I live and work on a college campus. My laptop is running windows 7 and connects to the college's wireless network which is very fast. When I first connected to the network I had to input a static ip address which was given to me by my boss. It was the ip address, gateway, subnet mask, and two DNS servers. They work perfectly on my laptop.
I have an external wireless network adapter on my xbox 360 and I tried changing the ip address etc to something similar to the ones I was given and tried using the same DNS servers I was given and received a DNS error.
After having trouble with this I tried to ditch the wireless adapter and use a bridge connection via ethernet cord between my laptop and 360. On my laptop it says the connection is bridged and ready to go. When I try to connect to Live it shows up with a MAC filtering error. I used cmd ipconfig /all on my laptop to get an alternate MAC address to input on Live which ended up not working and I got the same error.
I am at a loss what to do now. I can't just access the router because I'm on a college campus and don't have any control over that sort of thing. Please if anyone knows how I can get around this and just connect to Live I would greatly appreciate it!
