Online games slow down when someone uses internet

as it says, someone can simply search on google and it slows fifa down to a farcical level.  anything i can do on the router to prioritise the xbox over browsing?

I would guess it depends on the router?

Hi foolishmrt,
Your Profile has never been less than 7000Kbps, so you definitely have enough speed to cope with the traffic. I can only imagine that something on your internal network could be causing that. Do you play wired or wireless?

It maybe could be suggested that his network is compromised or the person browsing is listening to internet music which would drain his bandwidth.
