Xbox & Speedtouch 510v4 router

Hi

I have just tried to connect my Xbox to the 510 and nothing, they just don`t seem to be communicating at all.

The Xbox just says can`t make connection check cable, but I have tried 4 different cables !

The router shows no sign that the Xbox is connected, no lan lights.

Anyone got any ideas as I`m stumped

Thanks

Jon

What type of cable are you using, It should be a straight for connection to a router. If you have a cross and a NIC in your PC (which you must) try a direct connection to the PC, allocate your Xbox with an IP and try and ping it, you wont see it any other way.

Silly question but you have tried all the port's on the router.

Other that that I'm not sure. I know the Xbox can be given a MAC address so it works with your IP but this is probably furether down the line.

Have you any mates with an xbox, try their's and see if you get any lights.

Regards

Dave

Don't worry to much, from what I've been told they turn them around quite quickly.

Hope you get I soon, what games are you going to be playing.
