Look everywhere but no solutions! Network/internet is very good but 1 red bar in game! Fully detailed situation

Hi, I am kinda new to the forums because I don't really have anything to say. Now, I have a problem and I need some help so I am posting on the forums.

First, I have searched and tried every solutions I can find but nothing works!

Basically, my problem is my internet connection is good, everything is working fine but I have only 1 bar in a MP match! It lags so much! I played MW2 and BO. It is very annoying and frustrating and this has gone on for days. I tried setting up a static IP, reset the router/xbox, everything but nothing works.  My NAT is open. 4 bar connection, and yet, 1 bar in game. So frustrating! Just to let you know, I have to have a wireless connection because I don't have an ethernet cable for my xbox. And my xbox is in another room so I don't have a long wire. Please don't tell me to get one. I live in Canada and Rogers is my ISP. I hate it but I have to live with it. I have Linksys WRT160N version 3. I tried so many things like enable/disable UPNP, tried dmz, Qos, nothing works! Changed the network type like mixed, or wireless-g only, nothing works! I changed the MTU many times even to the value of 1364 and nothing.

I bought xbox live gold for 3 months and now, I can't even play, I am wasting time! I don't make money at all, I am only using money from grants and loans. Hope this issue is resolved because I don't want to waste my gold! And I want to play online! I never played the xbox before and now it is my first time and first time playing online!

Below is using the format.

What Country/State/Province do you live in? Ontario, Canada
Modem brand & model number:  Scientific Atlanta - from Rogers
Router brand & model number:  Linksys WRT160N version 3
Network Connection Type: Wireless
If Wireless, what type of encryption are you using? Tried many kinds, using WEP at the moment
Things you have tried:
Is UPnP Enabled? Tried it on and off.
Is NAT Type Open? Yes, NAT is open.
Any Error Codes you encounter: No errors.
What type of internet do you have? Cable/DSL/T1/3G? I have cable.  17.14 mbps. About 1-2 mb/s, it's fast.
Who is your ISP(Internet Service Provider)? Rogers. I hate Rogers and no, I can't switch ISP.
When you run "Test Xbox LIVE connection" what is the exact message shown on screen? No error messages, everything works fine.

 

 

Please help! I need this fixed. I don't know what to do anymore!

Hi,

 

The problem could be in a few places, the first thing I'd do is look at your wireless. And the easiest way to find out if its your wireless set-up is to go wired. I know you said you don't have a cable to do that, but what about as a test is it possible to go wired? If the problem goes away when wired we know where to look next

 

Or  you can go straight to changing your wireless setup. I would recommend changing channels as per the Tips for improving wireless here:-

Well, it's not possible. My xbox is in another room and I don't have a long wire. I don't think I can do a test. Oh yeh, my xbox wireless adapter is wireless G. This adapter has worked in the past.

I guess I can try changing the channels again. Thanks, but more help is appreciated.

Hi,

Well.. try changing the channels first and if one channel doesn't work any better try another one. Changing channels can work wonders, but if you don't want to take the advice, its up to you of course.

I never said I won't. I am trying it now and also changing the wireless type mixed, bg-mix, wireless-g only, wireless-n only, wireless-b only. I have like 11 channels, I will try some of them. I will get back to you on this.

Ok, I fixed it!  I just changed my network mode and channel width and it worked! It didn't work before but now it worked. Rather strange but it's fixed!

Here is the setting:

Network mode: Mixed

Channel width: auto(20mhz or 40mhz)

Channel: auto

upnp: on

MTU: 1364

Ports forwarded as well. Single port, just the 4 ports.

This setting may help out others.

Well thanks. If you didn't tell me to try changing the channels, I would never have thought to do it. Thanks! It definitely answers my question. Now I have a 4 bar connection and 4 bars in game. Thank you!

If I have more problems, I will post here!

Thank you again! :D

It's not working again! Stupid network and xbox live! I changed the different channels as well and it still NOT WORKING! I am getting frustrated! I spent so money on xbox live and the games and nothing is working! I am going to sell everything and hopefully I can get money back! I have lost all hope on console gaming.
