    Game taking hours to install update


    I only play the the xbox like twice a month so everytime there’s some sort of update for a game which takes hours, sometimes up to 5. I have fast Internet. This is a huge problem for Microsoft. I won’t be getting any new xboxes because of this problem.

    :)

    Hi,

    You've said your connection is fast, but how fast is it?

    Making sure you have nothing downloading on any of your other devices, go to
    www.speedtest.net
    run the test and post your results.

    Thanks.

    Hi Dunndeal3,

    If you are noticing significant slowdowns and lag or network issues even when no other device is having similar issues then you may want to try the following steps to see if any help resolve your issues.

    1. If able to hardwire into your modem always do so as it is your optimal connection type. Even if only for testing purposes this will help determine if the issue is with wifi or potentially entire network connectivity/ISP.. if already wired then, Change
    your network LAN cable to a high speed Cat 7 cable or Cat 8 as they are rated to support ultra high speeds where Standard cat5 or cat 6 cables do not typically handle higher than 1GB and actual speeds can be affected based off of length of cable and quality
    of cable as well as if the RJ45 connector tip is loose or not punched down on the wires correctly.

    2. If on Wi-Fi ensure that your network security settings are using at least WPA-2 and not an open network, and that your network SSID name being broadcast is unique and broadcasting in both 2.4ghz and 5Ghz bands. Also ensure that you have UPNP enabled on
    your modem and that you have set up port forwarding to the recommend ports listed by Xbox to ensure open NAT which is needed for best quality online live service and multi-player gaming. Here is the link about what ports should be forwarded-

    3. Set a reserved static IP for your Xbox on your modem and also set the static information in your Xbox network settings. Also try changing your DNS settings on your Xbox to manual and set an open DNS IP address like Google or other provider. Google DNS
    is 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

    4. Check your modem configuration to ensure that DHCP is enabled if not using a static address, as well as make sure that your lease times are set to no more than a day or two. This will help release the IP lease faster clearing the table if you have many
    devices connected and force a reassignment of IPs to only active devices.

    5. Perform a system reset without removal of apps or games to ensure caches are cleared and the system is running fresh with no stored configs.

    6. Another great test if hardwired is connect another device to the same cable and see if it too has issues, that will inform you if line or modem/config related or hardware issue.

    7. Last thing I would recommend is speaking to Xbox tech support to further troubleshoot to help determine if a hardware failure and if service is needed as sometimes wifi cards and lan port do fail or a pin can get bumped out of place when connecting or
    disconnecting cables.

    Here is a link to check the status of Xbox Live services for outages or issues as well in case there are issues that may be affecting your area.

    Good luck and hope something here helps!

    Game Taking Hours To Install

    Cancel installation, disconnect from internet and then install while disconnected, had this same problem with games on the Xbox One and my PC. Once you reconnect you still won't be able to play the game until it has been updated which in itself tends to
    take a while.
