Any help would be great. A little off topic but for some reason I can’t play games online with my Xbox or switch anymore because of lag. Speed test and my internet provider tell me the latency is about 50 ms but games and the Xbox tell me it’s much higher. Like 500 wireless and 250 wired. Had absolutely no problems with the internet until a few months ago when this started happening. Switched routers. Numerous phone calls to ISP. They say nothing is wrong but obviously it is. Any help would be great. I used to be able to play wirelessly online while my wife watched Netflix in the bedroom. The only change I can think of was we rearranged the setup of the room about the time the issue started but I can’t find anything that would be the problem. I am getting sick of paying for internet that don’t work when it used to work fine. Issue is with both consoles so it’s not just the Xbox or the switch.

I have friends and family that have been complaining about internet issues and I've also been having issues with my modem and router needing to be reset often... lots of lag and cut outs and stuff it's super annoying. Wouldn't be surprised if ISP's are experimenting with throttling because of the steady increase in streaming and gaming and it's messing with everyone. haha

Odd that wired is experiencing a problem.  What kind of Internet do you have?  Cable, Fios, something else?  Do you own or lease a modem?  Can you power it off and leave it off for a bit?

I live in Wyoming so it is satellite but it worked fine for two years and then all of a sudden just quit. They supply the router and I have thought about buying a router but would be really pissed about dropping a ton of money on that and then it still not working. They gave us a new router as their first solution and it made no difference. Got another new one after that with no difference again. What’s really weird is when all the issues started our download speeds and everything went terrible. Could barely check email. That has gotten better and we can watch Netflix pretty well(not as good as before the issues) but the latency issue is terrible still. Thanks for any help.

Don't know if it's been mentioned but just turned my xbox on and there was an ad to preorder ninja theory's game bleeding edge. Doesn't matter to most of us since it's launching on gamepass but thought it was cool that microsoft did preorder DLC that you also get if you play it during the launch week through gamepass.

Also get access to the beta through gamepass, interested in checking it out. It's only 2 separate days a month apart and one is valentines day.

Sorry, no idea what it could be with satellite.  Have they sent a tech out?

Don't know if it's been mentioned but there's a new December Quest on-line through MS Rewards for 500 pts. The majority of us should be able to complete this just through our MS Rewards routine.

 

1. I want in - Activate punch card

2. Complete 20 bing searches on your PC each week for 4 weeks

3. Complete 20 mobile bing searches each week for 4 weeks

4. Complete at least 3 daily sets every week for this month

Our thoughts and prayers are with you for a successful surgery and speedy recovery!

 

In other news, I got the free $5 this time around. I decided to sign up for the xCloud preview two days ago and got signed up yesterday. I wasn't expecting such a quick turnaround, now I just need buy a phone/controller clip.

 

I recently played What Remains of Edith Finch via GP. Absolutely loved it and it became an instant favorite for me.

Got the $10 last week, and the $5 this week, and hundreds of games on Game Pass and Gold until June of 2020. It's like Microsoft is trying to buy my love, and I don't mind. Also, if they keep that 5 cents a day price for Game Pass Ultimate, that free $5 gift card will pay for 100 days of it.

Whoever in this thread recently said they couldn't recommend Titanfall 2 enough, thank you. I'm playing it on PS4 right now and I'm really enjoying it. Super fun game. I'm really glad I gave it a chance.

I think there is a lot of people that would recommend Titanfall 2. It's got an really interesting campaign that doesn't overstay it's welcome. If there was a flaw in it, I think it might start a little too slowly, but after that a lot of memorable moments. Why it's a shame we probably aren't getting a 3rd one anytime soon, but if Respawn keeps doing well they can probably do what they want.

How are you getting 50 ms latency via satellite intenet? That is physically impossible since satellites have latency of 500 ms or more due to the transmission distances between the earth and space.

 

See the following article:

 

skycasters.com/satellite-internet-service-specs/system-latency/

 

I don't think there is much you can do other than switching to a different ISP with better bandwidth.

Completed everything except the Subnautica missions, and my points total is already at almost 5,000. After only five days of searches. I'm guessing that this is the exception to the rule, and that I probably won't get this many points in the future without spending a bunch of cash. Those huge point deals next week even mention buying things in their descriptions.

I misspoke. We get internet from a dish on the house that looks at a tower. I think I said satellite. I could be using the wrong words. Anyways. I had no issues for two years and played everything online perfectly and then it stopped.

Ugh. I was busy last night so I didn’t see this til today. I got the email but the offer is already invalid.
Has anyone used their rewards points for Amazon gift cards? Any problems doing so?

Never had a problem getting Amazon cards with Bing points (the email with code shows up quickly plus you can always find the code without email on Bing under your purchaes).

Between Bing, MyPoints, and Shopkick I usually keep my Amazon account stocked with credit.

From my understanding, not all accounts have the same giftcard options. For me, I see Amazon for 5250 points but I've heard others only have Target, a few others, and Microsoft (and no Amazon) as redeem options.

Thanks. Totally forgot about the Amazon gift cards until the other day.I didn’t use my points for anything during the Black Friday deals, so I’m going to use some to finish my Xmas shopping.
