WiFi Range Extender - DHCP ISSUE / CLOSED NAT TYPE

Hello,

 

So i recently purchased the above product, because the signal in our house isnt very good. i mainly wanted to use the extender for gaming on an Xbox One. Every time i log on it tells me my NAT type is strict and i cant get rid of it, after speaking to customer service they said it isnt DHCP enabled or something so i wont be able to get my nat type to open! 

 

My nat type is OPEN when i go through my original router, is there anything that can be done?

 

Thanks

 

Zac

Hello zacpaterson

 

You may have to port forward the Ip address of the extender and the xbox on the router.
