      Again, XBox connection keeps dropping...

      I play xbox most of the time every week.
      Now I keep getting very bad lag and disconnected every 5-10 minutes.
      Its happened in the past but it just worked itself off, and people on this forum told me sky put a cap to my internet or something.

      Im sick of getting the lag, heres the stats



      The computer seems to have fine connection, and all other computers seem to be fine aswell.

      Help is appreciated.

      Also, I rang sky, to have a look at my account they need a password, but im not sure what it is, help on that subject is also appreciated.

      You don't need the password if you are the account holder.

      If you are experiencing lag on gaming then you might need to call and get an 8ms max delay/gamer profile.

      Do you no the location of the server that you are connecting to? if the server isn't in the uk then your ping times are going to rise

      Do you game wirelessly? that could also cause a rise in your pings.

      You might want to have a look at homeplugs instead of wireless.

      I'd suggest to be patient awaiting a reply.

      You've had sync for the past ~21 hours, so if you're gaming wirelessly use an ethernet cable.
