If you are on Wifi then you will have to change the wireless channel and use the option "upto 145mbps". If you're on Ethernet, welcome to the worst broadband for gaming!

 

Also MW3 has lag issues since last patch anyway, there are 1000's of tweets on 402's Twitter every day about the lag issue.

Http://192.168.0.1 from a web browser. admin as the username and changeme as the password. Go to advanced settings>wireless settings, change the options to upto 145mbps and channel to 6 or 11. Try that.

Re: Xbox 360 terrible internet connection!

I would like to say that i am having a problem that sounds similar to Karens. Here is a link leading to a thread on the Xbox Support Forum that other Xbox Live users are posting on

http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/9/t/241532.aspx?PageIndex=8

My Xbox User name is NonExistent God and my posts are on pages 6 and 8. My posts describe my problem exactly and i think it is very similar to what is happening to most other people on that thread. Any help is appreciated but by the sounds of it i think the problem may be on Virgin's side.

Re: Xbox 360 terrible internet connection!

Getting same problem since Friday last week, wireless connection to all other devices are fine sometimes and so is my wired connection to my PC unless its at peak times where its just shocking. I have 10mb service with super hub, xbox live signs in but disconnects every 5-10mins. I have tried the port forwarding to open all the ports for xbox live but this did not resolve the issue. I have a wired connection to my xbox.

 

Only one thing i have noticed is when i checked the network settings last night on my xbox the IP address was a load of random numbers and not the IP address it should have been. So i cleared it and tried to connect again, it connected and the ip address changed back to what it always was but got disconnected in less than 4 mins! Is there anything else i can try?

 

I thought about clearing the cache on the xbox, havent yet as im pretty sure this has nothing to do with network data/settings on the xbox, am i right?

 

Very frustrating - to think i gave up a adsl bt connection at less than 2mb speed where i had no problem ever with online gaming. Hoping VM was going to be faster and better service, now im stuck with a connection thats all over the place, lag everyday when i play, connection drop outs and now cant even connect to xbox live for more than 5/10 mins.

 

Im open for suggestions or advice purely because im now tied into a contract with VM. If i wasnt i would get rid to be honest. Thank you
