XBOX ONE LAG FIXED!!! FIFA 17 ETC, READ PLEASE!

Hi guys. For absolutely ages I've been having connection issues with my xbox one, causing horrendous in game lag which completely ruins any game, but after months and months I have FINALLY found a fix and it's absolutely nothing to do with your internet..!

For those of you who recievethe speeds, but suffer from lag, follow these steps on you xbox one console. This has made my connection as smooth as a baby's bum, and I hope to god it helps with yours too! 

Sign in to your xbox live account on your xbox one,

go to settings >> all settings>> Disc & Blu-ray >> Persistent storage >> Clear persistent storage. Do this 3 times. 

THEN:

Back out to the settings page >> network >>network settings>> Test multiplayer connection.. 
When it comes up with "EVERYTHING IS GOOD" Don't exit the screen, but hold down the off button for 8-10 seconds so your xbox completely shuts down. take out all wires from the back of your xbox and put a 2 minute timer on. After two minutes, put all wires back in, turn your xbox on, and the problem will be solved!


Please try this guys if you are suffering from in game lag on the xbox one console because I can't stress enough how many different things i tried before figuring this out. Don't miss any of the steps out and please let me know if this helps you! I hope it does as much as it's helped me! Cheers guys, Nathan.

Clearing memory / power cycling.


Sounds like pretty general advice that can't hurt to do regularly.

Hi there Sean1972,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

Sorry to read you are having issues whilst playing Fifa 17. I know how frustrating this can be.

 

At the moment I am unable to see your power levels from my side, if you can post the downstream and upstream from the router settings that would be very helpful. To do this type in 192.168.0.1 in the address bar, no need to sign in, on the top right you will see router status. Within here you will have downstream, upstream and network log. You can copy and paste this information, that would be great.

 

Is the Xbox One connected through a wired or wireless connection? If wireless have you tried through wired to see if that helps?

 

Hope to hear from you soon

Sam

Sean I am exactly the same mate, about week and half ago my FUT stats were 19-1-3 now I am 22-2-34. I've never ever been this bad, I've dropped two leagues in a row now. There is definitely something going wrong somewhere.

Re: XBOX ONE LAG FIXED!!! FIFA 17 ETC, READ PLEASE!

The issue of lag is caused by bufferbloat which negatively affects latency..... Bufferbloat is normal in cable internet connections mainly because cable modems have huge buffers....

I solved this issue by buying a decent router, ubnt EdgeRouter Pro-8 (it's a great router but most in the edgemax range should be adequate) and implementing QoS on the interface I assigned to the wan... QoS is available in some consumer grade routers but you will notice it will destroy your speed massively as they are rubbish devices Smiley Tongue

I do sacrifice a little speed, but the quality of the connection is improved by an order of magnitude...

Note this will not help the Hub 3 issues as they are caused by rubbish firmware from intel, for which hopefully there will be a fix out soon....
