I need some advice on how I can increase the speed of my Xbox live connection. It was working fine up untill a week or so ago, but now its so bad I can't even find any games on live. I used other wireless stuff from the same place I used my Xbox and they say the connection is fine. Even when I do a test on Xbox its perfect, but I can't download or play anything. Can I get some easy to understand advice here?

There are a ridiculous amount of things that can cause interference with your internet connection (especially wireless ones) and many which are simply out of your control.

A good start would be to use a wired connection instead of wireless. It's probably a mess to deal with in terms of wires, but a wired connection is better than a wireless connection. If the speed is still the same across the network then something is hogging all the bandwidth, either on your router network or your ISP network. Where it is, I don't know and that's for your to investigate. If you have not done so, forward your ports for your X-Box (if you don't know how to do this, Google it. The first step is to go out and do research, there are plenty of how-to articles telling you how to do this).

I would suggest repairing your connection and if that doesnt help then switch to a wired connection like Neo said.
