R6350 - DoubleNAT, Strict NAT, No IPv6


R6350 - DoubleNAT, Strict NAT, No IPv6

Just from the title, I have it pretty down bad; here's my situation:

  • My internet service (no modem) is provided through my apartment building / apart of my lease
    • The ISP is UNITI (https://uniti.com/) and I connect my router to the ethernet port in the wall and it provides my router internet. Basically... the port in my wall is my modem. 
  • On my Xbox Series X, I am getting:
    • DoubleNAT
    • Strict NAT
    • Only using IPv4, IPv6 apparently isn't available

 Here are the "things" I have done in effort to try to fix this using self-service options all over the internet:

  • Factory Reset the router
  • Internet Setup Settings
    • Changed Internet IP Address to Use Static IP Address
    • Changed Router MAC Address to Use This MAC Address and Use Computer MAC Address 
  • WAN Setup
    • NAT Filtering set to Secured and back to Open 
    • Disable SIP ALG (current setting)
    • Disable IGMP Proxying and back On
    • Set my Xbox as Default DMZ Server and back off
  • LAN Setup
    • Use Router as DHCP Server turned off and back On
  • Turned UPnP off and back On
  • Put all of the Ports required to be Open in Port Forwarding (https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/hardware-network/connect-network/network-ports-used-xbox-live)

I HAVE NOT attempted to use Wireless Access Point or Bridge Mode; wanted to post this before I go through those as I did research and it's not always the best thing to do especially if I don't have another router. Unless someone can educate me a little better on this. 


Current IPv6 Settings:

  • Auto Detected: 6To4 Tunnel
  • Remote 6to4 Relay Router: Auto
  • LAN Setup: 
    • Changed from Use DHCP Server to Auto Config and back to Use DHCP Server

Believe it or not, I am at a complete roadblock. Your help with this is greatly appreciated. 


Also, if this helps some of you I came across this site that tests my IPv6 that is safe to share:

Re: R6350 - DoubleNAT, Strict NAT, No IPv6

Afraid, there is nothing (or not much) you can do - except of arranging your own unrestricted Internet connection, assigning a public IPv4 address to your router Internet port, and ideally providing a good IPv6 coverage, allowing your own IPv6 network on your router LAN.


A hardcore approach would be to operate your "own" IPv6 network with the help of a tunnel broker https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_von_IPv6-Tunnelbrokern, like HE's https://www.tunnelbroker.net/
