Looking for a new router with NAT Loopback/NAT Reflection/NAT Hairpining functionality

edited April 2023 in General Discussion

Currently have an old Asus RT-AC3200. Wanting to run private gaming server[s] (Specifically ARK right now). The issue I've run into is ARK Server Manager *specifically* requires NAT Loopback, aka NAT Reflection, aka NAT Hairpining functionality. My current router does not have this nor does any third party firmware like OpenWRT or Merlin (my router is no longer supported due to age it looks like). Most routers I've looked at don't even mention this as an option or spec.

TLDR: Need a new router w/WiFi that also supports NAT Loopback/NAT Reflection/NAT Hairpining functionality
