How to change NAT type on an AT&T U-verse wifi router

So, my NAT type is currently set to Moderate . I play on the Xbox, and this is affecting what i can and cannot do on.lime Otherwise it just blocks them out with a NAT type error. I know that Moderate is not great for gaming because it restricts connection with other things, and thats why im here. Can somebody please tell me how to change my NAT type from Moderate to less restrictive type (open)? I know it is a setting no my router (BGW210-700) but I not sure where It is?

Hey, @Andy_stinson. We'd be glad to help improve your NAT type.

 

What internet plan do you have? You can't change the NAT type through a setting on your router, it changes automatically based on the quality of your console's internet connection. You can try to open your NAT by Optimizing your Internet Connection. Depending on your internet plan you may have a very hard time approaching an open NAT, such as if you have fixed wireless internet. The suggestions in that article are all recommended for improving your NAT type.

 

Let us know if this helps!

Sounds like you have wired Internet, which means that you do have several options.  The easiest one is to port forward the required ports from the Firewall page of the Gateway (http://192.168.1.254 ) to your XBOX.  Check with XBOX or your game publisher's support to find out which ports need to be forwarded.

 

And, no, the AT&T Gateway doesn't support UPnP.

Yes it does, @Andy_stinson.


You are able to access your NAT easily with your internet plan.

Also, try our Smart Home Manager app, where you can customize and check the health of your home network. Let us know if this is helpful to you!
