Novatel wireless hotspot help

Rufio asked 2 years ago

Not sure I'm posting in the right place, so apologies if I'm not...

My knowledge on the subject of IPs/routers etc is pretty limited so sorry if I come across like I have no idea what I'm talking about :p

I'm using a Novatel Wireless Mifi 3g thing to connect to the internet and will be for a while - I really want to beable to forward some ports for online gaming..

Now I can do that, but when I go to any website to test if they're 'forwarded' or 'open', the IP which the website reports is mine and testing, isn't the one my Novatel config (192.168.1.1 admin thing) says
is my external IP .. So the port check says they're not 'forwarded' or 'open', even though I've done all that ... Really lost at this point.

Any help would be much, much appreciated! Thanks 🙂

does the novatel admin page show you the LAN and WAP IPs of the device? Does the WAN IP start with any of the following?

192.168...
10...
172.16-31...
