Instant Xbox Live Disconnection
For the past couple of months, I haven't been able to connect to Xbox Live wireless (I can't use a wired connection as it's situated in the house to where I have no access to a wired connection, FYI) to play a multiplayer session on the Xbox One. The problem first started from random, intermittent disconnects even without Chromecast (streaming Netflix) streaming in the next room. After it does it's thing however, it stops momentarily for a week or two before it decides to flare up again. Very recently, it has decided to instantly disconnect me from a multiplayer game of any kind, regardless of what game it is. So I got curious, went into my modem's (Netgear CG3000DV2) settings, forwarded all the necessary ports, had WMM on, even dabbled with the UPnP and DMZ settings. Countless resets from both the modem and Xbox, and I was not making any headway whatsoever.
I did an experiment last night involving making my phone a mobile hotspot and having my Xbox One connect to it and guess what? No random disconnects, no instantly dropped multiplayer games. Granted, I did have a constant Moderate NAT but I kind of figured such since, well, it's my phone. At this point, I am considerably frustrated because I can't do much else within the parameters of my modem's UI and settings. I can't even manually update my firmware! So, unless specific traffic on Xbox Live is being throttled, I don't what to make of this honestly.
