Ya yes, NG and Linksys are not good for supporting of local DNS side addresses. Kind of a shame.

I just got the TP-Link C5400X and it does support local LAN side custom DNS. Which is nice. :dance:

Unfortunately Port Address Restricted is the NAT kind. I'm still checking to see if there is any FULL CONE NAT support. :think:

Other than this, seems like a nice router. Will be doing some two xbox gaming with it and see how it goes.

Got the RT-AC86U configured today and UPNP + Full Cone NAT and finally I have Open NAT on all Windows 10 clients, in CoD: Black Ops 4 on all clients while playing the game at the same time and on all the consoles!

Boy the list is growing with more and more new fails! I am fearful for upgrading past AC (AX/Wifi6/etc) as it seems like every new router fails to provide open nat with 2 xboxs. Part of me really wants to move on from the XR500 but I am clinging on to Full Cone NAT for dear life :XD:
