Public IP address

Scout

Hi,

 

I recently signed up for Three broadband. 

 

I need a publically facing IP for connecting in to cams, home controls etc.

 

Can someone help out with this?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

I would like to share the following in the hope that it helps someone in the future.

 

If moving to a public IP address and you are using 4G modem router not supplied by Three, then you will need to ensure the APN name setting is set to 3internet and not 3ireland. I was unable to get a public IP address even though my request for one had been processed. A bit of digging around on the forum and it recommended this change. I updated the name, refreshed the admin page, and there it was, a nice public facing 80.blah.blah.blah

 

I now have DDNS and remote access to my network!Smiley Happy

 

Thanks to all the Three moderators who assisted.

If you send a pm with all of your details to one of the mods they can look into for you

Hi - I see you have helped OP with the same issue,

 

I have also recently signed up for Three Mobile Broadband (In England).

 

I have called and live chatted about getting my Private IP changed to a Public IP.

 

They have not been able to do this or even point me in the right direction...

 

Saw before I purchased on these boards that it was possible.

 

Bought the Huawei HomeFi hoping it would get me an open NAT type really (XBOX One).

 

Any advise would be appreciated, thank you.

Hi @Coate_555 you have contacted Three Ireland and we would have different settings/APN's to Three UK. I'd recommend getting in touch with your network provider to help you with changing the settings.

Re: Public IP address

If it's broadband then the mods can get the IP for you but you have to send the details to them. Just click on the pm link in the mods signature above.
