I put my router behind the PACE gateway and set the router as DMZ. The latest firmware is crapping out my fiber connection where I'm only able to get 50mbps down and 1-200 up. I thought it was my router crapping out, but apparently when I connect any other device directly to the gateway, I'm able to pull 940mbps up and down. I swapped an older router and placed that device in the DMZ And it starts acting up and the previous router started working normally.
Can someone look into this?

Hmm, so DMZplus works with the new firmware? Did you reboot your internal router to pick up the IP correctly? Earlier today I thought I had it working with the new firmware but it was because it still had an internal IP address from the PACE and wasn't really in DMZ mode.
I said it in the other thread but now the firmware updates almost immediately after I downgrade, so that's no longer an option.
Has there been any indication from an employee or anyone else that this is even recognized as a problem that they're trying to fix? I called in today and asked how I can log a bug ticket or something and they said I did all I could posting here. But I haven't really seen any official response to either my thread or this thread, besides manually forwarding all ports and not using DMZPlus. Maybe I missed it in this long thread though.

I hate being the bearer of bad news but the last time AT&T majorly fubar'd the firmware in the Pace (Oct 2018) it took until June for them to fix it. That's why it made no sense that only weeks after they fixed it and had a perfectly stable setup, they pushed this latest one that broke things again.

@jgerry2002 yeah - i was realizing that the grass isn't always greener - but in this case with the auto updates happening daily (I had been on a downgraded 10.7 for nearly 6 months with very little issues), I didn't know what else to do - so when the tech said that she would send a tech to the house with a BGW210 - I said SOLD!

Well, now I know that I know nothing. I reported that traffic through my DMZplus connected ASUS router was fine after a factory reset of the Pace 126.96.36.1992191 in the morning. And it was until some time that evening when all traffic stopped. Now my ASUS reports no internet connection even though it has a WAN assignment from the Pace.

ok heres the deal im going to use the eero pro as my ruoter, but it only has 2 ports..one will be the wan port coming out of the pace and the other has to feed a gigabit switch...so my question is what is the best fastest gigabit switch for gaming? thoughts?
I see this one around

The Netgear GS808E does provide a QOS feature, something that gamers and streamers see as beneficial in certain circumstances. Normally a router is a better place for implementing QOS but your eero setup doesn't have it (the eero people keep hinting that it might appear at some point down the road).
It's difficult to say if this will make it worth the premium price, especially given that you're on a fiber connection and bandwidth shouldn't be an issue. If you look at the benchmark tests there are very small differences in performance with the GS808E. So if I were in this situation I'd probably try one of the "regular" switches and see if my gaming experience was satisfactory. If so, I saved a bunch of money, if not, I would return the switch and buy the GS808E.
Do come back and update this thread once you've settled upon a winner as I'd be curious to see some real world feedback.

I think im giong to try to use the netgear nighthawk as my router you can prioritize in that, im going to use the pace dosplus setup to have all internet and wifi run from the netgear….the pace will just be a "bridge" I have gigabit service and am getting like 350 down and 900 upload...like most in this thread I think the pace can nat correctly...not enough "power"...thoughts?

The problem with that plan is the Pace, as you can see from this and other threads, is a terribly flawed device. It doesn't have a true bridge mode and the option AT&T provides for using a router behind it is currently broken (and the "workaround" has flaws too). No way would I be spending $250 on a router and hooking it to either of the AT&T gateways.
Are you an Internet-only customer or do you have Voice and/or Uverse TV coming through your Pace too?

The BGW210 was introduced and targeted initially to DirecTV customers. Uverse TV customers were intended to stay on the older gateways with Coax output.
It should be noted that Uverse TV can work fine with the BGW210 using a WAP for wireless settob boxes, or via directly hardwired Ethernet.

You're fired! I hate Spectrum, but I hate ATT much worse. This issue is almost a year old and ATT is still clueless. Not sure why all your customers put up with these issues.
@customers - Time to cancel services and move on.

I'm facing the same issues as others with DMZ+ and the newest firmware (188.8.131.522191). I've been playing upgrade/downgrade tag for a few days, but it's getting old. I'm ready to try the "workaround" (https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html?cjevent=05b30e7ec98b11e9830c015c0a240611&source=EC1NAT1060...), but I'm curious to understand more about the flaws of this approach. Will there be NAT issues w/ two Xboxes on the network? Anything else to be aware of?
