Launch the Xbox speed test

Check the speed of your Internet connection by running the speed test on your console:

  1. Press the Menu button on your Xbox One controller.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Network.

Turn off your console and network equipment

Unplug the power cord from the back of the router, modem, or gateway for 5 minutes, then restart the Xbox One console as follows:

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the manual.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Restart Console.
  4. Select Yes to confirm. If you can’t access the manual or the console hangs, press and hold the Xbox button on the console for 10 seconds until the console shuts down.
  5. After the console shuts down, press the Xbox button on the console again to restart.
  6. Connect the modem or gateway first and wait until all indicators come back to normal.

Check for a weak Wi-Fi signal

  1. Open Guide.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select All Settings.
  4. Select Network.

Turn on the perimeter network function (also known as DMZ) on your router

This feature removes restrictions on Internet access by moving your device to an area outside the network firewall. You should be able to connect to Xbox Live if you enable the perimeter network feature on your router. You can also see if this has improved the quality of your connection:

  1. Click the Xbox button to open the manual.
  2. Select Settings.

Look for increased upload/download speeds and reduced packet loss (0% packet loss is best). You can also try a wired connection to your router or a direct connection to your modem.

Test another cable

  1. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the Xbox and the network device (modem, router, or gateway).
  2. Use a different network cable to connect the Xbox console and network device.
