I decided to create this tutorial to play all online PS4 with no connection problems. Many times it may be that the servers are overloaded and simply have to wait. I also recommend restarting the router and the console and then disconnect from the network other devices that might be using bandwidth and P2P download programs or others.
I'll put the measures to be running us different games out there, as you find your solutions OMG write in the comments and I will add the tutorial. We started.
Having static IP in our PS4, eg
For this you enter the network settings of the PS4 and make manual. Normally IP address you have to put in Subnet Mask, in Gateway and Primary DNS
(If this setting does not work, probably because the IP of your router is different, maybe, so the IP of the console should be Another reason you might need to add a secondary DNS . DNS of your carrier Anyway you can write your case in the comments and try to help;))
We have two options, open all ports or open specific ports only PSN:
  • Use DMZ. It is the most simple and generic, although less safe, so I recommend to open specific ports for each game as explained below. DMZ is a system which allows to open all ports to your console only. To do this we go to a browser and enter the router (can usually be entering the address or, there we can find the DMZ option and put the IP of our PS4, for example in a router for example would be within the Firewall option:

  • PSN specific ports. Another, more complicated but also more secure, is to open the necessary ports for PSN, which are:
    TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480
    UDP: 3478, 3479
    To do this we enter our router, the NAT, Redirect Ports, Port Fowarding section, etc. (depending on the router)
    Now to verify that it worked, we must look if we open NAT (NAT Type 1 or Type 2). To see if you have the NAT open must go to Settings -> Network -> Test Internet Connection and then you put it. If you Type 1 or Type 2 is that we have done well :)
NAT in PS4
Information on types of NAT is in PS4:
Type 1: Open NAT. The system connects directly to the Internet. (using a modem for example)
Type 2: Open NAT. The system connects to the Internet with a router. (With open ports or DMZ)
Type 3: NAT Closed. The system connects to the Internet with a router. (The ports are closed either through a firewall or other)
If you have problems to play a friendly online problem may be closed ports. For this we can do several things:
  • The simplest, but least secure is to use DMZ, a system that allows all ports open only to your console. To do this we go to a browser and enter the router (can usually be entering the address or, there we can find the DMZ option and put the IP of our PS4, for example in a router for example would be within the Firewall option:


  • Another safest way, which I recommend, is to open specific ports of FIFA 14 on the PS4, since only the necessary ports open to play. To do this we enter our router, the NAT, Redirect Ports tab, etc. (depending on the router) and open the next group of ports:
    UDP: 3074; 3659; 6000
    TCP: 80; 443; 3659; 10000-10099; 42127
    If you have questions do them in the comments and I'll improving the tutorial, I hope will be helpful, greetings! :)

hey guys, I see that you don't understand what he is saying.

Assuming you know what your wireless router is, if you look on the back you should see a few different IP address'. One should say GUI access, if your unsure just type them into your internet browser one at a time. One of them will bring you to a "website" with your router/service providers name at the top.

Look for firewall options, somewhere in there you will see DMZ all caps. *Read carefully everything under that heading*.

You obviously don't know what your doing so make sure to understand what your seeing before making any changes and use google images to see examples of your interface if you need to.

From there you are just putting your PS4 IP address into the appropriate box and hitting apply, I advise to undo this when you are finished play as it does pose a security risk. (again google can help you find the IP of your PS4 if unsure.)

Hi. It looks like a great solution but I don't really understand how to do some of the ates,  like opening up individual ports. My router is a Linksys E2500. As of now, I have everything in default settings, both the ps4 and the router.

My problem is that I can't even sign in to the psn. It gives me error ws-37397-9 when I try, and error ce-33992-6 when I test the Internet connection, right when it gets to PSN sign in.

I am really frustrated. My first ps4 got stolen when it was on the way, an inside job with the courier, and now this. Thanks
