    Hello ladies and gentlemen,
    I'm trying to use my smartphone (Xiaomi Redmi 7) as a modem to play videogames online.
    It works to browse the internet, but my games (and Discord*) don't want to open.
    (*Acutally Discord opens, but says it can't connect)

    It worked before with an other phone.

    If you have any idea, i'll be glad :)

    Thank you !

    Did you have to set any port forwarding or turn off the firewall (if available) on the previous phone? That's the only thing I can think of if it was an actual router.
