I use my phone's tethering as my main internet while at home (unlimited plan) but can't host any games because no one can connect to me.
Every ethernet port, wired or not, has an IP address. Two devices cannot have the same IP address, each address on a network has to be unique. 126.96.36.199 is the (public WAN) address of a single device, probably that of the incoming port of your router. Your computers each have their own IP numbers (typically in the 192.168.x.y numbering scheme). Your router also has an address in that same number range, for use on its inside (private LAN) ethernet connections.
I don't want to write a dissertation on NAT (network address translation), but that is what the router performs so that your browsers or your Telo "appear" to be coming from 188.8.131.52. Net result,as far as your computers are concerned: they can call out, intitiate a connection to wherever, but nothing can initiate any contact to them from the outside world (short of doing some "port forwarding" in the router). Look up NAT iand port forwarding in a search engine.
BTW, what is "PS4"?
Playstation 4. All of my PC's connect to the internet through my phone. There is no router, there is no ethernet. They all share the same IP because that is the IP of my phone (my best guess.) That is why all the targeted ads are from the same town. I don't know where in my first post, or any there after you gathered that I am having issues with a router.
You need a port forwarding app to allow incoming traffic to reach the right device on the network.
Forward what ever port(s) your game uses from the public wan ip to the game consoles ip provided by the phone.
So lets say forward port 1234 (or all ports) to 192.168.1.10, or what ever the game consoles ip is.
