2 Xboxes not working[ Edited ]

I know this has been posted before, but have found no solution. I have the ActionTec router GEN2-F with latest firmware. I can't get open NAT on both Xbox consoles running at the same time. I agree with other posters that the UPnP is broken with this firmware. I tried to downgrade firmware that has been said worked, but the router will not accept the Verizon firmware. It warns that it is not the correct vendor supplied file. I guess Actiontec firmware is the only file that will work ?
I have TV service so a bridge is not an option for me. This is a big enough deal for me to get rid of FIOS.
Is there no better firmware ? Is there a different router ? Can I get a second IP address ?
I had DSL and a LINKSYS router that worked with no troubles. I had 4 Xboxes going without an issue. Very disappointed I can't get this to work with FIOS.
I would like to take a poll of others still having this issue.
Solved! Go to Solution.
A chat with Verizon now has my 2 Xbox consoles playing together very well ! They did a tweak on the server ? Was not told what the tweak was. Still need to do a long term test, but looks good so far. Will report back after a couple of days if the fix is still holding.
I had that enabled and tried all the other things other posters suggested. I will give it a better test tonight and report back. I called Verizon to see if I could get the Ethernet port activated so I can use m own router. They were ready to do that, but came back and said they made a change on the server. I hope it tests well tonight.
I am skeptical also. If all it took was a tweak, why was it not that way from the start ?
If it fails tonight, I will ask to get the Ethernet port activated.
Does anyone know if a second IP address can be ordered and would it help with this Xbox issue ?
Not for residents, no. You will need Business class service in order to even get more than a single IP. That, or a second FiOS Line.
