Is this p2p restriction affecting xbox live?

I was just wondering as ever since this has come into force I've been having problems with xbox liv - if there's a game with more than 8 players you can't hear some of them talk and on moto GP 3 you don't even see them race, as well as not hearing them. Then last night on burnout revenge I couldn't even join a game as it kept telling me I could not connect with other players.

Seeing as xbox live doesn't run off a main server, but you either join or host a game with other xbox players joining you, are plusnet seeing this traffic as P2P? Is this something that other people are experiencing too?

As far as I'm aware the shaping oh p2p shouldn't have an effect on xbox live.

Is your speed in general ok?

Everything else is fine (apart from the random BTw page), and I can host games with a few people in and it works fine, but as soon as the numbers grow, problems arise. As I said, xbox live has been working fine, and no problems at all until the past few weeks.

Its only because of the way xbox live handles traffic I thought plusnet might be seeing it wrongly as p2p traffic. If I play Black Hawk Down, which is hosted on the novalogic servers with up to 50 people playing I don't get a problem, but hosting a game and having more than 3-4 people I start running into problems.

My usual speed is fine and I've no complaints with that - a steady 2mb connection.

Just a thought but could the upload speed have anything to do with it? Don't forget upload is only 256k

I don't think so - it has been working perfectly previously, and only in the past few weeks have problems arose. Nothing else about my connection or hardware has changed in this period.
