Instablity on Xbox live

I have been on BT homehub for the last12 months witha 1.2mb connection,recently i havehad major issues with online gaming.I can connect to live fine and i have never had any NAT problems.I can play games for 2-3 hours fine then all of a sudden i experience MAJOR lag issues.

 

I have to reset the hub at least 2-3 times and turn on and off xbox live application sharing till i get a stable connection for playing games?

 

 

My question is can i set up the router settings in anyway to stop me constantly reseting? has anyone else experienced this?

 

At the moment i play Bc2 and Black ops,but i never really had this issue with MW2.

 

At all times my laptop/pc connections are fine and stable and rarely cause me any issues,and for gaming my upload/download is capped on each other device toensure i have the nessecary bandwidth available.

 

 

any help welcomed

Re: Instablity on Xbox live

For some reason the Black Ops has been a problem, my son has experienced 'some' lag playing Black Ops but disconnecting from the game then reconnecting usually solves the problem.

 

Looking at your router stats you should be getting a better connection than your are, but resetting will reduce your ip profile, if you run a test at http://speedtester.bt.com/ and post the results some of the more knowledgeable on here will give some advice. But constantly resetting is a no, no Smiley Happy

Keep trying it does have a habit of 'falling over' if it's busy....

Re: Instablity on Xbox live

been on live with my connection for a year,havnt played BC2 in a week,its hard to tell if the lag is on your end or on the server end cause EA are cheap skates lol

 

When playing i make sure i have  plenty of free bandwith, 50k down and 30k up  minimum.

 

Played BO from 3 till 6 2day no problems,but i expect it to die if i try after 7 😕

Re: Instablity on Xbox live

I would suggest it the servers, they perhaps some of the cheapest servers you get and also amongst the worst, welcome to franchise gaming. If your are experiencing this for the first time from EAs newsest Call of duty you are very lucky. Its a cash cow franchise.
