I've run numerous speed tests from various websites, including the recommended testmy.net, all of them have came back with >40mbps download speeds. During the same time that those tests were run, my Xbox Series X is downloading at horrendously slow speeds. Anywhere from 3kbs to 100kbs. Why is that? My Xbox is connected via ethernet to the modem. I've even tried allowing the ports needed for Xbox and Xbox live. Any thoughts?
And yes, I have already tried unplugging the modem from the wall numerous times.
Could you please post the URL to your My Results page from Testmy? It will look like this: https://testmy.net/quickstats/username
You may need to run some more tests using manual/fixed file sizes (25 MB for downloads and 4 MB for uploads), but something else may be the issue, so wait until you hear from a rep on this site wrt that.
Does restarting your Xbox make any difference? And do these download issues with the Xbox happen at any time of the day/night, or is it worse/better at specific times? Does the issue persist if you disconnect everything from the network but your Xbox?
There, I ran it with 25mb download and 4mb upload: https://testmy.net/quickstats/Amrobinson0351
Restarting the Xbox does not seem to make a difference. I typically do the downloads during the day so that I can monitor my data usage, if I do them at night I can't keep an eye on how much is being downloaded. Don't want to use a lot of my limit. The issue still occurs if my work computer is disconnected from the network and shut down, that is the only other device that I use on the network.
Both the download and the upload look fine; the upload speed is within the 3 Mbps for the system, and the download is more than the 25Mbps advertised. Hopefully a rep will reply and do more troubleshooting, or someone else may chime in with more ideas.
I'm no where near my old 360, but double check the settings on your X. If the UPnP setting is active, consider disabling it on the XBox as well as in the modem's wifi settings. For some reason (likely the lag) it doesn't play well over satellite.
Your test speeds are fantastic.
Though I don't know if this is the reason for the issue, some severs react terribly to the higher latency inherent to geostationary satellite internet like HughesNet, giving speeds that are much lower than what you experience with other things, including the tests.
Again, I don't know if this is what's happening here, but it's one possibility. I don't have an Xbox, so I can't check what it would be for me. I do remember a time a while back where about 600MB worth of Windows updates took something like 27 hours to download, which was absolutely ridiculous, as my overall speed was about the same as yours, in the 40s. This slow speed with the Windows updates lasted for a while, then one day it was fast again.
With this said, I hope it's something that can be remedied for you.
