Thanks Starjax.... i was only able to notice a small difference when hosting with 10 gamers or less... anything over that and i experienced the same intermittent skipping... upgraded to the fastest tier on my internet service today: 5MB downstream and 728Kb upstream.... woohooo big difference now.... hosting now with 15 other gamers plus myself and i have no skipping, no lagging... runnin smooth...

If your ever online with XBox Live playing Ghost Recon Summit Strike or Halo 2 Join me....For Lag free No skip play. [same gamertag as my name on here: spacecowboy706]

Thanks, again.
