Fixed wireless NAT type issues
My NAt type is strict, the pace 5268ac does not allow me to access pinholes and dmz settings. UNLESS, i factory reset it and unplug the internet in ethernet cable. Upon doing the factory reset with data cable unplugged i can access all the options the pace 5268ac should have. I did this and forwarded the ports i needed to and saved it hoping it would remain once i connected to the net. At first it didnt appear to have retained the port forwarding settings, i found mo mention of it in firewall log and the pinholes and dmz settings were no longer accessible. After a few minutes of looking around i found the NAT type in the diagnostics tab and it clearly showed my pinholes with the porta i input as being active, yet my NAT type never changed in my game. After 40 minutes or so the NAT diagnostics no longer showed the pinholes. Now, at&t states it is impossible to open the NAT type, yet i once contacted tech support via chat and the tech was able to open the nat type for me and i had a green (open) nat type for an hour. I was then called by fixed wireless support and informed that it was impossible to do what the non fixed wireless tech had done, literally an hour earlier. As you can imagine, after the uverse tech support guy was able to open my nat type for me all the while fixed wireless tech support guy is telling me it's impossible I am left confused and quite honestly #%##*¥ off. In short, why does AT&T feel I am not entitled to port forwarding access on my fixed wireless internet connection? It is obviously being blocked on the AT&T side so what gives?
