Two XBOX ONE's STRICT NAT Issues

Hi, I've seen older posts on this but am struggling for a resolution. 

I have two son's both with XBOX One's, and try as I might I can only get one of them to connect as OPEN NAT at anyone point in time, but not both at the same time. Both XBOX's have connected OPEN so it's not one XBOX or the other. 

This leads me to think it's the router at fault. I currently have DHCP wound down to the first 98 IP addresses, the DMZ turned off, and both XBOX's using fixed static IP addresses above the DHCP range. 

It's not wireless as I get the same result whether wireless or wired. 

This is a major problem for gaming as it prevents them both being in the same game at the same time.... any help gratefully appreciated. 

Many thanks 

Simon

Re: Two XBOX ONE's STRICT NAT Issues

Hi there Simon,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

Sorry to read you are having issues with the Nat type on your 2 Xbox One's.

 

I appreciate all the checks you have completed so far, but too no avail.

 

Have you tried Port Forwarding at all to see if that makes a difference?

 

Do you get the same Nat type when DMZ is turned on?

 

Speak soon

Sam

Re: Two XBOX ONE's STRICT NAT Issues

I've not tried port forwarding as that would only work for one x-box and render the other one unable to connect.

Id read that you could using port triggering for the  2nd Xbox but it wasn't well explained. 

DMZ would've proxy all traffic, so I assume would only allow moderate nat.

open nat requires the minimum security.
