Can anyone help with opening nat type for the PS4 with the new X1 router?

Anyone got any tips on how to change nat type to open on the PS4. With a Comcast X1 router? Some of the tutorials i've seen haven't been that great. I've been wrecking my brain for the longest (my entire weekend actually) but  i've had no luck. if anyone can drop some screensots or a some type of detailed tutorial it would be greatly appreciated.

WEll best thing to do is to set a Reserved IP for the PS4 or a Static One.. If your Router does not allow for Reserved IP's you will need to setup a Static IP and choose an IP Outside the range of the Routers DHCP Start & End IP..

 

Once you have the Static or reserved IP setup you will DMZ that IP in the Router settings and it should get you an Open NAT..

Dont forget to find the Start & End IP of the Gateways DHCP IP's
