      yep, all ethernet is the same pretty much so give it a go with that and see if it improves - if so, job done!!

      Be aware that Xbox live is still having serious issues, it's been discussed on the official Xbox forums, the main US discussion thread is hitting 200 pages.

      Even though it has meant to be fixed, peak time useage of Xbox live is pretty bad apparently.

      Kontiki may be your problem? It has been for me in the past. Get it deleted or turned off at the least. Google it for info on how to (look under kontiki service or kservice.exe - its a P2P prgram that eats bandwidth). My WoW latency was shocking until I stmubled across this (1.1k) but now I've turned it off I'm back to my normal latency (50 or so depending on where I am in the game).

      Hope this helps.

      I have wired up my modem to my computer and that is my results from speedtest.net when i was on wireless it was on about 3500-4000 kbps but the upload speed has not changed, my games only have improved slightly but high ping is still an issue, i have dropped into the 80-95 from 90-105 and this is on games like counterstrike and battlefield2. MMORPG have improved slightly also but it still is not right. My friends have 40-50 and there all on 8meg broadband one is with orange cable and the other AOL wireless and his is perfect, is it just Sky that have a crap broadband?

      another thing you may want to try is phone/email to get your may delays reduced (there is alot of info on this site about it, have a quick search and see what other people have had done)

      I had problems with games via wireless on my PC and also on X-Box, Tried long ethernet cable wich solved them instantly, got my max delays reduced and picked up a couple of homeplug adapters off e-bay to avoid cables ruinning around the house and now have no problems.

      Pings to BBC around the 30-35ms mark and a good stable connection to X-Box live (when Microsoft allows it anyway).

      I get 16mb downloads all the time via ethernet but when I was on wireless it was running at 16mb then zero then 2mb and so on, scrap wireless, turn it off at the router which will reduce any security issues and away you go.

      Sky Broadband is now working very well for me, if only I could sort out this damn e-mail problem :-)

      Re: Extremely high ping in online games and bad speedtest HELP

      Hi All,

      We are on Mid Broadband and I was wondering if someone could take a glance at these stats (Below). Going to checking master socket and have already asked Sky to check our connection speed and also Max delay settings as we are due to be hooking up a 360 in the next 2 weeks. My plan is to put the xbox onto the router via wired connection and use wireless purely for laptop when browsing. Only issue is that router has a 2 meter (roughly) extension between it and master socket. Need to think how I can get round this, but might just connect router direct and then run RJ cable direct to 360 from there.. Thanks for any help in advance.

      I would definitely do away with the extension if I were you. As for lowering max delays, wait until you have your xbox hooked up and see how it is. You may feel that it is fine as it is.

      ^^^Yes, definetely ditch the extension and use longer ethernet cables or hardwire a cat 5e extension to the routers existing position.
