    I don't mind hosting again, but perhaps we need to try some other hosts as well. China wasn't exactly smooth for some

    I think i may give that a go Karl - been looking on ebay and i can get a 15 meter ethernet cable for a fiver. Certainly worth a try

    Do you think it would make much of a different running a wired connection as opposed to me using my wifi adapter for xbox?

    How much of a difference it makes will depend on a lot of things, but wired is always better.

    like Mark says, plus it just eliminates an element that may or may not cause an issue.

    I don't think there has ever been anything to prove that wireless causes any particular issues. We've had disconnections from people on both wired and wireless connections. I remember one of the worst lagging cases we saw was from someone on a wired connection some time ago.

    Ive only ever DC'ed three times in 4 seasons and all 3 of those occasions was when I tried moving to the spare room and using the WiFi adaptor. But thats not to say that WiFi categorically causes any issues for others.

    My comment was referring to a wired connection in general. Not specifically to this game. With that said, wired is always better.

    If everyone had the same router, modem, wires, and speeds, a wired connection would always be better than a wireless. Obviously not everyone has the same hardware, so there are going to be outliers. What you're referring to has a lot more to it than whether the person was on a wired or wireless connection. It could have been a combination of a poor router, modem, wires, and up/down speeds. That he was on a wired connection is irrelevant.
