4gee wifi box PS4 nat type 3 issue

so i have connected to my 4gee wifi box with my ps4 both with ethernet and wifi. both give me NAT type 3 on my ps4. i connected with my EE myfi box that i got for me kids tablets for in the car and that works at NAT type 2. is there anyway for me to sort this. i have tried DMZ and had no joy. tried to contact ee customer service and she wasnt any help just kept repeating herself that its not something they can help with.

Re: 4gee wifi box PS4 nat type 3 issue

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.

@benji1990: I'm afraid it's not possible to change the NAT type via your MBB device.

 

Have you tried contacting Playstation support to see if they can help?
