ok guys, here is a difficult one for ya: I have Blueyonder BroadBand (750K) service. got my pc running on it and all going great. connected my Xbox and finds IP and DNS, but says Xbox Live not found. Got a wireless belkin router (pc and laptop wirelessly connected, Xbox wired), and so i tried direct connection to the cable modem. power-cycled it for approx 30mins on change over. still no joy. blueyonder (as ever) say its fine on their end, maybe need to buy gamerkit from them?!? No danger. Called Xbox support... fine on their end.... HELP Tried using with different cables (x-over and patch), tried with and without router. tried releasing IP address on WinXP and powering down pc, then connecting Xbox. no joy..... So who will challange this one????
