Insane Ping Fluctuations.


Insane Ping Fluctuations.

I am by no means a tech expert, so if anyone has a solution for this issue could you please put it in laymans terms. Thanks.


Okay, so about 2 weeks ago I got myself an Xbox One to play Online Multiplayer and in the beginning it was fine then about a couple of days ago it got extremely laggy and my ping would fluctuate between 80-800 mainly staying pretty high. I tried to reset my connection a couple of times but that didn't work. Changed CAT-5 Cables and it wasn't that, went Wireless and still the same old problem. I even port forwarded the ports needed for Xbox One but to no avail.


Can anyone give me a solution please? As of now, I have a 450 dollar paperweight and am looking to remedy that.

Hi @Trithius,


I apologize for the issues you are having with your online services. I will definitely like to help. One thing that has helped Xbox One users in the past is changing their DNS address. I know when the Xbox One first launched, users were having issues with updates taking a long time, and after changing it, it helped out a lot.


The one that we suggested back then was to use Google's DNS:


Hope this helps.
