NAT type

I do a lot of online gaming and the NAT is set to moderate which restricts some game servers and causes lag, etc. I would like to change this to open NAT but I cannot figure out how. I have an unlimited gigabit fiber connection.

To get around this you'll need to either:

1) Figure out the complete list of ports that need to be forwarded and set them up for port forwarding.

2) Purchase your own router (which has the UPnP feature) and install it with the AT&T Gateway in IP Passthrough mode and turn on the UPnP feature.  Be aware that UPnP is considered a security risk, as it allows pretty much anybody inside your network to open ports to the Internet.

3) Assign IP Passthrough mode in the Gateway to your Console, meaning that it's pretty much exposed to the Internet.

4) Purchase a public static block and assign a public IP to the Console and enable all traffic to get to it.
