If you have a NAT type network and would like to change your NAT type, there are a few methods you can use. In this article, we will discuss two of the most popular methods – using a VPN and port forwarding.
What Nat type do you have?
If you don’t know what nat type you have, you can find it by following these steps:
- Look at the bottom of your router. There should be a set of three little circles. The first two are for WAN (Wide Area Network) connections and the third is for LAN (Local Area Network)
- If there is no circle for LAN, then your router probably has a dynamic nat type and you’ll need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to change it.
If there is a LAN circle, then your router probably has a static nat type and you can change it by following these steps:
- Go to your router’s admin page (usually found in the web interface or as a shortcut on your computer desktop).
- Under Networking, click NAT Type.
- Click the drop-down next to Local IP Address and select Static from the list of options.
- Enter the IP address that corresponds with your network’s default gateway in the Local IP Address field and click Save Changes.
- Test your configuration by pinging your default gateway from another computer on your network.
