Xbox upnp and eero
I been struggling for a while now getting xbox to keep nat=open. It used to always be open but no longer. IT causes lots of issues with destiny 2 in particular.
sometimes when I start my xbox it initially says nat=open. If I wait a few minutes and test again it is back at moderate every time then after.
I also setup port forwarding, but it acts the same. I would guess the issues started a few months ago but could have been longer.
Things ive tried:
Disable upnp, reboot everything, re-enable.
Static mappings for the xbox.
changing the mac/ip of the xbox. some of these things help but often just for a session or week, or 5 minutes. Its making me crazy.
I don't trust eero is not doing something weird which is frustrating because they hide everything from us. If i decide to bail on eero that will be the main reason, lack of transparency and allowing us to see our own network. Hide it behind a disclaimer etc. but show us what we need! Ideally through a web GUI or CLI.
I got a better tech on the next reply who said they "prefer" unmanaged switches because they know the customer did not screw something up in the config.
I threw a couple dumb switches in place of my brocade/cisco switches, just have not had time to test it yet.
If it fixes the issue Ill be broken since i can't find a single networking person that can explain to me how that's possible and I know a lot of IT people.
