Is there anyway to actually fix or reduce input lag?

I've never had any issues with input lag til this weeks DKO, menus super laggy, first game I had this happen in I thought the game was hacked as my players had no power on passes, ran sluggish af, etc. Did a connection test on console and am indicating 108 Mbps down, 21.46 Mbps up, and 80 ms latency, reset router any way, cleared MAC address but still the same issues. Am I missing anything or am I basically ❤️❤️❤️❤️ outta luck? Just frustrating as I'm not great at the game but get Gold 1 and easily win these DKO in first try if not second with no problems but the servers are just beyond ridiculous.

    Played to qualify, game worked smooth enough and got to final and I've noticed this in almost every final I've played, the gameplay changes dramatically. It goes either into a slug fest or every player is on speed. No consistency. Lost the slug fest final, try again, game flows no problem. Wtf is going on? The game has been out 9 month and still we're getting these issues. Anyone from ea got any balls to come forward and either explain why it's happening or at least say we know of the issue, we're now looking to resolve it by fifa 18. Or are we gonna get, it's your connection. The fifa community aren't idiots. Don't try and treat us like one.

    Yeah I've heard people on here say a monitor makes such a huge difference but I don't play enough to justify me getting one. Its just hilarious how inconsistent though the game has been the last week for me, just had a flawless connection and won 7-1, honestly I starting to feel like the lag is what causes the sweat more than anything as in games recently where I have input lag or whatever I can't play my normal game it's almost as if you have to play the chips and hope to get thru to have any chances whatsoever

    You shouldn't get kicked from the servers with one of these routers mate. It has a built in custom Fifa profile, all, is extremely user friendly for people who're not tech savvy.

    Ethernet cable straight into the Xbox. Solved all lag, input delay, everything. If that's somewhat of an option for you, do it.

    Always hardwired, directly into router/modem

    And you still have input delay? Wow that's astonishing. Literally have had zero lag since the day I plugged in my console.

    How do you do that?

    Also somehow got 4 good connections in a row and won 7-1, 3-0, 3-1, 4-1 with the last getting SBC Suarez's 100th goal in 86' to tie the typical attribute carded bpl team that started time wasting in the 50' along with 3 more to go along in extra time, hopefully can get some server improvements for the bpl tourney if it's Moses or some other Chelsea player I'd actually care about getting

    On your pc or laptop. Type in your IP address. Log in to your router. Look for pending updates.

    While you are logged in to your router, look for the UPnP feature and turn it off.
