connecting to x-box live !!!!!!

still no joy connecting to x-box live. am using a direct link using a D-Link modem. so far i have input the following:

1) IP ADDRESSES
a) manual configuration
b) IP address (i've found my static IP here)
c) Subnet mask (255.255.255.0 - kindly donated by someone here)
d) Gateway (same as my static IP)

2) DNS SERVERS
Manual config again and the primary and secondary servers being ~.13.49 and ~.13.50

3) PPPOE SETTINGS
Manual config
a)User name (my Plusnet login name)
b) Passwaord (plusnet password)
c) Service name (Do I need to put anything hereHuh??)

4) ADVANCED
a)Wireless - not a wireless connection
b) HOST NAME (Does PLusnet require a host name and if so what is it?)
c) MAC Address (found this in my network connection settings)

can anyone tell me what's missing or what i've done wrong? Do i need to contact Plusnet to have any ports unblocked?

If you are connecting it behind your router and assuming you don't have a block of static IP addressed the IP address of the XBox should be 192.168.x.x at a guess. You will have to check and see what IP address your router is on and choose one in the same range. If you put in your ADSL static IP address then it won't work.

have tried letting it do it automatically but had no joy which is why i'm trying to manually configure it. the only game i'll be playing when i get live is Halo 2. anyone else bought it. went through campaign and was dissapointed. thought it would be much better than it was. played it on x-box live at a friends and it's great .

i'm not behind a router (yet). i've been connecting my x-box directly to my modem. as i understood it i had to input my static adsl IP address and use my pc's Mac address for my x-box.

how do i find out my modem's IP address is then?

You cant set it up via ics. Its the easiest way eva. You have a crossover cable right and what operating system do you have HuhHuh?

It WAS easy to setup. Just having XBox Live connect isn't working. Of course I have a crossover. I'm a Network Technician. My OS is XP Pro.

I can play XBox Connect, so I know that my computer is set up properly. I'm just wondering if there is something else that could be done.

Is your version of xp pro oem version as i hear some oem versions dont have ics. Update drivers maybe. Maybe a firewall is blocking it out

Then i have no idea why it dont work for ya. It just dont make any sense. All i can surgest now is ring xbox up or sumert. I mean the way i set it up is via ics and all i do it enable sharing on that network card and plug in the cable and bamm works.


Sorry for no being able to help any further

I'm not sure whats wrong.. what firewall are you using? have you opened the correct ports for XBL.

ICS works a treat for me so you should definatly be able to get it working.

I use ICS and I have no luck. I've gotten all the way to "Connecting to XBox Live!" And I just get the message saying that it can't connect. I get the IP and DNS just no XBox Live.

I need to get this fixed so I can 0wn on Halo 2.
