    ok for the part day and a half i've been reading everything i've seen about NAT types on the internet, I just bought COD MW2 and this is the first time i've wanted to play games online so i went into the lobby screen and saw NAT type: Strict...didn't think anything of it, but for some reason i could never get into a game..i would get out of the lobby...so i start reading up about this and people are saying change you UPnP to enabled and change your DMZ and i've done that but when i do the NAT type on the connection test I still get failed.... can someone please help me with this before i smash my computer, router, and PS3...and my router is a linksys WRT54G2 V1

    Should be a setting somewhere in the router to disable NAT Filtering... Try that?

    You should be able to play with strict nat. The first test you need to do is rule out all pieces that could be the problem. You said this is the first online game you have played, did you get all the updates, are you sure your ps3 has internet connectivity?

    yeah I can use the net browser on it and it says I have 100% connection to the internet, Then when I go to the lobby and search for a game I can leave it for 30 minutes and it shows that its still searching for a game to join...anyone I talk to says it only takes 30 seconds to get into a game

    Yeah it takes about that time for me as well. Do you have any other game you can try online? Do you have the ability to connect the PS3 directly to the internet? The other question is your PS3 has to be on the latest software release, have you gotten the latest release? You have determined that you can connect to the internet so at the moment it sounds like you are having difficulty reaching the sony network.

    yeah i have some other games that i've tried and they don't work either! I've also tried conecting my internet cable right too the PS3 itself without the router and i still get the same outcome! i've downloaded the latest software release aswell

    Ok so its not the router and its not the connectivity to the playstation network. Only a few other pieces, the ps3 itself which i find unlikely, something else in your network that we do not know about or your isp is blocking (which could be possible). To test the last theory, yes its a pain but its definitive, try on a friends or familes network or have a friend of family that you have that has a ps3 playing online that can test on yours. Ideally a different isp but if you know someone that is on the same isp and working that would be fine too. But at this point your router and basic internet connectivity is clean.
