Hey guys, for almost the last year we have been using a package from Comcast that offers around 20-25 Down and 4-6 Up. We were given a gateway(router/modem combo, I may be using the wrong terminology.)
Anyway, I get the feeling that the equipment isn't of the greatest quality. The wifi frequently drops out and the gateway has to be reset, etc.
My first question is: Is it possible to use the gateway as just a modem and connect my own router?
My other big issue stems from online gaming. Every console in my house(Xbox 360 and One) will show a "moderate NAT type." I've attempted nearly every fix I could find online, including port forward, which reset my NAT to open for about a day before switching back. Is this a hardware issue(wiring, gateway, etc) or possibly a service provider issue?
I greatly appreciate any answers!
