and the crazy part is, the Xbox that is slow is closer to the router than the one that downloads just fine.
they're both slims, one of them is a limited edition console, the other is just a regular 250gb, so they're basically the same thing.
on the limited edition, I was able to quickly download patches, demos, etc without any sort of trouble.
on the 250gb slim, downloads are extremely slow, the progress bar doesn't really move, and eventually it times out or whatever and I'll get any of a variety of error codes that don't seem to stand for anything (I don't get results when I search for them online).
I don't understand what the problem is. could this be a console defect? something with the network adapter?
