Re: NAT type 3 whilst tethering PS4, how can I fix this?

Hi @JOHNNY84

 

When you tether via any mobile device, the Playstation will automatically change your NAT to NAT Type 3, which means that access is restricted. You have access to the internet but you'll be unable to download/upload any data.

 

I'd recommend trying to change you DNS to Google DNS (8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4). 

 

You can do this by following these steps:

 

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Go to Network.
  3. Go to Set Up Internet Connection.
  4. Select Wi-Fi/LAN depending on what you use to connect.
  5. Select Custom.
  6. IP Address Settings = Automatic.
  7. DHCP Host Name = Do Not Specify.
  8. DNS Settings = Manual. Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8. Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4.

Let me know how you get on.

Hi,

I can connect and download/upload data, but it severely restricts connectivity. I had 3 mobile in the past and did not encounter this problem.
Settings were updated as suggested but still to no avail. Is there anything you can tweak at your end with regards to my account?

Thanks,
Sean

@JOHNNY84 

As this is a restriction put in place by Playstation, it’s not something we can change from our end, on your account.

 

The Google DNS settings Amanda mentioned above, usually allows unrestricted tethering access as it’s a trusted domain.

 

There may be other forum users on here, who can offer further workaround suggestions though. Smiley Happy
