Networking with Multiple 360's

So I'm going to be at my parent's house for Christmas, and I was trying to hook up my 360 so I could play games online with my younger brothers. Whenever one connects to Live, though, the other disconnects. I can't seem to get them to get online together. We're still able to connect to the network, and it works to play games via system link, but it seems like some kind of conflict with the router.

They've got a Belkin N+ wireless router. I'm not sure of the specific model, looking online it looks like there's only one. I've tried setting the IP addresses manually, but I still can't get both online at once. Any ideas?

    you aren't sharing a Live account, are you?

    Make sure that UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is enabled on the router and that the XBL port (3074 or something similar) isn't permanently forwarded anywhere.

    If that doesn't work, the router in question isn't pulling its weight and you may need to put one in the DMZ and portforward to the other one. However this method can lead to partial failures on the XBL networking test.

    At a guess, the Belkin should be fine with option 1.

    No, nobody is sharing live accounts.

    UPnP is enabled, and the there are currently no ports being forwarded. I'll give the dmz/port forwarding solution a shot.
