    Gotta mess around with the router settings so it always allows the ports the PS3 uses.
    Two ways of doing it

    A DMZ (It safe btw but certain routers hate it)
    B Port forwarding

    Best way of making sure it never happens again is to make the PS3 have a static IP with the settings you want on it.

    I had to ring my isp and they told me how to open. Had to open command prompt on pc and open it that way as i had not very many options and port forwarding wasnt working properly.

    Hope you get it sorted
