Lag as demonstrated how...please explain. Where is the server you are connecting to? What is the make/model/os of the PC you are running on and last...wired or wireless connection?

lag such as where my character seems like he is moving until for a few seconds he is moved back to his previous location, or vise versa im moving my character and he teleports it seems across the map. I am running a wired connection this happens for both wireless and wired connections. this lag happens on my xbox 360 console when playing gears of war 3. note on the lag this only happens for a few seconds but it happens in every game I play. Note I am using a 100 ft ethernet cable cord but I tested this out against a 10 ft cable cord and same amount of lag. as for server I'm not tech savvy so please explain.

Okay your signal levels are all good, no packet loss, so that leaves me to the way your xBox is configured and also be aware there are still known issues with GOW3 (search the internet).

That said what is your NAT status on the Xbox?

whoa actually after having the network settings go back to default it says I have a strict nat on my xbox 360. can you please check the ports Port 88 (UDP)
Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
Port 80 (TCP)
for me also I signed into my gateway and found a firewall enable could this be causing lag?

I can't check ports from here. You do need to resolve the strict NAT issue for best performance. This sounds to me like more of the same issues that are already known to be a problem with this game since it's release. This is a common complaint regardless if your provider.

What about the firewall? Leave it enabled and punch holes through it for your xbox using port forwarding.

got it! the game is running much smoother turns out all i had to do make it run nice was for the Xbox ip address to match the DMZ host at my gateway.

Am happy with Lightning. It has smoothed things out for me on Gears 3. Actually, its smoothed things out for the bots. They seemed to be killing me more efficiently. Solo Horde is hell!
