Xbox One and strict NAT

Hi, I noticed last night I had a strict NAT on wireless yet today its open. I don't recall having a strict before as I may have done the port forwarding option (not sure as I recently reset the super hub 2). I also have an Xbox 360 which had problems connecting via ethernet, would port forwarding affect the 360 despite it being connected via wired ?

Main point of the question is would putting the superhub 2 into modem only mode and buying a dedicated router improve the performance for the devices connected ?

 

I've seen on here a few Asus routers have been mentioned, are these still worth buying ?

It would be yes.

Re: Xbox One and strict NAT

Any recommendations other than the ASUS RT-N56U or the asus rt-ac3200, I like the look of the N56U.

Re: Xbox One and strict NAT

ASUS RT-N66U is fantastic but its 4 years old. There are new ASUS Routers on the market.

SH in modem mode plus ASUS Router is the BEST WAY to GAME on VM.

Re: Xbox One and strict NAT

I'm thinking of 1 that's less than £100 unless its super good I can stretch to spending more than £100.

Re: Xbox One and strict NAT

The ASUS N66U is around 85 to 90 pounds. Well worth the price.

Re: Xbox One and strict NAT

Basics took me 10mins.

The Advanced settings can take a lot longer, you can do these when online.

What about this 1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/RT-AC66U-AC1750-Diamond-Dual-Band-Gigabit/dp/B008ABOJKS/ref=dp_ob_title_ce

according to amazon its a newer model. Its a little more than what I had in mind to pay.
