PS3 Help

I have tried to play FIfa 09 tonight on the PS3 it tooks ages moving between the online menu options, and failed 4 times to allow me to play clubs with 3 friends, it kept booting me from the dressing room.  
Any ideas on how to improve my connection on my PS3?
I have got Plusnet unlimited and the Thompson TG585 v7 router.
I have tried sorting ports but have found nothing but confusion.

Re: PS3 Help

I remembered someone else having problems with fifa09 and this was one of the responses.
"I've definitely had problems with uPnP with FIFA '09 fixed only by opening firewall ports. I tried uPnP on two different routers and it still didn't work - DMZ worked a treat."
Adiewoo would know better than me, especially if you need help with putting the ps3 into DMZ.

Re: PS3 Help

There are a million posts about the connection problems in Fifa09, i have had it since release. My PS3 is wired now and a bit better, its just luck of the draw whether you can get in or not.

Moved to wired connection about 4 weeks ago, I have tried putting my router into a DMZ and also port forwarding but the Thompson router is confusing as hell.
