Lagging when im playing online games

hi, i was wondering if there was anything that i could do or that would help me when im playing online on my xbox.

 

Everytime i try to play a game it lags and has been doing this for the past few months, it is occuring on fifa and currently on counter strike, im starting to get frustrated so i was wondering if anyone would be able to help me fix it or adjust it slightly so it wouldnt do it as much. When i play the games i have all the wifi devices in the house off (apart from my xbox) so i cant understand why it is doing it. many thanks mark

Re: Lagging when im playing online games

are you connecting the xbox wired or wireless if wireless then i suggest trying a wired connection to it as wireless is not good for gaming

 wireless is prone to to many sorts of interference that cause packets to be resent there fore increasing latency you could also consider powerlines rather than wireless

As suggested Mark you simply wont beat a wired connection either direct or powerline.
