First, make sure the MoFi's UPnP and Auto port-forwarding settings are enabled. After doing this, check to see if NAT type is resolved.
Next, if that did not resolve the issue, configure the gaming device with a static DHCP lease:
- Identify the MAC address of your gaming device. This may be listed on a sticker on the back of your device. Otherwise, you can simply search Google for the process of identifying the MAC address for your device.
- Log into the MoFi device at 192.168.10.1 (The default password is 'admin')
- Expand the Network menu in the left-hand navigation pane and select "DHCP"
- Near the bottom of the settings page, in the "static leases" pane, click the "Add" button. In the hostname field,
- Enter the name of your gaming device (ie playstation, Xbox, etc)
- Choose the MAC address you identified in step 1 from the drop-down menu for MAC address.
- Choose an available IP address in the IPv4 Address column.
- Restart your gaming device and check to make sure that it is now using the address you defined.
- Make sure the gaming device connects to the MoFi and can access the internet.
Finally, configure the port forwards on the MoFi:
- On a computer connected to the hotspot, open a browser to 192.168.10.1 and login. (The default password is 'admin')
- Click on Advanced in the upper right-hand corner.
- Click on Firewall in the left-hand menu and click "Port Forwards.
For each port you open, enter
Name - can be anything, like "Gaming Rule 1",
Protocol - Select TCP or UDP from the dropdown list depending on what the port list shows for the port,
External Zone - wan
External Port - the port to forward (see list below),
Internal Zone - lan,
Internal IP Address - the static IP address of your gaming device,
Internal Port - Same as External port
- Click the "Add" button to create a new row
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each port.
- When finished, double check that you correctly entered all of them and click on "Save and Apply" at the bottom of the browser window.
- Reboot your gaming device and check the NAT Type
