    Got the PS3 online by using my Motorola Droid internet connection with the app EasyTether Pro but the NAT Type is 3 (strict)I need to have it changed to a Type 2 (to play online matches and chat) but not sure what Im missing or if it can be done

    I am using the Easytether app on my phone.I got drivers for the pc and I have my pc using the ICS(Internet Connection Sharing) and have my PS3 plugged into my NIC on the PC

    Im looking for some help on how to get the accomplished..Thanks

    This is a message from your phone warning you about the possible huge bill/ throttled 3G speed because of tethering a gaming console. I don't know what to do to help you, but you have been warned.

    Uh, no, it isn't.

    He needs to get bidirectional port mapping.

    I was joking about the message part, but warning him of the possible bill he could get.

    No fun are we? :(

    im not sure why everybody thinks online gaming uses so much data. it really doesn't. i've played COD and borderlands both, for upwards of an hour each, and not used hardly anything noticeable. skype pulls more data than gaming does

    This is true. You'll pull way more watching video on your phone or using VOIP.

    Like I said I have connection to my ps3, its just not Nat2, its Nat 3 rather, which reduces my success in connecting to peers in matches. It does work, but the only thing making it 100% perfect is the Nat type, I can't figure out how to change it, its not my router bc it does same thing without router. Are there ics settings that will fix it? Is it specific to the phone? Help?

    People listen up I accidentally found the solution to the problem!!!!!!!!!!!!
    To change NAT type from 3 to 2 WITHOUT ROOTING your android phone and using it as a wifi hotspot.
    Activate BOTH tethering-usb AND wifi hotspot on the android. It will show an icon like a blue circle meaning it has MULTIPLE thering and hotspot switched on. then connect WIRELESSLY on the Ps3 and test connection. should say type 2 and ready to play ps3 using your tethered phone!!!!!

    How would you connect to the ps3 wireless without the computer? The ps3 does not read Ad-hoc as an internet connection. Maybe the Xperia Ray doesnt use ad-hoc in wireless hot spot?
