    Anyone use 2 xboxs on live?

    At the moment me and my brother are sharing an xbox - for xmas he is thinking about getting 1 for his room.

    But i was wondering - if we are both playing live at the same time are we more likely to lag?

    My mate and his brother both play a the same time and he still gets 4 bars on COD4 but its all about how fast your broadband is, namely your upload speed, upload speeds in the UK are awful

    i used to do it with my brother, 2 tv's and 2 consoles right next to each other - was great fun
    but it did lag abit, but this was quite a few years ago, so if you got a decent speed connection
    might not make a difference.

    I play with my brother online, sometimes it can lag but 90% of time its is a good connection.

    As stated above it depends on broadband quality, who are you with and how fast download and upload are you getting?

    i run 2 xbox 360's on Live,no problems since i ditched talktalk (kept disconnecting), now with post office and using zyxel wirless router (version one),this has a setting for xbox live traffic management which works well,note post office supply version 2 of this router which does not have the xbox live configuration tool but still gives a stable connection.

    Only messing, as long as they dont throttle you at peak times you should be ok, speed is quite good

    Im jealous :oops:

    Sorry op for going a bit off topic, but in a nutshell you shouldnt have any problems :thumbsup:

    That should be enough for 2 xboxs

    I run two 360's (soon to be three) and have little to no lag. I only get lag at peak times when tons of people in my local area are all using the internet at once.

    we have one xbox upstairs running on wireless and one downstairs plugged into computer both work fine well i should say no one moaning about lag just moaning about little brother up stairs trying to ruin big brothers downstairs game lol

    448Kbps is the standard upload rate on BT/wholesale upto 8Meg broadband offerings. Some people (mostly businesses) have uploads of 768Kbps on rate adaptive ADSL. Fixed rate products 2,1,1/2 all have uploads of 256Kbps. ADSL2+ can offer uploads of upto 1.3Mbps.
