setting a static ip to xbox one x on a tp-link archer vr1600v

Level 2

Evening there folks.

Got hooked up on the NBN 100 plan with fttc, speeds are good with a good ping around 5-7ms.

Done some testing with the xbox speed test and it comes up pretty good,

95Mb down

25-35Mb up

However the ping leaves alot to be desired, 148ms. I feel as though this could be alot better.

I am using a hardwired connection.


Is there a way to bring this ping down? setting a static ip to the xbox and fowarding the nessecary ports?


Hi @kiwi_steve


Welcome to the Community!


We've managed to locate a site that will guide you on how to set a static IP address on your Xbox. Click here.


Also, we've created an article on how to forward some ports for your Xbox. Check this link.




Hi steve.

What are you doing to get a ping response of 5-7 ms?

What are you doing when the ping response is 148 ms? Is that the gaming server you use?

Can you do a ping and tracert command to the game server (if that's what it is), either from the xbox or computer?

I don't see that a static address or port forwarding will help.
