Fixed wireless internet, limitations and when/if they will be resolved like static ips and NAT
Using Fixed wireless here and have been browsing the forums in response to the NAT issue and not having a static ip. Upon reading the Fixed wireless info page it says this:
"NAT and Gaming
At this time, Fixed Wireless is not capable of adjusting the NAT. AT&T does have information if or when this will be supported."
The last sentence here states AT&T does have information if or when this will be supported.
So it says AT&T DOES have information. Why is none of that info being relayed here to people. They could just say "Nope, never gonna support it." but they do not. What info does AT&T have to give us concerning this? There should be a standard for ISP's to give the consumer in regards to setting up something as simple as forwarding a few ports or getting a static ip. Seems by labeling this service as FIXED they can limit you to whatever they feel like in regards to the service provided. I have trouble connecting to some games with the fixed wireless so for those games I turn on my AT&T mobile hotspot on my phone and they work fine. Is this not using the same technology as the fixed wireless? Somehow they are cutting some costs I would bet by not allowing the customer these few necessities. But alas we are stuck with the fixed wireless as there is no other decent option for internet here. Just my two cents. We will see if AT&T even cares.

Ty for your response. I have found the solution for gaming issues/NAT. In another post a gentleman stated he used a VPN to fix it. Well after a little research I stumbled across Speedify. I was able to test it with a free 5 gig of data account. Low and behold my NAT issues is gone! I will be paying 4$ a month for unlimited Data. Totally worth it. Speedify transforms my fixed wireless into a perfect gaming ISP. I am happy now. For you console gamers you would have to setup the VPN on a PC than use another program from the same people who make Speedify and share the connection from your PC wirelessly. I believe you could get the Nintendo Switch to even work with this setup. I don’t have one to test it.
