Internet keeps dropping while playing xbox live.

While I play call of duty online my internet keeps dropping, It only seems to drop while I am in a lobby and never while I am actually playing a map. I have tried port forwarding and swapping wireless channels several times. I have a BT homehub 2, and roughy 5mb down and 0.3mb up connection. 

 

Any idea what the issue coud be, and how I could resolve it?

Try connecting the xbox using a direct cable, and not wireless.

Re: Internet keeps dropping while playing xbox live.

unfortunately wireless is not really suitable for gaming as there are to many outside sources of interference you could look at this link as an alternative if ethernet is not suitable http://forumhelp.dyndns.info/hardware/BT/btconhome.html

Re: Internet keeps dropping while playing xbox live.

This page offers some solutions.

BT Connected Home

 

But first of all, if possible, take your xbox downstairs and plug it directly into the home hub to see if it helps, even if only to prove it.
