Linksys RVS4000 port forwarding same ports to two Xbox devices

Hello,

I have a Linksys RVS4000 with the latest v1 firmware (1.3.3.5), an Xbox 360 and Xbox One.  Both Xbox systems uses the same ports for Live access, and the Xbox One has a few additional ports.

The port forwarding on the router does not allow overlapping so I cannot configure the same ports for both IPs assigned to the Xbox systems.  Both Xbox systems are connected to the same switch which goes to the same VLAN port on the router.  Their IPs are 192.168.2.2 and 192.168.2.5 respectively and the network is 192.168.2.0.

In the port forward entry, what I tried was a port forward range of 53-4500 both UDP and TCP, to the network 192.168.2.0.  That seemed to work momentarily but on subsequent tests, the Xbox indicates the NAT type is moderate.

Any help with this specific model would be appreciated.

Have you got uPNP enabled?

For the RVS4000 this means:

   
- Open browser.
 
- Log into the router by entering the default gateway (192.168.1.1) into the  address bar of the internet browser
   
- When prompted, enter "admin" for the user name and "admin" for the password.
   
- Select "Administration" from the menu at the top.
   
- Select "Management" from the sub menu.
   
- Select the radio button for either "Enable" or "Disable" for the "UPnP" setting, based on current configuration.
   
- Select Save Settings.

If you already have this that's probably the best you are going to get, although you'll always be able to get one console to have Open NAT the other will always show a restriction.  The only fix is to get a gaming router with full uPNP implementation that handles this.

Microsoft are badging these routers now with "Windows Approved" stickers.

Your alternative would be to set up a virtual LAN

I did toggle upnp on and off with same result.  Fortunately these systems won't be running at the same time but I did some further testing last night and it seemed to work ok as is.  I found an article about using port triggering and that seems to work best for me.  I will review the articles you linked.  Thanks for your help!
