      3 routers that allow 2+ open nat

      Hi,

      I was reading here: Downstream keeps changing. That there is 3 routers that will allow me to have open Nat on my 2 xboxs. Does anyone know what routers these are?

      Cheers,

      There are many more than 3 which allow this. Have a look here for details.

      Thanks for that.

      I am currently receiving email support from Belkin. So far they have recommended Port forwarding one xbox and placing the other outside the DMZ but that hasn't worked (this is how I originally had it anyway). It is rather baffling to me as to why one of their older routers does it fine, but one of their latest doesn't.

      Hopefully they can shine some light on doing it with this router before I have to buy a new one.

      Cheers,

      The D-Link DSL-2640R is supposed to be one of the best for XBOX Live, I just ordered one, for 2 open NATS. Hope it works.

      Cool, please keep us updated on it

      I'm still back and forth with Belkin. So far they have given me two things to try but so far nothing (one being port forward one xbox 360 and put the other in the DMZ which didn't work). On the off chance I get a result, I will be sure to post it here.

      Cheers
