Xbox 360

We are on the Optik 50/10

I have a couple questions, First; I have Xbox 360 wired to the router (not wireless), but for sometime now the router sees it as a wireless device, why? Second; online gaming has been getting consistently worse, bad lag, stuttering, sluggish, what can we do? Gaming is all but gone now. It feels as though the bandwidth is being slowed to the Xbox.

Xbox has known issues with gaming regardless of ISP. A quick google search will show you that. It is definitely not a new thing.

 

If the router is seeing it as a wireless connection, ensure the wifi is shut off on the Xbox or have the Xbox forget your wireless network to prevent it from connecting.

What a load of crap, it's everyone else not us story ...Crap! Of course it will never every be something Telus is doing, Oh no, but it is always something MS is not doing. When you are always blaming someone else then you know somewhere in there the truth is you are also to blame. Telus you never offer any useful input just the same word for word responses. Also, the fact that our router is not reporting devices connected correctly maybe it's a problem with the routers firmware, it started happening after the firmware update. As a long time gamer and knowing many others that game Playstation and Xbox it is pretty evident connections to these consoles for whatever reason has been slowed, it has never been worse.

You'll also find most of the people here are end users, not Telus employees, so what we say isn't some corporate speak.

 

If you do not learn the causes or scope of the problem, then yes, use Telus as your convenient scapegoat. You'll find that no ISP is purposely throttling game traffic. It's not high enough bandwidth for them to care about.

 

If you actually feel like troubleshooting, you can start with Microsoft's troubleshooting guide. Note: with the speedtest results, the tests default to the closest server to you, not where Xbox Live has their servers and it won't take into account any congestion within Xbox Live or the network path between Telus and XBL. If you decide you want to go the extra step, if you are wired, set up DMZ on the router and ensure the Xbox is on that port. (Search the forums here or web for more info on that)
