Problem with two Xbox 360's being online at same time with WRT54GS router

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Hey guys, I have a bit of an annoying problem. I have multiple 360 consoles which are occasionally online at the same time. When one is on, it either causes connection problems with the other or blocks the other from signing on all together. Both are using the official wireless adapters and are hooked up to my WRT54GS. Usually when one of them fails at the connection test, it's a DNS failure, but it has occasionally been an IP failure. 
I've already tried:
-setting them both up with static IPs. This caused NAT issues and didn't really fix the problem with one of the consoles kicking the other off.
-forwarding ports to one while leaving the other alone, setting one up in a DMZ while leaving the other alone, and setting one up in a DMZ and forwarding the ports to the other. All three trials showed no improvement, and caused NAT problems. 
Also yes, I do have UPnP enabled.
*sigh*
This problem has been driving me up the wall for months now. No one I've talked to has been able to figure it out. If anyone can offer me a solution I will forever be in your debt.

You can set a Static Ip on Both the XBOX and then login to your router and do Port Triggering, this may solve your problem.
