Setting up 5268AC FXN to completely pass through traffic to a different wireless router

I have AT&T fixed wireless. How do I setup 5268AC FXN to completely pass through to a

NETGEAR Nighthawk 5-Stream AX5 WiFi 6 Router?

No.  If OP has Fixed Wireless, you cannot use DMZplus mode; the Gateway has no public IP in that case, so it would be pointless.

Oh... I missed that he said "Fixed Wireless" and he clearly did.   So DMZplus is not an option.  So, he should be using any Wireless Router as an Access Point in this particular case.

Otherwise, using DMZ+/IP Passthrough is a legitimate configuration when people want to use the functionality of the router that they paid good money for.  Running the routers in Access Point mode is also legitimate, but not for everyone.

Personally I would just set the Netgear into AP mode and be done with it.

Can the 5268 be put in DMZ+ with fixed wireless?

Whether it can or not isn’t the point. Most people just need reliable wifi.  Mucking with these gateways ip passthrough or DMZ is a pointless exercise for the average user.

The op stated he has fixed wireless. So he is wasting his time with DMZ+.

Hey @Wifimoron,

We're happy to point you in the right direction!

 

We have some information on Configuring IP Passthrough and DMZplus that should prove helpful to you.

Thank you for all the great responses. It sounds like setting the router in AP mode is quick and easy. That’s is where I will start. Thanks again.
