Features Request

Hey,

New ATT fiber customer here since September. I noticed that the Humax BGW320-500 gateway is missing some really basic features that are available pretty much in all other gateways and routers out there.

Can't set my own DNS IPs and can't enable UPnP. Is there a hidden secret menu where those can be found or are these planned to be added later?

Also, something that I've noticed is that IPv6 functionality gets disabled at random during the day. The status changes from Available native IPv6 to Unavailable and I can't reach any IPv6 resources on WAN. I've rebooted the gateway several times and also factory reset it as well. Is this a known bug or issue with this gateway or is it possibly something in my street/area.

Thanks

None of the AT&T gateways have those "ultra high tech super advanced" features.  🙄

To get those you'd need to get your own third party router and use IP Passthrough to set it up behind the BGW.

AT&T's implementation of IPv6 is still considered not ready for prime time so what you're seeing may not even be an issue in the gateway.  Unless you have a specific need for it most of us recommend that you just disable it.  We're all hoping that when the time comes that we can't function without it AT&T will have fixed their service.

Ah. So IPv6 is broken on ATT's end after all. That's both good and bad to know. I'm assuming it's not a priority on their list because it sounds like it's been a thing for a while now, huh.

It was a point of discussion when I signed up for fiber in 2018, so yeah.  Since that wasn't a show stopper for me I didn't really care but some day I might.   The odd thing is that some people swear it's just fine for them, no problems at all.  I don't think I've ever seen a good explanation for why, though.

Since you've mentioned this, I've been perusing the reddit forums and a lot of people do indeed mention that ATT IPv6 is pretty broken and has been for a very long time.

It's pretty shocking since I would've thought that they would be on top of this being that it's advanced fiber internet and all, and not some crappy DSL.

But people also mention that other fiber ISPs also don't even have IPv6 at all.

My mind is really blown.
