Lag playing Fifa

Hi I get a lot of lag while playing Fifa online on the xbox, the game just doesn't seem to respond to my inputs as sharply as it does when I'm playing offline. If I reset my connection it seems better for a while, but then it goes back to how it was. Quite often while I'm playing my son will be online as well, either watching youtube or playing online on his xbox 360, but I still seem to get the same problem when he isn't.

 

I have 30mb broadband and I'm wondering whether upgrading to 50 or 100 would improve the situation, or if there might be some other issue?

Re: Lag playing Fifa

Hi Drapes,

 

Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear you're having trouble with Fifa. Before you think of upgrading let's see what could be causing this. I've just checked your connection and everything looks healthy there. How are you connecting to the hub? Over a wired or wireless connection? If wireless could you try a wired connection and let us know if this improves anything?

Re: Lag playing Fifa

Hi John, thanks for replying.

 

I changed from wireless to wired a few months ago and it is better, but I still have problems. If I reset my router it's great for 4-5 games and then it starts to lag again..

Re: Lag playing Fifa

Hi Drapes,

 

Thanks for letting us know that it's wired. This narrows down the possible causes a huge amount already! Could you try the hub in modem mode with the xbox connected directly? This will eliminate any other devices on the local network taking up bandwidth as well as any of the hubs router functions. 

Modem mode will mean only one device can connect at a time so it will be a bit of a pain for your son not being online at the same time. This is only temporary and for testing purposes so just to reassure you can get back to router mode once you've tested.

Thanks 

John

Re: Lag playing Fifa

Thanks for trying that Drapes,

 

If you're getting the same issue in modem mode then it won't be caused by the hub or any device in your home. Let's try a few traces to the fifa servers you play on to see where the problem begins.

You'll have to run the trace on a PC or laptop. If you could copy and paste the results here for us to take a look that would be great Smiley Happy
