Xbox Live Downloads - Really slow!

Hey,

I've just bought the xBox 360 Slim 250GB and have it connected wirelessly to my network. It plays games fine but yet it takes an age to download anything from the marketplace.. which as you can imagine trying to download a 3GB game is a bit of a joke!.

I thought at first it was to do with me being NAT: Moderate so I added my Xbox IP to DMZ and now it is reading Nat:Open...

Unfortunately it hasn't solved the problem.. the downloads are still really slow.

Any ideas?

Well you could try different wireless channels on your router to see if that helps www.unofficialguidetolive.co.uk/.../114-troubleshooting-and-improving-wireless

But it might be just down to traffic shaping with your ISP, contention etc, some ISP shape on different content

I can't really try wired because my wire is upstairs and I have no TV up there... don't really want to carry a 50" upstairs to try it xD

Yeah it seems to be the same speed at all times of the day.

Have you tried wired to see if it improves? I've say its either the wireless setup or your ISP to be honest, is it the same speeds at all times of day or just peak hours?

Yes 4MBPs... normally downloads at 500KBps on the laptop but its not reaching those speeds on xBox downloads... more like 100KBps.

How will I know the difference if I don't have a TV to be able to see it through when connected to the ethernet cable? :S

Do you mean 4 Mbps?  Anyway, while that is certainly sufficient to play multiplayer, it will take a while to download a 3GB file.

 

As far as the ethernet cable, that would connect between your xbox and your router so you can compare any difference in download speeds.
