This same thing happens to me! I'm not really sure but it only happens when I am playing a game on live. I haven't really done anything about it since I've been playing Oblivion a lot lately.

It's probably your connection... is your ISP dsl? If so that's probably why... my cable internet is rock solid.

Sometimes wireless routers can act funky when using an ethernet cable for some reason... But try looking at your DHCP settings.. should be under basic setup. You can access these settings by typing 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 (usually) into your web browser and then logging onto your router. The user name and password are defaulted to 'admin' for both. The specific setting I would check is 'client lease time'. It might be set too short to be of any use. Also, just make sure your DHCP server isn't set to only allow 1 or 2 users at a time, as another PC may be knocking it off the network periodically.

Nope, I've got cable Internet. I think there might be a problem with my router since I've gotten a new one and before that xbox live worked great. What I'm trying to figure out is why can I play counter-strike: source with a good ping and not be able to play my xbl properly.

can you access your router like I said? If so, there should be a page with all your DHCP settings on it.. Just look for anything that says maximum users/clients/etc/etc. If you can't find anything like that then you are going to have to look up specific router information. I have a Linksys and have never had much trouble with it, so it may be a brand thing.

the only DHCP settings i have been able to find are  DHCP server and DHCP IP adress pool neither have any tools to limit or change number of clients. i am beginning to think this myt b a router problem and that im gna have to get a linksys

It sounds more like a connection issue to me. Check the internet for a speed test, run it. If your speed test is low, check all your DSL filters and phone jacks. Make sure you have a filter on every connected phone line. This includes direct tv boxes with phone lines plugged in. Or Cable boxes with phone lines plugged in. If all of them have filters and you are still getting bad speed test, call the company, give them the "WTF" speech, and make em fix it.

how do i do a speed test ?

#17 Posted by darksusperia (6943 posts) -
find a speed test site or download a speed test program, google it. also, are you using a rather long phone cable?? if so that can also be an issue, if you know how to cable, make a new phone cable out of ethernet cables as it will hold the signal better over a longer distance then your normal phone line. that fixed my drop out issues. Also, Im sure you may have already done this, but restart your router..

If your using a modem connection

Let your 360 find your connection automaticly

1.Unplug modem from power leave for about 3 mins
2.Connect ethernet cable to modem
3.Plug modem back in
4.Turn on your XBOX 360

That is really bad. You can't play on a connection like that. I have cable. It is 6,000 kbps down and 1,500 kb upload. I think you need to talk to your dsl provider and up the connection to a 3.0 megabyte download.
