Bad XBox 360 LIVE Lag, Help?

Bad XBox 360 LIVE Lag, Help?


Okay, I have my XBox connected to my router (which is connected to my modem) through wired connection and my mom has her laptop connected to the router wirelessly too. All seems fine there, right? Well, it itsin’t. I have really bad lag on XBox 360 LIVE and I’m guessing it’s because of the shared network. Any help on what I can do to stop this ignorant lag?

P.S.- It won’t connect through the wall for some reason, it just doesn’t recognize it.

  1. You might have the settings on your router causing problems. You need to open 3 ports and the DMZ setting, so it puts the Xbox 360 outside your firewall. You can contact the tech support for the router or Xbox Live customer support and they’ll help you do it.

    My connection is at Download 5890+/- and Upload 495. I have no lag at all on Call of Duty 4. If your speed is high, then you know it’s not your connection and it’s a firewall / router problem. Check your speed and if it’s low, contact your internet provider. It sounds like a minor problem that’s easily fixed. Good Luck.

    Select your router from the list and then look for xbox live afterward. But mostly someone else was using the internet when you were playing.
