BT Home Hub and Xbox Live

Hi,

I've been trying to connect to Xbox Live using my BT Home Hub 3 for about 2 hours now. I was wondering if anybody knew how it is done. I've read a lot about all sorts including port fowarding, NAT settings & some other things.

I would appreciate it if somebody knew what I had to do in the Hub Manager and also what network configurations I need to set up in my settings on the Xbox.

Thanks in advance!

to be honest it should be very straight forward,System/network settings/wireless network.then setup your connection and enter your wireless key on the removable tab in the hub,should work fine without further alterations

My Xbox hasn't got built in wifi, which is why I'm using an ethernet cable.

I'm getting the error "your dns server can't resolve xbox live server names".

My xbox connects to the network but not the internet. 

And I have tried setting Googles DNS servers and the OpenDNS servers, which resulted in it not even connecting to the network

if you reset your router and connect your Xbox with cable it should automatically be set and ready to go

Still no luck here. My Home Hub isn't even picking my Xbox up in the Devices section in the Hub Manager.

Ok, so what exactly are you wanting?

A port forwarding walk through or something else?

My partner works for BT as an engineer, installing hubs are fixing them, if you can give me more info and what you are asking, then I can ask the questions for you. :)

CadetChik - I have an Xbox 360, a Home Hub 3 (Type A) and an ethernet cable. My Macbook is connected to the Home Hub wirelessly, and I have an ethernet cable from my Xbox into my MacBook (with internet sharing enabled from my wifi to my ethernet).

I just can't seem to connect to Xbox Live doing this. However, when I first tried it, it was fine and my Xbox was listed in the Hub Manager under devices. However, when I turned my Hub off for the night and went to connect to Xbox Live the next day, it didn't work and it's now not in the devices list. I've tried resetting the hub, that didn't work. And tried to manually configure the Xbox network settings, but couldn't fathom it out.

What I get from my Xbox is "IP address error, can't obtain an IP address from your router or modem".

I've read a lot about people being successful with port forwarding for this problem, but I don't know what to do with it.

Shad0wmanUK - Yes, my hub picks up other networks, and there are loads of other devices that have been able to connect with it such as phones, kindles and other laptops.

Portforwarding won't help with this its likely a wireless security issue, what form of wireless security are you using? WEP/WPA/WPA2?

Is your SSID/Network name all one word (i.e. no spaces)
