I use ethernet...no WiFi...
With NVG58, it takes longer to obtain an IP via WiFi than ethernet, with WiFi, you have the WPA/WPA2 authentication handshakes, IP and DNS resolution, and of course if the spectrum is crowded, maybe speed/connection integrity issues.
Ethernet is much faster at IP resolution using DHCP private pooling. So by the time it takes the XBOX ROM to load, using ethernet, it usually has an IP when the dashboard loads.
With WiFi, it has more steps, takes longer, and thats why u don't have instant connection on startup every time.
Why the NAT is moderate, probably takes time for NVG589 to open those ports, AFTER all the WiFi bullsh*t. Not sure though...
Using two XBOXs on NVG58 will not work, I don;'t think. The RG cannot open one port for two devices using NAT forwarding. But u can connect one using NAT and another using IP Passthrough (default server or IP passthrough, try both)
Select Firewall across the top.
Click IP Passthrough on the sub tabs.
Using the dropdown for "Allocation mode" select "Default server or try IP Passthrough".
Enter the IP Address of the Xbox in second box.
For other XBOX, use NAT...
Select second xbox, slect XBOX live service, save
try, lemme know if works--
