Re: x box dns server

It might help if you told us how your XBox is connected up to your network, AND list all the network properties in the Xbox network configuration page.  Sad
While I'm not an Xbox expert, I did connect one up last year for someone, and it just worked first time - so I don't think there is anything too tricky (unlike trying to get a reliable connection on a PS2  Angry)

Re: x box dns server

I had the same issues connecting to live.
Also is it the new shape xbox with the built in wi-fi or the old shape one with a wireless adapter .....
Perhaps the suggestions i had in this thread will help you it's all pretty much straight forward buddy.

Re: x box dns server

Have you gone into Xbox settings and added your IP into the router settings Jakey ?, When you select Xbox Live in settings you then need to type in the IP address then select save and see if that gets you connected.
