The next log in after the latest patch, we weren't able to play multiplayer games anymore. I still am confused with these semi solutions being as I am simply a casual gamer with no prior experience with this technical stuff. I just know it worked before the patch and now it don't. So instead of having us figure it out independently, can't we just have the pros fix everyone's problem with a patch or something? Ill wait no problem. I just don't want to mess something up further trying to fix this on my own. Hell, it took me an hour to sign up to battle.net and even longer to type this. Thank you.

yes ps3 ip address is 192.168.2.3 but changes someties to like 4 or 5 depending on how many devices are on the network


How are you properly port forwarding then? If the IP constantly changes then UPnP and port forwarding would not work as the IP keeps changing, I am betting this is a source of some of the problems. Is there a way to disable this and/or set a static IP so the release/renew you see in the logs stops happening?

Can anyone else that has a Belkin router check their logs and see if they see the same thing and/or has any other Belkin user tried giving the PS3 a static IP and can confirm it does not change?

What type of router do you have?

I just know it worked before the patch and now it don't.

While logic would seem to dictate that the patch is the problem that is not always the case. It may have contributed but it may not be the root cause. So far, all of the problems seem to be with the Belkin line of routers. With the logs Desciple posted I can see why it would happen, its constantly releasing and renewing the IP.

This is not to say the patch ISNT the true cause but simply blaming it without doing due diligence is not a good way to get a fix. As suggested by the Blue, start posting some details so we can get an idea of who is having a problem, it will help get it quicker than simply blaming the patch.

Would be awesome if you had the ability to get a hold of another router, anything except for the Belkin you have, to see if it works.

What you are providing in these posts indicate your router is not doing what it is supposed to be doing. No idea why/how the patch could impact that though if the router was working the way it should the patch shouldn't have mattered.

This fix is easy for some of you people out there, but for us who don't know how to mess with all that port forwarding, static ip address, or whatever else stuff, it is frustrating. All I know is that the game was fine. Then here comes the patch and "bam", no more online. MAYBE it is our routers, but like I said before, we're not all IT techs. Blizzard should of made sure that the patch was gonna be compatible with all routers. I'm not gonna buy a new router just so I can play D3.

i set the static address in my ps3, i know only that my router is something like "arres"
like we said before: we can play all other games online but this.

I bored of the single player already, cant solve the problem and it seems that there is no answer for now, so once again, goodbye diablo 3.

It seems that only Belkin Wireless Router users are the only ones that can't play online. Mine was working perfectly fine before the patch, does this mean that I have to buy a new router just to play online? I think I've spent enough money buying this game, hell I don't usually pay over 30$ for a game. Please do something about this.

I have just updated my internet service, which included a new modem with a built in router. This change to a different router solved the problem. So the problem is an interaction between the game and the Belkin router. I wish I had something useful to help those who can't afford a different router.

So you're saying that its the Belkin routers. But the router worked fined before the patch. I really don't want to buy another router because this one is fairly new. It does look like everyone with a Belkin router is having this problem. Who is not using a Belkin and are also experiencing this issue? Maybe we can narrow it down to just the Belkin router users.

Of course the DHCP list didn't show it, because the PS3 didn't have to DHCP itself an IP, you set a static IP address for it.

How do you get to that conclusion? He said it changes sometimes, not "constantly".
By sometimes, I'd assume that he turns on the PS3 Monday, it has x.x.x.1. Goes to bed, comes back on Tuesday, fires up his iPod and PC and now his PS3 gets x.x.x.4 or so, since some other devices were on the network first.

Based on the logs he provided and the statement he made saying the IP is his PS3. Look at the time stamps and the "RELEASE IP..." message. That is his PS3 losing connection:

Oct/8/2013 06:10:33 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(Host1) release IP 192.168.2.3
Oct/8/2013 06:12:04 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(Host2) release IP 192.168.2.3
Oct/8/2013 06:12:49 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(Host3) release IP 192.168.2.3
Oct/8/2013 06:14:23 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(Host4) release IP 192.168.2.3
Oct/8/2013 06:38:19 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(Host5) release IP 192.168.2.3
Oct/8/2013 07:35:50 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(unknown) release IP 192.168.2.3
Oct/8/2013 07:36:49 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(Host7) release IP 192.168.2.3
Oct/8/2013 07:37:24 00:24:8d:ba:18:23(Host8) release IP 192.168.2.3

8 times inside of an hour and a half AND its to the same IP? I'd say that is constantly. There shouldn't be a reason for this to occur other than if the lease is set to something ridiculously low?

Granted I am just a software tech and not a network tech, though I am not aware of any situation were something like this would be considered normal.

Logs snipped

Could be that the forum is doing something funny in my browser, but those logs appear to be from someone that isn't Deciple. The guy that posted his logs, sure, that's some dodgy behaviour.

Ah I see it now.

Maybe a different character on the same user profile? A WoW char posted the logs, I asked about the IP, Deciple responded to the IP question. I guess I just assumed they were the same person.
