Hello , im having issues while playing fifa online via cable , i have a virgin 500 mb connection , while im testing it, speed , ping everything looks fine but when im ingame the players are slow and unresponsive , tried 3 different cable still the same issue , if im playing over wifi works perfect if the console is next to the hub , but as its original location is in a different room i need a wire connection as the wifi signal over there is at 76 and facing the same lag as over cable , any suggestions please ?
Overkill on the cable, as Cat 5e or 6a are more than enough.
Have you tried a full factory reset on the Hub, as this has fixed ethernet issues for some users here. Note - this will remove any custom settings you may have made to the Hub, so will need setup again afterwards.
Remove any ethernet cables from the Hub and hold the pinhole reset switch for 60 seconds. Do NOT reboot the Hub, just let it do it's thing. Note you will need the passwords from the bottom of the Hub afterwards, so make sure they are legible.
