xbox one disconnects from live and strict NAT type

whenever I play xbox every 5 - 10 minutes I get disconnected from xbox live which is very frustrating. I have rang up virgin had my ports opened ect...and it still happens, I phoned up Microsoft had them run checks on my xbox and it was fine. I am playing on a wireless connection as wired isn't possible because my xbox is upstairs and my router is down , also I have a super hub 2.

Re: xbox one disconnects from live and strict NAT type

Wired is always best for gaming as a constant connection is needed and wireless is easily disrupted by external factors.

One option might be power line adapters.  These use the electrical wiring in your house to create a wired network without the need for long cables.  They are rarely as fast as the manufacturer's claim but are a lot more stable (if the wiring in your house is OK) and less prone to interference than wireless.

The SH is rubbish at NAT / uPNP when in router mode.
I don't suffer from this at all in modem mode.

My advice is at your own risk.
