Port Forwarding or Port Triggering?

Recommended Posts

Have an Xbox One and PS4 and play some of the same titles on both (not at the same time obviously), just wondering what's easier to set up for opening ports on the XR500

Personally I'd stick with UPnP. The UPnP functionality on these Nighthawks is incredible, it should detect and open any port you need. Was there a reason you wanted to use one of these instead?

If it was a choice between just those two, I'd say Port Forwarding is your best bet.

I'd recommend setting reserved IP addresses for your consoles first under Settings > Setup > LAN Setup.

Then port forwarding is where i'd start. It's fairly easy to set up under Settings > Advanced Settings > Port Forwarding.
