When I'm attempting to play NHL 12 with a friend I have issues of getting kicked out of the Xbox live party and the online game we are both in. If I rejoin the party, he notes that my voice chat is lagging. When he is talking I notice no lag. I have ran the connection test on my console several times getting different status reports each time. It's odd because I'll play any other game and my connection is fine and no issues with the party or anything. I have noticed my dashboard lagging a bit more in the past month, but I'm not exactly sure why. When I play games by myself or with other friends I have no issues. The issue also seems to be happening around 2am EST as well. During the day we seem to have no problems. His NAT is open as well. We both have tried clearing the system cache with no change also. Today we can't even connect via party chat or private chat during the day which is strange. We both have the same ISP, which is Comcast, and we live about 5 minutes from each other. What happens most of the time is we are in party chat, the game starts lagging, then we are both kicked out of party chat and put right back in, In the meantime the game has ended and claims that I lost connection to EA. If any one could help I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm just not sure what is at fault here. Here is some information.
This is the current status report.
