      Xbox live connection

      Hi there, I was wondering if anyone can help me with trying to connect xbox live using Sky Broadband. Until recently I have been able to connect to Xbox live, now i just keep being kicked out of Live whilst waiting to access games.

      I have spoken to Xbox and they say I have to open certain ports, change the Mac address and wireless channel. I have a white netgear on channel 6, is it possible to access this information through these Netgear?

      Has anyone else had this problem? I have spoken to Sky and they say Netgear do the advanced support and Netgear say the opposite, if anyone could give me some advice that would be great.

      Thanks loads in advance,

      A frustrated Xbox Live fan,

      p.s. technical matters are not my strong point so if you can keep it simple that would be great.

      Have you tried with a wire, check it works with ethernet before doing anything else.
