need some recommendations for 'em, currently have this one but it doesn't seem to want me to have more than 1 console on an open nat (2 xbox's and a playstation, only 1 can be open at any given time). i've tried all the online tutorials, port forwarding and all that stuff so i figure it must be down to this, right? i've heard belkin is a cheap brand so that'd explain it if so.

s'yeah, any help/feedback whatever would be great. hiigaran, maybe? q:

see if this helps you before buying a new router. scroll down a bit to the top answer.

other than that, because i dont have a console, i have no experience with issues such as this.

okay so dmz is disabled as says in the link you posted hiigaran and upnp is enabled, this is what i have now on the port forwarding(virtual servers) screen:



as you can see, my page looks different to the one in the article i linked to in my previous post and i'm not exactly sure how it should translate.

i think at one point i tried copy+pasting all of those details to different private ip addresses (up to like .4 or .5 or something) but then it didn't let me connect to xbox live at all, iirc
