Windows 10 Xbox Live and EE Router

So I have Windows 10 installed, All updated, Latest drivers etc... I play some Gears of War that I bought through the windows Store, works great, I go to play some online campaign co-op with a friend and apparently there's something wrong with my firewall, I check, All is ok.

 

I reset my EE router and it lets me do online campaign co-op, I play for around 4 hours, Come back to it a few days later and it appears the router has updated itself and now I can no longer do online play over Xbox Live on PC without having to reset the router, Online play works for EVERY other game but it seems the EE router really doesn't like Xbox Live.

 

Is this normal behaviour ?

Just a guess: Try toggling uPnP.

No, routers don't update their settings themselves. What router is it?

 

You probably need to port forward the ports the XBox needs if you are hosting a game your friend wants to join.

It's not an Xbox, It's on Windows 10, The game just uses the Xbox Live app from the Windows store to do multiplayer.

 

It's a Brightbox 1 Wireless router, If I reset it to factory defaults I can connect just fine but like clock work a few hours later I can no longer connect to online games, Very weird.
