Try this at starbucks, panera bread and such to see what's up. DMZ is usually great.
UNLESS!!! This modem+router system has a firewall. Just last month I called on a fellow that was adamant we were not allowed to turn off the firewall in the router. He complained that no one could fix their issues. Sadly neither could I since the firewall was up and blocking. I canceled the call and bill and wished him good luck.
Hello Gurus of Networks,
Hey guys. I have an issue with my router and the Nintendo Switch. I keep getting a NAT type F on the Switch and I can't connect to anyone online in any game. It used to work on my old rented modem and router, but we got a new combo modem/router, a Motorola MG7550 AC1900. It's an awesome combo modem/router otherwise as it delivers very fast wifi and wired speeds. But for some odd reason it doesn't like the Nintendo Switch. I game online on my PC just fine, Steam games and Overwatch, etc all work fine.
I contacted nintendo and went through a series of opening ports, enabling UPnP, trying DMZ, none of them worked. They said to contact my ISP and see if anything was blocked. TDS Telecom is my provider and they said because it was not their router anymore, they would not troubleshoot with me, but assured me that they hadn't changed anything or blocked any ports or anything like that. All he told me was that we had Dynamic IP addresses as customers. He suggested contacted Motorola directly. So I did, but they tried the same things Nintendo had me do, forwards ports, dmz, etc. None of this has worked with wifi or with usb wired ethernet on the Switch.
I'm really at a loss here. Do combo modems/routers have these issues? A netgear tech i talked to said that it might have a double NAT issue with the modem/router. Could this be the case?
I need someone who has walked these nether-regions before... I need a hero! Please help!
I'm hoping the issue isn't buy a new router and modem cuz this one is top of it's class and $180! Motorola MG7550 AC1900, bought off amazon.
