Known issue caused by the update, we are waiting on a patch that fixes the patch. I have this exact same problem as do many others.

Everyone has had this issue but so far I've been able to have my brother join me no problem, wonder if it's because he lives right down the street or if that doesn't even matter. Patch 3 has been announced though and is supposed to fix the issue, so hopefully it'll be here soon. ^_^

Depends on your Internet. If you use the same ISP you may share the same connection or line to the Internet. Being that you live in the same area there is a good chance.

Not sure if this will help but when this occurs with my friends and I, we do a couple things and so far, it has always fixed it for us.

The host of the game should properly restart their console (not just turn it off and on) and also unplug your router / modem for 3-5 minutes and plug it back in (not sure why this helps but it may have something to do with a static and/or dynamic IP address issue)

Have the players trying to join also properly restart their consoles and once the host is back in-game - retry their connections.

This has so far, always fixed our issues (we're on Xbox1 btw).

Good luck!
