      What ping rate do you get from your PC? Open a Command Prompt a type ping bbc.co.uk see what you get.

      It seems to me if you are getting a good result with your PC and a bad one with the Xbox, changing the line profile is not going to make much of a difference.
      Command prompt is showing average 27ms ping.

If you have tried the DMZ route make sure UPNP is disabled in your xbox as it might conflict with DMZ. Another thing to try is changing your DNS servers on your xbox use namebench(https://code.google.com/p/namebench/) to attain your best servers. What game is it your getting lag issues with on your xbox ?.
      Super Street Fighter 4 is the game giving me issues. Any moderate amount of lag makes it unplayable. The only other game I play online is worms where lag doesn't matter.

      That is not too terrible. Try changing the port in the router you are using for the Xbox and maybe try another ethernet cable.

      Have you opened the correct ports in your router?

      Do you mean the physical port / ethernet socket?

      I don't think so, I was under the impression that xbox live doesn't need port forwarding.

      Yes, although all the ethernet ports are supposed to be equal, you can find that one is faster/slower than another.

      I don't think so, I was under the impression that xbox live doesn't need port forwarding.
      It should work OK with UPnP, but opening ports or preferably putting the Xbox address in the DMZ is reckoned to be the best.

      I'm not being funny but have you considered it might be the host with the bad connection which would cause you to lag on the game.

      Still having problems with lag on xbox live especially with Street Fighter IV AE. Its unplayable at all times. I have posted statistics from our router below. Can anyone comment if these are acceptable numbers or is there anything here which could indicate a problem with our connection.

      Your speed is well below what it should be for your attenuation. This could indicate errors on your line which can effect your latency. If you have extensions can you plug into the Test socket and post your stats from there. Used only the ADSL cable and filter supplied by Sky.
