Question

NAT Type/Changing router settings

by sophiebeth100 / November 4, 2015 7:16 AM PST

Hiya,

I figured out a way to change my NAT type on my PC but it means I have to go into the router settings on my browser and go from there. However, I am currently at university which I presume is the reason I cannot get onto the router settings - because it's a shared router. Does anybody know how I can fix this?

If not, does anybody know how bad it is to play CoD on strict NAT type cus that's what I'm gonna be stuck with Sad

Thanks Happy

I'm Surprised You Can Play At All

If you're actually using the university network, many universities block external games playing because of the bandwidth it uses.. And yep, if you don't have admin rights to their router/gateway, you can't change it.

Hope this helps.

I agree.

Unless your university is willing to change the network it's probably best to get your own internet connection.
