How can I forward ports on my Speedstream 4200 to have my Playstation 3 set up in NAT Type 2?

DISCLAIMER: Windstream technical support does not provide troubleshooting support for this topic. This information is provided for your convenience. Please do not contact Windstream technical support in regards to setting up your Playstation 3.

To open ports for your Speedstream 4200 to work with your Playstation 3, you will need to do this on your PC. Please follow these steps:

  1. Open your web browser and go to http://192.168.254.254.
  2. You may need to authenticate to go into the modem setup interface. On this window, put in admin as both the User Name and Password. Click OK. If this screen does not come up, skip to step 3.
  3. If you did not need to authenticate on step 2, you will need to authenticate here. Type in admin for the password. Click OK.
  4. On the left side of the Speedstream 4200 web interface, click on Setup and select Port Forwarding.
  5. We will first set up the TCP ports to be forwarded. Follow these steps in this order:
    1. Click on the protocol drop-down and select TCP.
    2. For the TCP/UDP ports, type in 80 in each of these fields.
    3. Click on the dot for Redirect selected protocol/service to IP Address: and type in the IP address you set to the Playstation 3. (If you set the Playstation 3 IP address to 192.168.254.50, type that in this field.)
    4. Click the Apply button.
  6. ​Repeat these steps twice, once for port 443 and again for port 5223.
  7. Now we will set up the UDP ports to be forwarded. Follow these steps in this order:
    1. ​Click on the protocol drop-down and select UDP.
    2. For the TCP/UDP ports, type in 5223 in each of these fields.
    3. Click on the dot for Redirect selected protocol/service to IP Address: and type in the IP address you set to the Playstation 3. (If you set the Playstation 3 IP address to 192.168.254.50, type that in this field.)
    4. Click the Apply button.
  8. ​Repeat these steps THREE times, for ports 3478, 3479, and 3658.

Your Speedstream 4200 should have the correct port forwarding setup needed for most games. If your game needs other ports forwarded, follow these same steps for the ports specified by your game's documentation.

​You should be able to run the Internet Connection Test on your Playstation 3 again, and it should show your NAT setup to be NAT Type 2.
