      Xbox Live woes.

      Hi! I really REALLY need some help with xbox live.
      Recently, we switched to sky broadband and are now using a Netgear 834GT.
      Now, my xbox connects for about 10 minutes and then disconnects every time. I run the connection test and it tells me that the DNS has failed, and I cannot reconnect for about an hour. I really don't know what to do. I have trawled the internet for a solution but to no avail.

      I am using ICS.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks.

      Re: Xbox Live woes.

      ICS is by far the worst method you can use for Xbox live. At best you will be left with a MODERATE NAT. You could always buy either the Wireless Network Adapter (pricey but great bit of kit), or a cable long enough to reach your router.
      If neither of these options are possible and you still want to use your current setup then take a look here.

      If possible though try the Bridging method mentioned on the link.

      If you still get a DNS failure after this then check this link out.

      Hope this gets it sorted for you.

      Re: Xbox Live woes.

      Hi LAGER LOUT, just wondering if you can help me?
      I advance...Im havng a eeribly Annoying and stressful problem.
      Im not on sky im on VirginMedia. Im using a Beling54g Router, Never had a Problem With it, But, Ever since i had my new laptop, My pings on my XBOX360 were High.
      In the Afternoon SAy...About 12:00 - 19:00, Everything is Running smoothly like it should..Yes.
      Seeing as im on wireless you expect it too have a fault or too..But no, ive never had a ''Glitch' problem ever with my router or XBOX360 Wireless Adpter.
      As i thought it was a Common Router Problem, and so i Brought a New on, Same Router,Model and setup. As this didnt solve the problem i Went and brought a new XBOX360 Wireless Adaper.But no didn solve my problem.
      As i was mentioning before....After 19:00, on Gears of War All the servers I Find are at the lowest Connect. '' = 3 white bars for excelent, 2 yellow bars for moderate and 1 red bar for poor ''
      ive read all along the threads and even went through step by step and put a
      WEP key on my router, being i thought someone was using it....I out a 16 letter/number password init.
      Come 2 hours ago, Same problem happened again, worked fne for a couple of hours, then come 19:00 everything started ging wrong, me recognising the symptoms, I got of my Stressful A** and Rang up Virgin, they incresed the speed from too meg to 8 meg for free as they thought it was their Fault and not mine and paying for the 8 meg monthly charge for 6 months.
      Ive searchd the web and nothing helped me, tought you was the guy too talk to.
      Thanks in advance
      Mr No It All

      It would appear that Virgin Media are the problem. Look here to see that you are not alone, you may be better off switching providers if possible.
