LTE home internet, bridge mode & UDP ports
Enthusiast - Level 1

I have a question that is just beyond my comfortable knowledge and I'm hoping someone here can give me a simple answer. I am still trying to iron out stability issues using LTE home internet, and one of the difficulties I've run into is trying to get some wireless cameras operating. 

My setup is just LTE modem -> outdoor wifi access node -> (cameras 1-3)

The LTE modem is a Netgear LM1200 operating in bridge mode.
The WAP is an Engenius EWS850AP operating just as an access point. No other WiFi devices (mesh or otherwise) are present.
The cameras are ReoLink Argus 3 pros.

When I set up the connections with the WAP and the cameras it was with a hardwired DSL modem feeding the WAP. Set up that way all 3 cameras installed correctly and worked just fine.

When I shift the WAN connection feeding the WAP to the LTE modem I can only reach one camera at a time, and which camera it is is random. When I talk with the camera maker one of the things I've determined is that the cameras require all UDP ports to be open to operate. Since I'm in bridge mode on the LTE modem I'm assuming that is set entirely on the other end of the LTE connection at the Verizon servers (is this a correct assumption?)

Is there a way I can figure out how to pass UDP to and from the cameras in this setup?
