EPB NAT'd me. WTF?!?

Trying do some ring-u work at home, couldn’t get some important weird things to work well, my port forwarding on my router was broken. 

Seems my WAN IP is now: WTF?!? Sadly, it’s 3am, my uber-productive time. and I’m “NAT’d”. Cripes.

=============================================================== From: John Dills ------------------------------------------------------ Should be able to call them and get it disabled (or webchat in) like right now. I don=E2=80=99t work there anymore but let me know if you have issues = :) On Sat, Aug 25, 2018 at 1:58 AM Mike Harrison wrote: eird ipes.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ In tech hold queue.(12 min so far). Honestly impressed the phone was answered by a human at all. What’s sad is I’m on an address range I helped EPB get assigned from ARIN in 2002.

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ Comcast, Brighthouse/TWC/Charter/Spectrum had cable routers were if you could reset it to factory conditions and keep it from downloading the bootstrap config, you could then log into it with default credentials and set up bridging yourself. The easiest way to do that? Unplug it from the cable while you factory reset it. Then plug the cable back in after you configured it. The bootstrap config wouldn’t override your bridge settings. --b
