Does a different xbox work on the 827 and does it exhibit the same speeds?
What are your wireless settings set for currently?
Do you have 20/40Mhz Coexistence options on the 827?


Maybe someone can review your router settings with you using Link> teamviewer if your interested. Its safe and secure.

Let us know.

I do have another xbox, but it's the phat model with a wireless 610n bridge.  So not exactly apples to apples.  I'd get a buddy's, but I'm the only grown up on the street that actually has one.  All the neighborhood kids are sub 10 and on the wii ;)

I did find the "co-existance" tab and disabled it.  Unfortunately, it still locks down at 11 mbps.  I'm currently set on WPA2 with 2.4GHz and auto 20/40hz.

LOL understand. I think I'm the only grownup on my street that plays xbox.

What wireless modes are you using currently.
I would try your other xbox, even if it's not apples to apple. Would be good to know if a different one with wireless does the same thing or not.
How far away is the xbox from the router?

Haven't seen anyone else with xbox wireless report this issue...yet.

Ha... ok, Xbox S with internal wireless at 11M and 96% signal.  Old Phat xbox with bridge at 124M and 100% signal.

Really, this is a moot point for most people.  My dorkiness takes it up a bit.  You figure most folk have a pipe at 3mbps or better with their ISP.  If the xbox is connecting at 11Mbps there's no bottle neck.  Most folks don't stream HiDef over their network to the xbox, so they would never even see the issue.  Even less use the media center extender app.  I'd say there's probably about 100 of us... maybe a 1000 tops.  I think most of those folk gave up on wireless and just hardwire.  For me, everything worked on the 655, although a little sluggish.  On the 827, 11M isn't cutting it to even watch lo-def TV.

Ok, Lets us know that at least a different wireless bridge is working. So there maybe an issue between the wireless on the 360 S and or the wireless on the 827. I'm leaning that the 827 wireless is working as it is connecting at higher speeds with other devices. Yes the wireless is different on the other xbox however does help us see that the 827 is working at faster speeds.

I think the only thing would be now, find you a loaner 360 S to test out and see if it does the same thing. If so, then you can tell DLink that 2 360 Ss are doing the same thing on the one 827. Not if the loaner test 360S doesn't exhibit the same thing and seems to connect at faster speeds, this will tell you that the problem maybe with your original 360S. I won't say that there isn't a problem with the FW either. I just want to see if we can narrow down any possibilities here and see if any of this can be testing with a different xbox 360 S.

I do agree, sometimes I stream on my xbox in the bed room and in most cases it works ok. I think the processing of video isn't the greatest though a I do see some pixelation here and there. Even on my Gb network.
I wonder sometimes if it's the Media Center doing it or what. Recently is seems that xbox can't process DVD files well as before. Also could be how they are being processed to the HDD as well.  :-\

One thing I would recommend to you, regardless of the wifi speed and such with the xbox, if your going to be streaming any video from one device to another, I highly recommend getting a external Gb network switch and connect all wired PCs and devices to it. This will greatly help in keeping high data xfer rates needed for video streaming and help eliminate any unnecessary router processing. I've used one for years and they work well.

So...it would be good if you could test out a 2nd xbox 360 S just to see if that is doing the same thing as the first. Then we can figure out a course of action.

Also please let us know if we can get someone to review your router settings with you using Teamviewer. Might help with doing some troubleshooting.

Hi Furry,

Sorry, late to the "Party", the E-mail message notification does not work any longer for this forum, I will check the settings in a minute.

I do have multiple Xbox's but after fighting the Xbox's WiFi issues I bit the bullet and ran a Cat-6 cable and a switch to them for my late teen early 20's kids. When they were on Wifi it was a different problem everyday. As you know I have a high power A/P also to cover my property, it is not D-Link. I found during testing that the Xbox slims REALLY like the older A/P circa 802.11G, the slim took me and my decades of technical knowledge and flushed it. My kids have gaming parties 3,4,5 Xbox's at a time on my network, the slim has never played nice with any of my 802.11N adapters(including my old DIR-825). I know Xbox slim fans are VERY protective about their machines, but the built-in wireless in them defies everything I have tried, we are not talking hours, we are talking weeks and months of trials of trying to make the slim happy. Another problem is they are deaf! Not the problem in this case but an observation. My A/P outputs 1-watt, at 35-ft the 360 slim calls this 1-bar or weak, my Android phone and a service monitor call it a great signal at 35-ft, in this case a $10K service monitor trumps a 360, sorry. At this time during testing I have tried the Slim with a DIR-827, DIR-825, Fios router w/ WiFi, no name Chinese A/P(1-watt), Linksys WAP, Netgear router. Finally the slim smoked after 18 months, he wont's sell it to me to put in my skeet launcher, I think this is his 3rd slim that has died after a year.

