If I get another Ethernet cord and copy the One's MAC to the 360, should I be good to go as long as I don't have both consoles on at the same time?

Yes.

Did you clone the MAC address like we were discussing in this topic?

So I had to put my One's IP into DMZ to get Nat open but then I cloned MAC to 360 and everything's working right now. So if my One's IP changes I need to put it into DMZ? And should no other problems arise if I don't change anything?

Yes, if the IP address changes, you'll have to change the IP address that you put into the DMZ. But you won't have to do anything to the Xbox 360.

Just remember, reset the network settings to factory default on the Xbox 360 to wipe out the cloned MAC address if you ever change your setup.

Will do. That will likely come in handy when I move this summer and get a new ISP

I don't understand why the XB1 is so much more of a pain to set up networks with than the 360. On my 360 I always had either an open or moderate NAT and never did any port-forwarding. I had to spend like 3 days just getting CoD Ghosts to connect online and get my NAT to not be strict on here.
