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.

I have frontier services with a net gear modem/router i was told by xbox live to get a d-link router an it would help my problem with running 2 xbox 360 with no lag whats so ever but dont know what im...


well, unless the D-link is also a modem/router, I don't see how ADDING the D-link router to a lagging network will reduce said lag. They probably wanted you to REPLACE the current router with that one.....

will "frontier service" allow that router to be set in a "modem-only" setting ? You'll have to get with them on that. as for the D-link, there are manuals as well as an Online Emulator that simulates the Router interface so you can see how to set it up....BEFORE you set it up !

[PS: tracking-down lag problems can be tricky....you should be experiencing bad lag with all sites for it to be your hardware....

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!

The only computer I have is a Dell Insprion E1505 laptop and it is connected to a "COMCAST" cable modem. Windows XP, not Vista is installed. I purchased a LINKSYS WRT54G wireless router. I installed the setup disk and connected the modem to the router, and the router to the computer as step one, but when step two had me disconnect the router from the laptop so it could connect via wireless network, it just says "easylink advisor could not establish a wireless connection with the router
two laptops, a desktop PC and my son has Xbox live. I recently bought the Linksys wireless-g router with speed boost and that didn't work. If any of the laptops were on, the other wouldn't work and my son's Xbox live would lag. I was thinking about exchanging it for the Linsys wireless-N broadband router but then I read the reviews and they were horrible. I need something of that sort but something that isn't known for being unreliable and dying.
I bought the Turtle Beach X41 Headset, and it is causing some problems with my wireless connection. Due to a number of reasons, it is not possible to directly hook up my 360 to my modem. So, if I bought a new router that can operate on a 802.11a frequency, would that help or not? My current router is a Linksys Wireless G, 2.4GHz, router. Microsoft has said that an 802.11a frequency router could fix problems with other wireless electronics. If it would help, which router should I buy? I've read a few reviews for the Linksys WGA54AG 802.11a, and everyone says it doesn't work good. Any suggestions on another brand
i tink with these you can do some thing

yeah a better modem would be the easiest thing to do because it's clear that the one you've got is either not transmtting properly or is just the unit you'vee got has a fault in it

Connection Interrupted


Well, the issue you are experiencing could be caused by slow internet. Even if you have a connection - it may be a slow one that can't keep up with the server. Another reason that this could be happening is the server itself is lagging, but if it happens to you consistantly I would put bets on it being your internet.

Xbox 360 lag whilst on my laptop


performance may be due to traffic bursts from the xbox. One thing you can try is to decrease the encryption to a low setting as a test and see what happens. You also may want a higher powered router if you want to get the best out of the experience. Try to guage your speed and data rate over the wireless and if possible compare with a friends setup.

Unplug the router for 30 seconds, then plug it back in. Reboot any computers or game consoles as well.

Two words:
I'm sorry.

My parents use satellite as their primary internet connection. We have had a heck of a time getting a router to work in their configuration because of the lag involved in the satellite communication. In a nutshell, but the time the data gets requested and sent back to your computer through the satellite your computer got tired of waiting and "times out" or give up on that data. You can try to purchase a wireless router and connect it up to the satellite modem and see how it works, but I wouldn't hold my breath (the best we've been able to do is get it work 1/2 of the time).

By the way because of the lag of satellite communication, online gaming with your PS3 would difficult, but not impossible. My younger brothers use my parent's connection for their Wii & Xbox.

I just with the ISPs would get on the ball and roll fiber to everyone's house. I have to say I love my fiber connection!