Go wired and save your sanity or use a older A/P for wireless with the Slim 360's. A family of 5 uses my Dir-827 DAILY, the only problem with the WiFi was the Xbox slim, out of 10 other devices in use daily.

I have since switched to the DIR-827, I loved my DIR-825 for ease of setup and getting along with other devices, the 827 has bettered the 825. I never have to think about it, it just works! I'm still using 1.02, not in a hurry to take a chance with 1.03. The nice thing about the Dir-827, the 5-GHZ covers my whole home with my laptop and a upgraded radio in my laptop(3000+ SF).


Later,

Pat

Hey Patrick,
Yes, the email activation and notification server(s) are not working for some reason.  >:(

Thanks for the feedback. I presumed that most of the issue lies with the slim and not with the 827.

If you get a chance, can you do one test, turn off your big AP and all other devices and connect your one slim to the 827 via wireless and see what speeds it's it's connecting at on Mixed G and N and single mode N? I'm curious what yours can connect at.


I think that slim wireless has never been the greatest and the only way to get around that is to either use hard wired LAN cable, MS 5Ghz USB xbox adapter or use a D-Link DAP model AP/Bridge and connect the slim wired LAN cable to the DAP or use similar AP/Bridge device. This will eliminate the substandard built in wireless on the slim and provide better wireless connections and flexibility for it. My 2 cents.


Let us know was results you seen when you get time.

Thank you.

Sorry Furry,

The Slim PHYSICALLY smoked and it was out of warranty, the last Xbox we have is an older one with no wireless. I think he has been through 1-2 previous slims that have went bad, the out of warranty price to fix them is fairly high and my Wife put an end to that. However the older model that I purchased with the built in HDMI port has been running for years without a problem. No RROD or smoke :o

If he gets another for Christmas I will be glad to give it a shot if/when and report back.

Understand...

Ya, feel the Slims have been problematic since the start. I've used the MS 5Ghz USB adapter on my 1st Gen 360 and never have had any problems with it. Works well for when I travel and take my 360 with me.  ;)

Been a while.  I went back to the 827 since I hard wired my other xbox.  Decided to bug technical support.  They sent me to level three, then told me to get em some pics and logs.  Here's the email.  We'll see what happens ;)

Dlink Support,

Please see attached log files for both the DIR 827 and my legacy router, the DIR 655.  I've also attached 3 sets of photos for each of the three conditions.  See the following thread for previous troubleshooting experience.  My handle is SL0MAR.

Good to hear that they have responded.

I'll have a look with this as well and check on this. I have a roommate now that has a 2nd Gen xbox and we are currently using it with a Bridge so he's on 300Mb on 5Ghz connected to a DGL-4500 in AP mode. I'll have him connect to my 655 currently online right now and see what the speeds are.

Hope Dlink can reproduce this and get a fix in. Keep us posted.

Just FYI, I connected my Xbox S to wirelessy to another non Dlink router to test. And while this router doesn't show connection rates, I downloaded the Xbox Internet Explore App and saw download speeds up to 8MBps, which equates to around 32Mbps. So the Xbox, at least mine, is not capped at 11Mbps. Just thought I would add that to help isolate the issue.

It should be noted that the Xbox is 4feet away through 1 wall so my test was pretty much best case scenario.

I can only use 1 router at a time  :P Thats on lend to a friend who needed a new router because his didn't support UPnP but couldn't afford anything better. Just like maybe I might lend the router I have now when/if I get the DGL-5500. Maybe to my parents..not sure.

All I wanted to see is if the Xbox S wireless had a 11Mbps cap, since that was the question of the OP. Answer is no.
