Re: 2 xbox ones strict NAT wireless

With two identical consoles they will both be using the same ports, so you need a router that does a good job of managing UPNP in order to ensure the correct traffic goes to the correct console.  Unfortunately the VM hubs do not have a good reputation when it comes to UPNP, even the latest Hub 3.0.  The best solution is usually to get a third party router and put the hub into modem mode.

There is a section of the Xbox forums where they list routers and mention if they can handle multiple consoles:

Alternatively I believe some people have had success by putting one of their consoles in the DMZ and setting up port forwarding for the other one.

Not sure how that is working, but I'm not going to knock it if it is working for you.

Re: 2 xbox ones strict NAT wireless

I have been informed by somebody more knowledgeable that the wireless and wired interfaces on the hub will have different MAC addresses which should be sufficient to resolve your issue, so now it makes sense.  I guess the only downside is the console connected via wireless may experience more lag.
