Connecting to XBL but ISP requires UN/PW authentication...

To sum the issue up:

-Deployed in Afghanistan

-Only internet I have is like 256kb wired connection

-Trying to log into XBL to update games/console

-ISP has a login page where I have to put in my credentials to pull services

-Trying to figure out a way to bypass this.

 

The only solution I heard MIGHT work is to:

-Buy a cheep router

-Connect my laptop and xbox to it

-Log into site via laptop, begin to pull services

-While logged in via laptop, connect to XBL on 360, success

 

I've never personally seen ayone use this method so before I drop some cash to buy a new router I wanted to see if anyone here has done this before or has any other methods that work. I appreciate the help, thanks.

Hey Omega. Yeah really the only workaround for this is to connect to the network on another device and then login with your Xbox 360. I have seen this work with a mobile device as well, such as a tablet or phone.

Be careful out there in the Rockpile, and thank you for serving! The cheap (or spendy) router will not help, but there are three solutions,  one of which might:

 

1 Try collecting your MAC address {{ Settings | System Settings | Network Settings | name of network | Configure Network | Additional Settings | Advanced Settings | Alternate MAC Address | and the current MAC address appears on the left }} and see if the ISP can 'whitelist' your Xbox so it never has to do the credentials screen and that way you don't have to use the laptop

 

2 Use the Internet Connection Sharing method described at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978618

 

3 Try a manual update following the process at http://xbox.com/update

Thanks for the concern Vibro.

I did some more research and found that #2 seems like a reliable method. The way they have the network setup is they have one switch in the building and that switch if shooting the connection to multiple routers, one in each room. When I get back to the FOB I'm going to try every method and pretty much hope for the best then post back with hopefully positive results. My Xbox is one of the only things helping me retain my sanity out here lol.
