PS4 NAT Type on Superhub 3

On my PS4 it says that the NAT Type is Moderate, meaning that it is restricting my network performance.  I would like the get an open NAT Type.  I have tried port forwarding but it did not work, this may be because I was following the instructions to do so on a Superb 2 and I have a Superb 3.  If anyone could give me any instructions on how to do so on a Superb 3 I would be very grateful.  I am connected to my PS4 via an ethernet cable and currently do not have any port forwarding rules set.

Re: PS4 NAT Type on Superhub 3

There is a VM guide on port forwarding if you click here then click on the picture of the Hub 3.0.  One important thing to remember with the Hub 3.0 is to leave the Firewall enabled as that is what does the port forwarding.

Personally I use a third party router and my PS4 has no NAT issues so can't give you any more guidance on which particular ports to forward for the PS4.

Re: PS4 NAT Type on Superhub 3

Follow SCA1972's advice first.

If that doesn't work then be aware there is a new firmware version 9.1.88T coming for the Hub 3, which is currently being released on an area-by-area basis.

You probably have the older 9.1.88J5 firmware (see advanced-settings->info), which has some issues with UPnP and NAT. The new firmware may resolve any further issues you have with port forwarding, though I can't remember off-hand if the PS4 was affected as much as the XBox. As I don't have one I can't test.

In the mean-time putting the hub into modem mode and using a 3rd party router would definitely work.
