    I normally run 3/4 xboxs (xboxes?) off of my interent connection at my apartment for XboxLive. At first I never experienced any lag, now my friends and myself lag constantly, I contacted the ISP and they told me that my modem might be going bad. I pay for a 4.0 megabit/sec cable connection, and i normally clock in about 3.5 running through a linksys router, am I lagging because of too many xboxs on one connection? I am willing to buy a new modem if that is the case, just curious what you guys would recommend as far as a good one. Thanks for your help.

    check you upload speed. My previous cable had 32kbps up, it sucked... You could possibly be having speed problems because of the time of day also, if more people in your neighbor hood are online, or even if more people have suddenly signed up.
