Problem connecting at University.

I am using the 250G Xbox. I have run the xbox live connection test multiple time and the final connection always fails. This is due to an insufficent MTU setting. However sense I live on campus and use the campus internet, I have no way to change these settings. I have tried connecting both wirelessly and hard wired with an ethernet cable. Is there any way to get around this?

The only way I have been able to get Live to work is if I make a network bridge from my laptop via the ehternet cable. This allows me to sign into Live on the dashboard, join a party, but as soon as I go to play multiplayer it disconnects and I am forced to re-run the network test to be able to sign in. These random disconnects also occur if just on the dashboard.

As a side note, and I know this is the Xbox forum, but as comparison both my laptop and my PS3 face no issues connecting and running the internet/multiplayer.

Thanks.

Hi, some Uni's have to have devices registered before they will work, did you have to register your PC before it would connect? www.unofficialguidetolive.co.uk/.../103-how-to-connect-to-xbox-live-at-uni-or-college

Yes the internet requires a login, however last year on the same campus we could log into live and it would just be limited. The issue just seems to be the insufficent MTU that I can't seem to get around without ICS

That would suggest to me that they are blocking the Xbox live ports you would have to ask the network admin about that
