Xbox Live Blocked at College

Ive posted this before but received little help. The problem is that I've gone off to college to find out that that my university uses some sort of software to completely block out Xbox Live usage.

Things I've tried

: - Connecting xbox through Mac via internet sharing: fail (MTU Failure on xbox live test)

- Connecting xbox to internet through router bought from walmart: fail (MTU)

-Calling IT department and asking if there is a MAC address work around for Xbox Live: fail

If anyone has any suggestions on how to get around this problem it would be greatly appreciated. An alternative would be to tether my Xbox to my phone and use the mobile network, but I'm not sure how much data this would use up per month, which makes this an undesirable choice. Again, if anybody can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

If they have blocked the Xbox live ports I doubt you'll get around it. I know you've mentioned mac address workaround but have a look at this anyway:-

Did this solve your problem?
