HELP. IP Camera NVR Remote View Slowly Loading After AT&T Fiber Install
I am having very similar issues to this thread: https://forums.att.com/conversations/att-internet-equipment/accessing-remote-ip-cameras/5defdb38bad5f2f6069c691e
Yesterday after AT&T Fiber install (1000), my Zmodo NVR with 8 IP Cameras is now very slow to load, they do work but the remote viewing connection process, but very slowly. It used to take 2-3 seconds depending on connection speed, and now it takes 10-15+ seconds to load the cameras. I also have another NVR at another location that still loads within the 2-3 second timeframe.
I know for a fact this has something to do with AT&T or their piece of equipment. I've researched everywhere, it looks like the AT&T BGW320-500 and earlier models have this very common problem.
I called Zmodo support and they believe it has something to do with the way AT&T is handling the traffic on their network.
I've tried so many things, with my 3rd party Netgear router and without, the same result. I have changed just about every setting, IP Passthrough, disabling packet filtering, changing firewall settings, etc.
I did read somewhere something about NAT Loopback and some other features that AT&T Gateways don't have available.
I'm really not happy considering coming from Xfinity I was able to always use my own equipment, turning off the gateway in the default modem so I could use my own.
After wasting an entire day yesterday, I factory reset everything and left it alone after giving up. To be clear, I ended up just eliminating my Negear R6400 A1750 wireless router, as apparently there's no way to truly "Bridge" the two together as I've always done in the past with Xfinity. I guess there may be nothing I can do about the slow remote viewing times, this is very annoying. If anyone else has some insight, please offer it.
