How to have NAT 1 and set a static IP address on PlayStation 4

This generation will be remembered as the one that kicked off the world of eSports. If you are also a frequent server visitor, this guide may be for you. How many times have you had connection problems, lag or latency too high? These problems do not depend solely on the quality of your connection (which contributes about 80% to the problem), but may also depend on some incorrect settings entered in the console.

In particular, NAT (Network Address Translation) plays an absolutely important role in understanding the real quality of your connection. Is NAT 2 not enough? Of course yes, but with a couple of changes in the appropriate section it could definitely improve. How? Obviously setting NAT 1 . Before starting with the various steps, however, you must contact your provider and retrieve your PPPoE credentials. We already inform you that, if you are a Vodafone user, this operation will not be possible (they do not even have their data), while if you are a Telecom (Alice) or Infostrada user the credentials will be “aliceadsl” (Telecom) for both the user ID and for the password, while for the second (Infostrada) you will have to enter “welcome” in the ID and “guest” as a password. If you already have this information, we can proceed to the actual guide.

Set NAT 1 via Ethernet cable

Before you start with the various steps, make sure your PlayStation 4 is connected to the internet via the ethernet cable . Then go to Settings – Network – Configure internet connection. Click on Use a network cable (LAN) and in the next screen click on Custom. In the IP address settings, click on PPPoE .

Enter the PPPoE user ID and password that you previously recovered. For DNS , you can select Automatic or enter 8.8.8.8 as primary DNS and 8.8.4.4 as secondary DNS if you prefer to set it manually. For MTU settings, select Manual instead and enter the number 1500 if you are a fiber user, otherwise leave 1492. For the Proxy server setting select Do not use. Finally, check the Internet connection to check that the procedure has been successful.

Set up NAT 1 via Wi-Fi

Before you start with the various steps, make sure your PlayStation 4 is connected to the internet via the Wi-Fi network . Then go to Settings – Network – Configure internet connection.  Click on Use Wi-Fi and on the next screen click on Custom Select the network you want to use and enter the password if necessary. In the IP address settings, click on PPPoE .

Enter the PPPoE user ID and password that you previously recovered. For DNS , you can select Automatic or manually enter 8.8.8.8 as primary DNS and 8.8.4.4 as secondary DNS, if you prefer to set it manually. For MTU Settings, select Manual instead and enter the number 1500 if you are a fiber user, otherwise leave 1492. For the Proxy Server setting select Do not use. Finally, perform Check internet connection to check that the procedure has been successful.

By following the simple steps listed above you should have no problems setting up a NAT 1, but despite this we cannot guarantee that the procedure will work 100% with all operators. All this also depends on the modem you have. Having said that, let’s go ahead and see together how to set a static IP on your PlayStation 4.
