Correct me if I am wrong but this article suggests that you open up NAT filtering, this open up your firewall - i do not suggest it

I fixed this! I went into my router's advanced settings and turned on port-triggering (not forwarding). See screens:

Guys its the game, I have played with 5 guys at once all on the same network but all in different squads. Its the game, share this to your friends. It only doesn't work when we are together, half of the time it does work when we are paired up but it is impossible to play with three.

This did for me. My Asus Router doesn't ask for an start and end incoming port though, so I needed to enter it as  range (37005:37015).

All seems fine so far.

Me and my brother had the same issue and we finally fixed it by using a vpn. There is a little bit of latency with the VPN but it fixed the issue where one of us would disconnect

Port triggered to TCP range 1024-1124 (Apex Legends PC ports) on one PC and it works perfectly.

 

Thanks!
