    Is this a new NTL installation ? If so you need to initialise the connection with a PC.

    However if you connect a PC directly to your cable modem it will remember the PC mac address and only allow that single PC to connect until it times out after about 6 hours I think. If you are swapping between a PC and Xbox connected you will either need to go through ICS on your PC (xbox.com tells you how to do this) or get a router to share your connection.

    If you only have an xbox then you'll probably need to purchase NTL's Xbox live kit.
