      Problems connecting to EA servers (fifa)

      Hi all. Never really had a problem with my gaming on my Sky broadband up until now.

      I play a lot of Fifa10 and it's been perfect but recently when I turn on the game, load it up, pass through the sign in screen, a small box will pop up saying 'Unable to access the EA servers, please try later'. All weekend I thought it was a problem on EA's side of things so I kept checking back and restarting my Xbox but then noticed my friends can still play fine.

      Anyway I tried turning my router off and on, restarted the game, and it let me log straight into the servers. So i thought that had solved the problem but I've just tried it again and the same thing has happened but I had to restart my router twice for it to finally let me in which is no good.

      Is there something amiss with the settings on my router? I have run the Xbox live test and i have no NAT issues apparently which someone did suggest to me.

      Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

      Try using OpenDNS servers in your Xbox instead of automatic.
      208.67.222.222
      and
      208.67.220.220
      Also give your box a fixed IP address.
