I suggest flashing dd wrt or tomato. DD WRT is easier to use but tomato... I haven't used tomato lol, but I heat it's much more flexible.

I have no problems with the RT-AC68U using static IP addresses and port forwarding now that you can choose the port to connect to Xbox Live. I have two Xbox One S’s and an Xbox 360 all with open NAT even when on at the same time.

Right, now that you can change the port for Xbox Live. But he just wants a router where you don't have to do that.

I still have multiple 360s online and sometimes might have multiple PS4s so these other routers (the RT-AC66U and RT-AC88U) work better for me.

Not all models support it, and some don't support it well. For example It gimps the WIFI with the 68U.

I love DDWRT, I have many routers flashed with it, especially when I re-purpose them as access points.

I recommend custom firmware as something you can try in the "things to try" section of my post here, regarding multiple xboxes on the same network:

Looks like your router is on the latest beta list.

ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/

Before buying a new router try dinking around with that first.

Gamefaqs. the place were grammar/english/typing is more important then talking about video games .people attack me for that reason PRICELESS. ok by OTACON120

If he's comfortable flashing it then that's an option, I would suggest to also check the forum where they talk about each particular model, because sometimes some models have issues, or some revision models have issues (You can see what revision you have on the label where the model number is, it should say "revision A, Revision B" or whatever.

flashing can be easy, but I've bricked one or two before. I've also recovered (without any soldering needed) but I did have one router that I lost due to a bad flash. But that's out of dozens of routers that I've flashed.

No problem, I enjoy it. I've been dealing with this since 2005/2006 with COD2 and especially COD3 when my son and I were trying to get into lobbies at the same time... It took some digging around and trying some different routers but I eventually started to learn a lot more about it.

Now that they have that option to change the port numbers for Xbox Live it helps but it's still nice to have a router that handles multiple devices trying to use the same port.
