UPNP not functioning properly in the latest eero software update.
In the latest eero update, the UPNP function doesn’t work correctly, and doesn’t function normally. Basically, it acts like it isn’t enabled.
I fixed my issue by manually port forwarding, I just wanted to report the issue so the developers could fix it.
Ah. That explains the Xbox issues. How could they push an update out with UPNP broken? That's nuts.
First day with an Eero Pro. I need to +1 this issue. I cannot get UnPnP to work as well on a wired connection in a pretty basic setup (Eero to network switch, Xbox to switch)
I knew something was up! My Xbox’s both went to moderate NAT type ever since the most recent update. I don’t understand how a firmware update released with intention to “improve UPnP” can actually break it instead. I’m hoping the Eero team is well aware and pushes out an update on it very soon.
I’ve been exchanging messages with support on Twitter and they’ve been giving me troubleshooting steps, though I’m not optimistic their solutions will work. I’ll report back if I find any satisfaction. I’m trying to avoid port forwarding and any of that nonsense.
I've also noticed that my speed on the speed test has plummeted down to 72 mbps from the 800+ mbps I was getting. My devices are seeing this too and if I bypass and connect directly to the Uverse modem they get back the high speed.
My journey with Eero support ended in Reservation/Port Forwarding land, which did solve my problem, as I now have an Open NAT on my Xbox. I'd have preferred to use UPnP, but I guess I'll have to wait till the next Eero software update.
Following. Looks like it’s been a few months now since this problem occurred. Curious about the much needed (and slightly overdue) correction. Port Forwarding is a work around that may suffice but improved UPnP functionality was part of the reason for the update in the first place.
Yep, still waiting for an official “fix” on this issue.
Did you all disable upnp when you set up port forwarding? I have both on right now, I can't seem to consistently get to open nat. I've tried all the manual port options in the xbox settings, and sometimes I can get it to report open nat, but it always seems to revert back to moderate, sometimes even after immediately consecutive multiplayer network tests.
