At&t unite pro - Strict NAT type.

Hello, I have the At&t unite pro and after setting up Upnp and even trying portforwading and dmz, I'm getting a Strict Nat type from the xbox one and other consoles.  This causes lots of connectivity problems when playing online with friends.  How do I resolve this so that I have an OPEN Nat type?  I have 30 GB Mobile Share plan.

No solution.  I dropped At&t for my tethering internet and switched it to Verizon.  At&t wouldn't even let me sign up and pay for a static IP.

What about the new hotspot from AT&T would you be able to change your nat type on that?

this is NOT an xbox problem. It's how AT&T supplies Internet wireless devices. They are all locked at 'strict'. This applies to cellphone tethering and/or hotspots. If you wish to have an open NAT, you'll have to contact them directly and obtain help with a static IP address or help with opening the ports. 

 

Personally, I've spent hours opening ports, allowing port forwarding, etc. Even allowing the DMZ does NOTHING. So far, I've learned to live with the 'strict' NAT. This makes it VERY annoying for game searching and matchmaking for online gaming. It's OK if the are server-based, but good luck finding matches in new games such as FOR HONOR and Call of Duty - WW2.

Attach the remote PC to the ATT Unite Pro by USB. On the Unite router control panel turn DHCP off and DMZ on. restart. Go to "what's my IP?" The IP should be IPv6. On your PC on the internet enter pin6 and the IP, it should ping. Enter ssh and the IPv6, you should be able to log on. Run apache on the remote PC. From the internet enter the IPv6 in the URL bar enclosed in squarte brackets. You should be able to access the server ont he remote PC.

DHCP off. DMZ on. PC on USB tether. The PC will be assigned an IPv6 address. use ping6 and it should be accessible form the net. I have a business line with dynamic IPv4  but it works with IPv6.

This still does NOT give an ipv6 address. Still giving PC an ipv4 address.
