Xbox gaming slow
Posted on 2012-03-19
My internet is bad when it comes to gaming. When I'm playing games online, I always have "red bar" and lag a lot. I can't figure out why. My PC is free of any malware/spyware etc. I've tried rebooting the modem several times.
Speedtest.net reports DL speed of 2.67 and upload speed of 0.50 right now. I use CenturyLink as my ISP and I have a ZyXEL modem. I think the problem might be my xbox too though because often I have the PC off when I'm playing. The PC and the Xbox are both plugged into ports on the modem.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can get my connection speed up, or other things to test for? I've called customer support but they are of no help. Anything I should be checking for or testing that I'm missing? Thanks.
