Max, I don't know if you have latest firmware but here is the link http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/788
This is what netgear says about playing games behind the version of router that you have http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/63 and here is the link specific to port forwarding that has to do with the PS3 and BF:BC http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Netgear/WGR614v6/PS3_Battlefield_Bad_Company.htm
You might have seen all of this and need more specific advice. If I dont answer to this post when you need me too, send me a message on this site or on the PS3.

Yep, got the latest firmware update and that solved my NAT 3 problem. As for my signal strength, I live in a 2 story house. The modem and router is upstairs while the PS3 is on the main level. I also have cable phone service running through the modem which is why I can't easily relocate the modem and router closer to the PS3. Do you think a range booster is the way to go? I could possibly relocate the modem and router to the basement and it would be literally right below the PS3. Let me know which you think would be best.

One more question, is there any advantage to using both DMZ and port forwarding?

The only thing you could do is move it temporarily and see what your signal strength is. Generally speaking it is better for your router to be higher than your devices connected to it (greater signal strength). But in your case a signal booster would probably be the way to go. This one got really good reviews http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1503198&CatId=4026. Configuring both DMZ and Port Forwarding would be redundent. Port Forwarding = few ports open for specific application (BF) DMZ = all ports open to the internet. Read this:Port Forwarding vs DMZ
A DMZ is far easier to set up than port forwarding but exposes your entire computer to the Internet. Sometimes TCP/IP applications require very specialized IP configurations that are difficult to set up or are not supported by your router. In this case, placing your computer in the DMZ is the only way to get the application working. Placing a computer in the DMZ should be considered ‘temporary’ because your firewall is no longer able to provide any security to it.

Port forwarding can sometimes be difficult to configure, but provides a relatively safe way of running a server from behind a firewall. Since only a single port (or small series of ports) is exposed to the Internet, the computer is easier to secure. Additionally, port forwarding allows you to run multiple kinds of servers from different computers on your lan. (see above diagram)

Many broadband routers have special port forwarding configuration screens for standard applications (FTP, WWW, Mail, etc) and special screens for custom applications.

You dont have to worry about opening anymore ports because all of your ports are wide open in a DMZ set up.

Okay, I unchecked the DMZ and I'm still at NAT 2 with ports forwarded. As I understand it this is the more secure option, correct?
