After experiencing some online problems on my PS4 (kicked out of parties, trouble connecting to players) I decided to put my PS4 into a DMZ. At first, I noticed my PS4 would always use the same IP address whenever I started the console, even though it was on automatic IP address. So, I just put that IP into the DMZ in my router and everything was fine.

Now, it decides to give 1 of 3 different IP address when I start up. So I decided to manually set up the internet connection and give the PS4 a manual IP address which I done, and filled in all the DNS, Subnet etc... and put that manual IP address in the DMZ instead. I restarted everything and now ran the internet connection test... Obtain IP? Check. Internet Connection? Check. PSN? Check. Then it gets to NAT Type and waits for a while and then says NAT Type failed?

How can I solve this please?

My System

Check your NAT Type to make sure it's not set to Type 3. Instructions here: How to Change Your NAT Type on PS4 and PS3 | PlayStationing
To find out your PS4s NAT type go to

Settings > Network > Internet Connection Status

It should list the NAT type at the bottom.

Saying no audio device, drivers are working properly?
I have Winxp, all service packs, and Sound Blaster Audigy. I have tried what I am assuming is every solution I have found in short of reinstalling XP. Making sure the right devices are started in services, un-installing/re-installing/updating drivers, and so on. One thing it probably could be is...
