Method 2: Enable UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) for your router

In most cases manually configuring the network settings method is worked. But sometimes it not worked, in this situation you need to use the enable UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) method to fix the PS5 NAT Type Failed. UPnP will allow the devices on a network to discover each other.

When on your router the UPnP is enabled it’ll help to improve the connection when you’re playing a game and party chat with your teammates and other people. To enable UPnP on your router you need to access (login) the router.

  • To login, your router opens a browser and type there the router’s IP address and enter the username and password.
  • Go to [Advanced] > [Forwarding] > [UPnP] or on some router you can find the UPnP section in other tab.

  • Click Apply/Save to save your settings.

Method 3: Enable the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) server

The full form of DMZ is Demilitarized Zone, it means this is a physical or logical subnetwork that exposes the external-facing services to an untrusted network. We will try to enable DMZ to fix the NAT type failed issue on your PS5.

When you successfully enable and configured the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on your router, it’ll improve your network performance. But it needs to be correct all the settings on the router. There are so many people who are worried about the network security issues, they think it’ll cause their personal data but it’s okay until you’re using it at your home. But I recommend you only use this configuration on your home’s router, not on the public.

When you enable DMZ on your router it’ll help to correct the network configurations on the router and establish a good network connection on the PS5 console.

Configure the DMZ on your Router

  • First, note the IP address of your PS5.
  • Login to your router using a username and password. The router’s IP address may be 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, 192.168.31.1, etc. The router’s IP address may be different according to the router’s company.

  • Go to [Advanced] > [Forwarding] > [DMZ] and tick on enable DMZ.

  • Enter the IP address which match with your PS5 console.

  • If your router has the NAT Filtering option, such as the NETGEAR router, you can also tick to open NAT filtering. If your router hasn’t this option doesn’t need to do anything.
  • Now click on save/ apply changes.
  • Then reboot your router and wait until the router comes online.
  • Now, go to your PS5 [Settings] > [Network] > [Test Internet Connection] and check your NAT type, you’ll see there Type 1 or Type 2 if this method works for you.

Method 4: Forward Ports for Your Network

The Port forwarding means redirecting a communication request from one address and port number to another while packets are traversing a network gateway, such as a router. When you correctly forward the ports the network connection will be improved.

The Sonycompany has already listed a number of ports which you can forward. I’ll write here how to forward ports and if it works or not on with you.

  • Login to your router as the above way.
  • Go to the forward ports section or ports forwardingVirtual ServerApplications, it’ll be different according to your router.
  • Add the custom forwarding ports. You can try the following ports recommended by Sony:

80(TCP), 443(TCP), 3478(TCP and UDP), 3479(TCP and UDP), 3480(TCP)

  • Click on Save/ Apply Changes, according to your router.
  • Now, go to your PS5 [Settings] > [Network] > [Test Internet Connection] and check your [NAT Type].
Test Internet Connection
Test Internet Connection

Now, check if this method is work or not.

Method 5: Using Ethernet Cable

Ethernet Cable
Ethernet Cable

This is the more secure way of connecting your console to the internet. When you use ethernet cable on your PS5 console, it is better than Wi-Fi. When you use the ethernet cable there will be 0% loss and you’ll get 100% speed.

Sometimes the PS5 NAT Type Failed occurs when there is a security reason. So, before buying a router must know all about that router’s feature.

  • Disconnect your PS5 console from Wi-Fi, and connect it with using the ethernet cable.
  • After connected to the internet with the ethernet cable test the internet connection and see if the NAT type failed is fixed or not.

Method 6: Inquiry on your ISP (Internet Service Provider)

Sometimes your ISP (Internet Service Provider) maybe change something with the network settings and you’ll be facing the problem. Ask them if they’ve made some changes with it or not?

This type of problem occurs if there may be some changes on the firewall from the ISP’s end and it’ll be fixed only when they’ll revert everything which they’ve made changes with a firewall.

Method 7: Disabling IPv6

IPv6
IPv6

I think the PS5 doesn’t support IPv6 mode, so you need to use IPv4 when connect to your PS5 to the router. Nowadays in most router IPv6 is automatically enabled. But if you face the NAT Type Failed on your PS5 you need to disable IPv6 and enable IPv4 from your router.

You can do this just log in to your router and check the option where is listed IPv6 and IPv4, tick (enable) on the IPv4, and click on save changes. Then try if the problem is solved or not.

Method 8: Change DNS Server

When you change the DNS server PS5 NAT Type Failed can be fixed easily. If you don’t know how to change DNS Server click here for a full guide.
