How to Fix Xbox One Packet Loss

How to Fix Xbox One Packet Loss


I need your advice on how to fix Xbox One
packet loss. I understand the frustration; if you fix latency
but have a high packet loss, the game is just as unplayable online. So what do I do about packet loss? Microsoft’s default solution is rebooting,
I’m sorry, turning off, and then turning back on the Xbox One. Resetting the unit seems to be their default
solution. Next is resetting the modem. At least that has some basis in reality, if
the modem is malfunctioning. You could also do a trace route or ping the
Microsoft servers to see if the ISP is throttling your internet connection due to sheer load
or if you might have been blacklisted as an IP address for bad behavior by Microsoft. I thought they’d disable my account. That’s one way of disabling your account.
Another cause of the packet loss, if it was say 80% or higher, would be due to a denial
of service attack. With packet loss this high, it is a denial
of service to me. I mean Microsoft might be facing a denial
of service attack, causing massive packet losses on your side. The site is up when I check it. Xbox Live
does not say it is unavailable. If you had an intermediate level of packet
loss, like 20%, I’d say to check the wireless router for interference from surrounding mobile
hotspots or wireless electronics. It is just me on the router. Anyone else in
the house has to use a wired connection. You could try a wired connection to minimize
packet loss, if the issue is a messed up router or simply one dealing with interference. This does interfere with my plans for the
day. I wanted to sync up with my friends. Multiplayer sessions can generate high latency,
but it won’t cause packet losses. However, if someone else you’re connected with has
high packet loss, that can slow down your session as bad as their latency. What else can I try? Check your NAT settings, switch it to NAT
2 if it is not already. NAT 3 can implement security settings that slow things down immensely. Do I need to reset it, too? Reset the router and the Xbox One at the same
time to maximize the odds of a restart actually fixing the issue. If nothing else, it burns a few minutes while
Microsoft fixes the glitch on their side, if their servers are to blame. You could switch games and see if that works.
One game server may have communication problems while the others are still going. If only I could play with my friends. You can still try connecting to play. Sometimes
multiplayer games show 100% packet loss but still work.
