    Help Me High Heaven Lol!

    here is my last speed test to show i am getting what i'm paying for

    Last Result:
    Download Speed: 9286 kbps (1160.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 905 kbps (113.1 KB/sec transfer rate)


    those are my results for a speed test that i ran. anyone who knows xbox live know that those results are enough to play/hosting on live. the issue i'm having here is hosting. i just purchased this expensive dlink dgl 4300 gaming router.(with gaming fuel technology) i did so hoping it would correct my problem. i still have people playing gears rainbow and couple of other complaining about lag...i can see lag because they have red and yellow bars on rainbow...i have gaming fuel enabled on the router...i've directly connected to the 360 with the modem itself and still get the same issues...called isp and they say signals and such are better than good...they've been out here three or four times in the past three months...what am i doing wrong?

    and what do you expect from people with red and yellow tags/bars when they are in .uk, .kr, .hu etc etc you are never gonna be able to play or host the game without lag.
    You should be fine in north america, set your router to DMZ or open required ports.

    Your problem is hosting? If your upload isnt enough to hsot, then either dont host or buy a faster connection.


    EDIT: If you have PCs connected to the router do nto set it to DMZ.

    it is more than enough to host. i've seen people with worse connections host more people

    Leaves your network wide open, no NAT protection.

    A game probably needs 16k or so for each person.

    So figure hosting for 6-7 people.

    Perhaps you should check if the game you want to host on requires a different port than what is nec. to get onto xbox live.. some games have different port req.
