Tethering with Nintendo Switch

Hi guys I am thethering from my Pixel 2 so I can play online with my Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately I can't access any games as my NAT type keeps saying it's strict. Has anyone had success, and if so what did you do?

 

Thanks

@shepcobain: EE mobile network uses Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT), which means that you don't get your own public IP address but share it with other users. So you can't be uniquely id'ed on the Net. This is unlike fixed BB.
