xbox error upnp not successful

Many Xbox One owners reported UPnP not successful message on their console. Here’s what one user said about this error on the Microsoft Answers forum:

So I just bought a xbox one s and went to play black ops 4 and my party chat was very crackly and then it eventually kicked me. After looking into it some more I saw that my UPnp said unsucessful. I then looked into how to fix it and found out that my internet provider (AT&T) doesnt support UPnp. But on my last xbox one the chat worked fine. What changed with the xbox’s that screwed this up and how can i fix it?? Thanks!

If UPnP feature isn’t available on your router, try using DMZ, Port Forwarding or Port Triggering features instead.
