      new sky line and black ops 360

      new line was installed on the 16th of march migrated from plusnet (wholesale) went away on holiday on the 18th came back tuesday tried gaming for thd first time on my new line.

      Black ops was game of choice and the games were very very laggy and when i was host it was bloody awful too (for everyone else)

      firewall is disabled so nat/port forwarding isnt an issue xbox is static and wired

      syncing at just under 17mb and 950kb black opps reports bandwidth at 799 previously on plusnet it was about 350

      oh its one of those new sagem boxes

      any ideas folks ?

      Do you know the server location that you are connecting to?

      Click start, programs, accessories, right click command prompt and run as administrator.

      Could you ping and tracert bbc.co.uk and post the results

      There is a good chance that you are already on a "Gamer Profile" with your max delays set at 8/8ms.

      Does the issue only occur at peak times?
      There has been some backhaul issues recently affecting some exchanges.

      See Here for a list of affected exchanges

      Yup and if they are located in America your ping will sky rocket.

      You should have the option of making sure that the host is in the uk.

      The host is normally the person with the best connection
      so if there is an american playing, chances are he will have the best connection.

      I think that the old 2504 password extractor works for the new 2504n

      Although there is a good chance that you are already on a "Gamer Profile" we should be able to see when you post the ping and tracert.

      If you are not all you will have to do is give sky a call and ask to be changed to one.

      Happy days.

      Sounds like you weren't on a gamer profile before then

      The difference though will be less than 0.02 of a second.
