Hi Thanks for working with me on this. It is really appreciated.
Yes I am having the same problem getting network disconnects when we try to play the game together from the same network. It happens no matter who is trying to join the other's game.
I don't think UPnP is working correctly because the only port that is ever shown is 3076. When UPnP is enabled, with 3 computers running, a game open on Steam, A Steam Chat opened between my wife an I, XB1 on, and a skype call in process there should be more than 1 port open, correct? At the very least, there would need to be more that 1 port open with the XB on and a skype call active on my PC.
When the Steam Client port forwarding rules I created are in effect, would UPnP show those ports as open while I was playing a Steam game?
This whole thread was created because I suspected UPNP was NOT opening the ports necessary to for my wife and I to play a game together. It was the logical place to look. For some reason it worked when I created the port forwarding rules for my PC. So I had UPnP enabled and some forwarding rules applied at the same time. It worked for 2 gaming sessions which were separated by a week, and then the same problem reappeared. I suppose it may not be UPnP, but logically that's where we would look, right?
The UPnP tab on the R1 GUI NEVER EVER reloads after "Apply" is pressed. It's the only tab on the GUI that acts that way. Sure, sometimes the refresh on the CC tab takes a little longer, but UPnP doesn't ever fully refresh. It does not matter how long I wait. It's no matter if I ctrl + F5, no matter if I am enabling or disabling, no matter if I just Disable or Enable 1 rule or 7 rules on Port Forwarding. As soon as I click on "Apply" it continuously cycles. I have screenshots from 2015 which show several ports opened on UPnP for similar circumstances as I am trying to describe to you now, but these days the only port that ever shows as opened is 3076 when the XB is on. I know you guys are experts, but there is something fishy going on here.
I guess I should re-flash the firmware, or go back to .06h?
I'm trying to find a work around for 1 issue. I realize the UPnP must be mostly working because I can still do all the things I normally do except play a game of Borderlands 2 with my wife. However, all the examination of the issue has clearly shown that some ports are not being opened when they need to be. It has shown that all the ports that are open are not showing up on the UPnP GUI. It has also shown that the GUI doesn't fully refresh. The tone of this email may sound cranky, but I am just trying to give you the details in a clear way. (and I'm a little cranky, but it's the situation, not you)
