Moderate NAT on 5GHz connection Open NAT on 2.4GHz.

I recently upgraded to a Linksys EA4500 router and it has both 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrum, They are setup as separate SSIDs.  I am setting up my Xbox One wireless and noticed that the NAT Type when connected to the 2.4 is Open but when connected to 5 is Moderate.  I've read that 5 is much less congested (I'm at the end of a cul de sac) but I don't want to use that connection if my NAT is going to be moderate.  Can anyone suggest a solution?  Or am I stuck just using the 2.4Ghz?

Greetings Ripper!

Appreciate if you could post up the make and model of your modem as well.

Visit Linksys website and make sure your router is up-to-date with the latest version of firmware.

Which security method have you configured for your router, WPA-PSK, WPA2/WPA Mixed Mode or WPA2-PSK?

Do you have both band (2,4 Ghz, 5 Ghz) enabled at the same time?

Thank you!
