Tablo remote connect on OTR mobile Netgear LB1120

I have the 4 tuner Tablo dvr with a external hard drive

Anyone know a work around to get remote access to work on OTR mobile.

My nest thermostat works from its app on this network

My AirTV dvr work remotely on this network


How do you have the Tablo connected to the Netgear LB1120? Is there a network switch, or a router between the Tablo and Netgear?

If you are using a wireless router between the Tablo and Netgear, then you need to put the Netgear modem is “bridge mode”. See manual below, pages 16 and 23. The following is copied directly from the manual:

“By default, the modem functions in Router mode with the DHCP server enabled and IP pass-through (IPPT) disabled.This means that you can connect multiple devices to the modem, for example, through an Ethernet switch or hub, and that each device can receive an IP address from the modem.
If you want to connect a router or WiFi router to the modem, change the operation mode of the modem to Bridge mode, in which IP pass-through (IPPT) is enabled and only a single device can be connected to the Internet through the modem. (The single device that is connected to the modem is the router or WiFi router, but depending on the capabilities of the router or WiFi router, you can connect multiple devices to the router or WiFi router.)”

I have a router hard wired to the Netgear Lb1120 and my Tablo is connected wirelessly to that router

What is the make and model of ‘that’ wireless router?

And I can only presume the Netgear modem is NOT in bridge mode, and thus you are engaging in “Double NAT”, which is the reason port forwarding doesn’t work on the wireless router. Read below about double NAT (3 great links you should read to understand why you are having your problem).

There’s a section in Tablo FAQs: Do I Need Internet to Use a Tablo OTA DVR?
Why Cellular Data and Mobile Hotspots Are Not Recommended
Not recommended doesn’t mean it won’t work… but it specifically notes Tablo Connect - aka remote access.

Your Nest thermostat works via 3rd party, you connect to a giant corporation’s server (they collect data) and it communicates with nest and/or next communicates with them.

Not familiar with AirTV. Once your device gets some info from the tablo’s servers, all the online activity comes directly from your tablo, to your device.


If you’re using LTE as your primary internet connection is it even fast enough in term of upload speed to be able to properly stream remotely without buffering?
