What platform are you playing the games on? UPnP should open the ports needed for the games, do you have an Open NAT already? The port settings will be the same for either router so no differences there.

Are you using the Geo-Filter as this can sometimes cause false readings of NAT. This guide should help you with Port Forwarding: https://kb.netgear.com/24290/How-do-I-add-a-custom-port-forwarding-service-on-my-Nighthawk-router

Lag spikes are probably not related though. Are you using QoS?

I would definitely suggest using QoS as that will prevent you getting local congestion/lag.

Okay i setup up the custom port forwarding and went in to see if my nat changed and it was still saying moderate in warzone . Gonna activate qos and change my geo filter from 500km to may be 1000km that may help .  I'm connected to a  comcast modem wired  i never set it to bridge mode just connected and lowered my geo filter and started playing. Learning alot from this community and youtube comes in handy. Thanks alot for your help

Does the comcast have WiFi with devices still connecting to it? If so I would suggest disabling the WiFi to have everything connected to the XR. If it does have WiFi then you will either need to use bridge mode or put the XR WAN IP found in System Information into the comcast DMZ. That should then make the NAT open.
