I'm on virgin media and I have a Xbox One, PS4 and PS3 and for some reason Microsoft has put some messed up firewall on their new console which is very finicky with its NAT. I was open for a month just after getting my Xbox1 on uk launch and now all of a sudden I'm struggling to keep an open nat for more than a few days even tho I have made it a static ip and placed the static ip into my dmz. For some reason my nat type keeps going from open to strict automatically. I have tried everything I've even phoned both virgin and Microsoft and even tried multiple routers. Any ideas as it's beginning to really annoy me

I am not sure if this will help you but I heard if you put your system on a guest account that it can resolve NAT problems. Never really understood NAT other than the fact that on some games on 360 I could never host a game because of it. I tried in the past to open ports, but it was a little over my head to understand.

I heard there was a bug with the X1 and standby for certain people... Try fully powering down the xbox and restart.

Good luck and let us know if/how this gets resolved.

I've had the exact same problem with my xbox one. I'm getting increasingly frustrated with this console! I NEVER have this problem on my PS4!

I am with virgin as well, got no problems here.

I don't use a static however I do reserve ip's on the modem and have UpNp on, for my xbox and leave the console on auto.

What's your setup ? Have you upgraded your stuff from virgin ? I mean got rid of the modem and router, switched to the super hub ?
