    Xbox Online Questions

    Ello again

    Im asking some net questions again because i wanna make sure im not going to lag on Xbox Live cause i dont wanna spend 2000$ CAN out if i cant kick some ass with some FPS games online ( I wuva the FPS).

    My computer's (which is like 4 years old) latency on speedtest.net is 49Ping on my side of NA (Nova Scotia, Canada area) and around 125Ping over on the west side of North America. Thats pretty good and thats what i usually get if its a game hosted in central North America.. (Like on Enemy Territory). Im wondering would i get the same Ping (or better maybe) on the Xbox if it was also a wired connection?

    Would wireless tone my speed down? Cause i noticed on my Wii when i tried the test it was around the same over where i live but over on the West coast was like 300ping (might be because the Wii isnt a computer and it cant detect it correctly.. or since it was wireless). Id prefer Wireless but in no way i will if its gonna cause me some lag.

    Would a wired router work if i just plugged it into my phone like and into the xbox from there? or would i need another computer to keep the router configured? (hopefully someone can anwser that for i dont gotta trot over to a computer forum).

    Its gonna be awesome when i buy all this after a few months (working part-time if you call it, around 35-45 hours a week at 7.60 a hour *im a student* )

    Thx for the help, ill post if more questions come from your anwsers.

    you should be fine
    the only time theres really lag on xbox live is when you play people over seas, sometimes playing with british people is fine, but others lag

    yes
    but that dosent matter, wireless' effect is constant, once the signal is in your modem and out the other end, it dosent matter where its going whether it was wired or wireless, it will lag depending on your internet/distance

    ohh. nvm that then lol. Ill just have to figure out how to put the modem working upstairs. (We have one of those multi-phone converter things in basement to give out 3 seperate phones. One is hooked to the computer downstairs and its phone. I geuss there would probably be a way to get another modem working in my room for the Wii/Xbox then.)

    im sorry but that math is just HORRIBLE
    the average tax rate in the US is around 7%
    7% of $100 couldnt get any easier, its 7 dollars
    20% tax would be insane and would mean were in a little war called World War 3
