Xbox Live Running Slow

As of yesterday my Xbox LIVE has been going slow like taking gamerpictures/achievement pages to load up. Even when I quit to the dashboard it takes longer than usual. Could it be anything to do with me recently putting a password on my Wireless Network? I put a password on just incase neighbours etc where using my connection lol. Or could it be Xbox 360/LIVE Servers?

I also notice when I play FIFA 09 I no longer get 3 green bars for signal, I am getting 2 orange bars. But my Wireless seems to be running top notch on my laptops etc?

Please help

Mine is running fine, so I would suggest power cycling your modem and router. Unplug both from the wall and wait 30 seconds, then plug back in. This should fix the problem

Solution: Take everything and unplug everything from your Xbox, including hard drive. Then unplug your modem and router, everything. Next plug back in your xbox, and wait for the dashboard. Blow into the opposite side of the xbox of where the hard drive is. This will remove dust and things that collect inside. Next check if your Xbox is by any excess heat source like a fireplace or heater. If so, try moving it or buying a cooling device. Put everything back together and it should work fine. If not, call your phone or internet company. My problem was the phone in the basement interfered with my internet and frequency and slowed down live and disconnected me.

Isn't that to do with the console and not the internet? Just clear the cache for that.

If that doesn't work, do some port-forwarding, or reset everything like the above user said.

This has happened to me the last two days but i think it is due to GOW 2 lag cos everytime i play GOW 2 I lag then the screen freezes then it gows all slow motion on me.

It was kinda slow for me yesterday, but my connection has been halved for the time being so it's hard to tell.

Yeah I have to do that sometimes after playing high latency matches with people that don't have that great of lag. So do it often, like once a week and it should keep your net top notch.

Two of my friends and myself were having some problems yesterday... I was experiencing some lag and even got disconnected twice. This is something that has never happened before, so I'm going to have to go with Wilson and say it must've been Xbox Live acting up...

Everything seems to be fine now. Except one minor problem...Peoples Xbox Gamerpictures seem to take a little longer than usual to load. I done what everyone said like blow inside HDD etc.
