It is possible to hook up two Xbox with one router. Just make sure to set up a Static IP on both Xbox and just make sure to forward the exact ports for the Xbox.

UPnP of the router should also be set to disabled and then lower down the MTU of the router to 1365, 1463 or 1492.

Happy Gaming.....

The Only thing that cud work for getting 2 XBOXs live is by following these steps:

1. Put a static IP on both XBOXs(Make sure when u put a static IP, it is in the range of ur RTR usually 192.168.*.*)
Lets say 192.168.1.50 -->XBOX1 & 192.168.1.60 -->XBOX2
Also make sure have the DNS servers matched!!


2. Port forward/ Port Trigger for 88 & 3074(TCP & UDP) for IP 192.168.1.50(XBOX1)

3. DMZ on 192.168.1.60 for 192.168.1.60

4. Disable UPnP on RTR

Try playing on Both XBOXs

Im wondering if you could help. I have one xbox directly to the wireless router with an ethernet cable. My xbox in my room is through my wireless laptop. Both xboxs work fine on xbox live unless they are both signed in at the same time, they then disconnect in a matter of 15 minutes. My laptop keeps popping up that there is the same ip address as another thing on the system. Please give me any tips. Thanks

Mkay so i had a friend over and we hooked both our xboxs up to my router via a ethernet cable. It didn't work so we scrapped the idea and played split screen. He went home and we both went on xbox live. We weren't able to join games or join a party. The day before he came over we had never had issues joining eachother. We were both able to join everybody else on our friends list too. We checked our NAT and both of ours are open, we cleared our cache on our xboxs, and we have both restarted our routers. WHAT IS WRONG? Please help this is driving me insane!

Yes it can be done, with FULL open NAT on all xboxes (none are moderate or strict). It even works for more than 2 xboxes. I'm running 3 right now, all have open NAT, all can join chat, all can join host or join any game... no restrictions at all, AND NO RANDOM DISCONNECTS!
