No not really, but 54mps is a wireless speed not the actual internet connection speed... if your lagging try wire the xbox and see if that fix's

you could also disable the wep/wpa security for the xbox and hardcode the xbox MAC address into your router

When i play my xbox 360 im getting a lag...my friend said i should have a setting to prevent this but im not sure which one it is or how to do it..


Everyone experiences lag from time to time. Lag is often the Xbox (Microsoft) servers themselves, however if you are always the lag source, then there are several potential issues and/or solutions:

1) Open/Closed NAT (Network Address Translation): Your NAT should be set to open or not restricted. This is not a console setting. You must log into your router to change this setting. Typically this will fix your issue (especially if game chat or joining is impacted).

Additional changes: Note: If you do not know how to make changes within your router, then get help from someone who does (parent, or write back with your router brand and model number and ask for assistance).

2) Within your Router ENABLE the UPNP setting.

3) Another option: Within your router, assign your console a static IP address. Then set up port forwarding for the following ports: 88 UDP and 3074 UDP & TCP. This way you can keep NAT closed, but allow unrestricted internet traffic to xBox.

4) If using wireless network adapter, unplug it and run a CAT5 cable from the Xbox directly to the router. If your lag issue goes away, then there could be interference with the wireless traffic. If interference, then log into router and change the broadcast channel.

5) High speed internet and traffic: You really need high speed internet (cable or DSL), close proximity to the router and bandwidth to fully enjoy online gaming. If there is a housefull of net users (Youtube, movies, music, gaming, etc..) then you can expect lag issues.
Upgrade to a higher speed package. 3 or 8 Mbps download is fine if you are by yourself, but with lots of activity, then you need 16 to 30 speed (which is really volumetric capacity and not speed). Check your download/upload speed at www.speedtest.net

6) Make sure your Modem (not router) is DOCSIS 3 and not the older DOCSIS 2 versions. Ask your ISP to check your connection for any potential problems. They can typically read this from their end.

7) Check all cable connections coming into the house, all the way to the Modem. If DSL, then check phone lines and filters.

8) Finally, and I am sure this never happens, if surfing off of a neighbors system, then stop mooching and buy your own! ;-)

Hope this helps!

Xbox 360 slim offline lag


Hi dinobots,

Do you use Wi-Fi or an ethernet cable? If you are experiencing severe lag, it could be a problem with your actual internet connection and not necessarily your XBox 360.

I would purchase an ethernet cable (they run about $10 over here in the states) and try that out before anything else

Lagging on a xbox 360 with a 320gb hard drive


It is not only the memory to check when your xbox is lagging. You need to check if you are connected wirelessly for it might be interferrences issues. You need to connect via ethernet cable first to isolate wireless issue. Once connected via ethernet cable and still lagging you can check the bandwith issue. Make sure that when connected to your computer/tower, its only the xbox in use. Turn off any computer, laptop, any wireless device that might be using the internet.

How can I limit lag on Halo Reach?


You cant really "limit" lag.

If your connection is slow, make sure you don't have any downloads or uploads going on your computers in your home - this can cause a dramatic use of bandwidth and create lag.

You can also try just having the xbox hooked into the internet to see if it runs better. Also try restarting your internet (unplug the router for 30 seconds).

If you are running wireless, make sure you have a solid connection.

It is also possible that the Halo Reach servers are getting overloaded and having some problems which then Bungie has to deal with.

Hope this helps.

I just subscribed to wireless internet, what does my son need to hook up his xbox wireless


Hi,
Your son will need a long enough ethernet cable to run from the router to the console,or a wireless xbox adapter, these in the uk cost about £45 they are prone to lagging if the console is too far away from your wireless router, I would recommend buying 2 comtrend powerline adapters, about £30 off ebay, they use your existing power cables that run through your house, so no infuriating lag.
Hope this helps.

Multyple 360's in one house running slow.


You actually cannot set it to primary. I know how you feel when someonelse is doing something with the internet connection and it slows you down to where you get TONS OF LAG! Well your internet can only hold so much, and when you have so much stuff taking the overload, it slows it down. Best solutions would be, get faster speeds of internet. Fios would be your best bet since they offer great speeds. Either that or seperate connections with another CPU and modem and just pay for low speed on his connection. Which at&t offers a plan for 20$.. Your connection can only withstand so much! Good Luck

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


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.
