    So i got Railwire and i am happy with the download and upload speed. When i try to connect my Playstation 4 it gives me NAT Type 3 which is the restricted connection. The goal for console gamers should be to receive NAT Type 1 or NAT Type 2. Does anyone here use consoles like xbox or ps on railwire? What NAT type are you receiving?

    Ok it looks like majority of the IP addresses that Railwire assigns are blacklisted. Everytime i visit a website i am greeted with solving captchas. This means that most of the websites detect them as suspicious IPs. It is no different in Playstation. When i got Railwire i was able to connect to PS4 and now i am not even able to do that. Playstation keeps blocking our Railwire IPs (system detects them as suspicious) and i am greeted with ws 37397-9 error. I will update this thread once i find the solution.


    EDIT: I found a solution for this problem. Go to Page 2 to see my post.

    They don't even realize that most of their IPs are blacklisted by the websites and other devices.

    It happens most if the service is using Cloudflare.

    Same problem here, guys. Using RailWire and almost all the time I get this "WS-37397-9" error code on PS4, when signing in to my PSN account, accessing PS Store etc., I also get Nat Type 3 whilst testing the connection. When I try to sign in to my PSN account from PC I get "Access Denied" message on this website:
    https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/

    The captcha solving thingy also pops up in some websites every once in a while. It is really annoying. Someone on the PlayStation forum suggested that getting static IP provided by the ISP will solve the online problems on PlayStation 4. I called RailWire customer support this morning asking for static IP and they said, it is only given to SME access users not for Home access (which is what I use, Unlimited Plan 4 Mbps) users. Can't find any solution to this. Need help!

    If the static IP they allot is blacklisted, that won't help as well.
