opening NAT type on Telus modem for online gaming (T3200M)

Hi,

Does anyone know how to change the NAT type on my Telus modem to open?  Would love to know how to do this.  I am plugged right into the back of the modem with an ethernet cable, fiber to home service.  My NAT type fluctuates between Moderate and Closed.

I am gaming on Xbox Series X but this issue would apply to any modern console I imagine.

I've got a T3200 that's on default firewall settings (NAT only) and my NAT comes up as Open in some of my games that check for it. When I check in the Xbox Companion App on Windows 10 (Settings > Network) it shows open there as well.

Are your firewall settings in the T3200 set to NAT Only?

Looks like my modem has Firewall set on the default "NAT Only" though I never get NAT as "open" on my xbox.

Side note for whoever finds this thread:  I also have a Nighthawk R7000 router.  I found a "NAT filtering" setting on it under Advanced Settings / WAN Setup.  I changed it to OPEN and that made a huge difference for the console and devices plugged to that router.
