BGW320-505 + 5 Static IP Addresses + pfSense Router/firewall + 2 other servers with static IP's

hi, 

i've been on the phone with ATT tech support for 2 days. i'm a reasonably competent IT person. i'm moving to a new home. the old home has ATT fiber + 5 static IPs and my setup works flawlessly. Tech came out yesterday and installed att home fiber 1000 in new home with a new nokia BGW320-505 modem/router/wireless. 

I cannot figure out how to turn off everything from this modem and just make it simple passthrough so i can hardcode/manaully enter static IPs from ATT into my firewall and 2 servers. i've been on the phone with ATT for close to 7 hours.. and none of their support people really understand what i'm trying to do. 

i just have 2 servers (virtual) + one pfsense firewall that i need static IP's for. 

is this possible with these new nokia devices?

You diagram makes it look like it should be no problem.  Set up the Public Subnet and assign the IP addresses and away you go.

@morph27 did you set up ippassthrough at all or leave those settings alone?

You would not need IP Passthrough if you want your router to have one of your public static addresses.  Use that only if you want the public dynamic address to go to your router.

no luck so far.. here is what i have:

i've tried "dhcp pool" public and tried "dhcp pool" private. and restarted the router, neither works. 

i've tried every combination i know to try.. this should not be this hard.

okay now i'm really confused. with the settings above.. i can get to this att forum thread... i can go to www.google.com and search for something.. and the results come up.. but i none of the links to the search items will go through.. i can go to cnn.com .. i cant got to speedtest.com.. 

so some sites work.. some dont.. is that a DNS issue? 
i'm so confused at this point.  

i've tried both through my pfsense firewall/router and manually putting a static IP into my laptop. same weird results of some websites working and some not.

What IP do you get if you go to https://whatismyip.com from either of the servers, or from something connected behind your router?  Do you get the public IP address you're expecting it?

  • My Public IPv6 is:
    2600:1700:a9f:7b00:613b:f7ef:XXXX:XXXX
  • My Public IPv4 is:
    Not Yet Detected
  • My IP Location: Seattle, WA US
