Cant Connect to Live via ehternet port - DNS error

I am trying to connect my Xbox 360 to the internet via a ethernet cable between my laptop that is ran off of my router. I get me Xbox to connect to the network but it then times out trying to connect to the DNS server of Xbox.com. I have no idea what to do. I have tried 50 different methods of fixing this. I have tried bridging a network and internet connection sharing. Both do the same thing. 

("Your DNS servers can't resolve the names of Xbox Live server or Xbox.com" ) <-- error message

I figured it out. Just turn off your firewall if you ever have this problem, it should work fine then.

Did this solve your problem?

Hi, yes that will solve it but the firewall is there to provide protection for your PC, so you would be better off finding out how to let the Xbox traffic through on your firewall so you can turn it back on
