Connect your gaming console to the network to enjoy using internet services again.
- Port Forwarding

Although, this can be a little tricky to do this is your only option other than purchasing a new router. To set up port forwarding on your router, you need to follow these steps.

- After this open up the ‘Firewall’ option.
- Enter the access code of your device, which can be located by checking the side of your gateway.
- Proceed to select the Gaming/NAT option
- From here, you will need to select ‘Custom Services’.
- Finally, enter the ports needed by your console device here to allow access to them.

- Purchase Another Router
If the above method does not work for you. Then you should keep in mind that the default routers provided by AT&T do not provide UPnP as a feature on their devices. Although this might be quite frustrating and annoying to deal with because you are paying for their services. The only way to get this feature is to purchase another router which allows UPnP as a feature. After purchasing this router, you can put it between your console and AT&T’s router.
