I have an older Dlink G router that I have hardwired to my 360. My internet connection is 9mbps down and 1mbps up. If I get a better router, or switch to a higher bandwidth connection will make xbox live work better?
The reason I ask is because I was talking to some guys (who spend waaay too much time playing call of duty: black ops) some general questions about the game and they were saying that connection has a lot to do with performance in multiplayer (all other factors being equal obviously ie. skill level) So what I'm wondering is where I can improve.
If I get the greatest router ever but have an poor internet connection the router won't be doing me much good and vice versa. but If i buy the most expensive router I can and the highest amount of bandwidth I can I don't see how that will help either because even if a better connection will help you in-game, it can only be up to a certain point right?
Basically what I'm trying to do is see if i can upgrade my setup to improve performance but not go into overkill. This might sound confusing but let me know if i can clear anything up.
