      Sky SR101 and XBox 360 - strange issue!

      Hello everyone,

      I'm hoping you can help me with a problem that's confusing me a little!

      We have just had Sky Broadband installed with the new SR101 hub. We did previously have Sky with the old dark grey Sagem router and everything worked fine. (long story but we had to cancel and re-sign up with a new phone number)

      Since getting the new set-up however, the hub will not see the Xbox - all other devices will show up in "connected devices" on the router and work fine.

      So far I've tried:

      • Connecting the Xbox with an Ethernet cable. Lights flash on the router, but Xbox still doesn't show up / connect.
      • Giving the Xbox a static IP, putting it into the DMZ on the router
      • I connected the old dark grey Sagem (I think) router back up, again everything APART from the Xbox connected fine.
      • I took the Xbox to my brother's house and tested on his Virgin line wirelessly and everything worked, so I don't thinks it's an x-box issue.


      If anybody has any ideas I would be very grateful!

      Thanks,

      Dave.

      Have you tried a different ethernet cable?

      You said you tested at your brother's house wirelessly, have you tried this option too at home?

      Did you try the Xbox in different ethernet ports?

      If the Xbox will not now connect to the Sagem, the Xbox ethernet port may be faulty.
