abled the use of TCP/UDP port forwarding and DMZ,even though its available on the OEM firmware,which you can't change to as its locked..
    I just set my router firewall to off,I have it like that over 8 months without a problem,just make sure security type is WPA-PSK,its nigh un-hackable,and they have to be within range of your signal to do it.Realistically no one will even try or succed in Ireland.

    Open your browser
    Go to
    Enter password broadband1
    To turn off firewall
    Security> Firewall>Off Apply

    forgot about this and updating it

    done all the portforward stuff, its one of those things that is to easy to be true.

    still dont know what it really does but the solution was i turned the firewall settings on the router to low and then i was able to play gt5.

    havnt tried it with low firewall security and no portforwarding, to much effort for me!
