I'm in a college dorm, and I can't connect to my router using my xbox's wifi adapter, and there are no ethernet ports in the room.. so I'm trying to connect to LIVE through my computer. My friends have been able to do it successfully using their PCs and a program called virtual router. Macs, however, don't have that feature, for some reason, and I have to do it all manually...
So I want to connect to xbox LIVE through my mac, and I have to do everything manually because it's a mac (inb4 macs suck)
On my Xbox I've connected to the Network but I can't connect to the Internet, and every time it doesn't work it says to check my DNS settings. And I'm using some random router at my school and I can't seem to get the DNS server address from them. I've tried a variety of tactics including several commands in terminal which basically ends up in an automated response generated from my school which gives me two different DNS numbers (also: why do they give me two?). I've tried all of these numbers and they don't seem to work.
However, there's another thing. Several tutorials tell me to set up an Ethernet connection on my Mac, and under that connection I should choose "Manually" under "Configure IPv4" (whatever that means..). To save you from my ignorance, here's a pic..?
But, after about 30 seconds of connection to the Ethernet network, my internet stops altogether, and I can't reach any sites on any of my browsers. So... I don't know what that's about..
I think it comes down to finding my school's DNS server address.. but I'm not entirely sure as I'm not very tech savvy with this stuff..
All I can offer as a reward for anyone who gets it working is a 14 day xbox live access code.... yeah...
I've posted this on other forums so i'll give the code to whoever (if anyone) gets LIVE to work first :P (I'll update the thread if it happens)
If you have any other questions feel free to ask. Thanks.
PS: I'll <3 you forever and ever if you get this to work. I'm out of ideas at this point, I just wanna play some battlefield again :C
