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.

Any suggestions?

      Eero support is telling me they don't support "smart switches". No idea what that means.  Maybe they meant managed switches? If so that is just silly. 

      I just lost all hope that eero support has any training or ability to help with issues.  Which sucks since they hide the ability from us  to help ourselves.  

      I have basic layer 2 switches, blaming them is a cop out.

    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.
