    I feel my problem is very similar to this thread:


    I'm connected to the internet via 3 Mobile Broadband as well, except i'm using it to try to connect to Xbox Live. I followed the instructions in that thread and instead of picking up a 169. address my 360 is picking up a 192. address, which is probably good. But still my connenction test is failing at the internet step. I'll try to give as much information as possible. I know that this broad setup should be working because i was connecting fine during the summer.

    IP Config:

    In the Network and Sharing Center, my 1.3G connection is a home network and the Local Area Connection is appearing as an unidentified public network. The IpV4 properties for the LAC are:

    And the settings on the Xbox 360:

    That's about all i can think of! I would really appreciate any help. I've been trying to fix this for hours, toying with all the settings. Still failing the connection test at the internet step though, with no specific error message.

    First Name:
    "IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No" indicates that ICS is not enabled, even though it appears to be, as your Xbox is assigned a good IP configuration. Suggest that in Network Connections you disable ICS, 'Apply' or 'OK' the whole way out of Network Connections, then go back in and re-enable ICS.

    Those network designations in the Network and Sharing Center are disconcerting. The fact that the ethernet is Public may mean that the Windows firewall is blocking the Xbox and may also be the cause of the 'No' for IP Routing.

    If you are counting on the Windows firewall for protection the direct connection (Mobile wireless) to the internet should be Public.
