Adding additional router would give me a static IP inside the house, ie., printers, netflix etc - but how static IP for outside the house? Work from home requires whitelisting of IP to multiple logins. Can’t whitelist Dynamic IP’s. Tried to follow links for Tmobile business internet (But none of them are working?) Just looking for a solution to actually use this internet :D At current, there is no support for static IP address for your TMO gateway.
I cancelled part way thru the billing cycle and Comcast refunded a portion of what I had paid toward the month My mistake, was thinking Spectrum. However for TMO there is no refund after the trial period ends and there are no credits if your internet connection shows any data access regardless of how slow the service was that day.
I guess I am confused. This time last week i had my TP-link router (with virtual servers configured by port forwarding) hooked up to a Charter DOCSIS cable router and life was fine. I treated my Spectrum assigned IP address as static, which it was for long periods of time. If I were away from home and wanted to grab a file from the home location i would, remotely: sftp -P 29457 Stu@220.127.116.11. The odd port number used is to keep hackers at bay. The 97. ip is my semi-static IP as assigned by Spectrum. I have simply removed the DOCSIS router and substituted your router and no virtual servers. Can someone make me smart as far as what is wrong? Thanks in advance. FYI, I am not affiliated with TMO. I am simply a TMO customer.Your Spectrum cable modem supported bridge mode which allows your external router to get all unfiltered traffic from your public IP. On TMO 5G modems, there is no bridge mode so you can operate your external router as an access point or you can create a 2n
Port forwarding is provided by an external router. Wifi is completely disabled on the 4/5G gateway. Am I to assume the gateway is open on all ports? Nobody has any confirmation nor documentation on what ports are or are not open on the gateway. Also there is no bridge mode for external router. You can only use AP or double NAT in DHCP mode.AP mode requires TMO router to do port forwarding. DHCP mode requires TMO router to port forward to external router. Neither is possible because there are no port forwarding features on the built in gateway router.I believe Nokia (cylinder) has UPnP but Arcadyan (cube) currently does not.
If you are talking about the Tmobile Home Internet 5G gateway that is a silver cylinder, it does not operate on battery. It can only show signal strength on battery to help find the best place to position it. You must plug into AC to fully function.If you are talking about a portable hotspot, it could be that your battery is no longer able to hold enough charge and needs to be replaced.
wait… what? I have DHCP on auto, and my old WiFi plugged into the TM gateway. I am unfamiliar with how to configure my tp-link AX1800 or Deco M9 to AP mode.I see no options in the app for that. Either way, will AP mode still have the MESH network advantages? Ok so I found AP mode to my Deco and the AX1800 is the primary router. Anyone know how to disable the WiFi on the gateway? I don’t recall and off option on the Network tab There is no app or UI way to disable wifi on the new Arcadyan gateway so you have to run some scripts detailed in the video below:
I’m not sure. How it works, but i do know that MLB.TV does NOT work when using either my phone or Roku if I sign in through the Tmobile Modem, but both wotrk if i sign into the network through my wireless netgear router. The router is connected to the tmobile modem via ethernet cable. This was a workaround suggested to me by a Tmobile tech support person, though several others had not provided ANY solution. I think it is worth trying if someone has an old router as it works for me. The geolocation is not about not being able to access the MLB app. It is about not being able to lock in the correct geolocation so you don’t get blackout in your local area.What you have fixed is another issue. I don’t doubt what you are experiencing but you were telling people on this thread that they can set a static public IP address by using a separate router and that is technically false. Static public IP address can only be set by Tmobile on their gateway and currently is only available to busines
I watch through roku on my television Does the zip code location in your Roku MLB app match your physical zip code? If yes, then you are fortunate that your Tmobile public IP happens to in the same area. Your router’s static IP address has nothing to do with geolocation which you can confirm by checking your public IP on the website referenced above. It is impossible for any app or website to see your router’s IP address since it is behind the firewall of your Tmobile gateway.
It absolutely fixed the problem for me on MLB.TV. As long as i sign i through my wirelessly router, which has its own static IP Address, MLB.TV can fix the location. I can’t promise it works for all location-necessary services but it definitely does for MLB.TV. How are you watching MLB.TV? If it is from your smartphone, there are no issues since those use GPS for geolocation. If you are watching from a streaming device like Roku, that is were people on this thread are having problems since the MLB app tries to use public IP address for geolocation.
The fix is to use a wireless router which does have a fixed IP address. I used an old router and now it works fine. I just sign into the router’s wifi signal amd it send the IP address through the T-Moblle modem. Its a good, cheap workaround, but hopefully Tmobile will fix the issue in the next generation of modems. That does not solve the issue in this thread. The IP on this topic is the public IP address assigned to the Tmobile gateway. This IP cannot be changed by your router. The IP your router assigns is your own network and is hidden from the public. You can verify this by using an website that shows you what your public IP address is. You will also see that the geolocation on your public IP address isn’t accurate.

Thanks Cali, Cat - I was on a chat with YouTube last night and we tried multiple option and it kept defaulting back. For some reason the TV and or Roku could not connect to my tablet (which is connected to the same wifi),I will try the phone, I see its local area is what it needs to be, next will try the TV and Roku and see if they can connect with the phone. Hopefully once set it will stay set or does the phone need to be constantly updating the location. SoCal Mark. My device is Apple TV and I also used Amazon FireTV Stick before Apple. Both YoutubeTV apps allow you to update your location and when you do, it will tell you to open your mobile app so it can use GPS. You cannot type in your zip code.
