Hi lucicity!

If I'm understanding you correctly, you are having severe lag during your online matches?

If that is the case, first I would like you to visit:

There is a connection test that will rate your internet performance.

Also, are you using wireless? While wireless can make life easier, you have to bear in mind the placement of you wireless router and any devices using it (like your 360). That makes a HUGE difference.

Also, have you installed a firewall lately? It may be blocking certain ports that need to be open in order for Live to function properly. Here is a link to the ports that need to be open:

If you list what type of router/connection you have, I will try to assist you farther.

If this solution helped you, please, give me good feedback. Thanks!

Hi my son can't get on xbox live with fifa 10

unfortunately, after doing some research, i have determined that unless the problem is that you don't have xbox live gold, in which case you wouldn't be able to play online period, your son needs to make a new gamer profile. It should work afterwards. I need more details as to exactly what happens before i give you a definitive answer, though.
