NETGEAR NIGHTHAWK MR1100 PORT FORWARDING DOUBLE NAT

FROM ANOTHER THREAD:

Hello @kdohmen29,

 

We can definitely provide you with some more information on this.

 

Unfortunately, your AT&T Wireless Internet device (IFWA40) cannot be used for gaming.

 

However, we do have a couple of dedicated mobile hotspot devices that can be used for gaming.

 

The Nighthawk LTE Mobile Hotspot Router (MR1100) and the NETGEAR Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot (MR5000) are the only devices we offer that can be used as a wireless router for game consoles at this time.

 

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

SO IF THE NIGHTHAWK MR1100 CAN BE SET UP TO PORT FORWARD OR BE ISSUED A STATIC/PUBLIC IP, DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET ATT TO DO IT???

I HAVE A 10.XXX.XXX.XXX IP AND I NEED TO OPEN PORTS TO OTHER MACHINES BUT I CAN'T!

PLEASE HELP!!!

the rest of my responses will be in all lower case... i promise.

Hey there @cryesso!

 

We want to look into helping you to set up your Netgear Nighthawk (MR100) for gaming. To do this, it's recommended that you turn on UPnP in device settings.

 

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) Internet Gateway Device (IGD) Version is a setting that allows the user to configure the ports necessary to facilitate peer to peer communications necessary for many console games.

    1. From a computer that is connected to the Nighthawk router, launch a web browser.
      • To view the mobile router Wi-Fi network name, press the router Power button to navigate through screens until the Wi-Fi network name (SSID) displays.
    2. Enter http://attwifimanager in the web browser.
    3. A login page displays; enter the administrator login password.
    4. The dashboard displays; select Settings > Router > Basic.
    5. Turn on UPnP.

A software update was released in September of 2018 to update the Network Address Translation (NAT) configuration for gaming on the Nighthawk LTE Mobile Hotspot Router (MR1100) to work. The action described above should help you start gaming right away on your Mobile Hotspot device.

 

We hope this info helps!

Hello,

I am having the same problem as @cryesso. I ma using a Netgear MR1100.  UPnP is enabled and I have disable DHCP.  However, I cannot figure out how to get the static IP address from the dashboard. I see the MAC, but can't find the IP.  Port forwarding doesn't seem to be working.
