Note about NAT Type: 

If you have NAT Type Issues (NAT Type 1/2/3) - contact Amplex Support before calling your router manufacturer. A  NAT type 3 issue can be caused be a "double NAT" setup where both the Amplex radio and your home router are performing NAT (a security measure). Amplex can easily disable NAT on your radio, whereas your router support may have you playing with settings for hours (and charge you for the support!). As Amplex switches to our new IP allocation system most setups will have NAT disabled by default. Our number is 419-837-5015.
