Hey @winot43. Thanks for reaching out to us, and we'd be happy to help you get your routers to set to our gateways.

 

We'd suggest checking out our information on how to configure IP Passthrough and Port Forwarding. IP Passthrough is suitable for a customer desiring to connect a third-party equipment to an AT&T provided gateway.

  • Only one device can be put into passthrough mode.
  • Placing a device in passthrough mode will remove firewall protection provided by the AT&T gateway.
  • When a device is configured in passthrough mode, it will be assigned a WAN IP instead of a LAN IP. Other devices connected to your gateway may no longer be able to share files with the device in passthrough mode.

Let us know if this helps get your routers set up.
