Try starting a game with people you know locally, if your ping between users is too high it will be perceived as lag. when the server catches up with you, your system misses the refresh cycle with the other players and it disconnects you. a more responsive internet helps. Also if you are at a NAT3 connection it can cause problems. check your internet settings and see what it says, there are many online guides to setting to a lower NAT.

Hope this helps.

I have terrible lag with the servers when I play NHL 11 on my 360. I have tried playing different games such as call of duty and halo reach and very minimal lag problems if any. I have had my wireless...


This is not a problem with your equipment it is a server issue with the NHL or EA servers, it also depends on the hosting gamer an where they are when you enter into a game online.

Try hosting a game yourself and see what the connection is like then, if your connection is good then the host of the games you play is the problem, but if you have connection problems when you host a game then EA servers are the problem....You may need to wait a month or so till they upgrade they server capacity to take the loads.

Hope this help Aaron.

We start playing the game on line it freezes and it also says the lobby is closed

Which game? some games give the host the ability to "kick" some players from the lobby. Some use this as a way to gain advantage during the game if they are losing. You also may be experiencing lag or internet connectivity issues.
