Computer internet connection

  1. I have set up my computer with a static IP address of 192.168.2.2 and given my PS3 an IP of 192.168.2.3 because I want the ps3 in a DMZ all the time. I do this so I can connect to friends when trying to play Modern Warfare 2. If the PS3 is not in a DMZ it gives me a Type 3(Strict) NAT so I have connection issues. With the PS3 in the DMZ I get a Type 2 NAT instead. The problem is whenever I enable the DMZ for the PS3's IP address my computer will not connect to the internet. I can't use web pages or skype which is really annoying. I want to leave the PS3 in the DMZ and not have to enable it every time I'm going to play a game.

    Good luck.
    You didn't describe your hardware and connections, but I think you are always toing to need to enable every time... with that equipment.
