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!

I can log on to my wireless account and get online, but then it i lose the signal, and when i scan, it picks up signal stenght on 90 % but wont connect, I can hard wire it and i get online with no...


The problem lies in the wireless connection. Either the wireless adapter on the game console, or with your wireless router. Although wireless internet makes it easier to get online and play, it is actually the worst choice for online gaming. this is due to the lag time in the signal relay to the router. Wired internet is the best choice for online gaming. If you can hook your console up to a wired internet connection, then I suggest you do that.

Why does my xbox lag i got wireless router and modem but it started lagging 3 months ago for no apparent reason, no computer just laptop and that works fine upstairs in the same room as x box


There could be a trojan in one of the pc's that is leaking into the xbox making it run bad. Believe it or not, it was happening to our xbox. 3 pc's on one modem wireless, all were fine but one and the xbox 360 was direct into the modem via ethernet. We'd take my sons pc off line and the xbox would work great. Put the pc back online (connected to wireless) and the connection on xbox was back to awful.

Check and see if that's the problem.

Lag lag lag lag


Hi there,

Some ways to get rid of your lag is to change internet service providers. If you have a wireless adapter, you may also want to get a new router. If you also have an older router, you may need to change that even you don't use the wireless internet. And for the overheating 360, it should not get hot after that amount of time. Move away from your tv, put it on a flat hard surface.(Not Carpet!), and move it away from a wall that might be preventing it's ventilation.

Hope This Helps,
C13295 ;)

How do i connect to xbox live with a router


Shared connection with a modem and a router
1. Turn the modem off, and then turn it back on. Then turn the router power off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the modem and the router.

Power cycle the modem first, and then power cycle the router. To power cycle these devices, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps:
a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the modem by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait several minutes for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the modem shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
2. If power cycling your modem and router does not resolve the problem, try connecting the Xbox 360 console to Xbox LIVE by using the modem only. This eliminates any configuration problems on the router. If this setup works without the router, there is probably a configuration issue with the router. See the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
3. Verify that your router's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service has been enabled. DHCP enables the router to assign IP addresses to the computers and consoles on your network when you go online. If you need help with this, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
4. If you manually entered an IP address, gateway, subnet mask and/or DNS servers in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard , verify that it they are correct. At this point, you can also set your IP settings to Automatic. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Move to the System area.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Automatic.
5. If your ISP requires Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) settings, try connecting to only the modem after you enter these settings in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard. Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard.

Note Some ISPs may require Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/resources/glossary.htm#ethernet) (PPPoE) settings, This means that you may need settings such as a username and password in order to gain access to your ISP’s network. If you are unsure whether you have to enter these settings, please contact your ISP support group. At this point, if you can connect directly to the modem, see your router documentation to configure the PPPoE settings correctly on the router.
6. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.

If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
Shared connection with a gateway device (combined modem and router)
1. Make sure that the gateway is turned on. A gateway integrates a high-speed Internet modem with a router.
2. Verify that there is network activity by looking for the sequence of blinking lights on your gateway that generally indicate Wide Area Network (WAN), Local Area Network (LAN), and connected power status.
Note These names will vary from model to model.
3. Turn the gateway device off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the gateway. To power cycle this device, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps:
a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the gateway by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the gateway shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
4. The IP address that you entered in to the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard may be incorrect. Be sure that this address is correct, or set your IP settings to Automatic in the Xbox Dashboard.
5. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.

If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing
Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing
1. Verify that you can surf the Internet from your PC. If you cannot surf the Internet, there is probably a problem with your Internet connection. Contact your ISP for support.

If you are using a USB modem to connect to the Internet, the modem will be listed in the "Dial-up" window as the connecter that you are sharing and that you have configured. To verify that Internet Connection Sharing configured it correctly, use the following steps:
a. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
b. In Control Panel, double-click Network Connections.
c. Right-click your broadband connection, and then click Properties.
d. In the Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
e. Click to select the Allow other users to connect through this computer’s internet connection check box.
f. Click OK.
Ethernet Properties
2. Power cycle the modem. If the modem does not have an on and off switch, unplug the modem from the power outlet. You cannot follow this step if you are using a USB modem. Instead, go to the next step. You must follow this step if you are switching the modem between the Xbox 360 console and a computer.
3. On the computer, click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
4. On the View menu, click Tiles.
5. If the connection is listed as Firewalled, the firewall may have to be configured. See your firewall documentation.
6. Enter manual settings in the Xbox 360 Dashboard for IP address, subnet mask, DNS address and gateway and test the connection: To edit the settings:
a. In the Xbox 360 dashboard, move to the System section.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Edit Settings.
d. Enter the following:
• IP Address : 192.168.0.2
• Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
• Default Gateway : 192.168.0.1
• DNS server (Primary): 192.168.0.1
• DNS server (Secondary): 192.168.0.1Xbox 360: Test Xbox LIVE connection fails at IP address
