    Hi everyone. My router is a Belkin N Wireless Router model number F5D8233-4-v1(01A). It's upgraded to the latest firmware. My problem occurs when I put my PS3 in the DMZ, it cuts off internet access to all the other computers on the network. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

    I'd reset to factory defaults and reconfigure. Obviously, that is not normal behavior! :)

    Didn't seem to work, I tried only changing what I needed but as soon as I turned the DMZ on, the wired computer stopped working, so I just restored my settings.

    erm...if i not mistaken, isn't a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) is used to only allow a single IP address (single computer) to access the internet?

    The DMZ allows exposes the single computer directly to the internet, no ports are blocked. However, other machines on the router still have Internet access.
