You won't get NAT 1 using a router :thumbsdow

The NAT types are:
Type 1 - Connected directly to the internet (no router/firewall). Should have no issues.
Type 2 - Connected through a router properly. Should have no issues.
Type 3 - Connected through a router without open ports or DMZ setup for PS3. Everything should function properly, but you may have connection, voice chat or other issues.

You should be OK with NAT 2 :smashin:
I'm with Sky unlimited and have NAT 2 with no problems

If you follow the guide jonnyc posted you'll put your ps3 in a dmz - you won't need to forward any ports then as all are open. It'll sort out your problem connecting to opponents in fifa etc.:smashin:
