      Xbox Live & switching providers.

      I've been using Xbox Live thru my Xbox and AOL.

      If I switch provders will my Xbox Live still function undisturbed... or will the change of router cause my Xbox Live to not connect..(what with Sky Username and Password)?

      Have any of you guys had to go into your Xbox Live settings to alter anything?
      Or will your gamertag and previous settings migrate over without problems?

      Please help me.

      Your ISP is just providing the means of connecting, all you are doing is logging into the xbox live servers with info set up in your Xbox. Changing your provider will not cause any problems as long as you get your connection to the router working properly.

      If you are using a wired connection then nothing will change. If you are using the Wireless Adapter for your Xbox, you just need to re-scan from your Xbox and select your Sky router from the list, enter your network key and it will connect.
      As for your gamertag, nothing will change and everything will remain as it was.
