Re: [Troubles] 2wire 2701HG PS3 remote play problem.

Would forwarding that port make the router stop the ARP on the PS3?

Edit: I'm port forwarding it now but on the part that says "Select a computer
Choose the computer that will host applications through the firewall:" Do I choose the PS3 or the computer that is connected to the router via Ethernet cord?

Edit 2: Port forwarding didn't work. But I've been doing some reading on the internet would setting a static IP on the PS3 outside my routers DHCP range, make it to where the ARP packets wouldn't wake the PS3 up? I can already use the remote play on my internet if I can wake the PS3 up with my PSP before my router does with the ARP. So that might be why the port forwarding didn't help.

Choose the ps3 by name or ip address

No

Once you "pair" a psp or playstation vita to the ps3 the ps3 can be woken via the internet or the lan

I doubt that the 2wire is causing the problem

I have paired my PSP to my PS3, and can get it to work over the internet if I can wake the PS3 up with the PSP before my router sends out a signal to discover the network, which the PS3 mistakes as a wake up call from a PSP or Vita. I've been browsing a lot of other forums and this is a pretty common thing with various routers. I was just wondering if it's possible to disable the signal my 2wire router sends, or if I would be better off buying a new router.

I don't know what the signal is that the 2wire sends out

I've posted how I would start troubleshooting to try and find a solution
