I’ve been having problems with this for months, it makes playing online a pain in the ass.
My setup is a DSL modem, with the 360 hardwired to the router/modem… I get 10mb/s (this is the best internet aval up here) which should be enough to run COD no prob.
Every couple of games, i’ll get kicked off xbox live, it’ll sign me off and say “disconnected”
I am not too smart when it comes to computers, I have all the ports open that need to be in my router for the xbox to run online… I’ve been on the phone constantly with the modem company and they’ve tried everything… is this an xbox problem or do I need to contact my ISP?
Every time I call my ISP they do a speed test and everything is fine…they say nothing is wrong with the connection…the speed is fine, it’s just a pain in the ass getting kicked off xbox live every 20-30 minutes.
That will put you at a flashing cursor. What’s happening is it’s pinging google.com over and over and writing the results to the pingtest.txt file. Let that sit there for about 45 minutes, then hit CTRL+C. Now go to your C drive and you should see a big text file called pingtest.txt. Open it up and it should look like this:

Except you’ll have page after page of them. Look for blocks where instead of a XX millisecond response you see request timed out. If you get a lot of request timed out, especially if they’re grouped together, that’s where your connection is dropping and that means it’s a router/ISP issue. If on the other hand you get page after page of good clean pings the problem is with your xbox.
