connecting 2 xbox one consoles in the same orbi network

Orbi network works OK when I have one Xbox One connected to the wifi network. However when a second Xbox One connects to the same network one of them has issues to connect or disconnects frequently. Is there any special setting I need to do to avoid this?

Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)

Hello wiwizam

 

You may need to do port forwarding for the xboxs.

Thanks DarrenM,

 

I activated UPnP based on the article you shared. I need to track how it works for a few days as my kids don't play that often simultaneously with the 2 Xbox One consoles connected to Xbox live.

 

If this does not work, I will try the port forwarding option although if I will probably need some guidance on how to get that working.

 

Thanks again
