Upnp is not an option on att gateways. If you want that option, you’ll need to connect a third party router to the gateway, turn on ip passthrough and then enable upnp in the third party router. 

What model gateway do you have?

UPnP is a large security hole, allowing an unauthenticated actor the means to open holes in your firewall.  As browndk26 said, no AT&T gateway supports it.  If you are willing to live with the security hole, then you will have to acquire a consumer router that has the feature and install it behind the AT&T Gateway and configure the Gateway for IP Pasthrough/DMZplus to your router.

An alternative is to learn what ports you have to have open for your game/console and create Port Forwarding rules on your Gateway to allow that traffic to get to your console.

We're here to help @thedeerhunt2000.

 

There is no option for UPnP on AT&T gateways.

Please let us know if that helps.
