Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Ping is high at closest server. But low at servers much further

Hi.

I've been having problems with my internet connection and xbox live.
Background..

I live just outside kansas city.
Dlink 4300 router
New modem
computer hooked up via wireless connection
Xbox 360 connected via LAN line to router.

I have a 7m download high speed cable internet through time warner cable. Experiencing lag in 90 percent of games I play in on XBox live. My brother who lives in Missouri runs a speedtest.net test and has slower upload and download speeds and never lags..however his Ping is around 35-50ms...
where mine measures 4500 download and 500 upload but my ping is at about 120-140ms ( i assume this must be the problem). For some reason I get a ping of around 50 when I choose a server on the map that is further away. Like springfield i measured nearly the same download/upload time but got a ping of 57ms.

What can I do to fix this problem...Can I change my router or xbox 360 setting to use one of those servers....maybe throughDNS settings. I don't know and I'm kind of at the end up my rope with the tech suupport at time warner...

Any suggestions ??

I really appreciate the help

    I have an Xbox 360. The high ping that I am experiencing is causing a latency when playing online multiplayer games. In short I'm getting killed in Call of Duty 4 before I can get a shot off. PLEASE... SAVE MY ONLINE CHARACTER'S LIFE... Help me find a way to reduce the ping!

Hello there i have built many wifi networks and install networks for server hosts.
I would try setting your port forward to the correct port that xbox live runs on.
also uncheck Qos (quality of service) this will throttle bandwidth, you want this off.

Cant login to Xbox live


Hi loads of people are having the same problem, xbox live must be having some downtime or server issues if you was the only one then it could be your end but in the last hour their have been loads of posts regarding this problem and all users are getting the same message.

try switching you xbox off and back on and if it still dont connect then your going to have to wait i would try again in an hour or two, usually down time for the servers is a couple of hours while xbox install updates to xbox live, its not a problem your end so dont get changing any settings, the problem is with xbox live so just bare with them and it will sort itself out.

the last time this happened was about 6months ago and the downtime was just over 4 hours, so bare with them for a bit and it will be sorted.

you could try logging into the xbox site on the net and not through your xbox and check the xbox chat rooms and you will be able to find out more their.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page on unrated posts, thanks

I play cod 4 on xbox live and it disconects me and says server timed out, i have a netgear wireless router. can you help me? ... my internet speed is high.


Same problem with me and my PS3, at the back of the router should be a small little hole that says reset. Get a pen and push the button inside. It will then reset hopefully fixing your connection.

When testing the connection for xbox live it can't find the IP address.


Hi,

Xbox 360 Connection Tests: IP Address
This test verifies that your Xbox 360™ console has a valid IP (Internet Protocol) address.
If your console does not pass this test:

Confirm that there are no other devices on your network with the same IP address.

If you are using a router or gateway, verify that it is configured to assign IP addresses to network devices (DHCP-enabled).

If you are connected to a router, make sure that your console'sEthernet cable is not connected to the router's LAN port rather thanits WAN port.

If you are connected directly to a modem and your ISP (Internetservice provider) requires PPPoE settings, verify that your PPPoE username and password are correct. If your ISP doesn't require PPPoEsettings, remove the PPPoE user name and password settings.

If you are connecting directly to a modem and have replaced a devicethat was connected to your modem with your Xbox 360 console or anotherdevice, turn the modem off and back on before connecting the newdevice.

If you are using a static IP address from your ISP, verify the address with a your provider.

If your console is connected to an ad-hoc network (in which devicesare connected directly to each other), it will probably not pass thistest. If your IP address is assigned automatically and your ad-hocnetwork does not include a DHCP server, this does not indicate aproblem. The test is properly reporting that a DHCP server could not becontacted. Xbox Customer Support does not support the use of ad-hocnetworking to connect to Xbox Live.

If you're using an ad-hocnetwork without a DHCP server and you can't connect to Xbox Live, checka different diagnostic test for the root of your problem.

This comes from http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/connectionmethods/troubleshootliveconnection-testipaddress.htm

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

XBOX Live is "connected" but i cant play any games online because the server is always "Temporarily unavailable"


xbox live has recently added three ports for wireless internet.
if you know how to open ports (protocols) on your wireless router, then the following should be open (enabled) for your xbox 360s IP adress:
TCP
: 80

TCP and UDP:
:3074
:88
:53

Xbox live


Hi you will need to either do the following:

1. extend the dhcp leasing function within the router by increasing the time for the lease, usually this is in minutes
2. manually assign the ip address so ud ont have this problem ever again
3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.

good luck

Connecting to xbox live failing


The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.
