    When I'm trying to set up my xbox it says xbox live cannot be found. It does a troubleshoot and says wires are correct, IP address found, DNS thing found but xbox live not found.

    I've rung xbox up about 10 times in the past 24 hours and they've responded by telling me someone will ring back. not one person has rung back.

    i'm using ntl, with a crossover cable going straight from the set top box into the xbox.

    i'm getting sick of all this, plus my old, modded xbox won't even do link up anymore and I'm puzzled about that as well.

    No, you need a crossover cable between xbox and modem.

    Use a straight through cable to connect a hub to the xbox or hub to modem.

    Just a quick one, but the STB's (Pace from NTL) are labelled X-over if you need one, if it's not labelled it's a straight through lead you want.

    What lead do you use for the PC connection? Try using that one for the XBox.

    Cables shouldn't cost you more than a few quid (unless you go to PC World).

    Anyone you can borrow one from to test it???

    Wait, Wait a minute!!!!!!

    It say's you've got an IP Address and DNS is Resolved. This means your cable's OK, the problem is you can't get out on the net.

    With NTL (and Telewest I believe) you need to clone the MAC address of the PC used to setup your broadband account on first connection (account activation stuff). You need to find the MAC / Hardware address from your PC, then put this into the XBox (Network settings / advanced).

    Do that, restart everything and it should work.

    See you in there
