If your PS4 says “Connected with a NAT Type 2” or “Moderate,” you have a good connection. This means you can connect to most players without any issues, but some players might have a better connection than you. If your PS4 says “NAT Type 3,” your connection is likely the cause of any connection issues you’re having.

Checking your PS4’s connection speed
Your PS4’s connection speed can have a big impact on your gaming experience. A slow connection can cause lag and other problems. In this article, we’ll show you how to check your PS4’s connection speed.
Go to Settings
There are a couple different ways that you can check your PS4’s connection speed. The first way is to go to Settings, then Network, and finally View Connection Status. This will give you your download and upload speeds, as well as your ping. If you want to get more detailed information, you can select Test Internet Connection.
On the PS4 home screen, go to Settings > Network.
Check the connection status indicated at the top right of the screen. The numbers next to “UPNP,” “NAT Type,” and “Internet Connection Status” will indicate whether your connection is successful. For more information on what these terms mean, see below:
UPNP – This stands for “Universal Plug and Play.” If this is set to “Enabled,” it means your PS4 is connected to your router correctly.
NAT Type – This measures the number of steps required to connect with other PS4 consoles on the internet. If it says “2” or “3,” it means your PS4’s connection is limited.
Internet Connection Status – If this says “Available,” it means you are connected to the internet. If it says “Unavailable,” it means you are not connected to the internet.
Select Test Internet Connection
From your PS4’s main menu, go to Settings > Network > Test Internet Connection. Your PS4 will now test your internet connection.
If you see a message that says “This test could not be performed,” make sure that your PS4 is connected to the internet.
Analyzing your results
After you run the test on your Playstation 4, you will want to analyze the results to see if there are any problems with your connection. The results will show you yourping, which is the amount of time it takes for a packet of data to travel from your Playstation 4 to the server and back. If you have a high ping, that means your connection is slow and you will want to try to fix it.
Compare your results to the minimum connection speeds
Connection speeds may vary depending on the type of internet connection you have. The FCC sets the following minimum download/upload speeds for home internet service:
-0.5 Mbps for basic internet browsing and email
-3-4 Mbps for HD video streaming
-25 Mbps for 4K video streaming
-100+ Mbps for gaming and other high-bandwidth activities
If your results are lower than the minimum speeds set by the FCC, you may want to consider upgrading your internet package or switching to a different provider.
Identify any areas of improvement
There are a few things you can do to make sure you’re getting the most out of your connection.
First, check your modem and router. Make sure they’re both plugged in and turned on. If you’re using a wireless connection, try moving your PS4 closer to the router.
Next, try restarting your PS4. If that doesn’t work, try restarting your modem and router.
If you’re still having trouble, check your PS4’s network settings. For most issues, you can solve them by going to [Settings] > [Network] > [Test Internet Connection].
If that doesn’t work, you may need to contact your internet service provider for help.
There are a variety of factors that can affect your PS4’s internet connection. If you’re experiencing lag, disconnections, or other internet problems, here are some tips that may help you improve your connection speed.
1. Check your modem and router.
2. Check for network outages in your area.
3. Improve your Wi-Fi signal.
4. Connect your PS4 directly to your modem.
5. Use a wired connection instead of Wi-Fi.
6. Change your DNS settings to a public DNS server.
7. disable features like remote play and cloud saves that use the internet
