General help with Xbox Live, broadband speed and wireless connection.

Hey everyone.

My internet speed is 10 MB, and the router is on my house's 2nd floor.

Downstairs, there is my Xbox Slim, which is using wireless connection to connect (duh) into Live.

The signal strength is 3 bars, and when I do a speedtest on the browser, the results oscilate from 1 MB to 5 MB.

I ordered Halo 4, and I wanna know if this setup is enough to play it with little to no lag, or if I pretty much need to buy a wire (consider this a last option, because they're kinda far).

Thank you.

Hey there leocano!

If the outcome from a speedtest, using a wireless connection, alters between 1-5 Mbit/s then i would suggest a wired solution with a straight-through Ethernet cable.
