I’m unable to connect to Xbox Live. I’m not too computer literate.
I have followed the basic instructions of my ISP (Tiscali) and Xbox Support, which can both be found online. Tiscali say they are fully compatible with Xbox Live.
There is an Ethernet port on the back of my PC. I think is a “NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller”. I’m using the Ethernet cable that came out to the games console’s box, which is a cross over type of Ethernet cable. I have shared the Internet connection, as necessary and I’m using a Zonealarms software firewall.
The Network Connections window shows 2 icons.
‘Dial-Up’ – Conneted, shared.
‘LAN or High-Speed Internet’ - NVIDIA nForce MCP networking Controller
I’ve tried any number of combinations within DNS & IP fields in the Xbox dashboad, NVIDIA nForce MCP networking Controller & ‘Dial-Up’, yet I’m still unable to connect.
I’m unsure where which DNS & IP addresses are supposed to match. In one particular configuration I had the message IP address conflict or something. The problem may not be only limited to this.
The best I have ever managed was to get to the ‘DNS failed’ stage on the Xbox dashboard.
I have searched through forum after forum, but can’t figure it out.
Can somebody please see to my cry for help?
