Lag seems to be improved over last night. Here's what my IT guy suggested:
1. Make sure cable modem has no firewall.
2. Get rid of any/all port forwarding.
3. Set xbox on a specific IP.
4. Put xbox in the DMZ.
I followed the port forward website and have no issues I'm aware of. It has been a year or two since I configured mine so I may not remember it all though. http://portforward.com/cports.htm
You dont need to port forward if you DMZ the Xbox since it puts it outside your network. DMZ is much quicker and easier to set up. Port forward might be a little more secure.
UPNP can be an issue but I dont remember why. Think I disabled mine on the router. If memory serves it was because UPNP takes a couple minutes to establish connections and can be problematic between different consoles running at the same time.
Static IP needed for port forwarding, not sure if needed on DMZ unless your router wants a specific IP to put there.
Make sure you have a good DNS provider too. Comcast here hasn't always been great and you can get a generally slow (no) connection while its hunting an address. May not be as much an issue now. Can't remember if I'm still using OpenDNS or not.
My router is 100% setup for my Xbox, so remember, these settings are for one device only, your PS3 or other console may suffer a bit because of it if applicable.
