    Hi all,
    Basically i have been unable to connect to xbox live via a network bridge on my laptop for the last few days. It's confusing me because i have been using this method for several months with no issues at all yet it's now suddenly started playing up.

    The problems started when i got a brand new BT homehub 3.0 the other day so im not sure if this is anything to do with it.

    In an attempt to fix my problems i have been on to the xbox support website and followed their solutions exactly several times but to no avail. I'm not great with this technical stuff but i believe the fixes i have already attempted include;
    • Restoring xbox to factory settings
    • Resetting my hub (many times)
    • Manually assigning a new IP address to my xbox
    • Checking to see whether DHCP was enabled (it was)
    • Typing in an alternate MAC address
    It's really frustrating because i always have poor connection whilst playing xbox, especially when im using my wireless adapter which is now very old and cant hold a decent connection up. The new router came and I was thrilled when for the first night it came my connnection was perfect (that was whilst using network bridge which confuses me even more) but then it went downhill.

    Any help would be really REALLY appreciated as i'm absolutely stumped. Thanks :)
