Unable To Play Your Favorite Games Online On Xbox Live? Here Are The Troubleshooting StepsBlake Jones
Are you not able to play your favorite games on Xbox Live? Well, there is nothing to worry, as we in this blog post are going to discuss the steps to play all your favorite games including Call of Duty without taking the help of Microsoft Live customer support.
Call of Duty is one of the most popular games to play on gaming consoles. If you have an Xbox and experiencing connectivity issues while playing a Call of Duty game on your Xbox Live, then the initial step for you would be, checking the Xbox Live status page. Along with the status page, you have to check COD server status as well. As the gamin community is very well-aware of the COD versions that are available on the market. If you don’t, then let me write down the names for you.
- COD: Ghosts.
- COD: Advanced Warfare.
- COD: Black Ops II.
If you are playing COD game and its status is not at DEFCON 5, then it indicates that every single of its online service is not operating to its full capacity, and therefore, you may come across connectivity issues. You have to make efforts to bring the status to DEFCON 5.
If the status of COD game that you are playing is at DEFCON 5, then you have to take a few steps to better the quality of the connection.
Here are the basic steps that you have to follow to bring things back to working state:
1.Restart your modem/router
By doing this, you can easily resolve the connectivity issues in the fastest way imagined.
While you play the game online, kindly avoid applications that consume bigger chunks of your network’s bandwidth. Also, you must check the music and video files you are streaming, as they also take a lot of bandwidth. Downloading also slows down the speed, so keep an eye on the files you download.
If you want to play the game without any interruptions, then I would suggest to play over a wired Ethernet connection. I’m not against Wi-Fi connections, but the bandwidth in Wi-Fi connectivity doesn’t remain the same for a long period of time, and if it gets down anytime, then your game is going to affect. With wired connection, you will see that the minimum bandwidth that is required to play games online is maintained. If this doesn’t work for you, then you can take Microsoft Xbox live support.
How to test Xbox Live connection?
- The first thing that you will have to do is turn on the gaming console. Make sure that there is no disc inside the console. Once the device is turned on, go to ‘Xbox Home’. If you are not able to go to ‘Xbox home’, then please go to Microsoft Xbox support for precise assistance.
- Then, go to ‘Settings’ and choose ‘Network’.
- You will see an option by the name of ‘Test network connection’ on the right-hand side of the screen.
- If by doing this test, you are able to find the fault in the connection, then you will see an error message as well. This message will let you know as to where your connection has failed. You will also see troubleshooting steps to fix this problem, so follow those steps and bring the entire mechanism back to its working state.
If you want, then you can also run a test multiplayer connection to find out the issues that have resulted in disconnects, lags and other network issues related to the game.
You can take the help of Xbox live support providers to fix the issues that you have been facing. They will be able to help you in the best possible way. If none of the above-mentioned steps work for you, then the last resort for you would be Xbox com support. Another great thing about Xbox support is that there are many companies providing support for all the models of Xbox that are currently being sold on the market.
