    Agreed. DMZ is in theory more dangerous, but WAY simpler. It's considered more dangerous because if there are any exploits involving other ports, those ports are now exposed to the outside world. You may not have critical data on your PS3, but in theory a hacked PS3 could be used to gain access to the rest of your network.

    In reality, it doesn't seem like a terribly likely scenario. I don't believe there are any known exploits for the PS3 at the moment (despite rumors). Using DMZ with a PC is far more dangerous.

    Yup, I typically DMZ my 360 or PS3 because they really can't do anything to damage my existing network or the clients. And as far as I know CC numbers for marketplace purchases aren't stored client side so I think personal information should be fine. But I agree, never do it for PCs, heh.

    Huh... I've gotten my router fried a couple of times, but usually my cable modem got fried along with it (fried modem... mmmmmm). I think both times it happened to me it was around the time of an electrical storm, so I assume power came in through the cable line (since no other electrical equipment was affected, and I've got surge protectors on everything).

    so I had to buy a router but its set up and I think I'm going to try to get the ps3 on the wireless network and if it comes up with nat 3 I'm just going to run a cord.

    the cable isn't long enough and I have to go either buy a longer cable or figure out the wireless. I also had to buy a new router since my old one got fried last night.

    Hmm, that's odd. Don't know what to tell you really. You might have to call your ISP and if they have you as "private" they need to make you public. If you're on the DMZ it should allow all traffic, so that's very bizarre.

    I looked at my isp info and it is set to private. I'm scared to change anything because I don't want to lose internet totally so I'm just going to live this alone for the day
