“Strict NAT detected” message when playing online game.

I’ve had the Nighthawk X10 R9000 for a week and every once in a while when I play Warframe (online game) on my Nintendo Switch a message shows up in-game that says “Strict NAT detected. Please forward UDP ports 4950 & 4955 to <Nintendo Switch IP address here>“. What should I do to get rid of this message? I haven’t done any port forwarding before but if someone can explain to me what I should do in a simple way that would be great. Thank you.

There is a manual for the R9000 somewhere at the end of this link:

Maybe the section Port Forwarding to a Local Server will help.

You might also get help from Nintendo experts.

 

What else is on your network? The router?
