For the past few days I can't seem to get a steady match going with either Titanfall or PvZ. It's very frustrating considering how my PS4 has no network issues. There's also no one else on the internet while I'm playing.

I ran through the detailed network statistics, my results were:

Download speed: 5.71 Mbps
Upload speed: 2.03 Mbps
Download packet loss: 0%
Upload packet loss: 0%
MTU: 1480
latency: 107 ms
Wireless strength: 100%

I'd very much appreciate if someone could tell me this lag problem is only happening with my Xbone.


Just curios how much do you pay for that? I have download 50mbps and upload 5mbps. I pay like $75 a month.


Not too sure since my parents take care of that end, but its Comcast, so its pretty much the only option. Who's your ISP?

Now my NAT type just switched from open to strict for absolutely no reason.

This is absolutely infuriating.


That's what mine did.. I did that damn port forwarding to give it an open NAT again. It worked for literally 1 day and then went back to strict. No idea what to do anymore lol If you find a solution please share it lol

Will do man, I just restarted the console until it showed up as open, though I doubt its a permenant solution.

mine is Time Warner. I'm in San Antonio TX. My bro is in Houston and has terrible internet. He has 30mbps but it drops down to like 1mbps around 6pm. He cant use his cellphone on the wireless and stream Netflix at the same time, its that bad.

I am always lobby host with my friends because I have the fastest speed and there are issues when they try to host. Most of them are in Cali.

Don't trust the download/upload tests that the consoles report. Any of them. PS3 or PS4 or Xbox 360 or Xbox One. Just run the speed tests on your PC.

if the problem is because of multiple xboxes, that can get complicated depending on what router you have. I have a topic about that here:

Same for me, if there are multiple people in the house using the internet it slows to a crawl, very annoying.

I might have to check out that Asus RT-AC68. Its expensive as hell, but if it eliminates my WiFi problems for good, it'll be well worth it. Thanks for the heads up.

If you have to use WIFI, I would suggest the following:

http://s1.zetaboards.com/FewGoodMen/topic/2828983/1/#new

Find optimum WIFI channel and placement for your WIFI devices; Tutorial

You should be using WPA2 Personal with AES cipher type, found in your wireless router's wireless security settings.

Try different channels and see which one has the best signal strength. Look for signals that don't overlap with neighbors signals. Metageek.net has a neat program:

Select the inSSIDer program. install and run it on a computer that connects wirelessly, and it will show the channels of all the networks it can see. Also, move the laptop and move the router to different positions and locations to see what gives the best and most constant signal.

To increase the range and signal strength, you can try a parabolic antenna. You can build a parabolic antenna and attach it your router antenna, and also your device antennas. It may help boost the strength of the signal. There are more complex versions, but this is an easy one that I came across at Freeantennas.com:
